It's OVER!!!

My Biggest Loser contest that is. ;-) We had our final weigh in this morning, and a BIG congrats to Katie O and Karilynn!! You guys did an amazing job!! Super proud of you both!!

I weighed in this morning at 131 lbs!!! I started the competition at 165 lbs... so that means I have lost 34 lbs in 6 months!!! WOW!!! Even though I missed my BL goal by 6 lbs (I was shooting for 125 lbs) I must say I am still really really happy with what I've accomplished thus far.

I am only 1 lb away from my WW goal of 130 (I aimed my WW goal a little higher... I wanted to give myself a little wiggle room there.. lol). We are going to Utah next week, so I will miss my meeting next week... but at the one the week after.... I plan on weighing UNDER 130!! I think I can lose at least one pound in 2 weeks. LOL I just need to make sure I don't blow my points while we are in Utah. So.... if I weigh in at/below 130 in 2 weeks... I will have hit my WW Goal... then, all I have to do is weigh within 2 lbs above or below that weight for 6 weeks and I will have hit Lifetime... which means... FREE MEETINGS!!! WooHoo!! So, that means... by August I should make Lifetime... and not have to pay anymore. YAY!!

I wanted to also say a HUGE TAHNK YOU to Melissa and Tammy for putting this whole thing together. I could have joined WW on my own.. with no other motivation... but I have no doubt in my mind that having this BL Group really helped in my progress thus far. I don't think I could have done it with out all the great support from all the other girls. Just knowing that there were/are other people going thru it with me... it really made a difference. I know we had a few gals who sorrta pooped out after a couple months...and I wanna say this to them: I really really urge you to get back on the wagon! You have no idea how much HAPPIER you will be if you can do it (and I know you all can).

I don't know how many of the other gals are going to keep their BL Blogs going after today... but I plan to. If only to update my progress once a week. It has helped me, I think, to be accountable for what I'm doing, and not doing. I also really hope that we can do anotehr BL Group next January. Even if it's only to maintain.. or just lose the "Holiday Weight"... I would love to do this again next year. I just hope I don't have as much to lose next year.... LOL

A small??? no way......

This month has totally flown by!!! Seriously.... I can't believe it's almost June!! WTHeck happened to spring?! LOL

I must admit.. I haven't done too hot this month. There are too many freakin birthdays in our family in April and May. I did go to WW last night, and I am down another 2.8 lbs... putting me at 132.6 lbs. BUT I was hoping to be outta the 130's by now. I really wanted to be in the 120's when I went to Utah in June to buy my new clothes.

But.. seeing as how I don't think that'll happen.. I broke down an bought a couple things the other day at Old Navy. And I was SHOCKED to discover I am now... a SMALL!! WTH?! When did that happen?? I have never been a small. Always a Med.. always... but not now. :) I stood at the clearance rack (ya.. clearence.. I'm cheap.. lol.. gotta save money where you can). So, as I stood there... looking at the meds, and the smalls... I was conflicted; Grab a medium, my old trusty friend... always was a med.. why would it change now... OR... go for a small. A brave new world in a size small...... dare I????? I dared.. hee hee

I grabbed a small in two tops and a skirt, a pair of capris, and a maxi dress. And wouldn't you know it... THEY ALL FIT!! And not fit like.."Oh, I can just squeeze my fat ass into the pants" fit.. but an honest to goodness "FIT like they should fit" fit!! I didn't try on any numbered sizes.. although in hind sight I really should have. But I had the girls with me, and Ash was being whiny and I didn't really have time, or energy.

I still can't believe it. I'm starting to wonder if ON has started making their clothes bigger, and an old Med is the new Small... (on a side note~ if this IS true.. don't tell me... lol I'd rather live in the idiotic bliss that I am really now a true small... haha).

But really.... I still feel "fat". I mean.. I have lost 33lbs... but I'm now back in my HS mind set, that I'm not too fat... but I could still stand to lose a few lbs. Truly I want/need to lose about another 10-12 lbs. That would put me at 120 lbs.... I would LOVE to be at 120 lbs. Even below that would be great.. like 115.. or even... dare I say... 110!!!! I know that I will have to work my ass off to get there. I can't just skate through it like I have been (just doing the WW thing... no working out)... I'll actually have to get my lazy self up off the couch and start exercising. LOL But I know it'll be worth it. I just need to remind myself that I CANNOT settle with this weight. Yes.. I am less than I was in HS (if only by 2 lbs.. less is less kids) BUT... I need to remember that in HS I wanted to lose a few lbs too... so I shouldn't change that now. Everyone is telling me to stop...that I'm "skinny enough"... but I know that's not true. They are just being nice.. or jealous... not sure which yet.. lol.

