Weight Watchers to the rescue!

Hello all!! I am 9 pounds down since 2/28/12. Yeah Boi! I joined Weightwaters a couple of weeks ago and lost a total of 10 pounds as of Friday. All I can say is that I realize more than ever that this band is a "tool" and not a quick fix.

I joined Weight Watchers because I found that I needed help knowing how good or bad things were that I was eating. The points calculator has saved me tremendously while grocery shopping. I now tend to eat alot of zero point foods like vegies. I see now that I can eat alot of high protein and fiber foods and they end up being very low in points. I am understanding the way food works alot better with WeightWatchers. Since January of 2011 I am down 39 pounds which is still good since I had a baby 5 months ago. As long as I keep losing this weight, I am on track.

I just wanted to give an update.

I'm Baaaaaaack!.....And with a BABY!

It has been an year since I logged on and blogged. Alot has happened in that year.. Umm, I had a BABY! Yes, shortly after my surgery I guess I got pregnant. I hear that its common to become more fertile after losing alot of weight and I am proof that it could happen. NUTZ!! I know. Her name is Quedance (pronounced Cadence) and she is now 3 1/2 months old. March of 2011 I found out I was expecting.. It was a huge shocker! I went in to have my 7 CCs removed. I was a little bummed because I really wanted to lose alot of weight and to become healthier. I had a rough pregnancy, however, because I had pre-eclampsia the last couple months of my pregnancy. I didn't gain much at all, however! I only gained 4 pounds my entire pregnancy. I ended up having to have a C-section 2 weeks before my due date. Boy was she small. She was born at 6 pounds 7 oz. She was so small that she had to wear preemie clothes, She will be a short little girl, she will take after my husbands side of the family. My son on the other hand was born at 10 pounds 2 oz and he was 1 week early, He is a monster. LOL.

Anyway, after about 3 weeks of having my baby I started getting fills again. I looked so great. Then, I got comfortable.. I started eatingalot again..more and more. I gained a whopping 10 pounds AFTER having my baby! Pure nonsense.

As of this past week, I have really focused on eating right and losing weight. I have lost 8 pounds since 1 and a half weeks, AWESOME! I am only half a pound heavier then I was this time last year. Thats not bad at all!

I am back to hopefully get support and encouragment to keep doing better. I hope to hear from some of my old OBH buddies. I miss you guys.
