If you’ve been visiting me here for a while, you know that I’ve had a major struggle to lose weight in the past 5-ish years since I’ve had PCOS.  But today I am SO happy to report that I am now halfway to my weight loss goal!


Ok, now I’m going to share something that I have never shared before.  It terrifies me to do so, but I’ve never been shy in this space, so here goes.  I’ve lost 33 pounds since having C and I have 33 left to go.  OMG, it’s terrifying to reveal that.

After less than two weeks of following the Wheat Belly diet (wheat-free lifestyle), I am now wearing jeans that I have not been able to wear in more than two years.  Not only does my baby belly pooch FINALLY seem smaller (that extra pooch above my c-section scar that I’m convinced will forever plague me), but I’m wearing THESE jeans.

I have not been able to wear THESE jeans since months before I got pregnant with C. About six months before conceiving him, I’d gained weight due to work stress, and I was not able to button these jeans.  WOOOO!  I am *so* excited.

Not only can I rock these jeans now, but I am feeling better.  I have more energy.  I’m not hungry as often as I was while I had wheat in my diet.  I have fewer food cravings.  It’s wonderful.


This week’s goal: continue to fight this nasty cold and start getting out and walking/jogging in the mornings with C again.
