Ready to Weigh Again...

Weight-In Wed
Yes I'm still working on my weight.

I haven't posted regarding this in a good month and a half. And this post will not prove me successful in my weight loss endeavor, but I am here to show myself (and you) that I don't wanna go back!

I pretty much allowed a "self plateau" for about 2 1/2 months, which is not great for my goal but I am blessed to have only gained 3.5 pounds from my lowest weight back in August - not losing my pre-pregnancy goal weight and only missing my 20 pound loss goal by 1 pound!

Food
I am sad about this... not only for the fact that I was giving up a lot, but for the fact that I WASTED A LOT of money eating out and being lazy! Praise the Lord for His grace in only 3.5 pounds gained off of almost 3 months spoofing it!!!


Water
Yeah, um this existed in ordering a water to come with my soda, but I wouldn't drink the whole thing! BAD!


Exercise
I have been trying to get back on it with P90X I just have no energy or motivation to workout when the kids get to go sleep... did you hear that? "get to" - can you tell I have been going to sleep also? :)


Challenges
Motivation to get off my rump! I have been feeling kinda blah lately attitude was and it is affecting EVERYTHING else! We also have more on our schedule now-a-days and that seems to affect my energy level.


Successes
I maintained my pre-pregnancy goal weight!


Plans for the Week
No more eating out when it is not needed, and when we do I WILL make good choices. We have a couple birthday celebrations this weekend and I will be going to the restaurant website to know I am ordering well before I even get there!


Weigh-In
Start: 184.5 lbs.

The weeks I've missed....
August 25th: 163.5 - lost 0.5 lbs.
September 1st: 165 - GAINED 1.5 lbs.
September 8th: 162.5 - lost 2.5 lbs.
September 15th: 163.5 - GAINED 1 lb.
September 22nd: 165.5 - GAINED 2 lbs.
September 29th: 164 - lost 1.5 lbs.
October 6th: 165.5 - GAINED 1.5 lbs.

YESTERDAY: 165.5 lbs.
Total lost = 19 lbs. & 12 inches

I messed my 20 pound loss goal, but I still never went past my pre-pregnancy goal, I've maintained that the whole time! Through God's grace alone.


Motivation
I have not taken pictures since I have somewhat fallen off the wagon. But I did want to show the comparison between my start pic and my lowest weight (so far) pic to show that I DO NOT want to go back there!

"No food tastes as good and being fit feels."



These pics represent a 22 pound total loss........

Yeah!!! You're looking great!!! Don't let small set-backs frustrate you!!! I'm sure you've been told this, but if you find yourself on a plateau, that means that you need to increase your calorie burn a bit. The melancholy you're feeling could be caused by the same thing: lack of exercise. Yep, you probably already knew that, too! Keep up the good work!!!

BTW, I love your new header! (It's probably not that new, but it's been a while since I've had time to click around to my friends' blogs!) Very pretty!!!
