Weight Loss Mission: 190!

So last time, I said I haen't lost any extra weight. I was 192 for about 2 weeks in a row. Not sure why but it is what it is.

This week (on Monday) I'm 190! Woo Hoo!

Last week, I was saving up my points to go to a karaoke bar on Saturday. Alcohol = points and apparently my favorite drink, and Adios... is like somewhere around 10 or 12 points each! So I had about 13 points left over for myself but I also had TWO drinks. So I guess I went over my points. But I must have sung all those calories out cuz I still lost another TWO pounds!

This week has been good so far. I actually had so many points left over yesterday that I was able to have some dark chocolate from Trader Joe's! YUM! Im such a chocoholic.

I should TECHNICALLY have 36 points for the day, but I think I'm going to go down to 33 because I'm taking away 1 for the weight loss and then another 2 for breastfeeding. Im substituting the bottle like maybe, once a day (on average) so I think I can afford to take away some more points. I am still MOSTLY breastfeeding, so I cant take away all those 'breastfeeding' points.

I'm also going to be starting that workout video thing.. I think it's called P90-X or whatever. Hopefully it will help since I cant go jogging. No running shoes and no jogging stroller >_<

Weight Loss Mission: Slightly Disappointed

That was a pic of me from Tuesday 7.12.11. I took it like, 30 minutes before posting this blog. LoL.

So apparently, as of Monday the 11th, I haven't lost any NEW weight. I'm still 192 (down 8 pounds from where I started) so it's a little disappointing. But at least I haven't GAINED any weight. That would totally suck!

There's one weird thing though.. on Friday, I weighed myself and I was 190(down 10 pounds!). Then I think the weekend happened and I just didnt do well. I wasn't home so I couldn't count my points. I had some ice cream I probably shouldn't have had. And on Sunday, I had some lasagna... Not a lot, but I'm sure it was still a good amount of points with all the cheese and crap. I don't even LIKE lasagna!

Well, this week WILL be better! I'm not gonna really be home this weekend either, but I WILL be counting my points as best I can and keeping a Weight Watchers food points list on my husbands Smart Phone so no matter what I eat, I can find it and count it.

Should I count the alcohol I'm gonna be having at the bar on Saturday though? Thoughts WELCOME! :)

Weight Loss Mission: 4th of July Weekend

See this picture of me? See those white pants I'm wearing? I couldn't fit them a MONTH ago. I'm tellin you, I love those pants and I'm so happy I can fit into them again! I do hope that some day, they will be too big for me ;-)

But as of Monday (July 4th) I have lost a total of 8 pounds! Woo Hoo! This fourth of July weekend was pretty tought though...

Saturday I went to a BBQ over in Richmond, CA with my family. The food was great but it was definately not weight loss friendly. LoL. There was macroni and cheese (with bacon in it), BBQ chicken, ribs, cake, blow pop martini's... and a whole lot of other yummy stuff.

To stay as good as I could with my weight loss mission, I had a small protion of two different types of mac & cheese and 3 chicken legs (the last one was later in the party). I also had 1 bite of Rice Krispy treat and like 2 bites of my own Peach Cobbler. I think I did a pretty good job with my options!

Saturday and Sunday we were in San Francisco so I wasn't able to count my points barely at all, so I just had to rely on my memory and just picking out what foods were best and portioning them out small.

So as of Monday July 4th, I am now 192 pounds! I am 8 pounds lighter and I am feeling great!

I have a karaoke bar to go to for a birthday party on the 16th and I'm hoping to look sexy for it! I'm confident enough in myself that I will look as best as I can be. It gives me an excuse to shop for a new dress. Haha!
