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!!

"Before" photos coming soon!

What? 126? Why do you need to lose any weight at all? That's amazing! Good luck with your goal weight. That will be so exciting, I haven't weighed below 125 since my freshman year of high school. So 115 isn't even in the realm of possible goals for me. Like ever. Sad that your current "need to lose it" weight is my typical goal weight. It's okay. I'll jut live vicariously through you!

Shannon, believe me... 126 pounds does not look the same on me as it does on you. We have different body types, and plus you're a lot taller. I see a lot of women on workout blogs and stuff who weigh more than I do, but they look much, much better.
I look about 5 months pregnant right now. Seriously.

I'm still working on losing the baby weight too. I've already lost a ton of weight in my boobs though, so there's that... I guess...

It's funny, the body parts I wouldn't mind staying a bit bigger are the ones that shrink down to nothing the quickest :)

Shannon said...

Um, no. Sorry. Just saw your before pictures and you do not look 5 months pregnant. At all. You're a babe.
