gaining inches around my waist

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Im happy to say that after years and years of trying my body has decided to let me have a baby :) So I guess for the first time ever I am excited about gaining inches around my middle :) I am 42 which is a little older to be thinking about being pregnant, but I must say that this will be my 5th child, I have 4 older boys from a previous marriage, and I feel healthier and happier in this pregnancy than I ever have before. I am in my second trimester and at 18 weeks am actually down 9lbs from my pre-preggo weight :)


I did It!!!

I go to weight watchers with one of my friends from work. After losing focus on weight related goals and starting to focus on trying staying on track and losing something every week, I dont care if its .02lbs I didnt want to gain. Now that Ive been focused Ive lost every week and Im proud to say I finally got my weight watchers keychain and I have lost 39.4lbs. I also had all of my measurements done at curved and I've lost a whopping 17 inches almost 6 off of my stomach alone! YAY!!!! No wonder my vegas pants fit!

weigh in

Thursday, January 12, 2012

So I go to weight watchers, and yes Im losing weight and doing well but if you added up all the up 1lb and up 2lbs down Ive really kind of not been staying focused. Ive been really good for the last 3 weeks totally dedicated to my workouts at least 5 days a week and keeping track of the points Im eating. So last week I had a 4lb loss and this week I had a 3lb loss. My new goal is to stay focused and see what kind of a streak I can go on with solid loss or no gain weigh ins. Even if its .5lbs I'll take it!

    I really do try to stay hydrated some days Im not as good as I should be but I would say on an average day I drink about two litres of water.

    It could also be water at some of those times. As women our bodies are always changing. Do you stay hydrated?

    Hey! I do WW as well and I've been guilty of the same up 2 down 1, up 1 down 2 stuff the last year! Good job!

    Congrats on your weigh-ins the past couple of weeks. Keep up the great work! Sounds like you're really on track and dedicated. I like your idea of staying focused and seeing what kind of streak you can go on without gaining. Every little bit helps!

vegas pants

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

For my last trip to vegas I grabbed a pair of the cutest capri pants I have ever seen. I didnt try them on because they were totally my size. WELL for real the tag on the pants was wrong and they were at least two sizes two small...maybe more. During the year I've put on weight...lots of weight and am happy to say I've lost 30 pounds since April. Im done screwing around its time to get real. SO I was feeling pretty good about myself and decided to dig out some old capris that didnt fit since my weight gain. There in my closet was the adorable black capris with a halo around them. I love them still so I hung on to them and prayed prayed that I might get back in to them. A few days ago I decided to try them on. I am again to going to vegas and needed clothes that would fit. Feeling brave I grabbed my adorable capris and thought Im just going to try......welp....not only did they slide on, and zip up, I can afford to pull the tension on the belt so they fit better. BOOM SHAKA LAKA Im going to vegas and my favorite capris are coming with me!!!!

    Congratulations! What a pleasant surprise. I had a similar experience the other day when my son gave me some jeans he was getting rid of. They were 32's (the size I wore in high school). I tried them on and they fit great. It's so fun when progress sneaks up on you like that.

So I havent really been blogging or tracking the way I normally do, but I have been rocking it. I started running along with my curves and weight watchers and its finally all falling into place. Im down 21lbs in 12 weeks and have lost 6 inches and even better than that 6% body fat. Im kind of simple and everything is a game to me and I always want the prize, so for me weight watchers is awesome. Crazy how something as silly as a star can make me bust my buns. Last week I got my 5% loss star and a 5lb star and now my new obsession is my 10% loss keychain. I WANT THAT KEYCHAIN. :) Last week I ran 22k not all at once of course but during the week. Im only running on my treadmill doing intervals at the moment. I know I am going to need to move it out onto the street eventually but for now I feel safe running inside. Baby steps! Now I need to commit to logging in more often and recording my accomplishments.
