I do have a little weight loss ticker over there on the right (in case you hadn't noticed) that shows that I have lost some weight, although it doesn't mention where I started from. So I'll tell you, I cheated. I started from Tess's birthday weight. Yeah, that's right, I was 9 months pregnant. But it's always nice to have a head start, so I counted my loss of 7lbs 7 oz in one day as a plus.
If you've paid any attention to my ticker, it has gone down since then. I have lost all the weight from Tess's pregnancy, which is great. Unfortunately, I have Teagan's, Tatum's, Travis's, and Tanner's weight to lose.
Although I lost the 26 pound pregnancy gain (and a few extra pounds) without trying too hard, I knew I would have to put forth some effort to take care of the rest. So I jumped on the WW train. And I have to say, it's really not as hard as I thought it would be. Most days, I find myself not getting all my points in because those extra 10 for breast feeding, are really too many.
Today I added a little exercise by going for a walk, with Teagan. I was worried he would give up before we made it back home, but no, he lasted. His mouth moving as fast as his feet. Constant babble for twenty minutes.
"Ooh, look at that truck, look at that bush, ooh, look at that tree, there's a garage, turn the corner, our house is back that way, is this ex a sizing? There's a squirrel. Ooh, look at that flag. What is that? There's two dogs. Are we ex a sizing?"
Anyway, to lose 10 pounds was one of my goals for the year. And since we're into month 3, I thought I should start working towards that.
WW has you set different goals. So, my first goal is 179, for a few reasons.
- It's the first 10 pounds, which I think, always feels good.
- I won't be completely lying on my driver's license.
- It's my pre Teagan weight.
So, 189, just putting it out there.
