Weight Watchers has called me back home!

BabProject - Week 10 (I think) - So I skipped on writing two weeks worth of BabProject (Body After Baby Project) posts. Sorry! it was basically because I was down on myself for doing so poorly and not having anything positive to report. But now, I am on top of the world! I decided to re-join Weight Watchers, and that was the best decision ever. I was reluctant to do it before because of money issues, but the day I went online to join, there was a deal where registration was only $1. So I had to do it!

So far I'm doing really well. In two weeks, I've lost 5 lbs! That is awesome because I was at a stale mate for about a month since I stopped breastfeeding and wasn't really burning any extra calories. But for some reason, there is something about the weekly meetings that motivates me every time. I guess it's just the idea of getting weighed in and seeing in my little booklet the progress (or lack thereof) that drives me. And some may say "well maybe you'll end up not going all together to avoid weigh ins." For me, that's not an option because We're already on a tight budget, and we're paying $40/month for me to do this, so it's important that I use every last dime's worth by going each week.

Months before we conceived, I joined Weight Watchers for the first time, and lost about 15 lbs. Then I got pregnant, cancelled my membership, and quickly became a member of the "wacky cravings club". So back I go, to the wonderful home I call Weight Watchers. I can't wait to see how much weight I can lose this time around. My goal is to lose another 20 lbs by the new Year. That's 5 lbs per month. I already reached this month's goal of 5 lbs, hopefully I can keep it up. Eventually I want to get into working out again. I'm still so exhuasted for some reason - oh wait, I know why, it's called "my little munchkin gets my head spinning". So thinking of going on my stair master for even 15 minutes makes me yawn and want to curl up under the covers with a good book. We'll see what happens. I'm going to try to go as long as I can with just counting points LOL and around the time I start to get to a plateau, I'll pull out the big guns and start working out 3x/week. Hey, I'm being real with myself. No use making all these goals when I know that right now I don't have any intentions of keeping the exercise one. But the counting points I can do, and so far I've been doing that well! So exciting!


  1. Congrats on loosing 5 pounds!! I've given up for now, because I am always hungry!!!I think I'll have to wait until I stop breastfeeding to really start dieting. Then, I think I'll go to weight watchers since it seems to be working so well for you!!

  2. Thanks! ya you should def join weight watchers when you're ready. It's very motivating and they allow for "cheat days" without making you feel like a failure. You have 35 extra points a week to use either a little each day, or in one bulk on the weekend. Love it!

  3. Congrats, girl! Check out my post today ... we think alike except I'm sticking with (free) SparkPeople. :)

  4. Hey, I gave you a blog award. ;) Head over to mine and check it out, girl!

  5. Congrats, I am so excited and proud of you!!! I am really thinking of doing WW online, but the registration was $20 when I checked and I so dont want to pay that. I'm giving it a few days to think about it.

    And, I think you're being very responsible understanding where you stand with exercise at the moment. Nutrition is very important, and for me, it's the hardest part of the game.

    Keep up the good work and I'll be back next week to see how it's all going!
