Those scoundrels! You are so dedicated to not have eaten any. Kudos to you!

I am luckily not tempted by sweets very often.
Pizza,though is another story. I need them to keep it out of the house!

Yesterday was supposed to be picture day.
I did not get them. I will likely take pics for my records though.
Weight was up 191 was where I started I finished at 196
All measurements were the same except for 1
Surprisingly my waist measurement was down from 40" to 39"
So even though I gained I lost a tiny bit of belly fat.

Lessons learned this round...
I have got to watch my eating more carefully. I used to be a calorie counter(even last round) and it would help keep me on track but in this round I did not count calories. I have decided it is time consuming. There is so much more I can spend my time on. Meal planning is one of those things I was more relaxed on this round. The meal planning is a better area to spend time on. I really don't need to count calories but I do need to plan better and be more intuitive with my portion sizes and food choices.

That's about it for now.

I forgot to add....
I did start this challenge a mere 3 weeks post op.
I was very weak the first few workouts. Now I am doing push ups from my toes again and burpess! I stayed the course and I am much stronger than when I started this round!

Stronger, and with a smaller waist: Good stuff!

You learn so much from sticking with a Transformation and finishing. I am convinced you will reach your goals with your dedication. Well done.

A very busy 12 weeks, indeed! You'll be back on the nutrition; there's only so much you can focus on at one time and you got your business going. Good job!

I will be posting back in the workout journals section until the new transformation contest starts.
I did workout this morning. A TT bootcamp workout from an e-book I purchased before I was a CTT.
