Weekly Weigh In - Week 8

This post is 2 days late..... better late than never? I lost 1.5 more pounds this week! Yay! Every little but counts and adds up! I hit my 10% target. I know, I had already said that I hit it, and I did. But, I had hot my 10% target from my fully pregnant weight. I have now lost 10% of my body weight since starting weight watchers just 8 weeks ago. I have lost 16.5 pounds total! Yay! So if you can do math, you may be able to figure out what my starting weight was when I started weight watchers. I didn't really want to share the numbers, but now I have made it a little obvious. I was 200 pounds when I delivered baby M. That is 70 pounds more than my pre-baby weight of 130. After baby M was born I lost 35 pounds from delivery and breast feeding. I stayed at that weight until baby was 5 months. That put me at 165 with no changes. Since I  started weight watchers I have lost 16.5 pounds, so just 18 or so pounds until I am back to my pre-baby weight. That isn't much considering that I had gained 70! I have lost 52 pounds! I am so proud of myself. It makes that little 18 pounds left to go seem like nothing. My jeans don't fit, and it is a good thing! Like I told you last week, I now fit into my "transition pants" that I keep around for when I am this size. But, they are out of style now. It's been a while since I was this size. I need to get myself a new pair (new to me at least, I like consignment shops). But, I went to get a pair today, and the store was closed! BOO!!!!! So, it will be my goal this week to get myself a nice pair of transition pants so that I can feel good about how I look at this size, and show it off! My baggy "fat jeans" don't show off all of my hard work! Hopefully in just a few short months I will be able to show off my "after" picture. Maybe next week I will post a transition pic to show how all the hard work has paid off so far. If I do end up getting my new jeans, I will do it. :)

Weight loss is so difficult! Congrats on the 10% weight loss. It seems that so many bloggers can use some support when it comes to weight loss. What biggest tip would you offer when it comes to losing weight?
