Weight Loss Journey Link Up

A few weeks ago, I actually wrote out a blog schedule.  It looked something like this:
Monday: DIY Project
Tuesday: Favorite Organizational/Get This Damn House Sold Project 
Wednesday: Monthly Favorites/Random Post
Thursday: Weight Loss Update
Friday: Weekly Menu Plan (for following week)

That was the beginning of July, and it's now September--ahhh..where does the time go?  I am so intrigued by so many of your fabulous blogs, and seriously need them in my life to feel creative and inspired! :)  Who are your favorite bloggers?  A few of my favorites are: Dana @Real Life, Real Estate, Real Dana,  Brandy @ Mama Lauglin, Natasha @Hello! Happiness and Kristen @All In My Twenties :)

Recently, I've been following Kristen on her Inspire Me Healthy weight loss challenge, where she is down 12 lbs.  Go- girl!  The link-up is awesome, and although up until now I have only been envious of all of the amazing women who participate, today, I am linking up to get in on the action!!

Today's weight is 162.8 pounds.  I am currently 3 months 2 weeks post partum, and have 12 pounds to get down to my pre-baby weight, and 22 pounds to get where I want to be.   I will be using the Weight Watchers points system that I found here

Are you:
A Nursing Mom*?-----12pts

How Old Are You?
Over 58-------0pts

What do you weigh?
Enter the first two digits of your weight in pounds. For example, if you weigh 175, enter 17. If you weigh less than 100 pounds, enter the first digit of your weight in pounds. i.e. for 98, enter 9. 16

How tall are you?
Under 5'1"----0pts
Over 5'10"----2pts

Do you spend most of your day:
Sitting down?------------------0pts
(e.g. as a receptionist, bus driver, cab driver)
Occasionally sitting, but mainly standing?---2pts
(e.g. sales person, housewife, cook, teacher)
Walking most of the time?-------4pts
(e.g. waiter, mailman)
Doing physically hard work most of the time?---6pts
(e.g. nurse, gardener, construction worker)

The total is your daily points target.

*Nursing moms and young people under 17 should talk with a WW leader before beginning the program.

**If your total is less than 18, your daily points target is 18; if your total is more than 44, your daily points target is 44.

***Retake the quiz as your weight goes down, as you get older or if you change the way you spend you day.

Basically, I get 35 points per day.  Let's do this!!

Excuse the super classy bathroom shots on my super high quality iphone pic. You get the idea.  Ew!


  1. Ahh thanks for the shout out! I am jealous of your motivation ... I need some passed over to me ha. :( I need to start working out majorly. XOXOXO

  2. My mom had great succes on their program. Everyone in the family did because she is the main cook and she was not just cooking for her/us she wanted to teach us how to cook, how to make simple swaps and better choices. Good luck!
