Check In - Week 9 BFL

Today marks the beginning of week 9 in the body for life challenge. I've lost 30 lbs so far and I'm feeling really good! MS has lost 23 lbs and he is really starting to show a lot of muscle definition! I definitely feel like my workouts have more purpose, I don't feel burned out from the gym and I'm not dying for any bad foods. In fact my cheat days, while they still include chocolate, haven't been really bad over the past few weeks. It's crazy how you can eat poorly for a long time without issues and then once you start treating your body right, foods that are unhealthy start making you feel like complete garbage. On the Sunday after a cheat day I feel bloated and lethargic which never happens during the week. 

Dr Yoo was very happy with my progress when I saw him on Thursday and he gave me an enormous fill :( 2 effing cc's. I keep telling myself this really shouldn't affect anything because I'm eating the correct portions. I need to slow down when I eat and this fill will probably help. That's the one rule I still struggle with. 

Overall I feel really good! I'm still gunning for my goal of -45 lbs by August 11th. I need to lose about 3lbs a week for the next 5 weeks to do so. It's definitely not easy, but its possible, so I'm going to try as hard as I can! 


  1. Way to go!!! Congrats on your loss! Keep up the good work!

  2. I was a little worried about you when you said you got 2CC's. I'm a little jealous, because I'm definitely not feeling the restriction I'd like!
