Two New Milestones!

I’m so excited to say that I’ve finally broken past my plateau! Not only that, but I’ve managed to lose 7 pounds in the past 3 weeks, which means I’ve now broken past the both the 30 pounds and 35 pounds lost marks. Woohoo! After months of plateau or VERY slow weight loss, I can’t explain how great that feels. ๐Ÿ™‚

Unfortunately I’m not really sure what to attribute the change to. I did do a race challenge a few weeks back (25.5 miles in one weekend) so it’s possible that shocked my system. I have also made some tweaks to my food intake, I just didn’t really expect them to make much difference.

As far as food goes, I’ve had two big changes – one intentional and one not. The intentional change was to add more fruits/veggies in daily. When I started striving for high-protein goals, a lot of those got cut. I recently returned to normal healthy eating, so back those came. 

The unintentional change was that I’m actually eating higher carb right now. The last couple weeks have been pretty busy so I haven’t had as much time to prep the fish and other dishes I’d previously been taking to work. Between that and the fruit/veggie additions my carb percentage has gone up while protein has gone down.

Who knows which of these has provided the boost for me, or if it’s due to something else entirely? All I know is that my weight is finally moving again and I’m super happy about that. ๐Ÿ™‚
