friday weight loss check in


the reason i started doing Friday weight loss updates was to really hold myself accountable at the end of each week and stick to my goal. i often post photos so i can see progress made from week to week.

i thought it might be interesting for all of you to see a transformation too…a fairly in shape/athletic woman go from 0-9 months pregnant, and then slowly lose the baby weight.

some of you had some negative things to say last week (many of which i did not even post!) they ranged from me having “body dysmorphia and setting a bad example for my daughter” to me thinking i am “hot stuff” and posting pornography!!

not that i need to explain myself, but i would like to reassure those worried about my weight loss that i have set a goal that is perfectly acceptable for my height and within weight watchers standards. i would also like to get back to a BMI of 22 which is hardly anorexic:
* Underweight = less than 18.5
* Normal weight = 18.5–24.9
* Overweight = 25–29.9
* Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

this is not an unhealthy obsession, rather a priority to stay fit. i want to be healthy and strong so that i can be here a long time for my kids!

so, now that we have this cleared up…

this week i have no weight loss (so 15.5 to go!) i did not get any exercise, so next week i am going to make it a goal to get on the treadmill 3 Xs.

crochet pretty-ness

i stumbled upon this blog the other day, woodwoolstool.blogspot.com. Ingrid Jansen crochets the most beautiful things! the wooden stools with crochet covers are gorgeous. and wouldn’t the handmade blankets and baby hangers make the most wonderful gifts? you can actually purchase all of these items in her online store and her etsy shop.
