(Kinda) Happy Dance

I worked extra hard this week. Some days, two workouts a day (no joke) - Stroller Strides AND Shredding. And I've been tracking my food on Weight Watchers. So I was hoping, praying for some movement.

And I got some movement. Just a little. I'm semi-satisfied, but also kind of wondering what exactly I need to do to see some solid results. If I were not still breastfeeding, I'd be considering my old school 1200 calories per day diet. Yes, it sucks - but in the past that's the only thing that has worked for me consistently.

My OB did tell me that some women do not lose their pregnancy weight till after ending breastfeeding. He said it's a small percentage but it does happen. Hmmmm. If I hear one more person say that they didn't even have to diet or work out, that breastfeeding 'melted' away their baby weight, I will seriously crack some heads. Seriously.

So, on to results:

Starting Weight: 182
Last Weeks Weight: 181
This Weeks Weight: 179.6

I heave a sigh of relief as I sink back down into the 170's - this time, I want to stay here!

The workouts have been making me feel SO much better, mentally and physically, so I'm leaning on the belief that if I just keep pushing myself, I'll start to see some more drastic movement.

And if that isn't motivation enough, G has decided to 'help' me work out. I figure an extra 30 pounds of resistance is most likely a good thing!

you will see something if you just keep pushing yourself! if its making you feel better that alone should be enough! :)

Heather -- I understand the frustration, when you work so hard yet seemingly accomplish so little. But 1.5 pounds is great, really! And you're right, if you keep pushing, results will appear. Keep up the great work!

Yeah!! Keep it up! Since you are breast feeding a kid that eats food as well, you might be adding too many WW points. But goodness, 1200 calories? YIKES! Don't go there!

Yay for a budging scale (especially when it goes in the right direction!)
