About Me

I'm a 35 year old, happily married, Christian, stay at home mother to four children. I am overweight by about 77 pounds so I decided to do something about it. I'm counting my calories! I created this blog to help others with yummy recepes and ideas on how they can eat healthy as well.

Week 10 weight loss!

Three pounds GONE!  Yay. Okay and to be honest it's probably more like 4-5 and here's why. TMI coming up so DONT READ if you don't want to hear it!  Constipation. Ug. This is part of weight loss. I can eat tons of veggies, fruits, etc. but it still messes with my body. And that stuff is heavy! I told you it was tmi lol.  It never fails, AFTER I weigh myself and eat breakfast I'm able to go. But that's okay... it will count towards next weeks weigh in.  I gave up on counting my inches because I've lost so many more than I even kept track of. It's too hard to figure it out because my body keeps changing rapidly so it's hard to measure. Just know when I started I was in a size 24 pant, now I'm in 16/18.  Yay!  I can't wait till I get to the skinny type 16's because I have a ton of those. Someone a few years ago who shops at H & M, Gap, Express, etc. gave me lots of her 12-16 size clothes. But they run really small so I have to wait.

Thanks for reading!

This weeks weigh in

Well I have to admit it, ever since Thanksgiving I've been having a really hard time not cheating! Even those two weeks I lost 4 pounds each I cheated. That made it almost worse, because of losing that much a week and still cheating, I told myself wow I can cheat and still lose! Um, not okay.  Anyway, no weight loss this week. Totally my fault, same with last week.  So I got my "UMPH" back yesterday and did not cheat! In fact, I ate probably too little calories for breast feeding. I didn't even make it to 1800 which is the least I'm supposed to eat. I did 1768 calories. I couldn't eat any more without feeling stuffed.  So I had to start over mentally yesterday and now I'm back on board. Sorry guys, I feel like I let me and you down! Next week's weigh in I'm gonna kill it though!

Forgot to add, I always peek at the scale the day after my weigh in because it never fails, I lost TWO pounds... it just shows it after my weigh in grrrr... so hey, I can't log it on my weight loss tracker, but I'm now 226!!!!

Weight Loss Results so far (inches lost too)

At this weeks weigh in (Wedsnessdays) I lost only four ounces. Considering how much I snacked over Thanksgiving, even though it was mostly veggies, I'm okay with anything that's not a gain!  To date, I have lost 15 pounds 4 ounces.

Inches lost:

2 1/4" off my waist
1" off my upper arm
1 1/2 off my upper leg
4" off my hips!!!!
Total inches lost: 8 3/4" in 2 months and 15.4 pounds.

I'm happy with these results so far... and I haven't even begun to exersize!
