My March Journal

I'll be entering my notes and thoughts on this page--hopefully daily.  I may even go so far as to write down what I'm eating! 
 
Goal Weight:  135  
Goal Pant Size:  10       
Exercise Goal:  Currently, 4 days per week, but working up to 5-6 days per week.
Weigh-In Day:  Friday because I like to splurge a little on the weekends!
Body Type:  Thin/muscular arms & legs, big boobs, fat waist, and no hips.  Kind of like a guy.  I carry my fat in my belly.
Other:  Gonna start out slowly and see how it goes!  I'm also a breastfeeding mom!

Well, it's been a while since I updated this site.  I got discouraged for a little while there.  A friend (the same friend who inspired me to make this site, matter of fact) passed on a link to a different type of diet.  Not a diet actually, but a way to transform your physique.  It's called Physique Transformation and their addy is http://www.physiquetransformation.com.  It's very interesting and you can try their software free for 5 days.  Ultimately, I decided not to do their plan, but I did take some of their suggestions to supplement Weight Watchers.  Here's what I'm doing:
  • Drinking 60 oz. of water every day (plus other fluids).  I have a 30 oz. jug I use.
  • Rotating/varying the amount of points I eat each day.  Day one, I'll eat my maximum.  Day two, I'll eat mid-range.  Day three, I'll eat my minimum.  Then, start all over.  I'm still tweaking this arrangement.
  • Lifting weights to build muscle.  Thinking of buying a Band Flex Home Gym to aid in this.
  • Doing cardio on low-point days to jolt my metabolism.
  • Being HONEST about what and how much I'm eating.  I'm keeping track in a little notebook.  Posting my food on this site got to be too much trouble and wasn't keeping me accountable anyway.
  • Not eating sweets Monday thru Thursday.  Friday is weigh-in day so I gotta reward myself!

I lost 3 lbs. last week.  Granted, most of that was probably water weight, but it's encouraging to see 138 on the scale!  Hoping that doing these things will help get rid of the fluffiness!

Another pound gone!  Lost a quarter inch in the waist and hips too!  Yippee!!
