Weekly Weigh In


Now that I've given birth to my son, I currently weigh far more that I would like to! My highest weight, at the end of my prgnancy, was around 206 pounds. Yikes. Shortly after the delivery, I dropped to 175. My weight has slowly been dropping, but I've decided to chronicle it here, for all to see, as a source of personal motivation.

Goal Weight: 145 pounds/size 8-10 (pre-pregnancy weight; home scale)
Ultra-Goal Weight: 135 pounds/size 8
Current Weight: 164 pounds

Notes: I managed to almost entirely avoid the left-over Halloween candy. I haven't been moving around enough, but I haven't been a total slacker. More exercise is definitely needed to speed up the process! Also, I am too dehydrated - I definitely need to drink more water.

I don't know how you feel about it, but a good friend of mine has lost about 35 lbs. after she joined Curves. It's a 30 minute exercise routine that uses both weight training and light cardio. It's a thought, no? The problem for her at first was making herself get there, but now it's just a part of her day.

Weight loss is as tough as quitting smoking. I'm impressed by your determination and I'm sure you'll bet there in no time!

It didn't help that my best friend lost all of her pregnancy weight the minute she left the hospital and I am still struggling 15 years later ;) but honestly. I did lose much of the weight the first year. Going back to work and sitting in front of a computer all day was my downfall! Good luck, you can do it!
