The Road To A Better Me—Week 1

Well, today marked the end of the first week of my journey down the road to a better me.

I think it went rather well. I actually stayed a bit under my calorie allotment for most days, so I am proud of that. I have been rocking the Ab Ripper X workout (from P90X) with the hubs plus I am doing some cardio. I am hoping that with all three of these things combined, I will start to see some serious results.

Now, before I get to the nitty-gritty, I should state that my scale is a super cheap scale. It only rounds to the half pound so all of my weights will either be to the whole pound or half pound. I don't like it because its not too accurate, but it's all I have for now. Hopefully it won't make too much of a different and the pounds will fall off either way. :oP

Okay, here are the numbers:

Post Pregnancy Weight (April 2011)—156

Starting Weight (Day 1-8.9.11)—153.5

Current Weight (Week 1-8.26.11)—152

What!? I lost a pound and a half (according to my cheap pound/half pound scale)? Yeah, I am pretty stoked! I am inching closer to the 140's and I am so happy about that. I cannot wait to say goodbye to the 150's! I am 16 pounds away from my first goal of 136.

So, YAY! What I am doing seems to be working. This makes me excited to continue on to see what next weeks progress will be. :o)

  1. Also, pay attention to how your clothes fit. They may start to got.better before you see huge loss in pounds. Since your exercising.

  2. Go Jennifer! We're in a very similar range. I am currently ONE pound away from my pre-baby weight (159) but I'd like to get down into the 120s (I'm 5'0"). Keep up the good work!
