My Journey--if not for me, for my son!

The day I weighed in at a Weight Watchers meeting on July 1, 2008, was a new low number in the 4 years I had been married--25 pounds lost. That morning, I also found out I was pregnant with my son. My pregnancy added 50 lbs, and the day I went to the hospital I was 200.2--a number I never wanted to see. Now that my son is running and climbing, I'm determined to lose the last few pounds to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight--and then lose some more after that.

My Goals:
Goal #1 get to my pre-pregnancy weight of 156. REACHED 8/24/10!!!

Goal #2: 150 lbs by my 28th birthday Sept 24. REACHED 149.2 on 9/23/10!!!

Goal #3: 145 lbs by October 13. REACHED 144.8 on 11/5/10 (better late than never, right?!?!)

Ultimately, I would like to see 140s again. My husband's never known me that little (it would be 40 lbs lighter than when we got married!).

My Program:
I walk almost every day. Most of the time I don't want to, but my son loves being in a stroller and getting outside. I have a good loop I do that ends up being about 2 miles. It's all I have time for once I get home and try to make dinner and relax, but it's way better than nothing!

Personal Information:
Resident of Cowlitz County, WA. I moved from SoCal in 2003, was thought crazy by everyone I know, and yet I love living in Washington State. It's gotta be one of the prettiest states in the US.

Other Information:
I got whistled at the other day while I was pushing my son in his stroller on a walk. If that doesn't make you appreciate all the hard work you've been doing, nothing will! :-)

Thanks for the pumpkin chai! Maybe the virtual one will satisfy me and keep me from drinking a real one. emoticon

The main reason I didn't like the oatmeal was the texture (think pumpkin guts). It didn't have much flavor, maybe I needed more spices, and it was slimy. I couldn't even eat the one bowl I had made. I had to throw it away. emoticon

Hey you! Just saw your message on my balloon pic! The salesmen in the store we were at (in VA - where they sell guns right in the outdoorsy stores) thought I was crazy taking a picture of their balloons. It just tickled me. You too!

You are almost to your goal...that's great! Hey my husband is in law enforcement too and so he can handle pretty awful coffee too... not me though! I hope you got some decent coffee today. emoticon emoticon