SO... my NEW goal is to get to 120 by the time my reunion rolls around in August.... I really think I can do it.. I just need to be MOTIVATED!! Not only that.. but I need to workout! I don't just wanna be skinny.. I wanna a rock hard bod.

So wish me luck kids... and, I just wanted to thank all those who comment on my blog. I am so bad about that.... I really appreciate those who take the time to comment to me. :-)

Doing well!

I meant to update last Thursday, after WW... but have been uber busy.

I am pleased to announce... I lost 2.2 lbs last week!! WooHoo!! I was really surprised actaully. I didn't think I did that well, so I was stoked! I am only 5 lbs from my WW goal. (Probably less now.. :)

I know I have said it before, but I have to say it again... WEIGHT WATCHERS IS AWESOME!!! It's the BEST program ever!!!!! The weight just keeps coming off, and I'm excited to see how low I go. As of yesterday I was 1 lbs LESS than I weighed in high school. :D I have always been curious as to what my "real size" was. Ya know... like some people just *know* they will never be a size 0, or a size 6. I always figured the smallest I could be was a 6.. ya know... an average "skinny" size. But now that I've lost over 30 lbs, and am still losing.... I'm curious what size I will end up at.

Most people can tell by looking at their families. Well.. my mom never weighed more than a 100 lbs, until she got preggo. Even then... she lost it all after she had me, and my sister (respectivly). I think now she weighs 120, or so... and she's on WW to "loose weight".. LOL She's a little nuts. haha. My dad was heavy as a child, but lost all his extra weight when he hit puberty. (The same thing happened to me and my sister.) He works out daily, and watches what he eats, but for the most part.. his "chubby" days are behind him.

So... in looking at my family: Super skinny mom, and kinda average dad... I dunno.... It would be great if I could get to like a 2 or 4. But we'll see.

Right now, I know I have more to lose. I still have fat rolls when I sit down. I can grab more 'chub' than I should be able to around my middle. And my legs and arms need to be more toned, a lot more toned. haha

I have no clue what size I am now. I haven't tried on pants in months! Like... since October? I do know that my 10's stopped fitting me ages ago, and my 8's are also huge.... they fall off when I'm just standing there. The only pants I have that fit me right now.... besides the yoga pants (which are also getting baggy) are my Silver jeans and they are a 32 (Euro sizing) and big. I need a belt or they fall off. I'm gonna *guess* I'm about a 6 right now... *maybe* a 4.. a large 4.. haha

We are going to Utah next month for a wedding and so I can go shopping. I will be at my goal weight by then (I hope anyway.. only 9 more lbs to go) so I can FINALLY buy new clothes. I can't wait!! It'll be so nice to have clothes that fit me again, not to mention finding out what size I am. hee hee

Weigh In Day!!

We had our big weigh-in today.... I only lost 5 lbs this month. I'm kinda bummed with myself, as I KNOW I could have done better had I not slacked off at the bridal shower, my sisters birthday and Ashy's birthday. Oh well... at least I'm back on track.

I don't really have anything inspiring to say... LOL... it's kind of a *blah* week.... ;-)

WW meeting last night

Had my WW meeting last night. I was pleasently surprised to see that I had gone down to 137. Only 7 lbs from my WW goal, and only 12 lbs from my BL goal. I really need to start walking again. It's kinda rainy this morning, but I'm thinking of getting the dog and going out anyway. Ricky can watch the girls for a little bit while I go on a walk. I would hate to drag them out in the chilly morning weather.

Some other "yay me" news.... I got another 5lbs star sticker at my WW meeting last night. It's always nice to get those.... makes me feel special. haha I'm thinking I can get to 130 by mid June... and then hopefully reach Lifetime status by August....which means... NO MORE PAYING FOR WW!! WooHoo!! That'll be nice. It's only $40 a month, but hey... $40 is $40! Especially in this economy. ;-)

Oh ya.... I found out when my 10 year HS reunion is; August 8th. So..... I have until then to get to my ULITIMATE goal of 125lbs. (I'd love to hit 120... but we'll see what happens.) Wish me luck kids!!

