So I'm excited to get back to that place. I thought I could use my blog as a motivator for myself. I'm a little leery about sharing it with the world but I've been thinking that it could help because accountability counts. Am I going to want to post that I had a gain one week? Probably not...so to avoid that maybe I will try a little harder.
So part of this whole accountability thing will be to mark my progress and talk about what I am doing that works and what isn't working and measure my success...but we've got to have a jumping off point...so today, my first edition of Weigh-in Wednesday will come complete with stats...and (eek!) before pictures!
So at the height of pregnancy I weighed 172 lbs. My pre-pregnancy weight was 130 lbs. My feel good weight goal is 120 lbs. My ultimate goal is between 115-117. I'm only 5'1" so this is a healthy weight for me. I currently weigh 141.4 pounds, which means that I am already down 30.6 lbs! YAY! I still have 21.4 to 26.4 lbs to go.
Here are the lovely pictures!
|Front View: Not too bad for 4 weeks post delivery--note love handles.|
|Side View: I look like I'm about 4-5 months pregnant here--but that's to be expected, I suppose.|
|Back View: Looking a little frumpy dumpy from behind--I'll be trying to change that!|
By the way, if anyone would care to join me, let me know. It would be fun to have a diet/exercise buddy...We could all use a little push from a friend sometimes, so let me know!
