I have been following a "Mommy Blog" that I randomly came across, Loving My Life, and Sarah (the Mommy) posted on her blog one Thursday her weight!! I read her post and clicked the link to the blog that was hosting the "Weekly Weigh-in" and thought how cool! What a great way to stay accountable for what I eat each week and to make me think twice about skipping a workout. So I am going to join in and post my weight too. So, drum roll please, here it is... my weight...
Scary, huh? My goal is to get back to my pre-baby weight of 178lbs and then lose 8 more pounds to make it an even 170. Since Mac was born I have lost about 30 pounds or so (yes I gained a ridiculous amount of weight while preggo). I have started back running 3 times a week. Right now I run a total of 9 miles and in a couple of weeks I plan on moving that number up to 12. I really enjoy running and that's how I lost my weight before Mac came along but now I seem to have less energy and it's harder to stay motivated and that's where this Weekly Weigh-In comes in. I am extremely competitive and even though this weigh-in is not a competition I am always happy to compete against myself! So in theory trying to beat my weight lose each week should be easy and fun, a proper challenge for someone like ME!
And!! Participating in the weigh-in will help me on my Project 101 List #82 (lose 25 pounds by the end of the year) and it will start me on my way to crossing off #81 (post to weekly weigh in)!!
Now I am behind by 5 weeks on this weigh-in and I think they are doing it for a year but I say better late than staying over weight!
PS. Please excuse the awful scale I am using. Bear with me, #80 on my 101 List is to get a new, good bathroom scale!!
