100lb Success

I've been so unbelievably busy that i haven't been around to update my last couple of weigh ins. Tons of good news to share!

I'm still loving my journey with Weight Watchers. Finally i have found something that works and doesn't make me feel deprived. I don't even feel like i NEED cheat days where as before i would live for the weekend. The biggest plus i see to the program is that even if i don't have time to workout for hours every day, i still lose weight. I've barely been able to workout for the last two weeks due to visiting family and various appointments. I've gotten in walks and the random workout from time to time but nothing consistent like i like to do. Surprise surprise, i'm still losing weight!

As of Saturday i was down 15lbs since starting WW just a few weeks ago. I'm below pre-pregnancy weight, back in my pre-pregnancy clothing/sizes, and back at my 100lbs lost! FINALLY! Now i am only 4lbs from my lowest weight ever and i can move on to brand spanking new territory.

This week i am working on a 2x a day workout routine, just to jumpstart things again and hopefully reach my lowest weight ever within the next two weeks. My mornings start with a workout a friend shared with me that she found on Pinterest called "The 100 Workout". I honestly thought it wouldn't be too good of a workout and was fully prepared to do something in addition to it but it took at least 30 minutes and kicked my butt! Definitely a good way to start the day. My evenings will be a mix of all my new Bob Harper Dvd's that i haven't tried yet.

I also have my honeymoon booked for May 1st of this year and i need to be beach body ready! I set a goal for myself of 169lbs by then, that is still my goal but i also want to tone up a tone. I have a lot of goals set out, and plan on reaching every one of them.

Weight watchers weigh-in: Week 2

Anyone else hate the dreaded week 2? Its usually a killer. Week 2 usually sees a lot of disappointed people, people giving up. Everyone is coming off of the really exciting week 1, expecting a follow up, being let down. Every week can't be week 1...and it shouldn't be! In my opinion, surviving week 2 weeds out the giver uppers from the lifers. This isn't for two weeks, your not going to reach goal in two weeks, and you shouldn't. This is for the long haul, this is for life. If you can live in the healthy weight loss world for 2 weeks, you can do anything!

Well, I made it through my 2 weeks, and my results prove it! On a whole, I'm down 11lbs since beginning weight watchers. My jeans are falling off (hellooooo shopping spree!) And my shirts are fitting better. What's better? I'm at my lowest weight since my twinsies were born and only 3lbs above pre-twin weight. Its a happy day!

I have a huge goal set for myself, I will share soon!

Shaking things up a bit

Super exciting news in the world of me...I joined Weight Watchers! I have had a few friends suggest it for a while now, and after an awful start to the year as far as weight loss is concerned i finally decided to give it a go. The verdict?

Surprise surprise, it works! I'm loving it already. I am on week 2 and have now gone through my first official weigh in. During week 1 i lost 7lbs. Results aren't typical, and definitely won't continue like that but i feel like i have finally found something that dumbs it down and makes it easy for me and i'm ecstatic! It's really hard to be a mom of three little ones and count calories all day long. Even then i'm never really sure if i should be counting calories, fat, fiber, carbs, sodium...? You can't really count them all and make the absolute right choices all the time. Weight watchers has made it so much easier for me. There really is no gray area, it's all black and white, and that's what i need. Best of all, it's not a fad...this weight will get off and stay off.

In other exciting news, i order a ton of new Bob Harper (you all know how i love him!) dvd's for working out and i can't wait to start reviewing those and feeling the burn. I did my first workout with one of them tonight and i was sweating buckets. Who doesn't love that?!?! Wanna sweat, get with Bob. FOR SURE! I will post which workouts i do and what i think of them along the way in case anyone else wants to jump on the wagon with me.

That is all from my corner of the world. My weigh ins are on Mondays now so be on the lookout for super exciting Monday posts!
