After the birth of Oliver last year I was determined to lose the weight that had been increasing further with each pregnancy since 2003. With six babies in those seven years I’ve ended up with a whole lot of excess lumps, bumps and wobbly bits.
I joined up with Weightwatchers Online, which I found convenient and much more preferable to my reclusive nature than the real life meetings. In 36 weeks I managed to lose about 42lbs. That’s if I remember correctly. Which I probably don’t as if something isn’t written on my calendar it tends to get forgotten pretty quickly. I didn’t get to goal as I stopped watching my weight when I found out I was pregnant again.
Me, being me, made the most of being pregnant and not watching my weight and gorged on plenty of chocolate and ice cream. I told you the baby liked ice cream. He was our heaviest so far at 8lb 9oz when he was born, quite a difference from our normal 6 or 7 pound something babies. That 8lb 9oz didn’t make much of a dent in the rest of the weight I’d gained though so it’s time to get back on the weight loss saddle and start shrinking.
Like last time I’ll be doing my weekly weigh-in on a Monday and I’ll be reporting back here.
Hopefully I’ll be reporting good news.
Every single week.
For all the two weeks it takes for me to lose the 60lbs I’m aiming to lose.
I’d be very grateful for encouragement or a kick when I need it. And if anyone there wants to join in with me (you don’t necessarily have to be following WW) it’d be good to have the company. You can link up your blog reporting your progress (or plateaus, the evil things) with mine on a Monday. So that this second round of Monday Weigh-Ins don’t get mixed up with the first lot from last year they’ll be under the title Monday Weigh-In (Free Skinny Me).
Because I have no shame I’ll once again share my starting weight here with you.
Starting weight: 13st 1lb
Goal weight: 8st 11lb
Overall weight loss goal: 60lbs
So there you go. Just reading that makes me feel like I’ve eaten Skinny Me, and she resides somewhere under the cellulite and flabby bits.
Skinny Me, I’m going to try and get you out of there, I promise!
