Hi, I'm Petra and this is my weight loss/fitness blog.
I used to be on Weight Watchers from January 2011 to October 2012, dropping approximately 45 lbs. I've made the transition from unhealthy and unhappy to athlete and this is my journey to becoming a healthier, happier me. I frequently post about my exercise (mostly running, yoga and lifting), the foods I eat, recipes I liked and my daily struggles. You'll also find the occasional tree hugger post, (travel) photography or anything else I find worth remembering and collecting.
I follow most blogs back that follow me. However, I do stay away from blogs that promote EDs, unhealthy methods of weight loss or negative body image.
Feel free to say hi any time!
I have no idea what the fuck happened. But apparently I’ve lost 3 lbs since last week. I had a largish loss of 1.2 lbs last week and with it being Thanksgiving and all (I did not say no to any cake!), I was expecting a gain or even just maintenance. I did not anticipate a loss and especially not such a great one. I have no idea what’s been going on with my weight, but honestly, I’m happy that the number finally seems to be catching up with what I’ve been seeing with my body. I’ve continued doing what worked well last week: I cooked, I exercised (running and strength training – it really does make a difference!), I indulged. For the last two weeks, I ended up eating back pretty much all my activity points, making up for the fuel I had lost during working out. It seems to be working for me.
I also didn’t have a lot of business dinners to go to – something that always throws me off a little. I have one for tomorrow and then a tea party on Saturday. There’s one more on 12/13 and then I fly home for the holidays. I’ll talk about December goals a little more in a couple of days, but the last few weeks have given me great confidence that I can do this and get through holiday season all right. I’m now 5 lbs away from a healthy BMI and about 15 lbs from my UGW. I still can’t believe it.
I have officially lost a total of 50 lbs.
