First Time Mom and Losing It: Weight Loss Journey: 24 Weeks Down!

Weight Loss Journey: 24 Weeks Down!


Weight: I lost 1 pound for a total of 56 pounds lost.

Nutrition: I was very mindful of what I ate almost the whole week and followed the Skinny Jane Diet when I was home. I had Red Lobster after we went to LEGOLAND. I had the four course special and shared my soup and dessert with my husband but I could have made a better choice with the entree.

Exercise: I went to the gym two times this week and did 3 Turbo Jam exercise DVDs. On my best day at the gym I did 44 minutes on the ellipitcal, 6 minutes on the arc trainer and a 15 minute hill on the treadmill.

I am super proud to say that I finally came out of my little cardio bubble and tried the weight machines. I was always hesitant because this section of the gym is full of buff guys that look like they know what they are doing. I was nervous that I wouldn't know how to use the machines and get in their way. Since the machines were a lot like the machines I used to use a few years ago I just jumped right in and got a full body workout.

Last Weeks Goals:
  • Go to the Gym Three Times - GOAL MET
  • Strength Training Three Times - GOAL MET
  • Continue Skinny Jane Diet - GOAL MET
  • Keep Track of Water Intake - GOAL MET

This Weeks Goals:
  • Go to the gym or do an exercise DVD at least 3 times. 
  • Weight Machines or Toning DVD 3 times
  • Continue Plank Challenge
  • Make healthy choices when eating out.

  18. Forget the diet - it's scientifically proven that no diet works - any diet is good provided you do the proper exercise to account for it. Just stick to your guns, don't give in and persevere!
