Well this morning I got on the scale & got a big surprise… 131.2!!! As of date I am 31.8 lbs down & have 8.2 lbs to go to reach my new goal of 123! Originally my goal was 125… but I figured why not loose another 2 lbs & make it a 40lb loss! I currently weight the almost 5lbs less then I did when I got prego with the twins, and almost 3lbs less then my 2 week post twins weight which wasn’t bad at 134.
Want to know ‘my secret’ aka how I am doing it? You can read the post from this summer that explained what I was doing to loose weight & the free links to join me! http://everythingyourmamamade.com/2008/06/24/my-weightloss/
Anyways I started last summer & lost 26lbs by the holidays. I decided with all the stress of the holidays to take a break & focus on not gaining. Well I did good because 7 months later I was still maintaining my weight loss! Actually I didn’t gain any weight until Baylie got sick & I spent a week on the couch. So 4 weeks ago I decided it was time to get back to it… If I am going to make a wedding dress I might as well work to make the body that is going to wear it as good as I can too! (one regret from my first wedding was not trying to get in better shape before buying a dress)
4 weeks ago when I weighted in I was 138.5 after my week on the couch. My first week was HORRIBLE, I didn’t even loose a whole lb! I have never had such a horrible week & SO wanted to give up… it sucked watching everyone else eat all the yummy junk food that I wanted, but I knew I just couldn’t have yet. I decided to stick it out for another 1.5 weeks until ‘Aunt Flow’ came & go from there. Well that made me through it, well along with remembering that the no added sugar fudgecicles are only 1 WW point/70 calories! So 4 weeks later I am down 7.3 lbs which is nice. Not as fast as I have been able to get weight off in the past BUT this was the first time I was eating relatively okay before I started focusing on it.
I think the biggest thing I have gotten from this is that WW really is a life style change… even after I lost the weight the information I learned I was able to continue to apply & be aware of which allowed me to keep the weight off. I can’t wait to get back to maintenance mode!
The best part? The scale isn’t the only thing with results 🙂 Since I started last summer I have went from a size 12 to a loose size 6 (juniors 5’s fit best). Then there are the inches… I have lost 30″ of my whole body total, including 9.5″ off my waist alone!
