Baby weight

I decided to start Weight Watchers last week. I came to this decision because I still have 10, count 'em 10, pounds to go before I hit pre-pregnancy weight. Before that I was still about 15 pounds too heavy for my frame and size. I want to lose that 25 pounds before I get pregnant again and start the roller coaster all over. People keep saying, "Won't you be depressed to gain all that weight right back while you are pregnant?" But I will know I started in a good place that is healthier for me and the baby. Plus I will be closer to a healthy weight when I have to lose it yet again. So send me your words of encouragement! I weigh-in Tuesday nights and will keep you posted on my progress (not my actual weight, just my progress).

PS I love reading all of my friends' new blogs!

Good luck! I am supposed to be working on the baby weight I gained after Ella (4 months ago). I have about 20 lbs I'd like to shed.

Haha... I started WW last week too! I told myself that I'd start it once Belle was 6 months old. So far I'm sticking to it. I've got about 25 lbs to go too (well... maybe 30). Maybe we should start a club. :)

Honestly Angelle... I can't believe you're planning to lose 25 lbs! You seriously look great already! Good luck though!

Good luck Angelle!!! I joined eDiets yesterday and planned on starting today, but I never made it to the grocery store. Heh, a great start to my diet :) I think Keri has a good idea, I'd join the club!

Good luck! I LOVED Weight Watchers when I did it before. I like that you can choose to eat Anything...just in moderations. If you like to eat out, look at this site. It has all the points for most major restraunts! http://www.dwlz.com/restaurants.html

I'm up for the club too! I've been excersing too. I'm going to do a 5K in November so I'm trying to get in good shape and lose weight.

Good luck! I can't wait to hear how you are doing.

Good luck, Angelle, and all the other ladies starting their diets! And good luck, Christina, on your 5k! I'm competing in a triathlon on October 1st. I'm the slowest person EVER to compete, I'm sure, but I don't care. It's gotten me off the couch and doing something active! :)
