Week 3: Progress Post & Making Changes to my Diet

After a rough week last week, I had a MUCH better time this week. I felt so miserable and I am still not 100% sure what was causing it—but I have a few ideas. I started questioning my diet and decided to make some changes.

I recently announced that I was following the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle and that I had learned a lot about nutrition from the program—and I have. But I’m not sure my body loves every aspect of the program, or at least how I was following the program.

This past week, I decided to go out on a limb and trust myself to eat my way—based on principles I learned by following Trim Healthy Mama and Weight Watchers. With the way I was feeling, I just had this intuition that the way I was eating wasn’t doing my body good. So I listened to my body this past week and I feel 100% better.

I really, really, really like not having to track ANYTHING on Trim Healthy Mama and so I have been continuing that while I eat in my own style. It makes me really nervous. I have to stay very mindful. When I go to the kitchen for a snack, I have to ask myself if I’m eating the right serving size for how hungry I am, am I choosing a food that is good for me, etc. Is this something I can keep up? I hope so—but it does scare me! My weight loss will tell—I can always re-evaluate and count calories or something as neede.

And the results? I lost exactly the weight that I gained the previous week—so this week I lost 1.3 lbs. for a total loss of 3.4 lbs. I’m happy with that because I’m still averaging over 1 lb. per week. The goal is to lose an average of 1 lb. per week

What I did well this week: I am the most proud of meeting my workout goal this week. I’m making small steps to hopefully make exercise a regular part of my week.

What I could improve on: Eat more veggies. Sometimes when baby is fussy, I quickly throw together a lunch I can eat quickly and don’t take the time to add a veggie.

On another note, I want to thank those of you who take the time to leave a comment now and again—they’re really appreciated and help inspire me to keep blogging!


  1. (Nice) Comments definitely help! :) You know your body better than everyone. Sounds like you listened well to what it was saying! :) Congrats on that loss!

  2. Great comments! I don't like tracking things either. Looks like a great loss--keep it up! Totally agree w veggies--try to eat those first. They load you with nutrients and are low calorie. Plus it helps you avoid over eating on junk, that is, if you eat intuitively which it sounds like you are:)
