Week 8 - Good News All Around

Friday, February 19, 2010

So we got approved for the rental last night. Which is good since we had already rented out our house starting March 1 so we were moving some where next week no matter what.

Oh yeah, I lost 0.8lbs. My goal was to be in the 180's on March 1 but I'm 2.6lbs away from that. My measurements are slowing going down but I expect more of a change in that department once I hit the gym.

I'm reading through THE SPARK book slowly but I will finish it. I really like that it is very practical and simple and I think that it is changing the way I view weight loss all over again. In 1997, I went from 214 to 150 and I'm doing it all over again. I ended my pregnancy at 215. It was definitely much easier in '97 then when I was younger, single and not a mother. But I know that I will get there because I want to be a great example for my daughter. Hey, she's trying to eat my food now. My hubby on the other hands like bigger women so he's a little sad that I'm losing it but he wants me to be healthy. Plus I told him that he would see me naked more because I won't be so self conscious.

You know I can't blog without posting a photo of her so you all can gush emoticon

    I cannot believe how big Lillian is getting! I still remember when you first announced you were having a girl!!

    Great job on sticking to your goals. It's nice your hubby is supportive even if it isn't necessarily what he would prefer.

    Lillian is such a cutie!!! So glad that you post photos of her. I love to see how she has changed and grown. I too think that you can make your March goal. I need to set some goals with you. I'm in the 180s but haven't budged. In fact, I gained so I need to do things that you are doing. Maybe a buddy would help me especially since we are both in the same position with newborns/infants. Glad to hear that you have a place to move into.
