6 Week Weight Loss Challenge: Week 4 Weigh In

Well despite not working out as much this week as I should have I am still seeing progress in my weight loss. I realized this week that this is the first time I have set out to loose weight post babies and/or breastfeeding. In the past years when I lost weight I was breastfeeding which helped me burn more calories each day. I also normally had the goal to get to my pre-baby weight (so that I could become pregnant again). This time I am loosing weight and getting fit FOR MYSELF! It feels great to know that I took on this challenge for me, not anyone else, and when all is said and done I want to be happy with ME!

Now for my weigh in this week…

My starting weight: 128.4

Today’s weigh in: 122.4

My goal weight: 118

I am down 6 pounds and have 4 more to loose to my goal.

We are nearing the end of the 30 Days Of Healthy Ways Challenge.…this I have really slacked off on this week. I have now completed 23 of 28 days. Not bad but not great either! I had forgotten to pick up a new veggie and new fruit to try when grocery shopping earlier this week PLUS I totally spaced off doing my 100 push ups. As for yesterday, “Reassess and renew your New Year’s resolution and/or fitness goals.”, well I had told myself I would get healthier after the New Year which this challenge has helped me with. My weakness is sweets and carbs so I decided yesterday that I would give myself a goal to cut the amount of carbs and sweets consumed each week over the next 6 weeks. I am hoping that by eating more protein I won’t crave carbs as much as I do so my goal is also to eat more carbs. I plan to replace fruits and nuts with my bad habit sweet cravings.

ALSO my husband and I set a goal to run the San Antonio Rock n’ Roll 1/2 TEAM RELAY Race together in November. I will likely have to do the 8 mile part of the relay so we are going to start training for that. It looks like my oldest son is going to compete in the kid Ing 1 mile race that weekend as well. We are very excited for him and he is going to train with us (on a smaller scale) over the next several months!! So lots of new goals set which I am totally excited about!!

How are you doing on your weight loss? Are you happy with your progress? Did you find yourself slacking or picking up your pace this week??

  1. Great job. My goal is a 5K which seems like a lot too me. I can’t imagine 8 miles! Good for you.

    • My goal last year was a 5k and I ended up doing a 1/2 marathon. I bet you’ll meet your goal and may end up doing more like I did! 😉

  2. Keep up the great work Lori!