Stuck again....

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. DH's laptop has been in the shop for over two weeks, and my phone won't let me post new entries or comments to Blogger. Weird!

Anyhow... I'm borrowing my MIL's 'puter right now to post a little update. :-)

I *was* doing really great... I had lost 3 lbs in one week! I was sooo stoked! Then..... I went to my sisters house for a few days and BLEW it!!!! I got home and had gained 2 lbs back!!! I was sooooooooooooo mad at myself. I haven't gained AT ALL this whole time... and then... bam! Just like that I gained 2 lbs in one weekend. :-(

I'm back to 138, but *should* be at 135 right now. This means I now have 5 weeks to lose 13 more lbs in order to reach my goal by June 5th. I'm not sure I can do it, but I'm gonna try.

I've hit a plateu again. It seems that as soon as I enter in a new bracket (140, 130, etc) I hit a wall. It happened when I hit 149 too. I was there for 3 weeks before the scale started moving again. I'm really hoping the scale will start moving again soon. I was pretty lax this weekend about tracking my points. We had my SIL's baby shower, and Ashy's birthday party this weekend, so.... I really didn't count points this weekend.

I'm back on track as of yesterday... and doing good. I have my WW meeting Thursday and hope to have lost at least another pound before then.

Anyhow..... I'll try and post another update this weekend.... but who knows if we'll have the computer back or not. *sigh*

Friday, April 17, 2009

Another Milestone Reached!! WooHoo!!

I hopped on the scale the other day and am pleased to report that I am OFFICIALLY in the 130's!! WooHoo!!! 138 to be exact! I am soooo happy!! Only 13 more pounds till I reach my goal and only 3 lbs away from not being a liar on my drivers license.... haha!!

PiCtUrEs!! 24 lbs LOST!!

So.... I'm just past the halfway point with my weight loss. Melissa wanted people to post some "before and "after/during" pics. Soooo..... here ya go!!

And I swear I normally wear cuter clothes, but this is the best outfit (short of taking a pic in a bikini.... not happening anytime soon peeps!! lol) I have to show off my loss. And I normally wear make-up, but it seems that everytime I remember to take a pic of my progress.... I don't have any makeup on.. ha ha.

These are "mid-way" pics since I'm just past my halfway point. ;-) Just 16 lbs to go!! Wish me luck kids!!

April Weigh In!!

I am really proud of myself this month. Even with Ricky's grandpa's 80th birthday party, Cohen's birthday party, and the Girl Scout Cookies that my two sisters-in-law brought from Utah to sabotage me, hahaa, I still managed to lose 8 lbs in March. Go Me!!! woohoo!

I also added some workout DVD's to our Q on Netflix. I can't wait to get them. I really need to start getting in shape. The WW diet is only gonna get me so far. I've lost weight, but now I have flab.. gewww. I know I say it every month... "I need to workout." But this time I mean it! I've started walking with our dog in the mornings. It's just hard because Ricky has started to run in the AM to and we can't both be gone at the same time (there's some law about leaving young children home alone... pff! haha), so..... I need to wait for him to get back, and sometimes.... he doesn't get back in time for me to go. We're still working out all the kinks in that plan. ;-)

Once it gets nicer out, we're gonna start walking to the park with the kids in the evenings again. But it's not quite warm enough for that yet. Plus... the kids are lazy and they don't always wanna walk back home and they are too heavy to carry. LOL Once Ash gets better on her bike, Ricky can ride bikes down there with her and Cohen, while I walk with Mars in the stroller.

I'm also gonna start tanning again. Yes I know it's A-W-F-U-L for me and I'll get cancer and wrinkles, and yada yada yada..... I don't care!!! I loved tanning in high school. I looked fab, and I was going through old pics a few weeks ago and came across one of me from my freshman year in college. I was up at Central Michigan Univ visiting my BFF and a few other friends. I was all tan, skinny, blonde.... hot! hee hee Ricky saw the pic and was like..."Um.. you're hot. Can you look like that again?"

So, ya... I'm gonna get tan. Maybe I'll do it the safe way, from a bottle... but we'll see. ;-)

Utah trip has been Cancelled!

