I am happy to report that after a little over 2 months on Weight Watchers, I am 15 pounds lighter and weighing in at 139.8 pounds!!!!!!!!! I know that rounds to 140, but the fact that I saw the 130's on my scale today was just TOO amazing to round up :-) WOOHOO!!!! In celebration of meeting my weight loss goal, I treated myself to a Spicy Italian sub for lunch (you know me and my salami) and my Dad made burgers on the grill for dinner and root beer floats for dessert. I am scared to even add up what my points would have been today, but you know what...it was TOTALLY worth it!! Everything was so freaking delicious!!!! But...I am having a bit of remorse tonight, which my Mom says is a good thing because it means I really have made a lifestyle change :-) I guess I deserve it though, because I was finally able to button my "skinny girl" jeans and wear them in public!!! Even Addie was happy for me :-)
So what now you ask? Well, I still think I am going to try and lose a few more "buffer" pounds. I haven't seen 135 since my wedding and if I could get there again, I might feel a little better about wearing my bathing suit this summer. I am still going tankini style though because even after losing this weight, I still have a little post baby belly. I mean, it did take 9 months for my belly to grow, I should at least give it that much time to shrink back down. So I can deal with the baby belly for now. But what I CAN'T deal with is this damn cellulite!! Sadly, I know that doesn't go away with weight loss so I guess I am just going to have to embrace my new thighs and buy an economy size bottle of Benefit's Jiggle Gel :-)
So after a few more weeks and a few last pounds, I plan to switch to Weight Watchers maintenance plan to help me stay on track. I really enjoy the practice of writing down what I eat because it helps me be accountable for what I am putting in my mouth. Also, I have really grown to like some of the healthier snacks I have been buying. And, now that fresh fruit and veggies will be more affordable with the summer coming, I can keep a lot more of that around the house too.
And speaking of snacks, I wanted to recommend one that I just tried for the first time today and I LOVE them!!! They are called gnu bars...
A very sweet woman got in touch with me last week about her great company and offered to send me a few samples of gnu bars because she said they are great for Weight Watchers (they are packed full of fiber :-) So when my lovely package arrived today...
I couldn't wait to give them a try!! I opened the Banana Nut first (because banana nut is one of my favorite flavors) and it was absolutely DELICIOUS!!!! Seriously...they were better than I thought they would be!! They were chewy and sweet and I could definitely taste the bananas and nuts. It definitely tasted more indulgent than only 2 points, which is what I look for most in a WW snack :-) And to be honest, I really think it curbed my hunger for a while!! Bonus!!!
Oh, and just for the heck of it, I wanted to give it the "toddler test" too. We are a little addicted to fruit snacks around our house and I have been trying to introduce Addie to some different, healthier alternatives here and there. So for the heck of it, I broke her off a piece of my bar and she begged for the rest of it!! Another bonus!! I actually think this would be a great snack for toddlers just starting to eat more table food because they are soft and easy to chew. Not to mention all natural and healthy!!
So now I am addicted to yet another snack, and when my sample box runs out, I know I will be placing an order. If you want to check out all the great flavors they have on their website and take a look at their "Fiberology" section, head on over to gnu foods.
Well friends...that's all I have for this last installment of Weigh-In Wednesdays! Thanks for following me on my weight loss journey!!
