Weekly Weigh-In #23

This day has been a long time coming.

After 1 year, 4 months and 11 days, I finally hit pre-preggo weight.

Actually BELOW pre-preggo weight.

By almost a whole lb.

Which is 1.2 lbs from my last weigh in, 2 weeks ago.

This coming after a week of what I have considered to be "maintenance mode" eating and exercising.

Yes, I ran 9 miles on Sunday, but since then I haven't done anything extreme.

Yoga, elliptical, running - only 2.6 miles logged this week, though, a little more elliptical....

And the eating has been...well, um...

Can I just say, on Monday and Tuesday I thought I was going to chew my arm off.

So my calorie intake has been slightly higher.

But I figured my body needed to recover from the ridiculousness that 9 miles does to you.

No, I didn't ingest a large cow as I may have preferred, but I definitely didn't stick to 20 points as I had intended.

And I kinda figured, what the heck, I'm really in maintenance mode now....

So I upped my Weight Watcher's Points all week.

To 25.

And I still lost.

Scratching my head at that one.

But I totally think it has more to do with contentment.

Kinda like when Charlotte* tried to get pregnant for years but couldn't and then had to adopt and then found out she was pregnant.


Like that.

*Total SATC reference.  Keep up, people.

Congratulations! What an accomplishment. so inspiring. I noticed you mentioned 'points'...have done weight watchers for a while? I'm so intrigued by it. I've got an extra 20 lbs I'm still carrying around and my son is 2.
