"Maybe who I think I'm not is the fit friend. I'm so used to being the fat friend that it is uncomfortable for me to change the "a" to an "i". But when it really comes down to it, maybe "I" should be the focus, pun absolutely intended."

This is it. No really, I'm DONE with the fat girl thing! My husband has put up with me not respecting myself for long enough and he and I both deserve better. Weight has always been a struggle for me, but I maintained it around 160 in high school. After I got married (about 180 lbs) and moved out for the first time I sky rocketed to 240 pounds. I've come back down to 180 and am ready to take that last 40 some pounds off.

My sister is getting married this fall and I'm the MOH, these pictures will be around forever and I am going to be one hawt tamale in them, that's an Amanda guarantee!

My Goals:
*Get to 140 pounds
*Not be self concious
*Fit into uber cute lingerie
*Look awesome at my sister's wedding
*Lose my inner tube
*Be a trophy wife
*Make more time for myself

My Program:
Using a combo of workout dvds, wii fit, running outside with a running partner and SP strength training workouts for my fitness portion.

Using the calorie/nutrients counter on SP to keep myself in a range that is reasonable to still lose weight.

Went "shopping" in my sister's closet instead, money was tight and got WAY more things

155 pounds - Sexy photoshoot (not naked haha)

150 pounds - hubby can't go shopping at his favorite store unless I give him permission (our little deal :P)

    hello there, congrats on having your baby! Best of luck on this journey. It can be pretty difficult but you're not new to this as I can see that you've lost lots of weight prior to having your baby. I'll need tips and encouragment. Good luck!

    I've been working on getting myself back in shape. I didn't have a baby but I had a C-section and they removed a large creature, lol. That's what I use to call it, my baby. A big fat dermoid cyst. They also took my ovary. I was struggling the last year or so so the surgery was way over due.
