Bi-Weekly Weigh In: December 10, 2014

Update:  Nolan (our last IVF baby) joined our family in October 2014.  Now that I am back to pre-pregnancy weight and have a little oh so little time on my hands I thought I better focus in again on my health.  

*below updates are updates with new starting weight of pre-pregnancy weight 197 lbs*

Starting BMI:  26 (computed here)
Height:  6'1"
Starting weight: 197 lbs
Goal weight:  180 lbs (for now)

Previous weight: 205 (2013)
Current weight: 197

Last BMI: 26
Current BMI: 26
Goal BMI:  23.7

Pounds Lost: 0
Total Pounds Lost:  0
Pounds until goal: 17

1.  Reiterate my goal(s) and where I stand in reference to this goal.

-  I am starting anew with my goals again.  I have returned/maintained the weight I left off here with but want to keep improving.
-  I will start with calorie intake focus again.  I need to look into calories I need to maintain breastfeeding.  I will also be taking prenatal vitamins to get nutrients needed.
-  I will work on my exercise focus.
-  Put off and put away the junk food and empty calories.  I will eat healthy snacks and add fruits and veggies to this instead of poor food choices after the kids have gone to bed.
-  I want to be healthy and eat healthy so that I can teach my children good habits as well.
-  I want to start yoga or something to keep some semblance of exercise.  Something easy to do indoors and during downtime.

2.  Discuss what I am going to do to achieve my goals.

-  I will be using MyFitnessPal again (ask me for my username if you need a buddy)
-  I will follow up on my thyroid medicine if needed (followed up November 2014).
-  Work towards getting some exercise in each week and then increasing this.
-  I will only eat one refined sugar type sweet/dessert each week (focus in here again)
-  I will do my best to not bring sweets into my home; grocery shop smart
-  I will learn more about portions and portion control
-  Drink more water; drink water when I want to snack; No more soda

3.  Try to motivate others to join in on trying to become more healthy.

-  No known focus here yet besides those who benefit from my better grocery shopping.

4.  Post a (reasonably healthy) recipe that I've tried, a cooking tip, a new idea for working out, a photo update of my weight loss or anything else I feel like sharing.

-  Nothing this time.
