BTW it's day 140

a small drop.

weight:  230.2 lbs

Weight after giving birth to Baby Girl:  286 lbs
Weight at start of weight loss journey:  278 lbs on July 23, 2010

Weight lost since having Baby Girl:  55.8 lbs
Weight lost since July 23, 2010:  47.8 lbs

Weight one week ago: 232.6 lbs

I know if I am building muscle that weight drops can lessen and I know that I often don't see drops after workouts that focus more on core and strength training.

I need to get back into more regular cardio though too.

I was for awhile but sometimes it just, frankly, gets boring being on the squeaky elliptical.  I can't hear the TV over it and, invariably, Baby Girl fusses as soon as I start and Hubs doesn't have the capacity to soothe her as quickly as I do and if she's fussy and he has her, I can't concentrate and I don't finish my cardio.

Sometimes I think it might be easier if I had a gym membership but at the same time -- then I think it would be hard to get out the damn door since the closest gym does not have child care.

I guess I'm just feeling a little out of sorts today...

Grr Arrgh!


  1. A small drop is better than no drop! Keep up the good work.

    If you'd like to link your post on my blog hop this week, we'd love to have you!

  2. OK, I joined - I think I did it right :>

  3. Great Job on your weight loss since July!! You're definitely on the right track!

    I totally understand feeling out of sorts, it's hard to juggle being a mom and taking time for yourself!

  4. FAN-BLOODY-TASTIC- this is really so good. You have worked so hard and that is a an excellent figure on the scales

    Go go go you!!


  5. congrats, that's great. I used to hate hate hate cardio and now I try to only read during my cardio so it's my little bribe
