So today is officially 4 weeks since I started IIFYM (read my intro post here and update #1 here).
My relationship with food has changed so much in a month it is crazy. I’ve been consistently tracking, and consistently seeing progress. I weighed myself for the first time in a LONG time, and I’m about 5 lbs lighter than I was last time. I’m also lifting more weight and hitting PRs more consistently, which makes me happy. I just want to be strong! It’s been surprisingly hard to eat so many carbs (which isn’t even a lot- I just was just eating SUPER low carb before- so no wonder I wasn’t making #gainz). Carbs and fats are not to be feared!
People commonly think IIFYM is full of poptarts and butterflies, but really I’ve continued to eat a lot of nutrient-dense foods. Lots of eggs, veggies, chicken- but sometimes will have some cereal or whatever. It’s been really freeing to have no food “rules”. Nothing is off limits, but tracking gives me accountability, which I really needed. So here’s to another month!

you look great! of course you always do though. I need to do better at keeping track of all my food. ugh. so hard.
Gotta love IIFYM!! Great work!! I’m finally starting to get better at tracking. Can’t wait to see my results after 1 month
