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. <BR> <em>251</em> Sun, 23 Aug 2009 09:19:14 EST New month and sooo close to goal!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2279055 Can't believe its already August!

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!!! <BR> <BR> <em>244</em> <em>252</em> Fri, 10 Jul 2009 08:15:56 EST moving and grooving http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2213558 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. <em>134</em> Wed, 8 Jul 2009 18:46:08 EST MOTIVATION!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2177418 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. <em>67</em> Wed, 24 Jun 2009 13:13:45 EST