Due to a sick kid... again!! Ash's turn this time. She spiked a fever the other day and it has yet to subside (goes away with Motrin... then comes back full force). Grrrr!!! I'm sooooo over this stupid flu bug. At least she's the last of our kids to get it. Hopefully we're all done after this!

Oh well.... we're coming in June FOR SURE!!!!! Ricky's good friend is getting married and there is no way we are missing it. So..... if anyone wants to meet up the weekend of the 12th??? let me know!! ;-)

1/2 way pic, and coming to Utah!!

Sorry for the lack of posts. My sister had a baby last week so I've been down at her house visiting for the last several days. I'm home now.... but not for long... we leave Wed for Utah for a few days! All my fellow BL's that said they would meet me for lunch, I'll be in Orem, so... anywhere in Utah Co. is good for me. It's looking like Friday, noon-ish... is the only time I'm free. So.. anyone who wants to meet up... let me know! I'll try and check the blog before I go but if you do wanna meet me... you can call my cell (801) 735-8365. If I don't answer leave me a voicemail.


Oh yes... and I thought I should post a halfway pic for your enjoyment. This is from last Tuesday, at my hubby's G-pa's 80th birthday bash. My goal was to have lost 20 lbs by his party.... and I'm pleased to say I did it (actually... the morning of the party I was down 21lbs!!)!!! Only 20 more lbs to go!!! That's me on the right, in the black dress. My SIL Cyndee is on the left, she's joined WW with me.... and the shorty in the back?? That's my other SIL.... Karilyn!! LOL I love ya Kar!!

Monday, March 16, 2009

WooHoo!!! 1/2 way there!!!!!!

FINALLY... F-I-N-A-L-L-Y the scale has moved!!! It was hovering at 149 lbs forevahhhhhhh!!! I was seriously ready to chuck out the window. I was getting really frustrated and felt stuck.

But.... I hopped on the scale this morning nd I am pleased to announce it read..... {drum-roll please.......} 145 lbs!!!!!! That's halfway to my goal chicas, and only 10 lbs away from my high school weight (which in all honesty I'll be happy with once I get there).

So yes.. I am super stoked to go to WW this week and get my 10% thingy. I can't wait, and I am so happy that I broke thru my first platau. It was getting really annoying. ;-)

Another month down....

So, we had the big weigh-in this morning. I was really bummed cause I was only down 6lbs this last month. :( I know I should be happy I lost anything, but after losing 10 lbs the first month... I was really hoping I would keep up that pace, or at least be a little closer to it.

Oh well!!!!

It's a new month and I know what I have to do. EXERCISE!!!!!! I haven't done any type of exercise at all since we started and I know it's crucial to a new healthier lifestyle. I was just doing the WW thing, watching the pounds fall off... but all the while knowing it wouldn't last for long. Guess I hit my wall with that. *sigh* My hope now is... by starting to workout everyday I will get back on the losing streak. ;-) Here's hoping anyway.

It's just sooo hard to find the time! For those who don't know... the hubby and I are currently living at the ski/fishing lodge his G-pa ownes in Cali. We also work here. So while it's great that I can bascially "work from home" and have the kids with me all day (okay.. that one's kind of a double edge sword.. hahaha) it makes it hard to find the time to workout. If I open the office in the morning I have to be all set to go by 8am. Not too bad, except that's usually after a not so restful night with a nursing baby, so I'm not in the mood to get up any earlier than need-be to work out. Then, by the time I'm done working (keep in mind I have been doing the mom thing all the while I'm working in the office as well), I usually have to get dinner ready, then get the kids to bed, then I'm wiped and wannna sleep. If I don't open.... I usually close, so... I can't do anything at night as far as working out. Those are the days I really need to get up early and do something physical. But alas.... I just enjoy sleep far too much. Not to mention.... Ricky has a bad back and so usually he ends up sleeping out in the living room in his recliner. So I'm not sure he'd like it all too much if I turned on my Tae Bo DVD at 6am and began working out in front of him. (He too values what little sleep he gets.. haha)

I really need to just find 20 mins in the afternoon or mid-morning and just DO IT!! No more excuses. Once the weather gets a little better I plan on walking everyday, but it's still too cold out to do that. I'm a fair weather walker/runner. haha

It's {un}Offiicial!!!!

