Week 3

I lost another 2.5 pounds!

I am kind of in shock.  I was sure that I would not see a loss this week and MAYBE even see a gain.  It was a bad week.  I wasn't making excuses, I was just giving myself permission to not be so hard on myself if I didn't have a great weight loss week.

But I lost.  I am feeling really good.  Clothes are fitting better and I'm starting to feel like myself again.  Of course, my body doesn't LOOK much better to me, but that's par for the course.  The scale doesn't lie.  :)  I'm holding myself back from shopping because I am in between sizes, so I know I'll get there sometime.  But man, I can't wait to get some new clothes!

I am 3 pounds away from a 10 pound loss since starting WW a few weeks ago.  That means I am almost back to my pre-pregnancy weight.  *happy dance*  Go, me!

Week 2

-2.5 pounds!  That brings the 2-week total to 4.5 pounds lost.  That's super exciting!

Week 2 was a little easier.  I'm still getting hungry, but I'm dealing with it better.  I keep busy (which isn't hard to do with a toddler and a 4 month old), and listen to my body.  If I'm hungry, I eat.  I just don't over do it.

As a reward, I treated myself to a bra fitting @ Nordstrom and 4 new bras.  :)  I really was tired of wearing bras that just didn't fit.  It's amazing what a good fitting bra will do for your self-esteem!

I'm looking forward to the next weigh-in, and for fitting into my smaller clothes again.

1st Weigh-in

Houston, we have weight loss!

-2 pounds.  No, wait ... -2 pounds!!!  Woot.  Considering how hard it was getting back on WW (and the fact that I went over my daily points a few days), this is a huge win for me.

I am totally stoked and ready to keep it up this week.  :)

Day 2

Don't worry (who am I talking to? I don't actually have readers.)...I don't plan on journaling about this journey EVERY day.  I just need to vent.  Already.

I'm hungry.  Yesterday I actually used 10 of my weekly points.  I RARELY dipped into my weekly points on the old plan.  Granted, the items that sent me over probably won't in the future.  I didn't have Splenda on hand, so the sugar in my coffee hurt.  I also had a piece of gooey butter cake and a glass of wine with dinner.  So, yeah.

Note to self - hit the grocery store & stock up on WW-friendly items.  And try not to be too hard on myself this first week.  I'm already eating better than I was a week ago, even with the slip-ups, so that's something.

But I'm hungry.

Starting Again

I signed back up for Weight Watchers this morning. 

I lost 25 of the pounds I gained back while pregnant, but have not been able to lose any more.  The good news is that for 2 months I haven't gained a single pound.  The bad news is that I still have about 35-ish pounds that I want to lose.

I'm a little nervous about the Points Plus program, but am excited to get myself back on track and get to a place where I like shopping again.

It's been a looooong time!

I haven't posted in almost a year. Here's why:

I found out I was pregnant with #2 last July and Julian Tadeusz was born at 37 weeks on March 14, 2011.

I stopped doing Weight Watchers as soon as I got my BFP, so I didn't really feel like continuing to blog about that journey...especially since I ended up gaining EVERY.SINGLE.POUND back that I had lost on Weight Watchers.

That's right. I gained 43 pounds this pregnancy. *sigh* No excuses...I ate like a horse. Maybe I took advantage of being able to eat things I didn't eat while on Weight Watchers. I KNEW I was pregnant with a boy this time - my appetite was insatiable! With my daughter, I craved fruit. With Julian, I craved Mexican food & chocolate brownies (with chocolate chips & chocolate frosting, of course). I have some SERIOUS work to do. I am currently 12 weeks PP and have 18 pounds to go to get back to where I was before I got my BFP. I still haven't joined Weight Watchers yet, but that will be happening next week.

I will be blogging again (I hope) to talk about my adventures in weight loss, part II. If I still have readers out there, stay tuned!

I'm hungry.

For the past 2 days, I've been super hungry. I'm not doing any extra activity, not eating less than I usually eat. I just don't get it. I'm not craving "bad" foods, it just seems like I can't fill myself up.

I'm hoping this passes soon.
