One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Wednesday Weigh In and a Winner

15 Comments 1703 views

It’s a Bullet List kind of night. Revenge is on and I have to wrap this baby up!

  1. Weigh in is what it is. I’m down from last week and still holding steady since September WHICH is a total win as post-holidays I’m where I was pre-holidays. Check out my weight progress page. I finally updated it. Still down almost 25 pounds since baby #2. I’m about 5 lbs away from my Weight Watchers goal and 10 lbs up from my average pre-pregnancy weight BUT I’m seriously rocking the workouts (today I did spinning for the first time in over 3 years! I weight train 2-3 times a week and I take at least 1 cardio class or long run a week) I feel greeeeat! <– sorry Tony the Tiger just snuck out of me on that one.
  2. That’s It Fruit bars are going to Dina. I used the Pick Giveaway plugin to select the winner. Congrats Dina!
  3. I posted a cute Baby vs. Cat picture for Wordless Wednesday on Baby’s First year. It cracks me up every time I see. Little Bean is completely obsessed with Irish and she’s pretty indifferent about him.
  4. The Kale salad I mentioned yesterday is up on GreenLiteBites. I ate the leftovers today and it was awesome!

That’s about it for me today. Tomorrow I have a Doc appointment and Little Bean will be spending his first day in a home daycare. It’s a test for both of us.

ok, I’m out. It’s Revenge, bed and an early class at the gym!

    I put baby girl in the gym daycare today for an hour for the first time… knowing Im going back to work in two weeks and she will be in daycare 2-3 days a week…uhhhh!

    Congrats on the exercise front! Sometimes its the nonscale victories that need to take center stage sometimes :)

    I just looked at your weight progress page. You’ve done great.

    I hope I can do as well over the next 17 months, as I try to lose 5 pounds a month by age 70.

    Great job Roni! I hope you enjoy class! Off to check out the other links.

    I hope Little Bean loves daycare! We have always used in-home daycares and we currently have one that we LOVE. It is a great feeling to find someone you know will treat your child well!

    I was driving to work today and all of a sudden I thought,
    I haven’t made Roni’s meatballs and sauce in a while! Have to do it soon…they are so good!

    I am new to your blog, but just curious isn’t that a pretty low weight for someone at your height? What is your goal?


    January 19, 2012

    my goal is 149.

    range for medium frame with my height.. 139-153

    But honestly I don’t sweat the details anymore. Check out my story for a bit more about where I’ve come from…

    Thanks for commenting! :)

    Nice Tony the Tiger :) I never got into spinning – I tried it a few times but couldn’t really enjoy it. That being said, I like actual bike riding – just rode my bike across Milan today in 38F weather – brrr! ;)

    OMG…the pictures of Little Bean and the kitty are hilarious!!! I’m also anxious to try your kale recipe. I’ve been a little obsessed with kale lately, and am always on the hunt for new ways to serve it. Have a great Thursday Roni!!!

    5 pounds away from your WW goal is awesome! I am interested in trying your kale salad. I have a tough time figuring out how to work in kale in anything other than juicing.

    Keep up the good work!

    I’m curious if you “eat” your activity points. The old WW points system let you “trade in” your activity points for extra food points for the day. I’ll be honest and say I don’t know what the new WWP plan endorses…I think it’s optional.

    Your exercise schedule is admirable! Your activity points would be through the roof!


    January 20, 2012

    I don’t track them. Never did. Instead I give myself a little leeway. If I’m hungry at the end of the day and ate all my points, I will go over a point or two. I find, for me the best balance is to just use the points as a loose guide. It helps me make lighter meal and snack choices. I try really hard not to get to OCD about it. When I get stuck on the details it always tends to backfire for me.

    Hi Roni what would you say has been your most effective strategy at weight loss? I left a comment on another one of your posts as well. Please email me, I’d love to share your tips and stories on weightlossmother. You’re doing GREAT!

    good luck with the next 5lbs you wish to lose to get to your weight watchers goal weight! If you’d like a tip to increase fat burning – when you do your weights, control the tempo of the lift so it takes you 3 seconds to contract the muscle and 3 seconds to relax the muscle (on the way down). This has shown to triple growth hormone levels – which will speed up fat burning significantly, as opposed to lifting at a normal tempo of approx 1 second up and down. If you try this you will see results very quickly. Great read btw! :)

    Awesome job roni! I’m on my way towards my weight loss goal and I can sympatize with you. It’s tough work but man is it worth it. Keep it up.
