Wednesday Weigh In {Week 6}

You may have noticed that there was no Wednesday Weigh In last week {week 5}! Truth be told I was so wrapped up in my blogiversary celebration that I plum forgot all about it. Oopsie :/

However, I'm back in action this week so lets get to it! I hope you'll link up your fitness related posts below!

So, first, let me please ask your forgiveness. Please, please forgive the awful state that my toes/polish are in. Just ignore it, mmkay? Second, my weight has not improved at, there's that.

So, I've made the decision to go back to what works. Let me tell you a little story.

This was me in May 2003, Senior Prom:

I weighed about 150lbs. and I thought I was fat. A few short months later I left for college and I looked like this:

 Don't you judge me for the shirt I'm wearing in this picture. If you've got it, flaunt it. Ahem.

After one year away at college I had gained the freshman 15 30! That whole year I was lazy and eating so so wrong. We had so much food at our fingertips all.the.time. It was ridiculous and most of it was not very healthy. Before I realized it, I looked like this:

I wish I could have found a full body picture, but you can see the weight I gained in my face. It was awful! I literally gained almost 30 pounds in one year.

When I came home for the summer I found out that my mom had been doing Weight Watchers and she'd already lost 30 pounds in just a few months. Plus she said she ate what she wanted and didn't exercise. I was so unhappy with my appearance that I signed up immediately.

This is the first log book I used while I was on weight watchers - it doesn't document my entire journey but it has a good portion of it. During the span of one summer I lost 30 pounds! THIRTY!

In just a short time, I was looking like this again!

I loved this body. I was confident in this body. This is the girl my husband fell in love with and while I"m focusing on my physical appearance, my personality was totally different back then! I was confident and always smiling. I knew that heads would turn when I walked into a room. I felt good about me.

Side note: I'm not being full of myself or saying that I was so gorgeous that everyone just had to stop and look at me but I did get noticed. Now, I feel invisible. 

I'm going back to weight watchers. I'm going back to what worked for me. I have almost twice as much to lose this time around and I don't know if I'll ever look like that again but that's okay.

I just want to feel like me again. 

What have you found that works for you?

  1. Oh I can't wait to watch you through this amazing journey!!! I've already linked-up with the other girls, do you want me to link-up with you too???? I would love to if you're doing your own.

  2. There are alot of different things I have tried over the cross of my entire life. But I can honestly tell you that eating 6 small meals helps me the most. Meals that have food that fuels me. Also working out is a must. I have killed myself in the gym to get to where I want to be, but killing yourself may not be an option. So I recommend not only you eat right but add some kind of activity to your usual routine and change it up. That always works for me. Keep it up!!

  3. I L-O-V-E weight watchers.... It's helped me lose 20-25 pounds (ahem... twice) and I fully intend to join the second I can after I have my baby in April. For me, it's the only thing that works because it allows for "bad days" or snacks that aren't healthy as long as you make up for it. Good luck! I can't wait to read about your progress!
