Trackers & Progress Pic
I started my weight loss journey as a new year’s resolution for 2020. My goal is to lose 25lbs in 250 days (averages out to 0.7lbs per week). Today I hit my halfway point, and I’m so excited! I’m even slightly ahead of schedule! I started with strict CICO, but it wasn’t really showing me the progress I wanted and I felt like it was too restrictive and not sustainable long term. Mid February I switched over to IF (18:6 or 20:4) and absolutely love it! I’m still seeing great progress even with the coronavirus shutting down all the gyms. For April I decided to give alternate day fasting a try, but I’m seeing the same progress as I was doing shorter daily fasts, so in May I will switch back to 20:4.
The fun part of this post – my weight loss tracker/motivator! I use a little vase with pretty blue pebbles to keep me motivated. Each pebble represents 0.5lbs, and when my trendline goes down I take one out. The vase will be empty when I hit my goal weight! It’s a simple but fun way to visualize your weight loss, and I get so happy every time I get to take one out 🙂
