Biggest Loser Blogger Challenge - Week 1

Biggest Loser Blogger Challenge – Week 1

Oh my gosh, I cannot believe that I am about to admit this out in bloggy land BUT I need to be held accountable and I’m hoping this will help me.  I went out and bought a scale over the weekend.  I have not owned one in over 4 years.  Not going to tell lie folks, I do not like the number but at the same time the numbers do not really bother me. What bothers me is how I fit in my clothes.  I REFUSE to buy the next size up instead I hope to not only fit into my current size better but get back into some of those favorite outfits hanging in the dark corners of my closet again.

I told myself not to set any specific total weight loss goals for 2013 but I do hope to be in the middle (ish)of my healthy weight range before the end of the year.  Two kids and 10 years later, I seriously doubt that I will ever have the body I had when I got married but March 1st will be my 10th wedding anniversary and I would really like to be down at least 15 pounds so that I can fit into something cute as we celebrate.  Life is hectic and our schedules are not allowing for any time away from work anywhere near our anniversary but I know that we will go out for a date night and I really am tired of looking frumpy and lumpy in my clothes.

Mondays are CRAZY around here as I try to get myself, my 4 year old and my 21 month old out the door by 6:50 a.m. so I will weigh myself on Sundays and set my post up for Monday.  I have used and been successful with Weight Watchers in the past and without re-enrolling I will be following the WW guidelines and using several work out DVDs that I already own. 

Height:   5’1”
Ideal weight range is 122 - 134.2 lbs. (55.5 - 61 kg.)
Ideal weight range is 106 - 132 lbs
Starting Weight [01/06/13] :175
Current pant size: 12 or 14 depending on the pant

Waist: 35 inches
Hips: 44 3/4 inches
Bust: 35 inches

and the proof is always in the pictures.  These are not the best but I forgot that I was going to post pictures to motivate myself and quickly snapped these in a t-shirt and yoga pants. 

Not a fan of looking pregnant almost 2 years later

 Good luck ladies!  May we all find a place that we are happy with this coming year.

  16. I am excited to be doing the Biggest Loser Blogger : ) I can relate to the scale thing. I haven't owned one in years and don't weigh myself. BUT it's because the number does bother me. I hate not seeing a difference when I know I am doing good. So I go by the way my clothes fit and just try to stay focused on my workouts and diet. I wish you good luck in getting to where you want to be!
