Weekly Wednesday Weigh-In: Week 1

I am borrowing this idea from Michele who got the idea from Josey.

This isn’t a New Years resolution this is just a way for me to jump start my exercise routine and reach my goal weight/BMI.

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

Starting weight: 158
Last Week’s Weight:
Current Weight:158
Goal Weight : 143

Starting BMI: 24.7
Last Week’s BMI:
Current BMI:24.7
Goal BMI: 22.4

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

  1. Start by exercising every day.  Either walking or doing my Yoga DVD.  Chasing a toddler doesn’t count.
  2. Add more veggies to my diet.
  3. Making more meals at home!
I am going to start with those 3 this week.  The last thing I want to do is overwhelm myself.

3. Try to motivate others to join in on trying to lose weight 

I am going to try to get DH to join me.  We can motivate each other :)

Bloggers I follow that are participating:
Josey (of course) @ My Cheap Version of Therapy who is 3 weeks post partum
Gee @ GeeBaby who is relatively new to blogging and could use the support
Michele @ Greetings from Nowhere, NM

4. 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. 

Well, I wanted to find a picture of myself when I was 143 but between computers crashing and FB being stupid I can’t find one I like.  I will check DH’s computer tomorrow to see if I can find on.  When I was at this weight I was on my no wheat, no sugar, no dairy diet.  I felt and looked great minus being depressed about not being pregnant.  This time around it is just for me and my health.

  1. This is great! I was just looking around for places of support online as I try to lose 10 pounds this year. I’m still figuring out what approach I am going to take. Thanks for sharing.
