Weigh-In Wednesdays

I NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT! Maybe if I say it three times while clicking my heels, it will actually happen. I used to be really skinny at one point in my life but now not so much. Since I brought my Darling Son into the world, everything has expanded. Now the funny part is that I didn't gain weight when I was carrying him (I was actually underweight thanks to morning sickness that was all-day sickness that turned out to be 9 month sickness (sigh). I just started all the bad eating habits after he was born, working and coming home tired then entertaining and just wanting to be with my little person had me making really bad choices for FH and myself, not him.

This is what I looked like before my Darling Son came along and added to Mommy's happiness and Girth.
(sorry about picture quality)

Do I look anything like that anymore? Nuh uh. Now he's 2 and I seriously can't keep using the poor little man as my excuse anymore. Enough already!

So this is what I decided to do about it. I have a little over 7 months till my wedding. I prefer not to show you what I look like now but I weighed myself and decided that I need to lose 30-35 lbs. Yeah I know, that's a ton but I think I can do it. I bought the "Slim in 6" workout videos and they came via UPS yesterday. In the box were a couple of DVDs, a resistance band, tons of literature to help keep me on track and a sort of progress journal so I can track my workouts. I'm sooooo excited!!! I'll keep you posted when I weigh in a la "Biggest Loser" every wednesday to see how much I've lost each week. So Ladies, TTFN (ta ta for now.


  1. Good luck with it! It takes so much motivation to get started but once you stick to it for a while it becomes easier. I started the buff brides workout 3 weeks ago and am very happy with it so far (and sticking to it!). Will be cheering you on!

  2. Oh thanks, I need all the motivation I can get to wake up at 6am and workout with a 2 year old climbing all over me.


Tell me what you think!
