Week 14

Weigh in was yesterday. Not too much of a change. I expected a bit more of a loss this week but I'm a little bloated. My mom has only lost 2.2 lbs in the 14 weeks so she is thinking she may not do it anymore (Weight Watchers is quite costly), which doesn't really bother me, other than the fact that I wish she were happier with the way she looked. I wish I looked like my mother. I don't think I've weighed what she does since like 8th grade. She weighs now, what I hope to weigh at the end of my journey. 

This week I'm only down 0.2. I'm really hoping next week I'll be down at least 2 lbs. I know it's a high goal to shoot for, but I'd really like to get some of that 2.4 lbs off that I gained last week.

Plus my mom surprised me and bought the items in my Old Navy cart online. I had them sitting there for weeks because the pants were a size lower than what I'd normally wear, as well as all the shirts. Though I don't have a problem with the tops, when I tried the pants on last night they are still a little tight. They are also GREEN for St. Patty's day. I have a few more weeks to get the weight off. So I set myself a mini-goal. We do this a lot at my meetings. For example my goal for Valentine's day was 7 lbs (which I am no where near). But I understand it's good to have something to aim for. So for St. Patrick's day I'm thinking 6 lbs is totally doable and will make those pants a little more comfortable. I'm going to concentrate on cardio, lower abs and thighs so that I don't look so squished in those green jeans. I'm not so sure it's a super slimming color, best not to be busting at the seams. 

Do you guys set mini-goals for yourselves to avoid looking at a sometimes daunting number?

Hope everyone did fantastic! 

Starting Weight: 200.8
Current Weight: 182.6
Total Lost: 18.2
St. Patty's Day goal: 0.2/6


  1. Those jeans are super cute! I love St. Patty's Day and I have been tempted to buy something awesome in green (my favorite color) as a goal piece. I haven't done that before but I need some motivation! Here's to rockin' the green jeans!

    1. You absolutely should. I bought them in hope I would fit into them by that weekend. I know there is obviously a possibility that I won't. But I do know that eventually they WILL fit me. And I know that eventually they WILL be too big on me. It really helping me have something to strive for. Go a head and buy yourself something. You can wear green all summer!

  2. I'm a huge supporter of mini goals, I make new goals each month. I think they are really important, especially when you do have a larger amount of weight to lose.

    Those pants are super cute! :)

    1. Thanks! I thought they were pretty perfect for the holiday. I'm liking this whole mini goals thing. They are much more attainable and I know if I keep meeting those, then I'll eventually make it to goal, without having to focus on such a large number.
