Week 27 Weigh-In

Last week I hit pre-pregnancy weight.

This week the students arrived at school.

I forgot to track my points. I have candy in my classroom. I even bought a big breakfast a couple of mornings.

On the other hand, I was always eating on the go, sleeping at night instead of snacking, and always reaching about 125% or more of my daily activity goal.

All this to say I wasn't sure what today's weigh-in would be like.

Last week I weighed in at 149.8 pounds and today I weigh in at...
146.8!!!
Um, oops. 3 pounds lost in one week isn't what they like to call "healthy". I can't help but laugh when I think, "Oh man, I need to eat more so I don't lose TOO MUCH weight". Crazy.

But y'all, look at that photo. I have collar bones. You can see them. They are distinctly there. That is the highlight of my night.

Week 26 Weigh-In!

Ladies and gentlemen...

Last week I weighed in at 150.6 pounds and was ecstatic because I had hit the 30 pounds lost mark. That was a big deal.

This is bigger.

This week I weigh in at

149.8 :)
That means I am finally, finally, FINALLY at pre-Brooklyn-pregnancy weight. This makes me weigh less than I have since January, 2010. And I'm still going!

I'm really excited about going back to work for a lot of reasons, including the fact that I'll be able to pack my own lunch and not be tempted with snacks around the house. Summertime is a hard time to lose weight!

Next weight loss milestone: 146 lbs will be 35 pounds lost :)

Week 25 Weigh-In!

Howdy, folks.

I'm a day behind, but I weigh 1.4 pounds less, SO THERE.

30 POUNDS LOST. AGAIN.

Last week I weighed in at 152 and yesterday I weighed in at
150.6!!             
Next week I'll be under 150 pounds for the first time since I got pregnant with Brooklyn over 3 1/2 years ago. And we'll have a party.

Week 24 Weigh-In!

So last week I hit my newest milestone: 30 pounds lost. I weighed in at 150.4 pounds. I was ecstatic!

Then I went to Alabama.

A few biscuits, sweet teas, fried chicken and catfish later...

I weigh in today at 152 pounds, for a gain of 1.6. Definitely my worst week yet, but I won't lie, I totally gave up and felt fine about it last week. Summers are hard. Vacation is hard. And when life is stressful (like, driving 10-12 hours in a van with a teething baby), sometimes Peanut Butter M&M's, Cokes and Snickers are the way to go.

The good news is hopefully next week I'll get to celebrate 30 pounds lost, again.

Reminder milestones:
151= 30 pounds lost
150=Pre-Brooklyn-Pregnancy Weight

And just to make me feel better, a reminder of where I was 24 weeks ago.
And, today.

(I'm more than a little disturbed that my boobs are so uneven, but I'm too lazy to take another picture.)

Week 23 Weigh-In (Belated by almost a week!)

We headed out of town to see family in Alabama last Friday and 5:00 AM, so I had just enough time to step on the scale and weigh in... and not enough time to take a picture or blog about it. Now that I'm back in Texas (booooooooo), I'm proud to announce that the last time I weighed in at 152.4 and on Friday, August 1st I weighed in at a fabulous...


150.4!!!

That means,

30 POUNDS LOST!!!!!!!

Big milestone, but remember, I did just say that I spent a week in Alabama... I doubt I'll have anything positive to report tomorrow. Who cares.