I am {un}officially in the 140's!!! Why the {un} you ask.. well... that's beacause the dumb cow at WW last night refused to write it in my book. Here's how it wet down:

I get on the scale, it's flashing between 149 and 150. She doesn't wait for it to stop, and when it *does* stop (on 149) she says.."Oh well.. I already started writing 150, so we'll go with that."

I was peeved!!!! {grrrrrrrr}

Whatever {pshhh}... I'm doing my points like I'm in the 140's, so.... while I'm happy to have gotten outta the 150's, I am not so happy to have lost another daily food point. Oh well.... such is life on the WW plan. ;-)

In other news, I am almost totally recovered from my illness. I feel sooo much better, and I can finally swallow without feeling like my throat is a cutting board at Benihana. I am also in the dire need of some new clothes. My jeans and pants are all too big. I've gone back to wearing my lounge pants and even those are looking awfully saggy and sad. My swimsuits are also getting too large. They are quite baggy in the bum area, and ladies let me tell ya.... we all know what a swimsuit that's too big in the back looks like..... ;-) NOT a fashion statement I wanna be makin'.

So, when we go down to LA for Cohen's birthday in another week I will be making a much needed stop at the mall. WooHoo for new clothes.

Sick... {blech}

So, it was bound to happen eventually. Everyone has been sick in my litle fam. They only one that's seem to escape it is Cohen. He had a little cold, but is doing great now. But Mars and Ash are still fighting it, and are on antibiotics. Ash is getting better.. but Mars is worse; goopy eyes, runny nose, cough. Poor baby girl.

I got a sore throat Wed, after skiing. I was hoping it would go away... but that night I had a horrid fever and could barely swallow. I hardley ate at all yesterday, and I felt like I had been hit by a Mack Truck. I bailed on WW because I was just *not* feeling up to it. Plus, Ricky was sick to, and I felt bad ditching the kids with him while I went.

Last night I was almost in tears because of my throat. I couldn't swallow and just wanted to die. I went to the Dr today and its not strep, but that means is viral. Basically he said.."Get some Chloraseptic and go home." Gee.. thanks. :-( (btw~ Chloraseptic is N-A-S-T-Y!!!!)

So I did.

I am feeling a little better. I've been sucking down tea like it's goin' outta style. It's the only thing that seems to help. The good news is.... I haven't eaten much of anything the last couple days. (the mere thought of swallowing anything more than soup terrifys me. lol) So, I think I've lost another pound just the last few days. LOL I am on the verge of being on the 140's and I couldn't be happier. :) I haven't been in that range since before I got preggo with Cohen.

I'm hoping I'll be on my to 100% by the weekend. *fingers crossed*

Ski Day!!

Ricky and I went skiing today. It was awesome!!! Totally gorgeous and about 40 degrees. Super nice. And... it kicked my butt! I have my WW meeting tomorrow and I'm hoping to be down at least another pound. I had 4 points left over last night, as well as tonight, so... I'm hoping that'll help a little bit.

I hopped on the scale this morning and it says I'm down another pound, but.... we'll see what the WW scale says tomorrow night.

No matter what... I am so going skiing again this weekend. Well.. as long as it isn't snowing. And, as long as my mother-in-law is feeling better. She watched the kids for us today, but was feeling really crappy tonight.. she has a cold or something. So, we can't really ask her to watch our kids if she's sick. That would be mean.. haha.

I'm gonna try and do my Tae Bo DVD tomorrow morning... we'll see though. I haven't been able to get up early at all this week. And once the kids get up, there is no way I can work out. *sigh*

Stupid Freakin' Valentines Day!!!

AGGHH!!! Frickin Frickity Frick! Stupid stupid holiday and it's stupid candy!! LOL Soooo... I told myself I would be good V-Day. DH and I went to a steak house for dinner, and I had actually saved up my points for the day so I would be okay. And I was... until we got home.

We ate at like 5:30pm, trying to beat the rush, and so when we got home I was still hungry. *sigh* I had some ice cream (not the best choice.. but I wanted chocolate, and it was light ice cream!) which put me over by 6 points. {crap} So I wanted to be good today.... but no. My MIL brought stuff over to make spaghetti and garlic bread. {damnit}

And I actually did okay. I had eaten my points for the day.. but then... then the Hershey kisses were calling me from the cupboard. {double crap} So I ate 2. Then I had another piece of garlic bread... {crapity crap}.


