More motivated than ever!!!

Friday, December 17, 2010

So today was day 6 level 3 of 30 Day Shred - 4 more days to go and boy am I ever seeing results!! Sparkpeople + Jillian Michaels = success!!! Today was weigh - day and I have lost another 2 lbs bringing me into the 120's :) I have not been in the 120's for many, many years and cannot believe at this stage of my life I am actually there but I put the work in so I feel accomplished.

The biggest obstacle to achieving this goal for me was the nutrition part of the equation but since I joined and started following her meal plans I feel like I have found the solution. Eating clean is sooo important!! I truly believe that now. I have started cooking my meals at home using the delicious and nutritious recipes that I get from Jillian - one website she likes for recipes is called and I highly recommend it as a fantastic resource for healthy meals.

This week I am inspired by one of my Sparkfriends to take pics of my progress, I feel that I am definitely getting shredded!

Thanks for reading!!

So I am pretty excited, as today was weigh day and I have lost another 2.5 lbs, bringing me to a total weight loss of 20 lbs since I started with SparkPeople a short 3 and a half Months ago :)
I LOVE this site! I have never Bloged before ( It's my new found confidence ) but I wanted to share my achievement with everyone because you guys helped me make it happen. I finally found a team that I love, and they have made me feel so welcome!
The reason I started this journey was to lose the excess weight from having a baby 7 months ago, which was not coming off even with my regular diet and exercise plan. 3 and a half months after the baby was born I was still at the same weight I was at when he was two weeks old! Frustrated, I decided to join SparkPeople. The food tracking is what made a big difference for me, along with changing up my exercise regime to include Circuit Training ( Jillian Micheals I love you )
I have surpassed my initial goal and only have 6.5 lbs to go to reach my revised goal!!! WHOO HOO!!
It's not just the weight loss though...I have gained SOO much more than that! I am stronger than I have ever been in my entire life, which makes caring for my baby boy so much easier - My mind is sharper too!
I want to wish everyone a fantastic weekend :)...Tomorrow is my staff Christmas Party, and I am looking forward to showing up looking fab in my new outfit!
Below is a link to my most recent photo :) I hope to get an updated one soon as I have lost a few more lbs since this was taken!

Thanks for taking the time to read!
