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

Portland  3 Month Weight Loss Journey {Week 5}

Hello there weight loss journey readers! I’m sure you are reading this and excitedly awaiting my annoyingly fabulous news that I lost weight during Thanksgiving…but I didn’t. For Farm to Fit to work, I really have to stick to the eating plan and that just didn’t happen to the full extent this week.

However, I have no doubt, that if I hadn’t eaten the Farm to Fit food that I had, I would have gained weight this week (eekkkk!! never good for a weight loss blog!)

Because I started my days eating their delicious breakfasts (including yogurt & granola and a broccoli scramble) as well as eating my lunch or dinner with their food, I kept things in check and was able to FULLY enjoy myself on turkey day.

As a pledge to lose weight this week, I just attended what was quite possibly the most hellish workout class of my life. After 50 minutes of puke-inducing workout variations, Will “the devil” Thatcher, finished us off with a sequence of 10 minutes of burpee variations. Yep, I’m hurting. But, I’ll be back tomorrow for more 😉

Struggles?

  • The biggest eating holiday of the year…
  • Having my parents from Idaho in town wanting to explore the food scene in PDX
  • Messed up gym schedule and guilt around leaving my family to work out

Triumphs

  • No weight gained on biggest eating holiday
  • I feel thinner and people are beginning to comment on it. Crazy what only 3 pounds can do!

Dish it! How was your Thanksgiving and what are you doing this week to get back on track if you fell a little “off the wagon”??
