Weekly Wednesday Weigh-In: Starting week 28


It's been about a month since I last did a weigh-in, so I thought it was about time that I posted about where I'm at. I did weigh myself last week, so I'll post that weight as last week's weight, but that was right before surgery. I gained about 8 lbs of water weight from the fluid they left during surgery, but it seems like that has all been absorbed and is now gone.

I have actually lost some weight finally. I skipped 134 and went right from 135 down to 133 last week and now I'm down even further. I finally feel excited to continue to try to lose some weight.

1. Reiterate my goal and where I stand in reference to this goal. (BMI info from this website)

Starting weight: 145        
Last Week's Weight: 133
Current Weight: 132 (-12 lbs total, 8 lbs to goal!!!)   
Goal Weight : 125       

Starting BMI: 26.5
Last Week's BMI: 23.6
Current BMI: 23.4(In the normal range!!)
Goal BMI: 18.5-24.9 or exactly 22.1 for goal weight

2. Discuss what I am going to do to achieve my goals.

Progress on last week's activities:

Nothing, I've been recovering from surgery. We've eaten out about half the meals since surgery due to my inability/unwillingness to cook, but this streak/need has now ended.

Activities for this coming week:

I'm not allowed to work out until next Wednesday, but I think that I will go to yoga Tuesday night as long as I'm feeling up to it.  I've been feeling good so far, so I don't think that extra 12 hours will matter. Until I can work out again, I'm going to be eating very lightly and doing housework to help keep from putting weight back on

3. Post a (reasonably healthy) recipe that I've tried, a cooking tip, a new idea for working out for people to try, a photo update of my weight loss, or anything else I feel like sharing. 

I just wanted to let you all know that now that I've had my surgery and am recovering, my motivation to finish losing this weight is significantly higher. My RE gave us a 40% chance of conceiving naturally between now and October. We're going to make this our best (and cheapest) shot. And I 
want to be my idea weight when starting pregnancy. 
Rather than working out like crazy I've started to really limit my food intake to 3 smallish meals a day with healthy snacks. But I'm going to push real hard to get down to 125, once there we'll see if I feel like going lower or just building muscle at that point, I'm not sure yet.

  1. Yay on the weight loss!!! That's amazing!

    Cheap baby making is always better than the alternative!

  2. Wow, it sounds like you are doing so well!! Good for you! :)

  3. Great job! I'm glad you are feeling better. Just for shits and giggles maybe check out the Wheat Belly diet. I was on it when we got pregnant naturally- I have no idea if that's why but it's worth a shot!!

  4. Good for you for making it a priority to get to your goal weight before pregnancy. It makes everything so much easier, and makes the weight GAIN during pregnancy easier. I'm glad you've recovered so well from the surgery!
