Weekly Wednesday Weigh-In: 28 Weeks Postpartum

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude. 

-Thomas Jefferson

Starting Weight: 6wk pp: 161# (at BFP weight)
Last Week’s Weight: 158#
Current Weight: 157#

Starting BMI: 24.5
Last Week’s BMI: 24.0
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) or a Size 8, whichever happens first, so I have roughly 15# to go.

2. Discuss what I am going to do to achieve my goals:

Progress on last week’s activities:

*Move my body every day. – Done! Check out my 100 Day Challenge tab!
*Eat healthy snacks. – Did pretty well – lots more fruit for sure.
*Cut back on drinking. – Bit by bit…
*Make a new healthy dinner recipe. – We keep doing lots of grilled kebabs, etc. Headed to the grocery store today to get ingredients for a few new meals.

Activities & goals for this coming week: 
Same as last week – they seem to be getting my mind back on track.
I’m also going to work on using MFP again.

On-going Life Style Goals:
Drink 8oz every time I sit down to nurse Stella or pump (drinking roughly 100oz water/day).
Walk places instead of drive when possible.

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’m super excited about how well The Great 100 Day Challenge is going. I’m 19/19 so far, and I guarantee you that most of those day I would have skipped the workout if not for this challenge. Thanks for the motivation Carlia. 🙂  Feel free to join in if you’d like – it definitely doesn’t have to be fitness related either. For me, the goal of moving my body every day for 100 days is all about making ME a priority every day, even if it’s only for 10 minutes.

Also, I just ordered myself a FitBit. SOOOO excited to use this little bugger!
