About My First Little Victory

I have tried losing weight a couple of times since my first baby and I did... both times! But neither of those times stuck. Both times I started around 162-ish and ended up around 157-ish. Then I stopped. The first time because a cold that just never seemed to go away and when it finally did I was out of the habit and had lost my desire. The second time was... we can call it winter blues, or there are other reasons that I won't go into, but once again I stopped progressing. I wasn't seriously committed enough to my weight loss and both times went right back up to 162.

I'm happy to say that for the first time in 4 years I am below 157! I weighed in at 156 + a couple ounces this morning! WOOOWHOOOO!!!! I probably wouldn't be quite so excited if this were any other attempt to lose weight, BUT I know I'm only going to keep dropping on the scales so it's ok to get excited!

Next little victory will be at the end of the day today when I will have made it through a full week. Then there's making it through double digits, 1/4 of the 60 days, my pre pregnancy weight, my pre-wedding weight... and the list goes on!!!

Seriously... I wish this were a book so I could read what happens at the end already. Happy day:)

Oh, and I'm still waking up before 7 feeling fully rested. I'm sure it helped that we went to bed at 9:00 last night, but in the past regardless of when I went to bed I couldn't seem to drag myself out of bed until sometime between 8:00 and 9:00. I love these early mornings!


  1. haha, yeah, i bottomed out at about 159 and haven't broken through it. same as you. gotten right back to it a couple time, but can't move on. i'm hoping this will be just what i need to break that stupid barrier...and stay there! i'm so excited for you. wow, a week! i'm sure it hasn't seemed fast to you, but it kind of has for me. i'm impressed.

  2. wow I wish my kids would let me sleep in like that:) congrats that is super exciting!

    1. It's really embarrassing for me to admit but Nate usually takes care of them in the morning. Plus they are pretty well behaved (by nature, not nurture). I try to get up earlier for Isaac because he still puts anything in his mouth, but Clark keeps a pretty good eye on him too.
