I am down 143 pounds in total now since having my daughter February 2016. Less than half my starting weight. Only from training at home with my daughter by my side.
My transformation has not been quick. I have never seen a huge change in 8 or even 12 weeks.
But my results, though slow, are lasting and sustainable and they only get better in time.
In the last 8 weeks of my nearly 5 year journey I went on a mini cut with the goal of losing 8-10 pounds in 8 weeks.
Here are my results.
Down 9 pounds
Down 2 inches off my waist
Hit a Hip Thrust personal best of 375 for 4 reps.
I didn’t miss a day of steps, training, or nailing my nutritional targets.
I had pizza on the weekends via calorie cycling.
I had chocolate everyday through flexible dieting, I just made sure I was still compliant to my calorie and macro targets.
My calories never dropped below an average of 2,090 a day and 250g of carbs. This is because I was easily maintaining my weight before the mini cut on an average of 2,700 calories. There was no need to slash my calories too low.
Now my focus shifts back to the goal of maintaining my weight loss. This is just as much as a goal as losing the weight was.
I want you to know what is possible with time and consistency. It is not only possible to get results, but keep them as well.
Learning how to lose weight and keep it off is a skill that everyone can learn. It is not easy, but like with any skill you will get better at it with practice.
