10 Pounds Gone!

Today was my weekly weight watchers meeting and I only needed .4lb to hit my 10lb mark and get my little blue ribbon. I lost 1.2lb!!! I was very happy to reach that milestone. Coming up next I am hoping to reach my 5% goal of 14lb. Slowly but surely I'm shrinking! I will take my 1olb pictures this evening along with my measurements. Sometimes you can see changes in your body before you really notice them on the scale so I'm eager to see if there is any difference yet.

Back on Track




Yesterday was my week 6 weigh in and I was down .8lb. I have (almost) taken back off the pound I put on last week and have recommitted myself to doing this the right way. I would love to be down 20-25lb by Stella's birthday and if I'm really good I can do this. It's 2 months away and only 10-15lb so that is right around 1lb a week which is a good steady way to go. I wish this damn snow would disappear so I could take the kids out in the stroller but that will mostly have to wait until spring. I could take them to the mall but then I spend money :D

I need to get out the Dancing With the Stars DVD and give it a whirl. I'm also going to find some yoga DVDs that are geared towards heavier women. I did a few when I was pregnant with Stella and really enjoyed them. I felt like I'd gotten a workout, was more relaxed and energized and felt just a wee bit taller from all the stretching! Here's to a positive week!

No News is Good News??


You might have noticed that I haven't done an update for my weigh loss in a few weeks. There is a very good reason for that, and its that I'm mad about it. I'm upset because I have fallen off the wagon, not just for a day but for 2 weeks! Ugh...shame on me. I sort of regained control of myself today and am already feeling better but its not going smoothly. I have a craving, for a yummy cupcake....a cupcake from a local bakery with super sweet and super fatty buttercream icing! I cannot, no matter what I try to substitute, get this stupid cupcake out of my head. This in turn has led me to snarfing down all sorts of 'healthier' options, along with some not healthy one, which is crazy I know. I should have just gone and gotten the stupid cupcake, realized it wasn't as good as I'd dreamed about, and moved on....but I WILL NOT GIVE INTO A CUPCAKE! ARGGGGG

So that is that. I've started fresh today. I will see a loss on Saturday, if not then next Saturday. I can do this, I know I can, we all have our rough patches. So yeah, I'm probably going to get that cupcake this weekend so its over and done. Stupid cupcake.

The Great Freeze






This has been a loooooong cold week. We've had more snow so far this past week or so than the whole month of February last year. I'm not sure of the total accumulation but it was several feet. Steve came home early Tuesday and stayed home Wednesday, which made Luca very happy. He spent several hours outside with daddy, cleaning off the cars, shoveling the walk and throwing snowballs. He built a wonderful little snowman (with a little help from daddy) and couldn't wait to show him off to me and Stella.

I have been going a little crazy, not getting out of the house much, but with a break in the bad weather I might just get out of the house! I did manage to get out to go to the Blue Jackets game with a friend who had an extra ticket and we had a great time.

That's it for now, not much in a blogging mood. I will post again later with my weight loss update, Luca's potty training progress and whats on the calendar for us over the next few months.

Stay warm friends!

Week 3 Weigh In


Saturday was my week 3 weigh in for WW. Last week I lost 1.2 and this week I lost 3.4!!! That gives me a total of 9.8lb! I admit, I've had a few days where I snuck in a sweet or some chips, but that's okay because I worked it into my plan. I'm not interested in never having chocolate or junk ever again, I just want to do it sensibly and occasionally. Next week I should hit my 10lb mark which means new pictures! You usually can't tell much difference with only 10lb but once that reaches 20lb or 30lb its really neat to look at all though 10lb lost pictures and see yourself shrink! I am happy to say that I reached new numbers this week and am now out of the 270's!!! Woot woot!
