Down 4 lbs and 2 inches in 1 week! Here's the secret!

Jan 27, 2021

Yesterday marked one week since I started my new meal plan. In one week I have lost 4 lbs, 4% of my body fat, 2 inches from my waist and 2 inches from my hips. I did not do it perfectly, I was not starving, and I barely exercised 15 min 4 days of the week. I kid you not, I am stoked. It’s easy, it's delicious and my whole family is eating the meals with me and they enjoy it! I don’t have to buy a bunch of weight watchers meals or eat like a rabbit. I get to eat full meals that leave me full and I have energy without the soda or caffeine. Tie this is in with the supplement I have been taking for 3 years, which I totally attribute to the reason I have yet to contract the virus in this pandemic even after being exposed directly by two different carriers. There are 6 things your body needs to fight off viruses and infections and my supplement provides 4 out of those 6. I’m feeling pretty good about that.

But anyway- I wanted to dive more into Nutrition today. I have tried SO many things… in a post not that long ago I was telling you about intermittent fasting and how it was kind of working but not really. I lost a pound and no inches. I cheated into the unhealthy foods and was snacking the same…. Even the water intake was hard to master. SO I found this new program and I was skeptical but it fascinated me… I took a quiz to learn what type of metabolism I have. After you determine your metabolic type, insert your allergies and health conditions- it provides meal plans that fit your metabolic type. It even connects to Smith’s/Kroger grocery store apps to put the ingredients directly into a cart. It was so easy.

Now I did invest some money into it but there are options. A monthly fee that is small or a great

deal on an annual fee. I spent about $125 for annual access to these meal plans. For some of you that may seem ridiculous, but those of you who have seen the plans out there and the fees- this is nothing! You get access to a Nutritionist if you want one, you can join a Facebook group if you want support and it prompts you as well as educates you. Another thing I love- the food is good! The portions are fair, and it's maintainable! Not only that…. 6 days in someone outside of my home noticed I looked slimmer. Real results, really fast. With no diet pills, no crazy exercise routines, no fasting, and no rabbit food meals.

I literally felt my metabolism change. I got hungry when It was time for me to eat, I felt full if I took care and didn’t scarf my food down. The water goals feel way more attainable with a minimum and maximum to reach. I can absolutely meet the minimum. Downside…. I have to pee all the time! Like it's a joke to my family now…. Every time I stand up- “Oh do you have to pee again?!?” Yup… I sure do! Something that fits kinda in the middle of pro-con is my digestion… It’s improved and gotten consistent. Which is healthy! But annoying! haha. As a mom, I hate having to UNABLE to know what’s happening for an extended period of time… My kids are quiet… are they calm and distracted or sneaky and destructive?!? Being behind a closed door for more than 1 minute is terrifying. To be that way multiple times a day… my nerves ya’ll.

I wanted to share this with you because for the first time in a long time, I am excited about my health goals. I feel hopeful that I will hit my goal weight or that I will get to a place that I won’t care as long as I am healthy. I have slipped and had a snack or two on some days. But this plan also tells you it's okay! As long as you don’t overindulge. Do you want pizza? Have a slice or two. Do you want a cookie? Go for it, just don’t have the whole sleeve, a pint of ice cream, and whipped cream. Right? I can handle that. I can commit to that. I can enjoy some unhealthy foods or favorite treats. Just keep it under control. I need that, I can do that, and it’s worth it. Why? Because, Mama, I AM WORTH IT! Guess what…. So are YOU! If you want to check it out and it sounds like it will work for you here’s a link! I am incredibly happy. Did I forget to mention that? My mood swings are in check. I am way less irritable, I have yelled at my kids less, I felt sexy with my husband and I’m not feeling disgusted when I look in a mirror. I feel like it’s okay to be a work in progress. There is work to do and I have more room to grow. But I feel good! I can’t wait to see where I am in 3 months. By my anniversary! Or even 2 months from yesterday for my birthday! You guys- it’s a good day! It’s a good week! It’s a great time to find my inner peace and joy and love and acceptance of myself. If I can do it, so can you! Together we can rise and be our best selves. After all… We are Phoenix Mamas!