I really am mad at myself. I know I only went over by 6 yesterday, and like 6 today, and I get the 35 extra "Allowance Points" each week.... but still!!!! I was doing FAB!!!! I normally *never* use my Allowance Points. But, then I had to go and mess it all up. Stupid stupid....

On the up side... I *am* going skiing tomorrow, so that'll burn some calories. And I refuse to go over tomorrow. I'm actually gonna try and stay under. I figure... if I can get some "Activity Points" for going skiing, then *not* use them for food, and stay an additional 4 points under for the day..... that *might* make up for my horrid weekend. maybe.... maybe...

So that's the plan. Wish me luck.... and hey.. at least I can actually fit into my ski pants now. ;-) go me!

WW update!!

Had my WW meeting tonight, and I'm pleased to report... I lost another 2.4 lbs!! WooHoo!!! So... I'm down 12 lbs since we started this challenge. I am really excited. :-)

I'm hoping to lose another 8 lbs by the 24th of March. Why the 24th you ask?? Well.. that is the day of my hubby's Grandpa's HUGE 80th Birthday bash, and I am gonna look freakin' HOT at that party!! I am determined. I know I can do it... 8 lbs in 5 weeks... totally doable. ;-)

And my reward: ahh... a fab new dress!! And more than likely some uber fab new shoes. ;-) hee hee Hey.. you can't have a new dress without new shoes to go with, right?!

Still on the hunt for the perfect dress, and shoes.. ;-) I will share a pic when I find them!


Okay, so obviously my goal is to be thinner and healthier. But I have an additional goal as well. One of my fellow Losers mentioned that she wants to run a 1/2 marathon this year. It got me thinking... I should have a goal like that. So, I decided to run a 5K. But not just any 5K.... I am going to do the Race For the Cure 5K!! I have always been a big supporter of breast cancer awarness and figured this was a great way to help 2 fab causes at the same time. One being the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the other being the Get Whitney's Fat Butt in Shape foundation.. haha

I'm planning on doing the Nov run in San Diego. I'm gonna talk my SIL Cyndee into running with me. It'll be a fun little vay-kay down to San Diego for us, and our men and kids. ;-)

So, that's it.. my *other* goal.... Run the 5K Race for the Cure!! I think I'll do great, just need to start training... that may be the hard part.. haha.

The Ski Pants....

So, I have this pair of North Face ski pants I bought my freshman year of college. I put them on in Dec when Ricky and I took the kids to the Night of Lights in Mammoth. While I was happy I could still zip them up (hey.. it's been 9 years and 3 kids later.. I was impressed okay?!) I was not happy that I had a sweet fat roll hanging over the top and I could barely breathe when I got them on.

I really wish I had taken a picture of myself in them at the time, but I wasn't thinking.

Anyhow..... I put them on today because Ricky and I were gonna take our almost 3 year old skiing today. (yes.. I know it's sounds nuts.. but she wants to go and everyone in Ricky's family was on skis pretty much from birth... haha... Karilyn can vouche for me on that one can't ya Kar?!!) Sooooo... I put them on and.... not only could I zip them up, BUT I had room in the bum area, I could breathe and... get this... they were actually LOOSE!!!!! WOOHOO!! Stoked doesn't even begin to describe my feelings at the time. hee hee I know I'm thinner than I was in December, the scale today said I'm down 11 lbs. My clothes are fitting better, but the ski pants... now that was just freakin' cool! I could totally tell , and see, the difference and it felt GREAT!!!

I'll have to take a pic of me in them tomorrow. We didn't get to the slopes today... too much stuff that we ended up having to take care of around the house, but maybe Friday.... ;-) Anyhow... just had to share my exitement.

WW weigh in!!

I went to WW tonight and WooHoo!!! I hit my 5% goal! Super stoked. :-) I'm aiming to lose 10+lbs this month. Ricky's G-pa is turning 80 on Mach 24th and I wanna be all hot and skinny for his party next month. So if I can lose 1o this month, and then another 8 by the party next month.... I'll be uber excited!! That'll put me at 137lbs. That's almost to my High School weight. :) Go me!!

First month down!!!

Today marks the end of the first month with the BL Challenge. I did pretty good. For just doing WW, and actually being off it for the week we were in the hospital with Mars (she's home now and doing great!!).. I lost 10lbs!!! I'm pretty proud of myself.

