Last Week’s Weight: 156.5#
Current Weight: 157# (+.5#)
Starting BMI: 24.5
Last Week’s BMI: 23.8
Current BMI: 23.9
1. Reiterate my goal and where I stand in reference to this goal:
I’m 5’8″ and have a goal weight of 142# (BMI of 21.6), so I have 15# to go.
Like I said last week, I’m thinking that 155-157# is going to be a plateau weight for me (always has been). I’m concentrating on increasing my milk supply right now, so I want to make sure I’m eating nutritious foods and maintaining my weight in that range for the time being. I’m going to keep up with the WWW though, because I know how easy it is to slide back up the scale if I’m not being careful.
2. Discuss what I am going to do to achieve my goals:
Progress on last week’s activities:
Eat a low calorie, healthy salad 5x. — Hm…I think 4x? Honestly, I haven’t been tracking with MFP. My goal this week is to get back into that so I can keep myself more accountable. Thanks for the push, Donor Diva!
Elliptical or stroller walk 3x, ab work 3x. — 2x/2x…a 4 mile walk with Stells, and 30 min on the elliptical. Going to keep aiming for 3x!
Activities & goals for this coming week:
Track my food intake with MFP (Come join me! My name is _Josey_) and not go over my total cals allowed overall for the week.
Work out 3x.
On-going Life Style Goals:
Drink 8oz every time I sit down to nurse Stella or pump (drinking roughly 100oz water/day).
Choose fruit to snack on instead of chocolate.
3. Post a (reasonably healthy) recipe that I’ve tried, a cooking tip, a new idea for working out for people to try, a photo update of my weight loss, or anything else I feel like sharing.

I just took my measurements last night even though I am a third of the way through my exercise program. I always forget to do this and take pics before I start a new program. Hopefully, time will show a difference! Good for you for doing it before!Sounds like you're being a healthy mama, and still sticking with the program.
You're doing great Jos! It's not easy being a working mama and making time for everything else. 🙂
Sounds like you are doing great! How's getting the milk supply up going?
Plateaus suck!! And I cannot believe bathing suits are starting to show up in the stores! Eeek!
Always happy to keep you motivated! You are keeping me motivated with staying on the wagon.
