A little weightloss update...

Not too long ago I posted about our weight loss journey. Click here to read all about that.
Just as a reminder, here is where I started.

I can't believe I am actually admitting to this...

On May 24, 2011 I weighed in at 176.5 lb.
Today, October 6, 2011 I weighed 140.0 lb.
Just so you don't have to do the math... that is 36.5 pounds!!
I have also lost 48 inches. 10 of those inches were in the last month since I stopped breastfeeding.
I went from a tight size 16 to now getting into a 7/8. Some 7/8s are tight and some are fine depending on brand of course. I can wear a medium shirt.
So, how far do I have to go? Another 10.5 pounds. Did I mention high school was the last time I was this size?
How am I getting there? Sticking to my menu. Doing some Pilates and 30 day shred from Jillian Michaels. I have done one day of each in the last two weeks. I am not going to beat myself up about only doing one thing a week. Afterall, I have a 9 mo old. I am proud that I even did something.

I don't have any before/after pictures of my whole self yet. I'll save those for the big finale :)
I did get my hair cut yesterday and can share that picture with you along with one about a month before we started with Metabolic Research Center.


Thanks for stopping by. If you are new you can check out my About page to get to know me and the rest of my "Magnificent" crew. 

I have to take a minute and give God some glory. I would not have been able to do this if He had not been my strength. I was seriously addicted to foods and was emotionally eating. I still fall into that from time to time. The great thing is that God loves me how I am (imperfect) and wants to see me grow. As I grow, His glory is magnified. With His power, that is just what I am doing (growing). I don't want my little one's growing up with an unhealthy diet and it is up to me to provide for them. First, I had to get my diet under control.

  1. Wow! Amazing! I am so impressed!!! You're doing great, and you certainly shouldn't be beating yourself up about anything to do with your diet/fitness. You are setting up habits that will serve you well for the rest of your life!


Thank you for your comments, I may not get around to letting you know how much they mean to me but they make my day!
