Skinny Tuesday

I didn't do a Skinny Tuesday post last week because I didn't go to Weight Watchers because on the day I was supposed to weigh-in, my scale was saying I gained weight and I don't like to go when I know I've gained. It doesn't motivate me to do better to go and have gained when I already know I'm going to gain. I did go this past week, though, and I lost 2.6 pounds! That pretty much made up for not going the week before since I usually lose around 1 pound a week. That brought me to 144.2, which meant I met my goal of wanting to get to 145 for our anniversary - yay!

I didn't go to Stroller Strides two days last week because I don't go on Thursdays since I go weigh-in at that time and I didn't go Friday because we were getting ready to go out of town and I was trying to get everything cleaned up and packed. I also didn't get to go yesterday because we were at Toot's 4 month appointment. I'm going out of town Thursday so I will only end up getting to go twice this week, which of course isn't as good as I like to do, but it doesn't seem there is much I can do about it when I am so busy. I just have to do a good job of watching what I eat whenever I don't get to workout as much.

Getting to 144.2 put me 10 pounds away from pre-pregnancy weight (134) and 12 pounds away from getting back to my Lifetime weight at Weight Watchers (132). I have set a new goal of being at my pre-pregnancy weight by my birthday, which is about 10 weeks away. Since I have been losing about 1 pound per week, I hope to be able to achieve that goal. I will have to keep up with watching what I eat and exercising as much as possible.

Hope you had a great week on your journey as well!
