ok, so i'm back. haven't posted here in a while... It's been going up and down since last post but I finally shed what I put on for the holiday (+ last week) and even lost 2 additional pounds! I'm very happy.
SW: 94.7 kg / 208.7 lbs
CW: 85.2 kg / 187.8 lbs
GW: 85 kg / 187.4 lbs (my 10% goal) So very Very close!!!
I also won my third gold star!
Down 1 lbs this week, weighing in at 195.5! Only four more pounds until I hit the 50 lbs mark! But the best news for me this week is that I fit into size 18 jeans. All of my maternity jeans and after baby jeans are officially packed away! YAY!

I finally got into a size 28 pants that I bought as goal pants, seat belts fit me better, and I am walking so so much better than ever before! This is pretty exciting.
This week so far (I weigh in on Sundays) has been kinda slow. I have an injury keeping me from the gym. Hopefully tomorrow will be better and I will be able to get there.
I hope that everyone else is doing well also!
p.s. Has anyone tried the Dark Chocolate Raspberry mini bars from WW? They have saved me from a Hershey's disaster plenty of times. Do you know if any of the other mini bars or products are any good?
My 4th week on ww and I lost 1 lb for a total of 11 lbs gone :) It's going to be a long road, but very worth it!
I'm down 4 lbs this week...! So in three weeks I'm down a total of 10 lbs. I lost 6 lbs my first week and then NONE my second week! Maybe this is just how my body does it! I'm 8 lbs away from my first mini goal weight of 199 :) I can't wait to see that scale be under the 200's!
I went shopping yesterday and bought some clothes as all of my maternity clothes were too big but my pre-pregnancy pants don't fit yet. So I'm in a size 20, not too happy about that since before I got pregnant I was an 18 and I'm at a lower weight than when I got pregnant :(
Anyways, I'm adding in an exercise DVD to my plan this week. It's a 15 minute post partum DVD so I'm hoping to find 15 minutes every morning to do this, I know 15 minutes isn't a lot but it's a start. I want to do this for two weeks and then continue to add more. I'm somewhat frustrated at this point because it's quite cold here in Michigan so I can't take baby out for walks, and the nearest mall is 30 minutes. So I'm going to try and mall walk 2 times per week just to get some walking in!
Hello All-- First my weigh in info
SW: 225 (Summer of 2007ish)
Last Week: 158.5
This Week: 155. 5
GW: 140 or a Size 8, whichever comes first.
Which brings me up to 69.5lbs total lost (!!) Also today I went and packed up on groceries for a few weeks (our fridge is dismal looking...) and had a little bit of a rough time carrying everything home (live in NYC and walk/carry everything..well everywhere..) and for some reference stepped on the scale holding all the bags and lo and behold -- 230lbs! I was carrying all that extra weight I just used to have on my body and it was great being able to put it down. :)
Also today at the green grocer I was reminded that it was fall by the skyrocketing prices of fruit and the appearance of squashes of all shapes and sizes, and little eggplants too! I know some people use spaghetti squash instead of pasta.... but was wondering if anyone else had awesome WW recipes for these gourds. (Not only are they WW friendly but at .45 cents a pound they're great on the pocketbook too)
Thanks in advance!
For the last 3 months or so I've been trying to get to a total weight loss of 30 pounds and I was stuck at a plateau and just couldn't lose. I mean, I wasn't gaining, so that was good, but I had been doing everything I was supposed to do. Tracking my points, exercising, eating healthy/filling food, mixing it up to keep my body guessing, etc etc, but no matter what I did, I just wasn't losing. Then about 2 weeks ago the weight started coming off again, and my goal of just losing became my goal of losing 30 again. Then last week I got weighed-in at 29.8 pound loss. .2 away from the 30!! So frustrating!
This week I lost 1.6 pounds, putting me at a total loss of 31.4 pounds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I FINALLY MADE IT TO WEIGHT LOSS OVER 30 POUNDS!!!! YAY!
I'm so happy, I just had to share!
I've been SO good lately. This week has been extremely stressful, but I kept myself under control.
They canceled our at-work meeting today, which had me really bummed. I called and found out the center here in town has weigh-in hours, though, so I went down there.
-4.6 pounds! ...which brings me to a total of -54.2!!!!! I finally lost my 50 pounds! ANNNND...I'm now under 200 pounds! I weigh 195.6!!!!! Sorry for all the exclamation points, but oh my gosh am I excited! :D
I started my journey at 249.8 pounds and now I'm 195.6! It feels so awesome!
I went shopping for clothes yesterday and I fit into size 14s now! I remember days in high school when I wore 26/28. I even squeezed myself into a size 12 swimsuit the other day (way too tight, but I was still able to get into it)!
I leave for vacation tomorrow (California) and I'll be there until the 21st. I hope I can keep this going while I'm there. I was stuck at a plateau for 1-2 months and I was going haywire. I managed to crank out/off 8.6 pounds in the last 2 weeks, though. I WILL keep going!
30-50 pounds to go still, but I'm on my way. :D
