The Jiggle Challenge - Week 1

Today is the first day of the "I Jiggle, But Not As Much As I Used To" weight loss challenge hosted by Rachel and Lindsey. I am joining in! As many of you know I have been on a journey to lose the baby weight that I put on with Olivia. I have always been a fan of Weight Watchers. After having Blake I was able to shed 38 pounds following Weight Watchers in about 9 months. I was actually at a lower weight than what I was at when I got pregnant for Blake! I am on a mission to get back down to my lowest weight!! So here goes....


Weight Loss Challenge

I have actually already started on this weight loss journey, so today I will post a re-cap of how I have done so far:


Start date 01.19.2011

Week 1 (01.26.2011): down 3.4 (2.08%)

Week 2 (02.02.2011): up 0.6, down 2.8 total (1.71%)

Week 3 (02.09.2011): down 0.4, down 3.2 total (1.95%)

Week 4 (02.16.2011): down 1.8, down 5 total (3.05%)


Week 5 (02.23.2011): down 0, down 5 total (3.05%)


Week 6 (03.02.2011): down 1.0, down 6 total (3.66%)


Week 7 – no weigh in


Week 8 (03.16.2011): down 3, down 9 total (5.49%)


Week 9 (3.23.2011): up 0.4, down 8.6 total (5.25%)


Week 10 (03.30.2011): down 1.8, down 10.4 total (6.35%)


Week 11 (04.06.2011): down 0, down 10.4 total (6.35%)





As you can see, some weeks have been better than others. I struggle with the same issues that everyone else does. Work full time, two babies, husband to cook for, no time to work out, etc. I HAVE to make this a priority for myself!


I still have 8.4 pounds to lose to get back to my Lifetime Weight Watchers Goal. I am motivated to get back to that goal, because then I am FREE again at Weight Watchers! At one point I was 5-6 pounds below my Lifetime WW goal...so in a dream world I will get back to that....but first I am focusing on these 8.4 pounds!

(That would be another 5.48%)


I am excited about this challenge and think that it will be the boost that I need! That being said, I am leaving for Florida with my family for vacation tomorrow....(excuses, excuses) so dieting is going to be hard....but I am going to give it my best shot each and every week!


Bring on the competition :)

Good Luck!! Just stay active on vacation and you will do well. I work out 6 days a week and seriously freak out when I go on vacation and can't workout. But then I seem to be super active without even trying. Swimming is the best way to stay active on vacation.
