My 500 & something weigh in but only my second post about it

Okay so I was checking out my weight blogs to make myself sad and to make sure I totally over eat at dinner tonight, which won't be anything new for me cause I'm pretty sure I over eat every night. I'm sad to say I haven't stuck to my goals at all, what's up with that Bahama mama! I'm also sad to say that I started this weight loss journey (for the second time) in November and gave myself 8 months to lose 38 pounds which should be a simple simple thing. But I haven't stayed on track with my weight watcher points or working out at all. I'm all over the place, some weeks I work out, some weeks I eat right, some weeks I do NOTHING.
I'm almost 199 % sure I want to lose this extra weight, but yet I sit and do nothing.

I sat on my bed yesterday (had a few min of alone time) and I looked at my wedding pictures and I just cried. So sad that they would make me cry sad tears but I look so skinny, that's right skinny, me skinny. My oldest was a year and a half and my youngest just a month old and in a months time I got myself down to a beautiful size 7, which yes that's skinny for me (I've always carried extra weight). I know I can lose the weight I did it twice before, three times if you count my freshmen year of high school when I was tired of being a size 13 so I joined the cross country team, soccer, and track team to get a cute little body. What is really keeping me from losing now?? Maybe I will have the answer within the next few weeks, I'm hoping it doesn't take longer then that to figure it out and get myself into better shape.

Here's my November goals and I'm sticking to them (maybe, I'm not changing them just yet, anyway)

weigh in every Monday (and only Monday's)
write down everything I eat and drink (for the first month at least)
drink 64 oz of water everyday
drink an 8 oz glass of water before every meal
don't eat after 7 pm
no soda (only diet)
use less salt (I'm a salt addict)
try not to use my weekly 35 (extra) points
work out 4 days a week for 45 minutes or 180 minutes a week
do 100 sit ups everyday
Lose 38 pounds in 8 months

4 months later and still at 165 pounds, 4 more months to go. I'm sure I can try to lose some of the weight in four months 4-5 pounds a month would be awesome, I am happy that I haven't gained any weight, I will (try) to post every Monday to keep you up dated on my progress.

So we will call Monday's MEASURE ME MONDAY'S I don't actually measure myself but we will be "measuring" my progress, so I thought that would be a cute name for it. If you want to do it with me you can comment your progress or comment and let me know your measuring your progress on your own blog. GOOD LUCK TO YOU AND ME! Eat healthy and smaller meals, and get out and get some exercise.

Mama O..... Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting!

I have my husband and DD looking for money on the ground now too. It has been a fun family game. We laugh about the amount we have now but in December we are hoping to use it for something. Maybe we can find enough to buy our Christmas tree! Wouldn't that be nice!
I love people like your Dad. Tell him to keep throwing money on the ground so people like you and I can find it!!
I too am dieting and struggle my way through it. I have lost 11 pounds in the last month. It is comming off slow but steady. You are actually at my goal weight!! LOL I would love to be as "fat" as you think you are!! I am sure you are beautiful as you are!!

Hey! I have about 90 lbs to lose! I am also posting about my progress on my goals - come check out my blog if you like. I know you can do it...we both can! Also, with the water...I bought 2 32 oz. water bottles and keep them filled in my fridge, I always have one with me, and drink throughout the day, go through both each day and you have your 64 ounces!!

Hey Mama O, I can totally relate to where you're at right now! You can do it!! I do good for a couple days, then horrible for a day or so. But I just get right back on track, and I'm *hoping* that it will pay off soon. I mean, really. I could go on about how depressing it is for me too, but that wouldn't help to lift your spirits!

Get you some 100 calorie packs, FF chocolate pudding with FF cool whip, lots of salads with chicken, avocado & veggies! And Diet soda! :) You can do it!!
