Jenni's Video Blog - Starting My Journey

So for those in the dark, I've been trying to shed some post pregnancy pounds for the past 2 and 1/2 months with very little success. I will do good for a week...and then gain it back. And the cycle happens a lot.

Part of it is this time of year! I love, love, LOVE to bake around the holidays. And Will can tell how small my self control is when there are goodies in the house.

I might be doing great at working out every day so far, but controlling my cravings for anything pumpkin flavored this time of year? Nah...hasn't happened so much.

So I've been trying to find a way to keep myself motivated and accountable. I've been logging my calories on loseit.com for the past month and a half, but the excitement about that site has started to wear itself thin. I've looked into plenty of other websites from Jillian Michaels, Weight Watchers, to The Biggest Loser Club. It's not that I'm looking for a diet, but I'm just looking for a support group. I don't want to do this alone, because alone, I tend to fall off the wagon.

Well yesterday I found myself on faintstarlite's blog and reading about her successful weight loss journey on WW, and thoroughly enjoyed watching her vlog (video blog) about her journey. She did weekly weigh-ins and vlogged about them.

I couldn't stop thinking about her brilliant idea. All night long I thought about it, and then this morning I thought about it. And I knew that this is what I needed to do. It would keep me accountable, it would help me be able to see myself on camera to remember WHY I need to do this and it would also allow me to go back and see my progress.

So without further adieu, here is my first post, or "VLOG", on my weight loss journey. I'll be doing this weekly.
