Weigh in Wednesdays

The two of us together in the second picture weigh 80 LESS than the picture of me eight months pregnant!

Ok neither of these pictures are flattering but what I like is looking at the difference in my legs!

Arg...I am begrudgingly writing this post. I have been putting off my 'weigh in Wednesdays' because I have NO good news to report! And today is no different! My last report of an actual weight loss was back in October when I got to 161 which made a total of 100 pounds lost! Over the holiday season I've have fluxuated a little (only going up) and so I've spent the past few weeks just trying to get off my holiday weight. I have to say it is NOT easy to try to lose weight in the winter months, the last time it was warm enough for me to talk a walk was in November-so essentially that means I haven't had hardly any exercise in 5 months! (dancing not included) This winter has been rough here in Michigan. It's been a LOT of work, I normally LOVE winter but now I am sick to death of it, I just want a nice warm day in the 40's so I can take my little girl for a nice looooonnnngg walk. This is how cold it friend from Russia told me that she feels like she's living in the North Pole, she said it's way colder HERE than it is in RUSSIA....RUSSIA!

This morning I weighed in at 162- not too bad considering the obscene amounts of chocolate I've been eating. I've really had to cut back. For example today instead of eating 3 chocolate chips cookies, I'm only going to have 2. It's a struggle but I think it'll be worth it in the end.

That really is the truth of it. I love to eat healthy, I'm back to juicing, I'm drinking a lot of water....but I LOVE chocolate...I figure it kind of evens out. So my HOPE is that once it warms up and I can start going for my walks again and playing with my little girl at the park then I'll start dropping the lbs again.

So even though it has been around 6 months since I've lost anymore weight, I am pretty pleased with where I am. This time last year I think I was about 182 which is only a 20 pound weight loss in 1 years time but this time 2 years ago I weighed about 240 pounds. 

I would really like to lose about 10 more pounds before our Hula recital in June...I'd prefer my hula skirt to do more swaying than my arm flab.

*****LOL MOMENT as I sit on the couch writing this I say out loud to my husband "I need some more fat pictures of myself" my husband responds "said no one ever" I laughed so hard!! I was referring to needing to find one that I haven't already posted a million times on my blog!


  1. First, LOVE the B&W pic of you and Z :)
    Second, when it gets warm we should walk!!!

  2. Frankly, I need some more skinny pictures of myself...ok, I would settle for one :) Funny!

  3. That last pic of you both is so beauitful and you look great:-) It's always hard getting that weight off! You've done well to not put much weight on, when it's cold it's hard not to over eat. I'm fed up with the cold:-(
