Well...today marks Prestyn's 6 month birthday. That is so hard for me to type without tearing up...I can't believe it's already been 1/2 a year! That's for another post though...this one is about me! ;)
When Prestyn turned 6 weeks old I had my 6 week check with my doctor. And as they do when you go...they weigh you...womp womp womp...I won't share my weight with you, but I will share that it was 35 pounds more than what I am now!
The yummy, fabulous meals that had been brought to us had stopped so it was time to start cooking. I had already decided I would join Weight Watchers so at 6 weeks postpartum...I joined! This wasn't anything new for me since I did it before our wedding...I was successful so I knew I'd be successful again. :)
So it started out with logging points every meal, every day. Since I'm nursing I got more points than if I wasn't so I found it was hard to eat all my points...especially since fruits and vegetables are zero points! I had many successful weeks of losing...a couple weeks of gaining...but would lose again the next week.
Well now that I've been doing it for 4 1/2 months I've kinda levelled off...I'm at the weight I was at when I quit Weight Watchers before our wedding. I'm happy with how I look, but not happy with the number...I know, I know...it's just a number.
My clothes are definitely fitting looser...So it's time to go shopping! Now that I've made it this far...and P has made it to 6 months it's time to join the gym! Prestyn is old enough to go to the daycare at the gym, and it's time for me to tone up!
I'm hoping with joining I'll lose the last 10-15 pounds I want to lose, and tone up! I'm thankful to my mom & husband who cheered me along, and encouraged me as I weighed each week...
No, I wasn't paid by Weight Watchers to write this, but it does work! And I never felt like I was on a "diet". Oh...and I quit logging points a long time ago! I love it for the recipes, and to see how many points something that I wouldn't normally have is...
So 6 weeks to 6 months...I've lost 35 pounds! I'm below pre-pregnancy weight, ready to tone up, and shop for new clothes!
I don't have any before/after pictures to post because I'm not that confident, but I don't mind looking in the mirror anymore. :)
