I decided as a way to keep myself accountable on my journey to lose the baby weight, I would weigh in each week... in front of all 138 (as of right now) of you! That is motivation right? Well, on a weigh in day like today, I have no trouble making that commitment, I lost weight on the first week back on weight watchers! I am sure somewhere in the months ahead where I have a week where I gained or maintained, I might not be so happy that I promised to do this. But, when I wrote my "Time to Lose the Baby Weight" post 2 weeks ago, I said I would keep you all posted about my progress. Maybe down the road I will post my "before" picture, but not until I don't look like that anymore. :) Like I said in the previous post, I gained 70 pounds during my pregnancy, so I am not ready to show that picture just yet. But, here is one from the end of my pregnancy:
Here is a pic of when I lost the weight on WW in 2009, it will be another "goal" pic to keep me motivated. Isn't my puppy cute? Dang, the pic above and this pic don't even look like the same person! This is NOT a pic of me right now, this is my motivation picture that I will look at to keep me going.
So far, I am liking the new Weight Watchers Points Plus program. I did WW before in 2009. I gained 25 pounds while my husband was deployed to Iraq and after he came home (welcoming home a combat veteran can be a little stressful, food was a nice coping mechanism.... until I got fat. lol), and lost 30 using WW! The new program is even better ! My favorite part is that fruits are 0 points. Also, it isn't calculating the points based on calories, but on fat, carbs, fiber and protein! I like the new changes and think it is going to be a great plan for me this time around as well.
Next week, I will start the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. I hope that it helps to accelerate the weight loss and help me to get back some of that muscle tone that I have NONE of.
