It’s Time

This weekend I was walking on the sidewalk in front of a stripmall.  I saw my reflection in the store window and determined that my ass needs its own zip code.  Combined with Ebaby’s lovely question I have decided it is time to jump back on the weight loss wagon.  I’m not going to make any “Weight Loss Wednesday” or “Fat Ass Friday” commitments though.  I’m just going to post when I’ve actually lost weight.  Maybe not even then.  Who knows? 


Before I got pregnant my goal was to lose 100 pounds before I turned 40.  At the time that gave me two years.  Totally doable- about one pound a week.  Now?  It’s a year later and I have gained weight.  Is anyone really surprised?  After I had Scoop I was thrilled because I lost all of my baby weight in three weeks.  To be honest, I only gained twenty pounds and had a nine pound four ounce baby and assorted fluids and stuff come out all at once.  It was great!  Then I went on the mental medicine.  And was still depressed.  And gained back all twenty pounds.  Needless to say I feel like crap.  So now I have 120 pound to lose and I will be 39 in August.  One hundred twenty pounds in 60 weeks?  That’s only 2 pounds a week so I supposed I can still do it.  Can you feel the confidence oozing from me? 


I will be breaking out my Weight Watchers At Home kit I got before getting knocked up.  WW seems to work really well for me.  (Though if Jenny Craig wants to send me free meals, I’ll be happy to blog all about it.) 


Wish me luck.  Cause, honey, I’m gonna need it!

  1. Well good luck but you know you won’t need it. You seem to have the determination and motivation so that right there tells me you will reach your goal!!
    Haha love the line “my ass needs it’s own zip code” too funny.
    Your confidence in yourself is all you need so I know you will do it!!!

  2. You can totally do it!
    I know the meds make it a little harder to get rid of (they definitely make it harder for me!) but really they’re worth it. You can’t make a plan to be healthier and to lose pounds when your mind is flying five hundred different directions.
    And if you don’t do it by 40? You’ll be on your way to do it by 41. The important thing is that you’ll be on the right direction.
    And we’ll all be here to cheer you on when you need it. 🙂
    Good Luck!

  3. WW has been the only weight loss program that worked for me. It’s so hard to get in the “diet” mindset, isn’t it. Once you get going, it’s addictive – but I have a hard time finding the motivation to “get going.”

    For instance, as I’m reading your post, I’m eating a bowl of Breyer’s chocolate ice cream.

  4. 120 pounds?! Are you FREAKING KIDDING?! You’ll be a damn twig!

    Can you do it? I absolutely know you can. Will you do it? I have complete faith. Are you going to need our help? You better. Who better than to cheer you on than all of us?!

    I wish you luck, but I don’t think you’ll need it.


  5. Good luck to you! We’re here to cheer you on!

  6. I’m on the journey with you. I’d like my ass to be in the same zipcode as the rest of me too! I’ve been “on the wagon” since 1/1 and only lost 15-16 lbs. but I’m down 2 sizes….trying to say, don’t let the number on the scale define you…be strong and confident and it will all come together.

    Lord, I’d love me some free Jenny Craig.

  7. After I pop this baby out I am joining WW. I think the weigh ins at the meetings will help me.
    I have also blogged about my weight. But people say I am too hard on myself, so you may be too. Not that we’ve met, yet. So I really have no clue what you look like.
    But, we can meet up and go walking after the baby comes. 🙂
