And Another One Down...

Thursday, May 23, 2013

I know I shouldn't weigh myself everyday, and usually I don't, but I woke up feeling extra light and looking somewhat thin. Obviously, I had to check and see if it was just an illusion. I probably don't look any different than I did yesterday, but I did lose another pound! I'm now only one pound away from being 10 pounds down and back to a weight that I haven't seen on the scale in over six months. I remember crying the first time I saw 160 on the scale; at my height (5'7") 160+ technically makes me overweight. But now I can't wait to see it on the scale again.

I'm sure my initial weight loss will be quick and then I won't see change as quickly, that's when I lose motivation and quit. But I'm determined to stick with it this time, I need to do it for health reasons, and also because my husband and I are going to start trying to have a baby in the next year or two. It sounds kind of weird to get into shape just to get chubs from baby weight, but I don't know what I would do if our baby suffered complications just because I'm in such bad shape.

Also, I'm so close to these I can't even stand it!

    After 8 years of giving up on having a baby, I lost 80+ pounds, and BAM! Got pregnant! LOL!
    I have since kept all the baby weight and a little extra, but the payoff of all the hard work was well worth it! Good luck!
