Okay folks, we’re back in business…well, the fact that I’m home and near a scale that is….motivation and weight loss not so much…Ugh…I’m just having a hard time getting myself motivated to do anything (although I squeezed out a few squats and sit ups at 12:00 last night…but only after DH said my legs have come along way since I was pregnant and that he’d classify them as “hot” again:)). I’m trying to watch my calories but I’m soooo freaking hungry all the time that all I do is graze (no, i’m not pregnant!). I really need to get my butt back to the gym so that this grazing won’t affect me as much. For now I’m trying to sate my hunger with water (at least that’s been the MO the last two days) and just fight fight fight my will to munch.

So, the 132 from two weeks ago was a fluke…bad scale. My new scale (which agrees with the gym’s scale) puts me a bit heaver than I’d originally thought so we’re resetting a bit. I also shortened my stats list a bit and showed every two weeks (it was really getting long:)) In another month or so I’ll probably just show start and now….

Stats by the week:
Week 1 – 142lbs (7 weeks postpartum)
Week 2 – 138lbs – woohoo!
Week 4 – 140lbs – ouch…no excuses, I have a new workout regime and a new resolve for eating healthy…we should start seeing that number drop.
Week 6 – 139.5 – okay, .5 lbs! I attribute that to the fact that i’m putting on muscle and muscle weighs more than fat right??:)
Week 8 – 135 – Hallelujah! Real progress now! I don’t expect it will continue at this rate but we’ll see.
Week 10 – 134 – 1 lb…i’ll take it!
Week 12 – 133 – time to get back to counting calories:)
Week 14 – 132 – still not believing it but until i get a new scale, we’re going with it:)
Week 15.5 – 136.5 – taken on Monday (hence the .5 in 15.5 weeks) NOTE: this is on a new scale which disagrees with my old scale so we’re kind of resetting a bit.
Week 16 – 135.8 – if we look at Monday’s weight and today’s weight I’m doing good…almost a whole pound in 5 days

The Goal this week is to continue to try for more water and get my butt back to the gym (or at least work in some activity to my day – we’re picking up the new bike trailer for Noah this weekend so maybe that means we can do a few after-work rides with him).

Okay, on to making friends!

Here’s the regular Friday Follow – Ian’s group!


and a new one I’ve seen around:

Hello to all you new folks! I hope you find something here that you’ll want to come back over and over again for! This blog was started to keep the fam up to date on my first pregnancy and has continued after my little Noah was born. Topics range from smitten momma ramblings to hard hitting pieces about 529 plans and the like (haha…hard hitting..maybe not but it’s fun to dream that I could actually write something that could be considered hard hitting) and has a smattering of photography (of my little man of course) thrown in for fun.

Me? I’m an almost a 30 something (gah!) working mamma who would love to ditch her mortgage in order to stay home with little man but sadly bought when the housing market was at its peak and probably couldn’t even break even in the sale. Some day I dream of leaving the corporate world to do something more creative – like photography or crocheting!:) But for now amuse myself with hobby photography and blogging.

Anywho…glad to e-meet you and I hope you leave a comment to let me know you stopped by!

  1. Fun blog. You are one brave woman putting all that info on your weight. Kudos to you and you are doing really well. I need to do that so everyone will ask how I am doing!!!

  2. My heart goes out to all you know with colitis, the monster of such illness is extensively evil. Yes it’s so amazing how God works, in other times I have smelled my brother; bad times. Never felt his presents so stoutly as I did that night or had something happen as the call did at 8am! I was seen as I said the day following so it was very quick. I was at rock bottom and it wasn’t pain that was to be feared at the end it was myself that was to be feared as it got so much worse and I was so tired of living at 27 without hope or quality to live trapped in my home. It’s going well and with friends like you I have another reason to smile. Will be updating my blog about the clinical trial at every point and hope to see your warm heart there with me as I walk this journey. God knows I need all the support I can get.

    Your weight loss sounds a lot like mine in Jan/Feb. I’m a on a break now, though. :) As long as I’m home for the summer and don’t have to wear work clothes, I don’t care. :)

  4. Well, you’ve captured my attention with the Shape Up title of your blog post…Ha! Aren’t all of us momma’s out there looking for some of that?! I workout every day and have since before the birth of my first son and still don’t feel like I did back in my 20’s?! Why is that??! Ha, I have a workout blog too, so we can share inspiration??!
