It's Curtains For You...

...lacy, gently wafting curtains.

It's that time again, folks.

Time for me to start another lose weight/get fit initiative.

The post baby body has gone on long enough. As a matter of fact, the pre-baby body had seen its day as well. So here I am, freshly showered after the gym, eating a surprisingly tasty non-fat yogurt.

I am almost ashamed to admit that I am going the Weight Watchers route this time. No meetings or fees. Just counting points. Which I thankfully get more of as long as I am breastfeeding (yay!). This system seems to be the most effective for me, since it forces me to pay attention to everything I eat. And this time, I am uber organized.

I shop with a calculator in my purse and figure out points before anything (aside from veggies) goes in my cart.

A printed list of what is in the fridge/pantry is posted in the kitchen with point values, so a trip to the kitchen is always an informed one.

I have a day planner where I track EVERYTHING I eat. Seriously. Everything.

I also have grand plans (and a pretty folder) to gather recipes/products that I find I especially enjoy along the way.

How's it going so far? Great. I just started Monday, but still. I'm not starving myself, just making smart choices about what I eat. I am drinking a glass of water before a meal so I feel a little fuller...but I snack throughout the day.

Not only am I eating responsibly, but I am also getting to the gym. Every day this week so far, 30 minutes on the elliptical each time.

What's the goal? For now, 5 pounds. Then another. And another. Until I hit 30.

So...who's with me? Who else has a "Freshman 10" they'd like to finally bid farewell to?

  1. Well, I guess I'm going in the opposite direction as you weight wise, but I have an excuse. :)

    Good luck with Weight Watchers. Have you ever done it before? People usually seem to be really successful with it, right? And I can't imagine it will be a big change for you since you already usually eat healthy.

  2. Good for you!! Let me know how it goes. I have never tried Weight Watchers. I am going to go the Abs Diet route again. It was easy enough last time.. and successful (while I was on it). Just gotta keep up with it!
