Update on IIFYM

It's been going ok...trying to figure out HOW to hit my fat, protein and carbs with out going over is tricky. It's a learning process. I lost another pound though! Whoo hoo! So 61 total, and I am confident next week I'll be down ever more. 
I've been doing body pump regularly. Ouch! I love it of course but I want up start lifting heavy in the weight room...but I'm too scared to go in there :/ 
Maybe eventually :) 
Tonight I am going w my sister in laws and mom in law on a girls get a way night! Eeek! 
Nervous for my hubby lol. 
I tried on some skinny jeans just for fun. They were a size 16, and fit :/ but I tried on some plaid pants and they were a 14 & fit! And that's a big deal cause baby's got back ykwim? ;-) 
Here are some recent photos :) if you follow me on IG you've probably seen these all haha. 
Will be back soon!

Yesterday was William Noah's one year birthday!!!!! I CAN'T believe it.  We were/are sick so we didn't do much. :( I have been so sick with an awful cold for 8 days.  It's really been kicking my booty. Poor baby Will had a 103.7 fever the other night :(
I have been doing a lot of research on what I should do to get these last 40 pounds off.  Low carb isn't very appealing these days and I have very low energy doing it, and I really don't want to do Whole 30 again LOL.

I have been following Skinny Meg since she had her last baby (8 months ago) and she does IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros).  She has had amazing success!!! Seriously, go check out her post here about how this time around (she lost 100 lbs before her last baby!) weights and IIFYM has changed her body!  As soon as this cold is gone (hopefully by tomorrow morning at 5am) I am going back to the gym for weights, and I started IIFYM today.

I know a while ago I mentioned it before and how it was the opposite of Paleo... it's modo is :flexible dieting. You can eat whatever you want as long as it fits your macros. I kinda turned my nose up to it....  (LOL) A lot of people get so tired of clean eating that they eat crud all day and just count it.  But you can do that on WW too.  It's actually a little similar to WW expect you hit a target for your carbs, proteins and fats. I have learned one eat healthy food to be healthy. You can lose weight eating junk but it wouldn't be healthy. 

Sometimes you need a big KICK IN THE PANTS to get going again.  I went and bought a few new gym clothes to motivate me and I planned out this whole IIFYM thing.  It seems very time consuming. You have to weigh and measure all your foods and track everything.  I can't say I recommend it yet because today is day one.  But I get to eat 1900 cals a day! I will be posting more often again and I will keep you posted. :)

I got ready today to go walking but then my head felt like it was going to explode :( I am 184.3 today.  I have 40 pounds left I want to lose.  I will measure myself right now and give this IIFYM thing a go.  I am so so so excited to get back to Body Pump. 

Here are my Macro goals for a day.

If you want to learn more about IIFYM go to this website.
Say goodbye to the post baby belly! Yes I am still post baby ok! :)

And I would just like to say... I know I've done several different things to lose weight.  I get bored easily and as life changes so do our wants, needs, goals, ect.  It's my journey and I can try differnt things if I want to ;) Of course with caution and with a goal to be healthy and fit!
