Happy Mother's Day

Hello everyone and Happy Mother's Day to all those that are Mamma's out there. Today we had the clan over to our house for Mother's Day. The food was delicious and my Mom, MIL and sister-in-law  received lavender plants as presents. Our weather has been absolutely beautiful around here, we have some lilac's in our backyard that are amazing. The pollen was crazy today yesterday as we were cleaning getting ready for the fam to come over we dusted, right now it doesn't even look like we dusted at all.

Work out hunny bunsAnyway, things are really good I love weight watchers online, I am down 7 lbs now. Seven pounds is the difference between being able to button up the jeans I want and having them fit in a flattering way. I was having a hard time before, I felt like my muffin top was more like a busted can of biscuits, it probably wasn't that bad but that's how I felt. Besides doing ww I have been getting strength training in at body conditioning class, zumba and pilates.

Something that feels strange is that I am eating fruit and still losing weight. The bfc basically says that most fruit is too high in sugar for weight loss. We are also eating yogurt again and loving it go figure. Doing weight watchers feels so natural and it's nice to be able to talk to people about ww and have them know what I am talking about.  Well, I guess that's all for now :)


  1. How nice to have everyone over! Maybe next year, you will be in the Mom club too?
    WW is a great program and I am so glad you are having success with it. I was hoping my daughter would start doing it too. I don't think fruit is going to kill us, and I plan to eat more fresh fruit this summer. I love good grapes. I have never been a yogurt fan so I don't miss that at all.
    The weather has been amazing and I am bummed to see it leave for awhile. Hopefully by next weekend the sunshine will be back.
    Great job on the weight loss! EXCITING:)

  2. Katie, that is wonderful news about the weight loss. Do you find that you still watch your carb grams and sugar grams after doing that for so long?

  3. Congrats on the 7 lb weight loss. That's very exciting and it doesn't matter which plan you used to take it off, just as long as you took it off and it was something you can live with.

  4. Sounds like a nice day for you all yesterday. Great job on the weight. We all have to do what works for us. Have a good day :-)

  5. Congrats on the weight loss Katie! Way to go! That is so funny about the muffin top becoming a busted can of biscuits!

  6. Great job on the 7 lbs!! I did Weight Watchers years (until I got pregnant with one of our children) and loved it. I loved the ideas that I got and I actually lost the weight and got down to goal!

    I agree with you about the fruit and yogurt...I eat fruit every day as well as yogurt and have lost weight pretty much every single week! Keep doing what works for you - so happy for you, Katie! :)

  7. Great job Katie! I have been enjoying eating fruit again, too. I still find I watch my intake, but it's not such a big deal, and I'm happy to not have the guilt. I have also been eating yogurt again and am happy happy happy too! ;)
