Weigh in Friday #WeightWatchers

I was pretty excited to step on the scale this morning knowing that I was on track with my Points all week—I wasn’t nearly as active this week, so I wasn’t sure how it would all play out.

I lost 1.2 lbs. this week for a total loss of 6.9 lbs. in 3 weeks!

I would love to see the weight fall off really fast, I mean who wouldn’t? But I know that losing almost 7 lbs. in 3 weeks is really great progress and I should be happy with that. The important thing is that I could eat this way for the rest of my life and be completely happy. I don’t feel deprived, I just have to practice a little bit of self control. My body is so much happier eating this way—I feel a lot better.

Here are my Weight Watchers healthy checks for the week:

All good, except for the lack of exercise this week—which I’ve explained in previous posts. I’m feeling better and better every day though—I’m happy to be feeling “happy” again and to have my energy back.

Stats for the week:

  • Weekly Points Used: 48/49
  • Active Points Earned: 7
  • Total steps: 34,263
  • Weight Loss this Week: –1.2 lbs.
  • Total Weight Loss to Date: –6.9 lbs.

Oofta! I did not get much activity at all—as in I got almost 30,000 less steps this week. That’s what napping pretty much all day will do to you, which is another reason why I hate feeling so down and drained.

I will be interested to see how my level of activity makes a difference with my weight loss. Last week, I was a lot more active and lost slightly less than this week. I think it goes to show that your “diet” is what makes the biggest difference in terms of weight loss.

I am super duper happy today because hubby has been gone since Wednesday morning and he will be back home today. I survived taking care of a sick baby for almost 3 days all by myself. Whew! She’s getting better.

Baby girl’s 1st birthday is one week away. I can hardly believe it. It really is true that “the days are long by the years are short”. It is amazing to think how different life was one year ago—and I’m still getting used to it! haha

Speaking of her birthday, we’re having a very small party with grandparents. If any of my siblings want to come, you’re all invited. I need to get prepared! Since I’m Mrs. Anxiety lately, I’m just going to make it easy on myself and order cupcakes from my favorite Cupcakery instead of baking a cake and stressing over that. I’m not totally sure what I’m going to do about supper—maybe grill out or something.

I need to find the decorations I want—I have one more place I want to look and if they don’t have something better, I found some I like at Target. They will be pink, OF COURSE.

I also want to get her a cute outfit to wear, but I’m kind of waiting until I decide on decorations because I want to get her a little outfit to match. Am I silly? lol. I would love to get her a little outfit that says “1” on it. I especially love this one on Amazon, but I’m afraid it will be too small since she’s wearing 18 mo. clothes.

I found something kind of similar at Wal-Mart for a lot cheaper—so I might go that route. Or I will find her a pretty dress or something and some cute hairbows because I’m pretty sure I will be able to have her wear her hair in a pigtail for the first time! Fun mommy stuff.

Anyways, enough rambling. Have a great weekend! Don’t forget to let me know if you want to join the Online Book Club!

  1. For future reference, I love birthdayexpress.com They have the themes and all decorations already together for you. I've used them several times in the past, even just for the "party of 8" box for our family. I did 2 or 3 of my kids' 1st bdays from there, too. Just to warn you that she may not keep in her piggy tail the first time. She may. All babies are different. I think it is SO CUTE to see a baby girl with pigtails!!! I remember Aubree always pulling her bows out. Lol Drove me nuts. Congrats on another great loss and living through Wed through Fri as a single parent! Not easy! :) PS - Once again I can't see a link or click on one or see an inserted pic. No clue why it's doing that to me all of a sudden!

  2. Ah! One year?! That will be so much fun to celebrate :) I also love the idea of cupcakes - They're the perfect sizes for kiddos and it's easier to stop at one... unlike a whole cake where you can cut slice after slice, haha. Maybe that's just me ;) Also, congrats on the loss this week AND for feeling more like yourself today. Hopefully you're back to 100% next week :)
