Saturday Weigh In: 205


This picture was taken the night hubby asked if I had gained weight.  Granted I did gain 3 lbs, but this top makes me look bigger.  It is my maternity top.  I love this blousy top and it makes me look . . . well, preggers.  Despite this fact, I confessed to him that the excess of Lattes and fruit juices caused this to happen. 

This week, I cut the fruit juices and no more small, decaf, soy lattes with 7 sugars . . . and the chocolate muffin or chocolate chip coffee cake that is such a great compliment to the coffee.  I also packed my lunches or purchased sushi or salads from the local supermarket, and made sure to eat fruit for snacks.  I still have to make plans to add more veggies.  And I went from 208, down to 205 this week.  I am hoping to continue this pattern because I hope to break the 200s in February.  That would be such a great accomplishment. 

This first week in February, I have to train for the second 5K in 2010.  I am going to organize the four season room for my gym.  With 3 kids, a full time job outside of the home, and a hubby who travels, I don't have the money or ability to go to a private gym.  I have the treadmill in there and a TV with DVD player.  I was using that room before the dog had to be segregated there. I didn't want to intrude in her space.  I am excited to make a space of my own where I can store all the things that I need to make weightloss happen.


  1. You are doing so great! Keep up the work! I know what you mean about the room to yourself. We have a small extra room in the house that I finally talked my boyfriend into making our workout room. We have a dvd player, vcr, wii and some free weights, mats etc. I love this room! I love closing the door and keeping the dogs and little guy out of my hair while I go to it.

    Also thanks for this blog. Because of you I have decided to try for a 5K run. I have registered, bought the shoes and some books and hope to run my first May 30. I am going to link to you in my Blog about it and hope you don't mind.

  2. Good for you Rosa. A 3 pound loss is wonderful! You are making some good changes. Staying away from cake is a good idea. Have you tried VitaTop muffin tops? They are 100 calories and packed with fiber, making it a wise choice to fill that chocolate need.

    Having your own workout station is also a great idea. Close the door and let the kids know this room is off limits while you are exercising. Keep up the great work!

  3. Awesome! You knew what caused the gain and were able to... "correct" it (for lack of a better term) - that's great. :)
