I did it!!

Shortly after this past Christmas, I came to the realization that I was having a much harder time losing my baby weight after having had Gavin. After Mikayla, it was pretty easy for me (even though I never actually lost all of it, but I was pretty close), but it was definitely harder after Gavin. My mom and I decided to go to Weight Watchers together so we could both start losing weight. They have an excellent program for nursing mothers, which was very important to me. I didn't want my search for a smaller waistline to endanger my milk supply, and thankfully with this program it didn't. I joined at the beginning of February. Today, I became a Lifetime Member of Weight Watchers! That means that I reached my goal weight and maintained it for 6 weeks. I feel so good about what I did. I have to say it is a big feeling of accomplishment to have done this the old-fashioned way without surgery (not that I would have ever considered that), pills or a fad diet.
Our meeting leader, Sissy, has people where a crown during the meeting if they have achieved a big goal. Today, I got to wear the crown. Mikayla thought it was so fun and enjoyed getting to wear it at the end of the meeting. Now, my next goal is tone up the skinnier body that I have!
