This is me today. I will try to post pictures pretty regularly, as I see progress.
Notice the belly. It's gotta go. Along with the extra large chest region.
Paige just had to make herself known. Of course. :)

This blog motivated me in the past. See!

This was me 6 weeks after I had Kate  (April 2010)

Ugh. Lovely.

And this was me 9 months later  (January 2011)

It did take a while, but I finally got down to a pretty good weight.

P.S.  I will post current pictures of me tomorrow.

Join me!

I know it's been a long time since I posted on this blog, but I really need to start again. I like to have something/someone to answer to. I just added a goal chart at the top of my blog. In the past, I never posted my actual weight, but oh well. I don't really care any more. Right now I weigh 126 lbs, and my immediate goal is to be around 115. (My ultimate goal would be 110.)  I made the goal of reaching 115 lbs by mid-April, which is 12 weeks away. That's totally do-able.

Halle was born over 8 months ago and I only weigh 2 lbs less than I did when I first weighed myself after having her. That was about 2 weeks postpardum. I have some work to do. It has been much harder to lose the weight this time around, but not because my body is just being stubborn or something. It's all me. I feel much more stressed out with 3 kids than I did with 2, and I am an emotional eater, so stress definitely makes it hard for me to stay on track with my diet. It's been really frustrating. I desperately want to lose this extra weight.

If anyone else out there wants a weight loss partner, I'm here! :)  It really helps to feel like I'm not alone, and to know that other girls struggle with their weight like I do.

I have found that counting calories works really well for me, so I'm going to stick with that. A few weeks ago, I found some little workout videos on youtube that I really like. They are made by the Tone It Up girls. Here is an example:

Wish me luck!  Better yet, join me!!
