Post-Partum Weight Loss

[[[sigh]]]  Okay, so this weight loss journey is taking much longer than I expected it to.  But it's okay; it really is.  I've averaged less than a pound a week of weight loss on Weight Watchers, and I'm good with that, especially since getting to the gym has still posed quite a challenge (and I've cheated quite a bit).

ETA:  Let's just remember the craziness my body went through to have this precious miracle of a boy.

35 weeks pregnant

As promised, here are my progress pics.  Ugh, they're so embarrassing.  Why am I doing this?  Oh yeah, because I said here that when I got to my first goal I'd give a progress picture.  Damn.  It keeps me motivated to stay on my diet, though, to know that I have to show these pics!

You can click the image for the gory closeup.
And please note that I did not leave home in any of these totally hot outfits.  
My next set of goals are in 5 pound increments until I get up to 15 more pounds of weight loss, and then I'm stopping (going into maintenance mode).  I'm pretty happy, though.  WW has been really good for me this time around - much healthier than it used to be.  

Gotta good WW recipe to share or your own progress pics?


  1. Annie shush it you're gorgeous!!

  2. I think I might have to steal this idea and do this over on my blog...with pictures. BUT, I will have to come up with a new "TITLE" since my youngest is TWO. HA!

    Good job and you look awesome!

  3. You look GREAT!!! Especially considering you only gave birth 3 1/2 months ago! BTW, I've been meaning to tell you, Jess Grigar started a (private) Women's Health/Fitness Group on Facebook and it's REALLY been very helpful for me! Most of the women who are members of the group are mommies who are just trying to achieve their goals of eating healthier and exercising more and (in general) living more healthy lives! We talk about everything! Recipes, exercise tips, all kinds of stuff! I've really found it to me much more helpful than actually attending my Weight Watchers meetings. If you're interested, let me know and I'll invite you to join the group, or I'll let Jess know to invite you. She's the Administrator.

    Either way, congrats on your progress! Keep up the good work!

  4. I think you look great! And I love whoever's giving you two thumbs up in your 11 week picture! lol

  5. Thanks, y'all. :) You're too kind. Misti, you should totally do it! Courtney, that was Michael. Haha. I didn't notice he was doing it until after he pointed it out later.


I love to hear from you!
