Week 1: weighing in

OK... so this week has been sooo difficult.. but it has more to do with that since last Wednesday one by the one my family fell victim to a VIOLENT 24 hr flu ~ not pretty! Fluids coming out from both ends! yeesh!

I got sick Wednesday night, I was up every half an hour either vomiting, diarrhea or both! :( After a few days of not being able to keep ANYTHING down.. I did go down in weight.. actually down to 197lbs.. but then once I started eating slowing I leveled out. I was a bit worried because I could tell that being so sick was really affecting my milk supply.. and poor Linden wanted my milk.. but it just wasn't there.

My goal is to loose 2lbs a week.. it actually isn't as hard as I thought it would be to track and really control what I am putting into my mouth ~ don't get me wrong some days are easier than others. I am an emotional eater (I think many of us are).. so when I am having a really bad day with the kids.. that chocolate cake looks better and better ~ and not just ONE piece ~ SEVERAL! But I did it... stuck to it.. and sometimes had a few calories to stare by the end of the day...

Final results:

Tues Jan 26 - 201lbs

yay ... one pound lost.. slowly but surely... but most importantly... slowly.. but HEALTHILY

Lifestyle Change.. yay and 'oh no'! all at the same time!

Alright.. so I'm on a journey... a journey to change my way of eating.. living a more healthy lifestyle.. with of course with the goal to loose weight in the process.

Lets get down to the dirty facts...

Age: 34
Height: 5'5
Weight: 202lbs
Details: 11 weeks postpardom of the birth of my son, stay at home momma of 4 kids 5 years of age and under, LOVER of food! ☺
Goal: loose 2lbs a week.. 52lbs total
Goal Weight: 150lbs

I actually started yesterday, so I will 'blog-in' every Tuesday. I'll update ya'll (and mostly a record for myself) of how the week went, challenges I faced, how difficult it really is.. but mostly to celebrate my small steps of loosing 2lbs.

And so here the journey begins.. to a healthier me.
