Everyone Loves A MILF!

I got tired, in a different way. Tired of blaming the "baby weight" for feeling not so pretty. It may or may not have been from having my babies, but it began to be totally irrelivant. I wanted the flab gone and decided to finally do something about it.

I joined Weight Watchers.

The number of points I got was huge. Most people in Weight Watchers get 20 something points and I got in the upper 30's. All for the love of my boobs. (I haven't talked about my boobs enough lately and they are beginning to feel left out.) Seriously though, if you are a nursing mom you get an extra 12 points a day. I have found that those 12 points convert to an extra well balanced meal or supersizing (hehe, adios McDonald's) a portion of something at everymeal. If I can still eat a whole bunch of food and still lose weight, why wasn't I losing weight before Weight Watchers? I even have a Bachelors of Science degree in this stuff. I was in a rut. A huge eat whatever and whenever I wanted rut.

The first day, I was obsessed. I couldn't stop thinking about how bad I wanted to dive into the Tostitos on top of the pantry, or the ice cream in the freezer. I felt miserable. The second day it got easier and I stocked our fridge with fresh fruits and veggies and whole grain rice and couscous . Now I can eat a whole bunch of food, if I just eat the right stuff. I can literally snack all day if I do it wisely. It is not uncommon for me to eat an apple, banana and grapefruit everyday, for snacks. Which, DUH! I should have been doing anyway!

Last Thursday was my first weigh-in and I lost 4.6 lbs. In one week! Tomorrow I weigh-in again. I will keep you posted but I will not reveal my weight like a lot of brave souls do. . .I am a coward like that. Don't worry though, I still am very open about other things like my huge mass milk producing missiles. Or we can talk about the side effects of a high-fiber diet, GAS! Or how my 3 year old walks around the house singing, "Mama's got...hhhhhot farts!" He sings it in the sweetest tone you'd never now he was singing about something so crude. See, I told you I was open.

*FYI - Harper slept decent last night, up only twice and still sleeping at 9:10 am. She is totally healthy so all I can chalk it up to is a growth spurt. And geeze, she's really big already!

How'd you do on week 2????

AnnieM said...

Thanks for all the support girls! Week two weight loss was an even two pounds for a total of 6.6lbs. You know what that means right? 6.6 lbs closer to Milf status.

Have you tried the WW sundae cups? I bought them at the store today for the first time, and they're really good. They're big too, and 2 pts!
