Well, I’ve had baby number 3 and after about 2 weeks of stuffing myself with all the brie, salami & soft serve I possibly could, I’ve reactivated my Weight Watchers membership and am back to making smart, healthy choices for myself again.
And I needed it! I don’t think I can actually take any more brie and salami (soft serve is another story!).
Pregnancy does such strange things to my eating habits. Through out the whole 9 months there was only a period of a few weeks where I actually felt like eating good, healthy food. On this side of the pregnancy it’s so good to feel normal again! It’s so good to eat the fruit and vegetables that make me feel my best.
I’m part way through my third week since I reactivated my Weight Watchers membership. It took a little bit to get back into the swing of things. And as I’m breastfeeding and the little one is only 4 weeks old, for the first two weeks I did find it more difficult to eat within my daily allowance and not splash into my weekly spontaneity points. This week is much easier though and admittedly I am much better prepared with my cupboards and fridge stocked with the best options that I know work for me.
So my goal is to lose about 18kg in total.
Last year I lost 16kg before getting pregnant again, so I know I can get 18 off this time around and I’m looking forward to it.
My first goal is my 5% (79kg) and after only 2 weeks I’m almost there already.
I’m interested to see if the weight comes off slower or faster this time around.
Starting weight: 83.2kg
Overall goal weight: 65kg
Current weight: 80.8kg
