Weigh In Monday

Monday, April 13, 2015

You guys, I am super excited to tell you about my week! Last Monday, I told you that I had used all my extra points (probably plus some) on the weekend and I was ready to take on the week with perfect 28 point days, and that is what I did! The results were amazing! Check it out!


I lost 4.2 pounds. 4.2 pounds. I was excited, shocked and I have to say, very proud of myself! There were a few times I had to make some tough choices, but it was so worth it to get that motivation of losing big! 

Last week, I gained 1.6 pounds, so I lost all of that again, plus 2.4!! Weight Watchers is working for me and I am still really loving it! 

I need this week to be great as well, because starting Friday, the kids are on vacation, and I see that being a challenge for me with what we have planned. So this week will be important to stay motivated and lose a few more pounds before that happens. 

I will only have 6 days in between weigh ins this week, because I will be away on Saturday, so I am looking at all 28 point days from now until Friday. Here is a look at what we will be eating...



Also, today is the day I start taking my picture again! I have joined Bohemian Housewife for her 8 week fitness challenge. I am starting a week late, so I, am on a 7 week challenge. I am looking forward to this, in hopes of getting me into an exercise routine. 

The goal of this challenge is 30 minutes of any kind of physical activity 6 days/week. 



Starting Weight: 192.2 (I am so close to seeing the 180's!!)

Since this is a Fitness challenge, let's do some measurements as well! 
**I will measure again after the last week of the challenge

Bust: 43 inches
Waist: 39.5 inches
Hips: 43 inches

**At least my waist keeps me from being a complete square :)

Here is my plan for this week and I will update you with how I did next Monday! 

Monday: Piyo, T25 or a walk
Tuesday: After dinner Family Walk
Wednesday: Piyo, T25 or a walk
Thursday: After dinner Family Walk
Saturday: Elliptical or Treadmill
Sunday: Elliptical or Treadmill

Well, I think that covers everything! This post had a lot going on. I am off to make my grocery list. I want to be in and out of the grocery store in record time today. The weather is gorgeous and I want to enjoy it. We have been waiting for nice weather to come around in Maine for far too long. I am going to need to enjoy every second of it for the next week! 

Speaking of this week, come on back for a great new recipe with Weight Watchers points, WIAW, Friday Favorites and maybe one fun post! 

Linking up my meal plan with the Laura's and Jill!


and some Motivation Monday...

A Fresh Start

Have a fabulous Monday, friends!

  1. Yay, keep it up. I am curious if weight watchers would work for me. I am the same weight you are right now. I've done a ton of reading in to it and I'm not sure what's keeping me from trying. Good luck!

    1. I don't see why it wouldn't work for anyone! It is really easy to follow and does not feel like a diet! Let me know what you think, if you decide to do it! Good luck!

    1. I did WW maybe 11 years ago to lose just a little bit of extra weight and it worked great, but it has taken me this long to get back to it. It can be hard to get started again!

    1. I bet it is hard! I don't work outside the home and still find it hard to get a workout in, so I can only imagine trying to fit one in working 10 hour days. Good luck!

  8. Way to go! You're rocking it. I'm trying to get back in the swing of things and get in shape for summer—not so I can look like I did in college (although that would be nice), but to have more energy to run around with my toddler this summer.
