Kathy Gets Fit: Week 10 – People Are Starting To Notice!

Apparently, 15 pounds is when neighbors and coworkers begin to notice someweight loss. A few people have asked me recently if I’ve lost weight and I am more than happy to reply “YES” :)

I’m down one pound again this week (4th week in a row), for a total of 15. This is a much slower pace than I’d thought it would be, but I am definitely liking the results. We were at a water park this week, and I have to admit, it’s slightly less stressful to walk around in a swimsuit now. I was able to focus more on having fun and enjoying the water slides with the kids. It was also an unexpected workout lugging heavy rafts up multiple flights of stairs!


Besides the water park, I got 3 hours of heavy yard work in, three one-on-one sessions with Herve, and Shannan’s Power Yoga class again. I am becoming a yoga fan! It’s perfect timing because as part of my new diet, I’m supposed to focus on cardio during the high-carb days of  Phase 1 (Mon/Tues), strength training during the high-protein days of Phase 2 (Wed/Thurs) and a relaxing activity like yoga during the high healthy fat days of Phase 3 (Fri/Sat/Sun). One of the many benefits of working with a personal trainer is that when I mentioned this to Herve, he was able to start aligning my one-on-one sessions to match the plan.

It feels like this new diet plan dominated my entire week. Hours were spent on food shopping, planning meals, food prep and cooking. Hopefully, it will be easier going forward. With all that effort going into it, I have stuck with it, and have had absolutely no splurges since I started. I am determined.

Current stats: 15 down, 25 to go
