Project MILF: 3 month update

Saturday marked exactly 3 months since I joined Weight Watchers.
3 months since I decided to make a change.
In these first 90 days I've earned countless 5 pound stars, 5% lost, 10% lost and hit my first 25 pound milestone. My grand total as of Saturday was 34.2 pounds lost.
Can I get a hell yeah?!
Here's a little comparison for you.  Picture 1 is after my first week with 6.6 pounds lost.  Picture 2 is at 20 pounds and the most recent at almost 35 pounds.
I'm wearing clothes that haven't seen the light of day in years and just last week I started wearing my pre-pregnancy bras!  Alleluia!  It's nice to see normal letters of the alphabet in my bra size again!  I'd also like to point out my bust actually sticks out now more than my stomach.  It's like I got boobs again!
The most exciting was buying a dress for an upcoming wedding in size Large.
Yeah I know what you're thinking, most women would throw themselves off a bridge if they had to buy a large, but when just a few months ago you were an XL...sometimes even an XXL...a L is enough to get a happy dance right inside the dressing room!
I've obviously got this eating right thing down.
The working out part...not so much.
Actually not at all.
I hate working out.  Hate.
I can diet and limit my foods until the cows come home, but ask me to step on a treadmill??  No way.
I'd rather die.
The worst part is when I'm continuing to lose weight at such a steady pace without out it, there's not much motivation for me to start.  But I know I have to.
I wanted to make a change for the better, not just eating healthier, but being more active.
So that's my goal for the next 3 months.
Keep up with the good eating....add in some moving.
I bought new batteries for the Wii Fit and I got two new workout DVDs so I have no excuses.
Plus it's staying light out longer and I still want to try the couch to 5K program.
I dropped the ball on running the Color Run here in KC and now it's sold out, but I just saw they added Columbus as a new city in July.  It's tempting.  A trip to my old hometown AND motivation to run a 5K?  Sounds like a win win!
I'm also hoping it will help prevent any dreaded plateaus and help me make my next goal: wedding weight by Jamie's 2nd Birthday.
This means I have about 35 more pounds to lose by August 9.
I'm pretty confident I can do it!  And when I do, maybe I'll bust my dress out of the box for old times sake!

This is SOOO exciting! You go! You've made so much progress so fast!

SG to SP said...

Great job mama! You look awesome! I still have about 6 pounds left to lose to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight which I know doesn't sound like much but they always say those last few pounds are the hardest and I have been more active and watching what I eat and the scale doesn't seem to want to budge. Oh well.

Brown Girl said...

So proud of you lady! You are doing an excellent job! Keep it up

Kristen said...

you look great, way to go! You should def sign up for a 5K. I did a few of them a couple of years ago, and while I wasn't the fastest one out there (not even close!) I still finished and got the biggest sense of pride from them! Keep up the good work!

d.a.r. said...

You look SO SO SO good!! And you are just glowing--you can tell you feel good, too!

Jamie said...

Wow! Congrats! Keep up the good work!

Courtney said...

Couch to 5k is awesome! I did it and it eases you into it so well you are able to build up stamina and not want to
Kill yourself!

jenn said...

Holly said...

Congratulations! You look awesome! :)

Katie @ Loves of Life said...

I just don't even know what to say...just so dang proud of you. You look amazing, the comparison photos really show all the hardwork you put it. I'm amazed! Keep it up. You will be at your 70 in no time. You may find that the second half of the weight will need a bit more exercise to budge, but it will!

dave and jenn said...

Look at you go!

I know what you mean about working out. I HATE it. And I'm also dreading the end of breastfeeding, because it means I'll have to start watching what I eat again. I hate running more than any other form of exercise, but props to you for considering a 5K!

Tiffany said...

You look GREAT! I just joined today... :)

Jordan said...

I'm so behind, but I was trying to catch up on the old blog and couldn't help but comment on your big transformation. You look so great! I'm totally impressed. If you ever need a workout buddy, let me know! I'm at work up by you, so it would be really easy! I can't wait to see you again, so I can see your change in person! Way to go! PS- your baby is totally a kid now! Where did the time go?!

Gwen said...

I am so proud of you!!! You are rocking this!!! It's an amazing feeling when you really start to notice the changes. Keep up the great work!!!
