Weigh In

I started my diet/exercise plan a few days before New Year. I am not for sure what day I was actually weighed but I know my starting weight was 177. I weighed in today and I weigh 171! I have lost a total of 6 pounds and I could not be happier! I have been working out 5-6 times a week, doing some cardio workouts, small weights, and walking/jogging a mile when the weather permits. I am on cloud nine right now! Losing weight felt impossible! I have changed my diet  following some of  Reyna@Glamour Glory tips. Which you can read about here. She is awesome and she has motivated me so much! Reading her posts and seeing her before and after pictures have inspired me! She is an awesome person! Go check out her page and see what I am talking about! I would like to get down to my healthy weight which is around 135-145. I will be happy at 140. I have always fluctuated between those weights until I got on the nasty Depo-Provera shot {birthcontrol}, and I started school! I have about 31 more pounds to lose! I am hoping to be able to lose my weight by the time I start school back in August. I plan on maintaining my weight from there with regular exercise and healthier choices!
Gosh, I am still just so excited!

I have one question for you though...I am interested in taking the Whey Protein supplement they sell at Walmart but my husband told me not to because that is to get bulky. Is that true? What would you suggest?

  1. That is so awesome! Good for you :) I use to give Whey to my son for the protein when he was younger...just made him milk shakes with it. Not sure about making you bulky though. Maybe it depends how much you have?

  2. Thanks! I am really excited! I will have to look further into it. I think it will be beneficial for me to drink the protein shakes, but hubby is a know it all so I always have to prove him wrong!

  3. If you are using weights and want to add bulk use the protein, if not, don't. It will just add extra calories for nothing.
