Weigh In and Weekend Review

Let me start off by saying that I lost 1.2 lbs this week. While I am super excited about this loss I am also frustrated with myself. I have been posting these weigh-ins each Monday but I have not really talked about my weight loss journey any. So here goes:

Hubs and I started trying to have a baby in April of 2008. Each month I would eat as if I was eating for 2 when I of course was not. So month after month I started and kept gaining weight. It finally started to bother me in December. So right before Christmas I weighed in at 217 lbs. The largest I have ever been in my life. I did the low carb thing for about a week and lost 7 lbs. I gained one of those back. The first week of January I decided to make a change and started Weight Watchers. Since then I have done really well. When I got on the scale this morning I weighed in at 184.6. In 5 months I have lost 32.4 lbs. Which is great! I am very proud of myself and know that I have done extremely well. I can finally wear clothes that I have not worn in 2 summers. And they are getting too big. Which is the problem. Because of this I have become complacent. I have not been trying as hard and the scale and the way that I feel has reflected that. Take a look at the list below. These are places that I have ate just this week.

Wed. night- Chinese buffet with mom
Thursday night- Mexican
Friday night- Outback
Sat. night- fried fish at a fish camp
Sunday lunch- Chinese buffet with Hubs
Sunday night- dinner at Grandma's, chicken, sweet pot. casserole, cake, ice cream, noodles, bread

How in the world did I lose anything this week?

And I only got to go to the YMCA twice.

Softball is over for us so now I have my afternoons free which means I will be heading to the gym. My goal this week is to not eat out and stay on points. I can do this and I will continue loosing weight. My goal weight is 150-160 and I will make it there. I understand that the less weight you have to lose the longer it takes but I am in this for the long haul.

Weekend Review
Friday after school I met mom and Kirsten and we went shopping and to dinner. Hubs went to the dirt track races so we had all afternoon to shop. I purchased 2 Maxi dresses, one from Target and ones from Kohls. I have not completely decided on keeping the one from Target. I also got this top from Kohls.

Saturday Hubs and I spent the day together and then we went to dinner and Sams Club with my parents that night.

Sunday we went to Church and Sunday School and then I went to the YMCA while Hubs shot bows with one of his friends from church. We had a graduation party at my grandma's that night.
