Another Pound Bites the Dust!

Yesterday was weigh in day! I was super nervous because:

 1.) My monthly auntie was visiting (TMI sorry...)
 2.) Sunday night I had a pig out sesh. It included TWO glasses of Pinot Grigio , 2 mini baby bell cheeses, and a big handful of chocolate chips (pathetic I know)!

But besides both of those things I ended up losing ONE POUND. And you know what? I was  am HAPPY. First of all your body retains water weight during your monthly cycle so I may have really lost a little more! Second of all, I am wanting to lose this weight steadily. The faster you lose weight the faster you can gain it back. I do not want that to happen to me. THIRDLY, check out how one pound of FAT looks....

SICKKKK! So pumped!!

I am really trying to stay positive through my whole journey. Yes, I get "jealous" when I see my friends eating cupcakes and sweet things that I really want but I feel much better ten minutes after I don't eat it. Honestly, why is a cupcake so important? It is nothing, it is BAD for you. But why do I want it so much? My cravings are getting much more manageable but it is still hard. Now will I never have a cupcake or a piece of pie or cake again? HELL YES I will! But only once in a while. Weddings, birthday parties and other special events I can treat myself.

Anyway, my goals before next weigh in are:

1) 72 ounces of water per day
2.) Do not eat past 6:30 pm
3.) Keep up my AMAZING work out sessions! :)

I will end with some uberly adorable family pics that we took a week and a half ago:

My two boys are my inspiration for losing weight! 

In total I have lost 8.4 lbs in FOUR weeks. My goal for my first 60 days is 15 pounds. Slow and steady right? 


  1. I hear ya on slow and steady. I've lost just under 10lbs in 4 weeks. I guess its not awful, but definitely slower than I would like ;] Good luck keeping up with you goals, you can do it!

  2. Thanks! Don't worry about slowly losing as long as it is at least a pound a week you are doing AWESOME! 10 in 4 weeks is amazing! :)

  3. I found your blog through Holly @ Where We Can Live Like Jack and Sally. Super cute family pictures. :-)
