Can you lose 20 pounds in 12 weeks? This woman did!

Portland  3 Month Weight Loss Journey {Week 3}

Hey Farm to Fitters!

I’m just starting off week 3 of my 12 week weight loss journey and I have some very good news (at least for me), I lost another pound this week! So things officially feel “REAL”. The food is working. My workouts are paying off. I won’t be destined to a life feeling chunkier than I want to feel! My life will NEVER BE THE SAME!!

Ok, maybe I’m being dramatic, but if you’ve been someone who has struggled with weight, you probably understand how devastating it can be to feel like you put your nose to the grindstone, “followed all the rules” and you step on the scale only to see the same numbers that you saw the week before…and the week before. You catch my drift? It’s depressing and most failed diets not only left my clothes tighter than I would like, they also left me ashamed that for whatever reason, it just wasn’t working for me.

I guess you could say that Farm to Fit is my saviour 😉

Struggles?

Sugar, candy and pumpkin lattes. We are rolling into the holiday season and god forbid I go to New Seasons without having Christmas whoppers and mint chocolate bars dangled in front of my face. Yes, I ate some whoppers and yes I had a latte!! Ok, you caught me!

But I wouldn’t even call these struggles, they were a little sweet treats because I’ve been eating so well lately (not like Farm to Fit makes it hard). And to be honest I don’t do well with too strict of diets. I need a little fun thrown in and I feel like Farm to Fit allows for that.

Triumphs

In addition to losing one pound this week, I had the most successful launch of my business to date. In my head I thanked Farm to Fit for helping me rake in $20,000 in one week. Launch weeks are a stressful time for me where I get up early, stay up late and eat or drink whatever the heck is put in front of me. This week I ate my 1200 calorie a day meal plan, maintained great energy and focused on what mattered most THIS week (my business).

I also switched from the 1600 calorie to the 1200 calories plan on the Thursday delivery because I was always having leftovers from the 1600 calorie plan and I’d rather just have 7 days a week of food taken care of for me, with the options of adding in my own snacks or treats to supplement.

I made it to the gym Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday! I took more classes at Me Fitness and it is definitely holding me way more accountable than just trying to do exercise on my own. Heather Craig and Jen Smiri have been my main workout angels (i.e. group instructors) and it’s paying off! I’m getting stronger and my husband even mentioned this week that I look like I’ve lost a lot more than 2 pounds (what a sweetie, right?)

So give me the scoop! Are you also trying to shed a few pounds? Join in the discussion and tell me about it in the comments section below!
