HFTH - Week 3



Well, this week was alright, food-wise. Still not much exercise....knee is better, just stiff and I can't fully bend it, so aerobic exercise is still out. It's weird, because now that I can't exercise, I actually want to. Hmm....

So I was all excited and determined to lose 2 pounds this week....and it didn't happen. I did lose one pound, though, so I'll take it. Down 3 1/2 total. Wow, this is slow going...but I know at Christmas I'll look back and be so glad I did this.

Also - and this is something that made me want to jump up and down - this is the lowest weight I've been at since having Savannah. I am not at my pre-pregnancy weight (wow, that's terrible...she's only three) but it'll come.

So tomorrow we have a birthday party, and I know in advance that they are having pizza - my ultimate downfall - and of course cake. So my bargain with myself is that I can have a limited amount of pizza, but no cake. I'll report back and let y'all know how my willpower holds up.

Short and sweet this week...I am in the middle of doing some Christmas craft projects with Savannah. Have a great weekend!

Jackie ~ Way to go on another lb! Hey, there is no shame in taking a few years to get back to your "old self"!!
Good luck with the pizza and cake tomorrow.....it is SO hard to not indulge, especially when its a party.
Have a fun weekend....

A pound gone - WOO HOO! That's awesome. Good luck at the party - cake would be SO hard for me to resist!

Gretchen said...

So proud of you!!!! Just think of 3.5 pounds of buttah, and you'll be even more proud! Have a great weekend.

Good job! How's your injury? Still keeping you from exercising?

Aspiemom said...

Great work on the 1 lb. and the good eating habits this week.

Pizza and cake is a big temptation! I'd fill up on water before I went! I hope you do well and also have lots of fun.

Keep up the good work and I hope your knee allows you to get back to exercising soon!

slow is good, it will tend to stay off!! Congrats on the 3.5 pounds! That's awesome! I have got to get back on my exercise routine, 2 weeks off and it's hard to start back up!

That sounds like you have a good plan for the party. You are dong WONDERFUL, girl!

Look at you with a million followers! Very impressive, but not surprising - cause you are just the sweetest. :-)

Hooray for losing some weight. Keep up the good work.

OH I'm so jealous (in a girlfriend kinda way, of course!)

You've lost 3 1/2 lbs. AND you're already getting your Christmas crafts done!

Great job, Jackie! Now I gotta get on the BALL!!

Wendi @ Every Day Miracles said...

Good job Jackie! I can't imagine how frustrating it must be to have limitations on exercising right when you are wanting to do it so bad. You show true determination!

I'm interested in what crafting things you are doing with Savannah. :)

Pizza would also be my downfall... we had it last night and I'm already wishing we could have some again tonight!! Congrats on your loss! :)

Good luck at the party - and enjoy that pizza!

Those Christmas crafts sound like fun - I need to start thinking along those lines...

Way to go, Jackie! Slow and steady wins the race, every time. Don't get discouraged -- it's not going slow, that's just the way it works when you're losing weight with the intention of keeping it off! :)
