A big day for Weigh-In Wednesday! :) Today we welcome our new co-host, Winter from No Drama Little Mama! Winter has been linking up with us for a long time and has lost almost 50 lbs. on her weight loss journey! We hope you'll check out her blog and join us in welcoming her as a host to Weigh-In Wednesday!
I also want to thank one of my very favorite bloggers, Erin at Love, Fun and Football, for creating our new link-up button! In addition to being one of everybody's favorite blog reads, Erin is also a great blog designer! She's designed over 100 blogs and can help with any blog needs, big or small!
Now onto Weigh-In Wednesday without a weigh-in :) I'm 23 days into Whole30... 23 freakin' days! On one hand it's gone by fast and I'm so grateful for all I've learned... on the other hand, I'm so.freakin'.bored. with food. That's my own fault because I definitely need to change things up and try new recipes... but I haven't branched out much which means I've been eating a lot of the same foods over and over and over again. But even so, I'm really so thankful to this Whole30 for teaching me so much about food and the way my body works.
Oh and let's take about jeans :) I'm nowhere near the size I want to be in jeans but I am officially back down a size... progress that you can see and feel like that is the best motivation in the world to keep going!!! My big goal was to be down a size before our trip to Florida... like I said, not where I want to be overall but it's progress... and I made it there more than a full month before we leave. I want to feel good during our trip and I know this Whole30 has given me the most amount of progress in a short amount to do just that.
At this point, it doesn't really matter what the scale says... I'm seeing and feeling results, and that's more important than any number on the scale! Do I want to see the scale go down once I hit day 31? Of course I do. But I know that leading up to this Whole30 I'd lost almost 15 lbs. and hadn't been able to tell an ounce of a difference... so I feel like this is about so much more than a number on the scale... this is about being healthy, learning a new lifestyle and wanting to continue on with it (with a few less restrictions), and seeing quality improvements in my body! As long as those improvements are happening, the scale just doesn't matter... much ;)
