Well, I suppose I ought to fess up. I’ve been losing it, for real. Beginning December 27, I started back on my Weight Watchers journey. In 2010, I’d lost about 30 pounds by following the WW plan, then we found out I was pregnant with our third child, Maisy. Now that she’s 8 months old, I can’t blame anyone but me for this extra poundage I’ve been sporting. I knew that when my jeans started getting snug that I really needed to do something about this extra weight.
So, I decided that I’d get a jump start on my New Year’s Resolution to lose weight and buckle down. I did a little research, and discovered that I could essentially follow the Weight Watcher’s Points Plus program for free by using resources that I found online. I’m a sneaky one, ain’t I? I calculated my Points Plus allowance for each day (a whopping 46—14 extra Points Plus due to breastfeeding), and got to work.
The first few days were hard. Really hard. As in, this was my food log for the first day:
That was bad. It started out so well! But I’ll be damned if those sugar cookies would derail my entire new way of eating. I finished out the day by eating clean, and I felt good!
I teetered back and forth about whether or not I should blog about my weight loss. But I just do reviews! I give blogging tips! I just post deals and steals!
But really, who DOESN’T want to look better in their jeans? I figure if I can give you a little camaraderie and link you guys to some recipes that I like, it’d be worth it, right? It might be horrifying to tell thousands of people my weight, but it’s not like they can’t see me anyway — it’s not like I’m hiding a 130 pound figure underneath these layers. People have eyes, y’know?
So here we are at the week 2 weigh in date. I started on December 27 at 211.8 pounds. This morning, I weighed in at 198.4, bringing my two week total weight loss to 13.4 pounds! Booyah.
I’ll be updating each Tuesday with how my week went and what my progress is thus far. Are you embarking on a weight loss journey? Tell me about it with a comment!
