9 months off. It must be true. As you can see (at the bottom of my page) I joined Curves back in December. I was doing good. I work out consistently and I could tell I was building muscle. I wasn't losing the weight fast enough for my liking but I knew my eating habits needed to change just a little bit.
You all know I love my Weight Watchers. I did it for years before I was pregnant and used it primarily to maintain my weight and was successful at that. In the middle of February I decided to go back to it. It is easy to follow and I really get to eat the foods I want. No limiting bread, sweets, or other favorites. It teaches you to spend those points on more filling foods (not bread) so you get the most out of them. You end up eating better b/c want to use those points the best way possible.
When I weighed in at Curves in March I didn't notice much a difference yet. After all, it had only been about 2 weeks. But I went in for a weigh and measure today. Changing my eating habits really helped.
I lost 10.5 inches in the past month! And my body fat percentage went from 25% to 22.4% (I love how it tells me this lose equates to 5.46 Body Fat Pounds).
This is why I was able to start wearing my favorite pre-pregnancy jeans earlier in the month. I am so happy with my results so far. I have a little more weight to lose but not much. Honestly, the fact that I can wear my old clothes makes me happy enough. Losing the last bit of weight would just be icing on the (moderately portion piece) of cake. =)
Also, my baby is 9 months old today! He has his check-up next Wednesday and I am excited to see how much he has grown!
