Weight Watchers Weigh In: Week Fifteen


I hopped on the fancy gym scale today and THE 180s ARE HISTORY!

Today the scale said 178.8, which I will call 179 as not to split hairs.


I am OFFICIALLY back to my pre-pregnancy weight!

I was 179lbs when I found out I was pregnant and 229lbs the day before I gave birth -- it took about 6 months to get back here and I feel great!!

Now, I'm not at my goal yet, but baby steps, ladies and gents.

Today I was at the gym again, for personal training session #5. I am feeling so much stronger -- I even did 13 of those deadly, twisting, weighted crunches! They just about do me in but afterward I feel FABULOUS!

Friday will be my last session with my trainer. Then I will start going to lots more classes in the morning when there is daycare at the gym & I'll keep up the weight training that I've been taught. My routine with the trainer only takes about 30 minutes to complete and works out my entire body -- very nice. On Friday she's also going to take my measurements again to see if I've improved in that department as well. Fingers crossed.

Now, I know I haven't talked about the Weight Watchers portion of my weight loss journey in a little while -- and to be honest, I haven't been strictly counting points. I know, I know -- shame on me, but with the move I've been so preoccupied and really I'm just making excuses and not eating as well as I should be. However, I must be doing something right to still be seeing results. My eating habits could definitely be better, but they are nowhere near as miserable as they were before this whole journey started.

Once we move and get settled I will finally be able to cook at home again (all of my cooking gear has been packed up). I will also feel better knowing that I am getting all the fruits & veggies that I should.

Moving is a stressful endeavour, but, as with weight loss -- it will happen & it will be grand!

I hope you're all having a fantastic Wednesday, and once again -- thank you for all the support! It's so nice to read all of your comments each week, pushing me forward and sending your congrats! It really does make a difference to see you all on my team!

Peace, and thank you.

Stay tuned for next Wednesday when I see if I've conquered my bridesmaid dress fitting goal of 175lbs!


Just 4lbs til my July 29th goal of 175lbs.
Just 19lbs til my final goal of 160lbs.

Very well done you! Doesn't it feel great to get back to pre baby numbers? Took me 4 years, not your fantastic 6 months though!

Rooting for you to smash these next 4lbs. =)
