Kept my cheat day and lost 3 lbs!

::does a little jig::

I'm so excited! I lost 3 lbs. last week! I did cheat 2 days, instead of 1, but hey, it was the weekend. After the week I had with the nighttime fussiness lasting 2-3 hours every night, can you blame me?

I stuck to my diet through the week though, but I didn't really get any exercise in. Unless you call running around with a 2 month old exercise...and I do. I honestly think carrying her around in the Moby is helping. My God, she weighs 11 lbs. now! How could it not be helping, right?

In other news, I am now addicted to Diet Dr. Pepper. No, seriously. We bought a 12 pack on Saturday and it was gone last night! Yes, Brian helped me polish it off, but the majority of consumption was by me. Shameful, I know. It's better than regular Dr. Pepper though, so at least give me credit for that.

So 3 lbs. down, 7 more to go before Hawaii. I'd really like to lose 13 more though. That would put me at 145. I haven't been 145 since I was 17 years old! Oh, to have that body again. Free of stretch marks and a flabby tummy. With 3 lbs. down though, I'm well on my way.

Can I pull it off? Tune in next week to find out.

Current stats and goals:

Current weight: 158
Goal weight: 145
Weight loss goal this week: 2 lbs.


  1. The Moby is amazing, I swear. My back looks 1000 times better since birth already!

    & sometimes, I think those cheat meals help lose weight! Don't ask how, but I notice that when I do 1-2 non-Nutrisystem meals per week, I lose more!

  2. Hi there! I just found your blog on Top Baby Blogs and pretty much love it- so I am going to follow if that is alright by you!

    Reading some of your entries, I feel like we are living very similar experiences.. or maybe just have a similar outlook. Not sure yet, but I've enjoyed reading and found myself saying, "Oh, my gosh.. YES!" Ha, ha!

  3. Hey!! I second the Moby! It saved my life. I'm not even lying. Not even a little bit.

    And I think the cheat days help boost weight loss because they temporarily jumpstart your metabolism and make it work a little harder. That's what I tell myself at least!

    Congrats on your weight loss!

  4. Thanks ladies! :)

    I definitely think those cheat days help. If you don't have them, you'll go crazy and eat everything in sight!

  5. Cheat days are awesome :) My vice is Diet Mountain Dew-- it's awesome. Diet Dr. Pepper is great too though--it tastes the same as the original without all the sugar!

    Congrats on the 3 lbs lost! Woot!

  6. Well perhaps I need a cheat day myself! (Check out my lack of success at my blog.)

  7. Congrats on your 3 lbs!!!!

    Keep it up. :)
