1 pound away!

Monday, January 08, 2007

Fridays are weigh in time for me. This week I lost another pound and a half so now I am one pound away from my goal of 135! I never ever thought I would see the 130s again but I am living proof that it can be done with watching what you eat and excercise. People are starting to notice to! I am really happy with my waist,hip,thigh measurements although I would really like to see some tone in my arms and lower stomach. I have only lost one inch off my arms in 7.5 months. Most of my workouts involve the lower body so I am going to make more of an effort on my arms. I have bigger arms normally anyways because they used to be really muscly and I hated it but now I WISH I had that muscle tone back! My stomach could use some work still but after having two kids close together whose wouldnt? I get down sometimes when I see people who have just had babies a few months ago and they are stick skinny. I have a friend like that her baby is 5 months old and she probably weighs 120 soaking wet. I used to get jealous whenever I seen here bc she gained 50 plus pounds while pregnant and I only gained 22 how can she look better than me!?!? But then she told me she never eats and only eats salad. I am not willing to starve myself for a loss. I am not willing to take diet pills or wean my baby to lose weight. I am a vain person and I care alot about looks but I have gone down those roads before only to be disappointed and gain the weight back quicker than it came off. I want to do this healthy even if it takes longer. I just have to remember that! When I was a kid heck even as a teen I was to skinny I never thought I would have to worry about weight. But with my first baby I got really big(even though I only gained 35 lbs) most of it was fat. I was huge even after delivery and I sat around and did nothing about it until she was 8 months old and then I just would work out and diet for a few weeks then stop and start the cycle over again. So I am really proud of the work I have done and the results I have seen this time around. I want to have another baby(not anytime real soon) But I would like the same spacing about 2-3 years apart and I want to be at a healthy weight way before we try again and to be able to enjoy my new sexy body for awhile. I took pretty good care of myself this pregnancy but for the next I want to be even healthier. anyways enough blogging for the night I am off to bed so I can get up and use my new workout dvd! gotta mix it up a little when you cant get to the gym!

    Congrats on your weight loss! I understand your frustration at other moms that seem to bounce right back. My sister has 2 kids and was back to her pre-pregnancy weight within a few weeks of having each of them. I, on the other hand, have had to work my behind off to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight and am finally there now that my daughter is 7 months old.
