Weight Update. Holy cow, hold me.

Yea, I realize I posted today. But after the support from a bunch of you all on Twitter, I realized I should do a weight-loss update. Maybe?


I don't know why this is so hard for me. I seriously freaking HATE to put before pictures up. It makes me want to throw up in a my mouth a little. But, I try to remember that I birthed a child. It's okay. Breathe, Katie.

So here's a little recap:

-I've been on Weight Watchers (online) since the 1st week in January (cliche, much?). 
-I've had a 21-pound loss so far since starting that program.
-Here's the quick breakdown because I think I've confused people: I gained 31 pounds when weighed the day before having her. By the time she was 6 or 7 months old,  I'd lost 24 pounds of that just because. I didn't do much of anything, really. When starting this in January, I had about 7 pounds to lose of pregnancy weight PLUS a lot more (and still to go). So, now this puts me at 14 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight. Hope that makes sense :)

So, these before pictures are taken the first week in January, when still carrying 7lbs of the pregnancy weight. The after pictures? From today.

I don't know why this is so hard for me. But, here it goes.

{ignore the pre-pissed off face, obviously, unhappy, yea?}

{this is where I see it most...the side view}

Forgive me while I faint.

  14. This is all since the 1st of the year? That's awesome! You can definitely notice moreso in the side shot, but in the front shot, I notice it most in your arms and waist. You go, girl...that's awesome! I've thought about Weight Watchers, not because I have lots to lose, but because I do have a few pounds to lose, and I'd love to have that "structure". I'm keeping track of calories right now, and it's helpful, but sometimes I feel like I need that extra structure to keep me on track. I'm glad you like it!

  37. You really look great! I'm pregnant with my first and before I got pregnant I was 30lbs over what I wanted to be and was trying to loose the weight before I got pregnant which didnt happen. Now I'm 18lbs more and at 27 weeks in my pregnancy. I'm hoping after my daughter is born I can get down to where I need to be before trying to have another!

    Keep up the good work!

    You may just convince me to try Weight Watchers.

    ReplyDelete
  58. That is so great!!! Congrats, your hard work is paying off!!

    I unfortunately am at a point where even weight watchers is a lost cause for me. I ended up signing up for some extreme weight-loss program that's similar to The Biggest Loser. It starts next month and let me tell you, it's not soon enough!! I can't wait to have before and after pictures to share!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. You go Katie...you look great!!! Sure does feel good to be proud of yourself especially after all the changes your body goes through of having a little one ;-)

  64. Tobeys wedding is on June 10th, and I have been trying to loose weight since January 1st. I have toned up by have not dropped... a lb'ed :( It was frustrating not seeing any numerical weight lost. Seeing your 21 loss in 2 months has really showed me that weight watchers works (thank you for giving me some kind of hope in a program!) and I'm starting the program tomorrow!

    Thanks Katie

  66. Did I comment yet? I opened this at work and gasped but I think I got distracted and had to go. Anyway, even if I already said it, you deserve to hear it again...you look phenomenal.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Yes, I am now just catching up on blogs. Wow, that's awesome! Great job, you look so hot! This is awesome that you took before and after pictures. It really shows the progress. You'll be ready for May all right! I think I will wear a moo-moo... stupid, stupid skin.

    BTW - like the new lay out. :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. i love looking at the real before pictures because they usually have an angry face when they are being taken with the expressed purpose of being a before picture.

    on another note...you look fan freakin tastic. it takes a lot of determination and you are doing amazing.

    keep it up. or off. or down or something witty and fun.
