So I signed back up with Weight Watchers again this past Monday! I am actually really excited because I know that the program works and I will lose weight.
Last March (2012) I signed up and lost 60 lbs. over the course of the next six months! I not only lost weight, but became a lot more active. Started walking slowly and can now jog a mile! I am working on running a 5K this August when I do the Color Run in Grand Rapids! Actually going to be starting the C25K program next Monday.
Anyways, my starting weight last March was 236! I ended up getting down to about 175 last September. I am pretty happy at that weight, although I needed to tone up a lot. Well over the course of the next 6 months I have put back on about 17 lbs. I was somewhat doing WW on my own and I kept losing the same 10 lbs. and gaining it back over the past 3 months. I decided I really needed to just join back up because I need the accountability of weighing in every week. I plan on getting to my goal weight this time and becoming a lifer! I was really so close and am kicking myself for quiting. I was an 18/20 before and now am a 12/14! I am shooting to be an 8/10 right now.
So when I weighed in on Monday evening (hate evening weigh ins) I was 192.4! Not super happy with that number, but pretty proud of myself for taking the initiative to get my butt back in gear. I NEVER want to see the 200's on the scale again.
This week has been going pretty good. I am eating well, tracking everything and getting my activity in. I am walking/jogging and I started a 30 day Squat Challenge on May 1st! It helps so much now that the weather is nice. I also joined a 10 week challenge with Jess over at Operation Skinny Jeans! You should totes check her blog out! Great girl!
I posted some before and sort of after photos below. I am about 10 lbs heavier right now that the after photo, but I will be there soon!
My goals are to not only lose the weight, but tone up and just really be healthy all around. I have a family history of diabetes and heart disease. I am not really sure what number I am shooting for on the scale right now. I am thinking 150 or so.
You will be seeing a lot of WW, fitness and all around healthy posts on here over the next few months. I find that by sharing my story with everyone, it helps me be more accountable with staying on track. I would love for you to follow along! I am so ready to buy some new cute summer clothes in a size smaller than I am in now! Have a great Friday and weekend!
