Hi, I am 32, a mother of 5 ( 3 girls 2 boys not in that order ) I really am taking weight loss serious this time around. I took a semester off of Nursing School and gained an additional 20 pounds just since December. I am looking to lose at least 100 pounds, I am aiming for 110 but if I get to 90 it will be ok too. I cut out sodas and tea 4+ weeks ago. I lived for Dr Pepper, drinking 4-6 cans a day. I also started cutting calories and eating less white/starchy foods.

Haven't walked or rode bike due to some scheduling issues. But I have temporarily replaced it with HIIT... between C25K ...Turbo Jam..and Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. And boy oh boy can I feel it. I know my biggest accomplishments at this point is cutting soda...a whole freaking month. I quit smoking over 10 years ago...pretty much the same way. I only noticed the 1st week due to headaches..then after that...my energy boost came from within ! How about that? Anyhow... I still have to get a scale...but I know I've lost between 2-4 lbs and about as many inches between my arms, waist, and hips. I hated the first day..because I felt foolish, my 2 sons joined me today (12 & 8) and my 12 year old realized how intense it is...And that I am serious. I think once I get the routine and steps down.. I will be able to focus more ..it is easier today then yesterday. . Determination. ..Motivation. ..inspiration. ..and you got it....Perspiration. I've never sweat so much in my life...including labor and delivery haha.

Be back in a few weeks ... to update ..and blog. If it doesn't challenge you...it won't change you.
