Healthy Grocery shopping!

& My weight loss journey begins !
Now that baby is here its time to loose all that baby fat!
I started my weight loss journey today.

I woke up this morning, went to the bathroom.
Before eating or drinking anything I weighed myself.
177 is what the scale told me.
Im only 5 days postpartum so Im not gonna beat myself up :)
Next I figured out how much I need to loose and for me to go down to 135, I would have to loose 42 lbs.
So now that I have my goal weight in mind. I set a weekly goal.
This weeks goal
NO SODA
(Every week there will be a new goal.. baby steps)
So all day Ive been drinking water :)
Next, I cleaned out my fridge, freezer & pantry.
I threw everything that was unhealthy away.
So now my kitchen is pretty much empty "/
Next I made a shopping list. 
Enough food for breakfast, lunch and dinner from 5-19 to 5-26.
(I go grocery shopping weekly)
I meal planned and then made my list with all the ingredients for the meals plus added on snacks and few other things. 
I highly recommend using Sparkpeople.com
Sign up, its free! You can put your current weight in and your goal weight and it gives you how many calories you should be eating daily~ This extremely helped out when I lost weight last time!
You can check out my page and see what Im eating, I will be tracking my food intake there daily!

My weigh ins will be every Thursday.
My last diet was very successful I lost 30 in 3 months! My problem last time is I became obsessed with weighing myself so this time I will put the scale in a closet and only bring it out Thursday! :)
(I weigh myself first thing in the morning right after going to the bathroom)
So below is my shopping list, I like to make healthy meals that actually taste good, if you dont enjoy the food you eat while loosing weight you will not succeed !
So I will be going grocery shopping tomorrow, Im super excited and motivated and hope you are too!
