Post Baby Weight Loss Weight Check – Week 1

Welcome to week 1 weight loss weight check. To view my starting measurements click here.

Before we get into the numbers I would like to recap on the past week. In a nutshell, this week was awful. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday were great, I exercised and ate responsibly. The rest of the week was a total wipeout. I ate all around me and barely exercised, it honestly was just awful.

Downfall

On reflection, I feel the downfall came as I did not prepare my food properly. While I did meal plan our dinners, I winged breakfast and lunch. Lunch is my kryptonite. I never eat properly at lunch, I either eat too much and binge on junk or eat too little which results in me picking until dinner.

Exercise

My exercise this week consisted of a homemade circuit training course. I complete squats, lunges, knee raises, jumping jacks, leg raises and crunches to name a few. I only got out for a walk on Tuesday.

Weight check

Let’s get to the weight check. I weighed myself on Monday, April 10, 2017.

Sorry for the awful photo.

Weight Loss Weight check

Last week I weighed 189.2lbs.

That is a weight loss of 2.2 lbs.

Reaction

Honestly, I am very surprised to have such a loss. I expected to gain weight, so I cannot even begin to decipher how/why I lost weight but I’ll take it. Every little helps on this journey.

Looking forward to the week ahead

This forthcoming week, I have assigned meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I need to ensure I stick to the through meal plan I’ve prepared. I have planned to get outside and walk 4 days this week, alongside my homemade circuit course which I’ll complete every day. April 16, is Easter Sunday, I need to step away from the chocolate eggs, have one and move on (this is my new mantra).

Thank you all for your support and good luck with your goals this week.

  1. Girl, you are BRAVE! It takes incredible guts to want to change ourselves, but even more to put it out there and hold ourselves publicly accountable! You are amazing! Be proud of every single little accomplishment. 🙂

    1. Thank you for you comment, I’m so used to oversharing 😉 on my youtube channel. I’m hoping to keep myself publically accountable as you’ve mentioned.

  2. I’ve personally never gone through this but I shared the post with a friend and she said to pass this along. “It’ll get easier as time goes on. Your body won’t stretch back right away, but don’t let this be your downfall. Keep going and doing what you can. “

  3. I think you’re right; meal-planning is key. It’s all the snacking that gets me EVERY time! And it’s now Easter, sigh!

  4. Good stuff mama! I started working out maybe end of feb to now and I went from 180 to 172 (8 lbs in a month and a bit) but I have 3 kids the oldest is 8 and the youngest is 1. Its all in the discipline. You’ll do great! Good luck!

  5. Good for you, keeping yourself accountable! Don’t let a few bad days get you down. You probably did better than you think—just being as determined as you are to lose weight makes you inherently make better choices sometimes. So even if you weren’t perfect, you were still probably better than you would’ve been otherwise, as you can see by your 2 lb loss! Great job!

  6. Congrats!! Keep up the great work. I’ve recently lost 15 pounds and I know you can do it with hard work and dedication.

  7. Congrats on the weight loss! The Easter eggs are definitely tempting. I try to cut myself some slack on holidays and get back in the saddle the next day. Keyword: TRY 😉

    1. Great advice, I actually ended up splitting the Easter eggs into pieces and only eating a small section instead of 4 whole eggs 😂

  8. Keep it up momma! Losing weight and exercise is much harder for me after having kids because I always put them first. I plan to start toning up before summer. I’m six months I was able to drop the weight now I just want to tone. I think I shall join you in your journey!

    1. Thank you Keoshia, it’s hard to remember sometimes. Wouldn’t it be great to wake up one day and you are your ideal weight 😉
