Weigh-in Wednesday a.k.a. Operation Bringing Sexy Back

This week was much better for me... although, after the mess that was last week's "healthy" eating, it could only get better! tee hee hee. It's been a lot easier this week as I've found foods that I enjoy eating, are healthy AND, most importantly, don't make me or Jane gas-y. Previously, I was living off of peanut butter and frozen yogurt - peanuts and dairy being the two biggest culprits of gas from breastmilk! :p Anyways, I've found alternatives to these two favs and now it seems to be going well. Thankfully, although just a pound, I lost weight this week and feel great about it! I really do think I'm getting to that ready-to-do-this phase as opposed to a few weeks ago when I was just feeling like I needed to do this. What is hard - and Jill and I are both struggling with this - is that we are "emotional eaters" and we eat when we're stressed or tired. I've written many emails to Jill about wanting to eat everything in my cupboards because I'm tired! Actually, I'm a bored eater too and have become addicted to sugarless gum in an attempt to keep my mouth busy in other ways. :p

Anyways, Here are my stats this week:
Starting weight: 157 lbs
Current weight: 155 lbs (YIPEE)
Pounds lost: 2 lbs
Pounds to lose: 18 lbs - which seems so much easier than 20!! :p

Jill had a great week too - losing a pound as well! :) According to her research, it's safe for breastfeeding Moms to lose 1-2 lbs per week, so we're right on track. Although her running took a bit of a backseat because of the weather, she ate well most of the week. Jeremiah had his first shots this week and, very typical, was a little unhappy for the few days afterward. Like most of us, Jill said her eating "went to pits" because she was emotional with her little one being upset... we're all alike! It's her week to post pictures, so here they are. We completely realize there is no noticeable difference right now, but eventually we're going to be dramatically hotter Mommas - hotTER being the key term as we're obviously still hot now! ha ha ha! I won't start posting before and after pics together until you can see a difference.

Here are Jill's stats for this week:
Starting weight: 218 lbs
Current weight: 217 lbs
Pounds lost: 1 lb (WOOHOO)
Pounds to lose: 37 lbs

So, we're on track again for this week. Jill has set a goal to lose 2 lbs and I want to take her up on that challenge... although my Mom is in town this weekend and we will likely eat out a bit, I will try to stay within a healthy calorie range (pray for me cause I have no will power). :p

Join us any time you're ready!! Contact me (link on homepage) to let me know you want to start - no "skinny bitches" allowed! ha ha ha. I say this because I had two girlfriends who look like supermodels say they wanted to join us (you know who you are). :p

Jen :)

PS - Gotta go clean bathrooms as Jane is asleep and, like I said, Mom is coming on the weekend... these days it takes me the full week to clean the entire house, a few projects a day during nap-time, and then I have to start all over again.

Good for you!! Our babies are only a week apart and I have 20lbs to lose to pre-preg weight too ... it's really hard to get motivated to workout during my only "down-time" in the day (I also have a 2yr old). Even harder not to eat everything in my house when I'm stressed (I'm also an emotional eater & a bored eater).
I'd love to lose 10lbs by Halloween but the days are just creeping by on me!
