So I’m back on My Fitness Pal. Two years ago I was able to lose 20# by eating right (which I kept on track by using MFP) and by moving my body. It’s rocket science, right?
At 6w postpartum last January, I had lost 25# and was back down to 161# (my BFP weight), though obviously I had some toning to do. I got down to 155# (and was feeling pretty great)…and then slowly have let my weight creep back up over the past year. My damn scale sucks and gives me readings all over the board anymore, but I’m thinking I weigh around 163# right now. GAH!
My little sister’s wedding is on February 2nd (Groundhog Day!), which is only 7 1/2 weeks away. Normally I keep my weight loss goals to 1# per week, but since I’m no longer freaked about affecting my milk supply, and I really want to feel better about myself by the time I’m in all of those pictures at the wedding, I’ve set my MFP thingy to 1.5#/week, which would get me to roughly 152# by the time of her wedding – officially my lowest weight of my adult life (which I also reached back in May of 2010) and a weight I feel really good and healthy at – especially if I’m toned at that weight.
*Side note – remember that I’m 5’8″ and a medium build. 152# is a nice, healthy weight for me that I know I look and feel good at, and it’s not too difficult to maintain with a healthy lifestyle.
I pulled out my workout “schedule” from 2009, and holy shit – I had so much time to work out. I did between 30-90 minute workouts 6 days per week, and snowboarding on Saturdays. HA. That’s not exactly realistic now, but I did want to create a modified workout calendar to get me motivated again. It has to be realistic based on days I’m at work (Mon/Tues/Thurs/Fri), family coming into town for Christmas, etc…but I think the schedule below is one I can stick to. As I see how it’s all going, I’ll work on January’s calendar as well and post that on the 1st of the year I guess.
