letting go...

Sunday, August 23, 2009

Having Phoebe added to our family has been such a blessing. I have been incredibly graced with the opportunity to stay home with her for 4 months. Time to go back to work and let go of her to someone else. I am emotionally spent just thinking about it. I truly hope it is a smooth transition and both of us survive stronger from it. I would be sincerely disappointed if I were to fall off track with my physical goals because of an emotional unbalance.

    I know how hard it is but from experience my daughters are so independant and I not worry about them being adults. I know it will be hard at first but you can do it. Give your care provider a disposable camera and have her take pictures periodically this also helps with the transition!!

Hang in there!!

Hit a mile stone!!!

Friday, July 10, 2009

I am soooo excited! I have finally hit a mile stone in my weight loss journey! I am currently at the weight I achieved last year before getting pregnant, 163lbs!! This is half way to my goal of 155 lbs by September. More than just the weight I really want to get into a size 10 again. I am in a 12 tight but 14 too loose right now. I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel and am getting more and more excited every day!!!

moving and grooving

Wednesday, July 08, 2009

It's hard to believe that I have been on this "baby fat" weight loss journey for almost three months now. Down 13 lbs but still seems like soooo much more to go. Because of breastfeeding I can only set a goal of 1-2 lbs per week. Sometimes I feel like I am crawling to my goal. I truly hope I am able to make my September goal of a size 12. I just keep having to remind myself its a lifestyle change not a quick fix for my ego. emoticon

motivation to GET MOVING is on the low today... think its just too hot to move! Gotta make it happen... weigh in and measure with the hubby is only a few days away. I need to meet my goal of 1-2 lbs loss for this week if I am to meet my ultimate goal of 155lbs by September. emoticon
