Weigh in Wednesday & SWW

It's been a while since I've update my little ol' blog here regarding my weight loss so I figured I'd link up with Erin and Alex to share!

I joined weight watchers 4 weeks ago and I'm very pleased with my progress this far.

Week 1 - lost 4.2 lbs
Week 2 - lost 3.4 lbs
Week 3 - lost 6.4 lbs
Week 4 - lost 2.8 lbs

These past 4 weeks and including all weight loss since January 1 I've lost a total of 29.6 lbs!

When I had originally started this journey I gave myself a measly goal to lose 30 lbs by my 30th birthday which is in August. I really doubted myself, I didn't think I could do it and I didn't think I'd stick with it but I'm proud to say that just a little over 3 months in and I'm thisclose to my first goal!

....and now for my weekly So What's!

So what if Olivia has been having way too many temper tantrums. I hate it and I'm really struggling to figure out how to stop/prevent them.

So what if I lingered in Olivia's room a bit longer than usual after she fell asleep last night. We had a rough day and I was sad about how she's been acting. Seeing her peaceful little face sound asleep have me a glimpse back to the normal sweet natured Olivia that I'm missing.

So what if we bought a zoo pass for the summer --- and have used it 3 times already this week alone! Well worth the $85 investment.

So what if I'm going to miss my husband this weekend. He's going to a men's conference for church and will be away for 2 days.

So what if I'm worried I didn't lose any weight this week. PMS and weight watchers don't mix.

That's all I've got today - head over to Erin and Alex's blog to link up for Weigh in Wednesday

...and check out Shannon's blog for So What Wednesday!

I'm with you on the tantrums. How do you handle them? This has been the week of hell for us, and our little man is just getting started.

And I love watching him sleep, too, because he's not crying at me and biting me. No, he's just peacefully sleeping with his butt in the air and it makes me happy.

And whoa! on the weight loss! That's awesome! Congrats!

No, PMS wins every time. I ate an entire caramel bunny that I had from Easter for dinner last night. And I can honestly say I won't do it again, because it gave me the worst acid reflux. Who knew chocolate would do that to me?!