My goal next month is to lose 15lbs. I think if I work out everyday I can do it. I didn't work out at all this month, and I still lost 10lbs.

I have WW again tonight I know their scale is off a bit from mine, and I don't go until 5pm, so I have to take into account that I'm wearing clothes and have been eating all day. It kinda sucks. LOL I wish we could do nakie weight at WW.. haha. In private of curse! Or at least have them deduct something fo our clothes. I'm sure mine weight at least a pound. hee hee

I meant to post the other day but I have been crazy busy!! I did go to WW Thursday, lost another 1.6 lbs. Not bad considering that I went to this FAB dinner party with Ricky Tuesday. (it was this AWESOME $300 a plate dinner that we were invited to by his grandpa, so we couldn't *not* go. Plus it was sooo fun!!) Anyhow.. I kinda blew my points that day but it was soooo worth it. :)

Then... I made a promise to myself to lose another 2lbs this week and workout everday. Well... Saturay morning Marley woke up with a horrid fever, and her lips were blue. We took her to the ER and have been in the hospital ever since. You can read all about it on my family blog...

Needless to say it's been hard to figure out my points eating hospital food. I think I'm on track... but I really can't be sure. And working out... well... kinda hard to do in a little hospital room in the ICU. But.. we're hopefully getting outta here tomorrow so I can get a few good workouts in before WW again on Thursday. Oh ya... I'm also going skiing Wed so that'll burn a whole BUNCH of calories. ;-)

I went to WW on Thursday... ropped my sister-in-law to go with me.. ;-) According to their scale I had lost 3lbs my first week.. but my scale said 5lbs. I'm going with my scale since the meetings are at 5pm... and we all know the AM nakie weight is the most accurate... hee hee ;-) of this morning I was down 6lbs!! It probably would have been more but I went to a party Fri night and then another mini shindig Sat.. so I kinda blew my points those days I fear. :( BUT.. I got a Tae Bo DVD from my sister-in-law so... me and Billy Blanks have a date today. ;-) He and water are gonna help get my butt in gear. :D

Weight Watchers...

Last night I went to my first WW meeting. It was great! And the WW scale said I'm 2lbs less than my scale at home. (But for sake of the contest... I'll stick with what my home scale says. ;)

So.... I had my first day with points. It's going really well. I get bonus points since I'm nursing too. WooHoo! It's 5pm, and I'm not even hungry and I still have 15 points left for dinner!! Yay, so excited. I'm gonna have pizza. delish!

I'm also almost done with my first liter of water for the day. (yes.. I realize the day is almost over.... I slaked on the liquid intake today.) I also went run/walking for about 30 mins today. Cohen went with me, so it was more walking than running, but.. I figured out that I am uberly outta shape, so... it wasn't all that bad.. LOL. Plus, by having Cohen with me... I figure when people saw me walking they assumed it was because I was letting my 4.5 year old catch up to me. haha

Anyhow..... it's going good... but tough. It's my first day on points so I'm still trying to gage my hunger vs points and whatnot. I have quite a few points leftover for dinner, so I think I can snack more during the day tomorrow. It's a trial an error system I think. ;-)

my new best friends...

Meet my two new bffs.
Water and I have had some good times. Sometimes he jazzes himself up with lemon and or lime... and other times... he goes au naturale. ;-) kinky... hee hee. It's been awhile since we've really hung out, but I'm happy to say we've gotten back together. Today he's on my desk... always there when I need him. :-) No matter how long I've neglected him.. he's always willing to give me another try. Love ya water!!
And my new bff!! Ahhh.. Sobe Green Tea... we go waaayyy back. My first choice for long car rides. He's the mistress to my Water. When I'm craving a little *something more*.. Mr Sobe delivers. Alas... he was too many points for my new WW endevour. It was looking like the end to a fab affair.... *sigh* But wait!!! Just when I thought it was over.. Mr Sobe pulled me back in with his lighter version.. Mr Sobe Lean Green Tea. AND.. the best part... Mr Lean is 0 points on WW!!!!
and so, the affair continues.... hee hee. Just don't tell Water.. he'd be crushed. ;-)

YiKeS!! Scary pics!! But soon to be no more. I was stalking Tammy's blog today and saw she had a cute little "before" collage. So, I decided to do one to. :-)
