First Time Mom and Losing It: Weight Loss Journey: 25 Weeks Down!

Weight Loss Journey: 25 Weeks Down!


Weight: I gained 1 pound for an adjusted total of 55 pounds lost. I am really hoping that this gain is from muscle built now that I am strength training. It is disappointing to see a gain when you have had a good week.

Nutrition: I made healthy choices when I went out and allowed myself to have some popcorn (no butter) and a little bit of chocolate at the movie theater. I had some protein shakes, lots of salads and frozen yogurt when I was out (YUM!)

Exercise: I went to the gym three times this week and even went at night which is unheard of for me! It was actually kind of nice after a day home cleaning and cooking with a toddler to get out and get some me time. The gym was pretty empty and calm. I found an awesome weight training app and used it to do some free weights at home twice and used the weight machines once at the gym. I also continued on with the plank challenge. During the week I did tons of walking and kept my first place spot on my fitbit friends list. As soon as my runner friend took my first place spot I got motivated to go to the gym and get back to first place! :)

Last Weeks Goals:
Go to the gym or do an exercise DVD at least 3 times - GOAL MET
Weight Machines or Toning DVD 3 times - GOAL MET
Continue Plank Challenge - GOAL MET
Make healthy choices when eating out. - 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.
Try Yoga
Track Food and Water.

  6. You are doing a great job on your weight loss. It's ok to gain a few pounds every now and then as our body needs to normalize too.

  7. I wouldn't sweat the weight gain as long as your overall trend is down. You're doing a great job!

  8. That is awesome that you are meeting all your goals. Gaining one pound is really nothing if you are still losing over all. I have been working out a little more this week as well. Great job!

  16. Congratulations. I am sure the small weight gain has to do with muscle vs fat since you are weight training. Since you are doing resistence and weights, maybe stop watching the scale and instead watch your inches.

  18. I used to love going to the gym on off times. I felt more comfortable to "ugly sweat" without judging eyes :)
    Chasing a toddler some days can be more of a work out than getting it at the gym!

  19. It is nice that you are able to stay on track. Good luck with your weight loss journey.

  20. Wow! It's nice that you're really consistent in keeping track of your weight loss goals. How about if you just stayed at home and do exercises instead of going to the gym? Would it make a difference, you think?

  21. it's so good that you are keeping a track of all those things.. even I'm trying to lose weight and I take a selfie per day before leaving for workout, so I can look back and know how much difference did it actually make.. good luck..

  30. You're doing awesome.. I can't make a lot of excuses not to go to the gym, as we have a gym in our spare building in the backyard. It has everything a normal gym does, it's nice to have an escape away from the kids a bit. I like to get in 1hr a day for 5 days a week. After I get that down, I'm doing 2hrs for 5 days a week.

  35. Don't freak out girl because of the 1 kilo weight gain. I think it's from the muscle gain since you're doing a strength training now. Keep it up and don't think of the gain as a big deal.

  36. congrats on such amazing progress, and muscle weighs more than fat so dont stress!
