Here's the story

My baby just turned 2. October 17th was his birthday and on that day I realized that even though 2 years have passed since I gave birth to him, I still have not lost the 10-15 pounds that I have left to lose. Because he is now 2 I have also lost the excuse for the reason that I have not yet lost those last 10-15 pounds. Yep, if you've had a baby you know the excuse I am talking about. It's the "I've just had a baby" excuse. Now mind you, I have tried to diet. As soon as I stopped breastfeeding I tried all manner of diets. I tried low-carb and it made me so nauceus that I thought I was pregnant again and suffering from morning sickness. I tried working out but I was seriouly having trouble making it to the gym with 3 kids in tow. I tried slimfast, but seriously that stuff is awful! And who wants to drink 2 terrible tasting shakes a day. Not I!

So, here is my plan. I think I can have most of this weight gone before February 1st if I make just a few healthy changes. I am going to make a healthy change once a week. I want to lose this weight for good and to tell you the truth, these fad and crash diets are not working! For week one, which I am started November 5, I am going to eat breakfast everyday. That isn't very hard, but I am notorious for skipping breakfast and I know that can seriously jump-start your metablism for the entire day. I am also going to make sure that I eat within 30 minutes of waking up. I am going to weigh on Monday of every week and I am going to post it here. NO CHEATING! No sneaking a peek at the scale any other day!

So, who's in? Let's start this off right! Breakfast everyday? Thats not a hard change to make. Leave me a comment if you are in and lets support each other on this no diet journey!

OK -- I'll do it, IF: I don't have to post my weight. Like you, I have about 10-15# of post-baby weight to lose too. But since I am 5'7", my number doesn't sound as nice as yours. (And my "baby" is 3, so you've got me on that one too). I already eat breakfast almost every day, so I will make my resolution for this week to eat a high fiber breakfast.

I pretty much suck at dieting. It used to be so much easier. I don't like my aging metabolism. My mind still thinks I'm 25, but my body says -- NOPE.

Yeah Rachael! I'm glad you are joining me! It may just be you and me though, we'll see! Oh and you don't have to post your weight.

I'm in. I'm not posting my weight either, but I WILL post pounds lost. So, here's to breakfast every day this week. I am going to try and drink a V8 with my breakfast. I love that stuff, I just never take the time to drink it.

CM said...

Hooray! We have some participants!

Good for you Rhonda! V8 is awesome! Adding more veggies is going to be one of the weekly goals!

I'm glad you are joining Angel!
