Time to go shopping!!!

October 7, 2008 at 10:50 am (Baby, Shopping, Weight Loss) (, , )

I have a ton of unused gift cards from last Christmas.  Of course I was pregnant then so I wasn’t going to go buy clothes for my non-pregnant self.  Then I refused to buy clothes until I reached my goal weight.  I had to buy a few things that fit me so that I could get dressed every day, but not a lot.  So now, seven and a half months after Alexis was born I am at my goal weight!! I weigh what I did when I got married and that’s 10 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight.  So now I can go spend all that money I have and get some cute things for my trip to Hawaii!!!

Now the trick is to not let myself slowly creep back up!!!!!

Yay! (sort of)

July 24, 2008 at 12:22 pm (Weight Loss) (, , )

Weekly weigh-in check.  I lost the 8 ounces that I had gained, but nothings else.  So yay! But not really b/c now I’m back where I was 3 weeks ago.

Marc and I went out to dinner a few nights ago for a date night.  I had a chicken caesar salad.  It was so high in sodium that I was drinking water all night long.  And of course that means I was retaining water the next day which was reflected on the scale.  I thought I was being good by having the salad.

This sucks I seem to be stuck at this weight, I need to kick start myself into gear again!!!!! I’m thinking of trying Alli but they’re kind of pricey.  Of course if they work then it’s totally worth it.  I may check it out.

Keeping myself accountable

July 17, 2008 at 2:39 pm (Shopping, Weight Loss) (, , )

I went to Jenny Craig this morning to weigh in.  I hadn’t gone in 2 weeks so I was overdue.  Those 2 weeks were not good diet weeks.  With the surgery and being at my mom’s house etc, I just wasn’t good.  I know those are excuses but its true! So I didn’t do as badly as I had thought and I only gained 8oz (yay!).  I was expecting it to be more like 2 pounds! That’s a lesson to me though that the diet gods may not be so nice next time around.  So I need to re-focus myself and really be good and eat the JC foods and not cheat!!!

Hopefully by next weeks’s weigh-in I will have lost  those 8oz plus more!!!

On a positive note, I truly cannot wear my size 14 shorts anymore.  Those are the shorts that I bought immediately after having the baby and being sick and tired of maternity clothes.  I was horrified at having to buy 14s, but there it was.  Slowly I have gone down, I bought a pair of size 12s but never bought any 10s.  I have recently bought 2 size 8s (woo-hoo!!) They’re a bit snug but they fit.  I put on the 14s today to go out and they are literally falling off.   I have to pull them up every 5 seconds – not comfy.  So I am almost back to my pp size 6 and I can’t wait!!!!!

Diet? What diet?

July 7, 2008 at 1:16 pm (Travel, Weight Loss) ()

Who me?  Yeah that was pretty much my weekend.  I am up a pound and a half.  Yuck.  But I guess that’s what happens sometimes.  We didn’t even go anywhere, but it still seems like we ate out A LOT! And I didn’t exactly try to be super careful with my calorie intake (obviously).  Oh well, I guess now I know what I have to do!

I realize that I’ve reached a difficult point in my weight loss.  I’ve lost all the “excess” weight.  All the baby weight.  I’m at a weight where I’m not huge and uncomfortable, I can fit into some of my pp clothes so I don’t have the same motivation I had before.  These last 10 pounds are going to be hard b/c I’m trying to get myself back to a weight where I looked really good and was happy, but that takes work.  I know I can do it, but it sucks!!  I enjoy food too much!! My ultimate goal is to be happy with how I look by the time we go to Hawaii in October so that’s plenty of time and totally realistic.
