Weigh-in Wednesday

I know I've tried this before, but I think I'm going to try it again to keep myself accountable.

So because I was a failure over the last year with watching what I was eating and drinking (I'll admit that I drank WAY too much! Which is why I've given up alcohol for a very long while) I was back up in weight. Like I lost 10 lbs last Jan-Feb and gained 8 of it back over the last year. YIKES!
My overall goal is to lose 40 lbs. It's going to be tough as I haven't been that weight in over 4 years, but I'm determined to get there. I'm taking a cue from Suzie and others and will weigh in once a week. And try on my "skinny" (not skinny style, just skinny ME) jeans once a week (Lord, help me!). I'll post the stats and my successes and failures. I may even start up my eating blog/ diary again... we'll see. Anyone with me on this?

So here goes:

Weight loss/gain: (Since a week ago Monday) -5.4
Skinny Jeans: haha this was a joke... could not even get them past my knees

I've been doing really well with eating, which has been the hardest I think ;-) When we were TTC I would let myself turn to food and alcohol whenever I was down (I know, totally bad- especially since this was OFTEN) and I just kind of fell into the habit of eating whatever I wanted. Through pgy and even after having B, I still allowed myself just eat.
We've been going back to being vegetarians working towards vegan and it's going really well. My one bad meal this week was Denny's breakfast with my IL and Batman last Friday (he had worked a 6pm-6am shift so we met him for some grub). I savored every bite of my hashbrowns and eggs haha!
Work outs have been relatively easy to keep up with. Don't get me wrong, I sweat until I'm dripping, but I look forward to them everyday. I usually do them during one of B's naps and then if I do a second one, when B goes to bed (Batman and I do them together then). I've been doing 45-60 min on the elliptical just about everyday and then 3-4 days a week of the p90x weight and ab workouts.
I'm pretty happy with my weight loss. I'm not sure it's completely accurate though since my original weigh in was in the evening and my weigh in today was mid morning. But I'll take what I can get haha! Hopefully, it continues in this direction- going down!
So there you have it. Week 1 in the bag!

Good job! I'm with you on this weight loss journey. I have 5 more pounds to lose before I'm back to my pre-pregnancy weight and they are the HARDEST to lose!

As far as MY skinny jeans go...ha! They are a size 0 from the Gap. I doubt those will ever fit again!
