Weigh In Wednesday!

This is going to be a short post because I MIGHT have another 20 minutes before Sugarcube wakes up. However, I wanted to be diligent and keep up with my "Weigh In Wednesday" posts!

I stepped on my shiny NEW scale this morning (not for the first time since delivery, yeah I cheated) and...It read 165.5 pounds....

I guess I'm okay with a 24 lb loss in 3+ weeks;)

Now the REAL work begins...This leaves me with 40 lbs to loose to get back to my comfortable weight of 126 lbs and 27 lbs to get to my pre-pregnancy weight of 138 lbs---

Those numbers scare me, frankly, but I can do this!!!

To kick start my weight loss journey---Friday I went and bought a new pair of running shoes (that ended up in a $25 parking ticket) but I scored some comfy sapatos!!!

I also upgraded my iPod to a pretty pink Nano with some bad ace tunes! This equals motivation and inspiration ♥
So now, I just have to wait another 3 weeks or less to really start using them i.e trading in the walking for running, yay!

The sad news is, while I'm breastfeeding, I'm not supposed to count calories or diet etc...I have to actually eat MORE which also scares the bejezsus outta me---That goes against everything we've been taught in how to loose weight! The key is eating healthy calories and EXERCISE!!! Also, I'm not supposed to loose more then 1.5 lbs a week..Anything more then that could effect my milk supply in a negative way...So it's looking like what everyone says is true---It took nine months to gain the weight so expect it to take nine months to loose the weight...Sigh...

Oh well!! I'm sure those nine months are going to just fly by with a little one to raise and chase around:) 

Okay, yup---I called it! Baby girl is screaming at me through the monitor so mommy duty calls!

P.S. These Wednesday weigh in's are for my own personal motivation, really. I realize it's not cutting edge material so you're not going to hurt my feelings if you want to skip these posts altogether:)

Until next week!  


  1. Good luck on your weight loss! =)

  2. That big loss at the beginning is a nice motivator, huh? I loved it! I was all, "I am the QUEEN of weight loss!! Who ever in the history of the world has lost that much weight so fast?!" And then every other woman who's ever had a baby raised their hands and I felt kinda average again. LOL

    It will come off though- nursing helps SO SO much!!! Keep up the great work!! :)

  3. If you're breastfeeding be really careful working out because you will kill your supply.

  4. You'll get to where you want to be. Hang in there.
