I feel skinny, oh so skinny

I lost 6 pounds this week at weigh in, which brings my total since rejoining to 12.4!  This is the most I've lost in one week since I very first joined almost 3 years ago.  I had a 1.2 gain last week and didn't weigh in the week before, so really, if you spread it over the three weeks, it's a 2 pound loss per week, which is probably more accurate than 6 pounds in one week.  I am only 0.6 away from my 5%.  My clothes are noticably looser and my face seems thinner when I look in the mirror.  I…See More

Goal update: I'm doing a lot better on tracking more honestly, but I'm still struggling with water.  I should go get myself a glass while I'm thinking about it.  I got a good workout chasing the toddler around an indoor play place this morning.  She gets "stuck" climbing on some of the things there that are not in the specified toddler zone.  Part of me wishes she were more independent and then I'd get to talk more with friends, but then I'd miss her cute giggles and smiles and I wouldn't get…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
Welcome to my blog! The name of my blog "I'm a Pickle" comes from one of my early WW meetings when I first joined. My leader said that loosing weight is like turning a cucumber into a pickle--it's a process. It takes the right ingredients (like eating wisely and moving more along with all the WW tools) and time. You don't turn a cucumber into a pickle overnight. Moreover, you can't turn a pickle back into a cucumber! The change is permanent. So, once I was a cucumber. Now I'm in the process of becoming a pickle and there's no turning back!

I am a 31 year old living in a suburb of Atlanta. I've been married for four years to my adorable husband. I lost 55 pounds before becoming pregnant with my precious daughter. I gained WAY too much during pregnancy, but what's done is done. I'm back to WW and already loosing. Blogging has really helped me stay focused and get out all those emotions connected with food and trying to loose weight. This is a fabulous community of people who are both inspiring and encouraging.

I tend to lose slowly, hence the turtle tracker. I also used to have a pet turtle back when I taught second grade (we made it race another teacher's pet rabbit at recess one day--what fun!) The rabbit won, though...

Ugh! Gained this week!

Posted on February 23, 2011 at 12:37pm 1 Comment

I gained this week.  :(  If I'm honest after not tracking most of last week and being not too accurate with tracking this week, I should have expected it.  I really need to track better.  I want to get an iphone because the WW app is so much better than the blackberry app and that might help with my tracking so it will be more real-time rather than trying to remember once I sit down to track on my computer a few times per day.

 

Another goal to work on this week is drinking…

My last post was July of 2009--wow!  I updated my profile pic with a pic of my daughter since I'm usually the one behind the camera.  Even though it's from October, it's certainly more recent than the previous one in which she was only 3 months old!  She is almost 2 now and I still haven't lost the baby weight.  I guess you really can't call it baby weight anymore...I really want to get back to my pre-baby weight before we add a sibling to the family and next time I will NOT gain 60…

Peanut Butter

Posted on July 23, 2009 at 4:00pm 0 Comments

I had a small loss this week, but I figure at least it's in the right direction. I think there is a direct correlation to the amount of Edy's Loaded Peanut Butter Cup ice cream I eat, regardless of whether I have the points for it, and how much weight I lose. I guess I'll have to start limiting my consumption.



Speaking of peanut butter (my favorite food)...I discovered a peanut butter that is only 3 points for 2 Tbsp. It is called Naturally More and also has flax seeds and other… Continue

Congrats on your success girl! You are doing fabulous! Look forward to following your progress! Also..I've been to Atlanta a few time for work and loved it! (at the time, I worked for ING...and they had a pretty big office there). Hope you have a great weekend!

Hey Michelly...about the weight loss ticker. In the middle section called SETUP, there is a radio button section that asks you if you want to Track your weight by weight change...weight or waist. I have Weight selected. See if that helps? Because then you'll put in your Target weight...and your current weight etc.

Not a problem. Adding pictures is really pretty simple! Good luck!

Love your new kitchen! I'm in the process of deciding on countertops/back splash and flooring. I "want" granite, but don't want to pay for it! lol I am getting a bid on formica that "looks" like granite next week. Arrggg...maybe I should get a bid on real granite too...?? Decisions decisions
