One Month Nutrition Check In Results (Weigh In Wednesday)

I made it!! I survived my first month on my new nutrition plan! And I am ready for month 2!!

To be honest I had no idea what to think when I first started on this new plan. To break it down for you I am basically eating 6ish meals a day, switching between Low Calorie (1600) and High Calorie (2000) days. It’s not just about the calories though, I also have a personalized breakdown of macronutrients (Protein-Fat-Carbs). Please keep in mind that nutrition is SUCH a personal thing. What works for me may not work for you. It really is all about figuring out what works for YOU. And this is working for me! My last check in was 2 weeks agoΒ and since then I have:

dropped another 1.43% body fat
lost 2.86lbs of fat
GAINED 1.1lbs of lean mass
lost 9mm on the skinfold test
lost 1.25″ overall

Say whhhhaaat! That feels SO good. The scale this morning was at 186.2! Seriously the lowest I ever remember being in my adult life. The morning I first went to check in with my nutritionist I weighed in at 192. So 6lbs on the scale, but I moved around some fat for muscle in the process… which is exactly what I want! So check out my total results from Month 1…

HUGE!!! I’m so excited about these results. I felt so lean when I went in for my check in. It is such a great feeling! We changed up a few things for the next few weeks to make sure I don’t stall… I have a dreaded history of crapping out on weight loss after a few weeks. Progress feels good. After fighting through some slumps and plateaus it’s nice to feel good about what I’m doing. I’m the busiest I’ve ever been, but I’ve made eating right a priority. I take it one meal at a time, one day at a time. Progress happens when you’re consistent. And I have proof.

Seriously, what a difference a year makes! I hope you all know you CAN do this too. Just take it one meal at a time, one day at a time!

What progress are you celebrating today?

    Today I’m celebrating the process of being able to balance processed foods and not over do it. It’s definitely a process!

  3. Congrats! That is awesome progress! I know everyone is different and YMMV… but Would love to hear more about what exactly you are eating and what kind of changes you made to prevent a plateau! (or if it is something proprietary that you can’t share… would be good to know that too).

  4. Great job on the loss. How do you handle your 6 small meals and food for your husband/kids? I try to eat cleaner, but struggle with a husband who refuses to eat “my health food”, and when I bake sweets, he asks me if it’s “real” (He caught me putting a banana and greek yogurt into pumpkin bread.) Most times I feel like I’m cooking twice for each meal. Or we will have the same lean meat dish with different sides.

    1. I make the same breakfast, he usually eats leftovers or something easy for lunch, I eat my “second lunch” by myself and we do have different dinners. I use the crockpot for his and the kiddos meals. All my meals are usually pre-prepped so it’s pretty quick to cook it up. It is just a matter of how much work you’re willing to do for it. Everyone is at different levels, ya know. This is working for me right now… will it work forever? Probably not. But this season the extra work is worth it.
