So I just stepped on the scale for the first time since I gave birth. I wanted to give myself a few days because of all of the excess water weight. I still have a lot of water weight and swelling to go I think but I was so happy with what I saw. Yes I'm still heavier then I was pre-pregnancy, but I'm only a week out from delivering and have already lost 35 lbs, a lot of which I believe was water. So I'm going to give myself another week to let my body finish doing its own thing, then from that point will be able to set my weight loss goal, and know exactly how much I need/ want to lose. I had lost a great deal of weight before my pregnancy, so I have a long way to go to get back to that point, but I'm so excited! Anyway I made myself a list of goals, with rewards to keep myself motivated once I am actively losing weight again. I need rewards because to be honest I'm lazy, and without something to keep me motivated I will give up...
Goal- 20 lbs
Reward- Getting my hair done
Goal 50lbs *** Half way point***
Reward- Shopping trip to the outlet
Reward- Hair and Massage
Reward- Major shopping trip!
Yes I skipped 60, 70, 80, and 90lbs. But I feel like when I reach the half way point the weight loss will be enough of a reward, and I won't need to motivation to push myself, because by then I'll see the results and want to make it up the other half of this hill.
