Seriously, I am lacking on my updates, after posting my weight loss photos I thought to myself, "how do I follow up to that?".  I guess there isn't anything that I can say or do to top that, but I can continue on my journey and keep everyone updated.  It has been birthday party and baby shower central for the past month of August. Every weekend guarantees that I will be eating cake and other bad food so I've been careful not to go too nuts because I know each weekend I will get a treat (yay)!.  I've been so tired lately, Baby girl is teething and sleeping horribly, yesterday I had to drop both babies off at playcare just to get a nap in.  I couldn't function, which is highly unusual as I can make a pass even on my worst of days.  A long weekend is coming up here so I am hoping to get some stuff around the house done.  I am looking forward to September being over, but only because I am so excited for October!

Wanna See a 50 pound weight loss ;)

Wait no longer, here it is!!!

After (but still a work in progress)

Thursday, August 23, 2012


I just realised that today is Thursday and I still had not blogged about my weight loss, I also realised that I have yet to take my 50 pound picture!!! I will try and see if I can get one tommorrow, I usually ask Andy, but because he gets impatient I will just do it myself and take as many as I need too.  It's a great milestone to hit as I had felt in the beggining that I would never get there.  I've never felt like quitting, but when I saw the big picture, 50 pounds was a lot to take in and felt like it would take forever to lose.

I heard the old saying is "during pregnancy it takes you twice as long to take it off as it does to put it on".  I guess I just whooped that saying in the ass, I didn't gain as much in my 2nd pregnancy as I did in my first, because I already knew that a 60+ weight gain was too much the first time around, so I was a bit more cautious.  I also knew that once my 6 week appointment was over I would find a good kickboxing gym and start up again.  The coach there is always commenting that he needs the weight loss pictures so he can show them to people and I really need to light a fire under my butt as well.  I want people who go to that gym to see that "yes it is possible and yes I am a real person who comes here".

So, I can't give any promises, but I would like to have my pictures up for you wonderful readers tomorrow (especially since if I didn't you would have to wait until October when you see me :D)

188 (still)

No change from last weeks kick ass weight loss.  Well technically I lost .6 pounds, but since I just go and round everything up I don't count it on my blog.  I wasn't really expecting to lose too much weight this week since the week prior to that I lose 4 pound.  I'm still quite happy with even getting to 188!  I was getting ready to send stuff off to the goodwill, but Andy mentioned that there will be a community garage sale in September, so if we sign up I am thinking of selling some of my clothes that are in good condition, I will send the rest off as well as anything that doesn't sell at the garage sale.
 I am hoping this week to have a bit more success since I am being careful.  There seems to be a party going on each weekend in August, whether it be Birthdays (cakes, cupcakes, desserts) or Baby Showers (um, cakes, cupcakes, desserts) I have to be very careful.  It feels like Saturday is always my make or break day because I have to weigh myself the next day so when I wake up Sunday morning and I know I've been eating sweets the day before I'm a little hesitant to weigh myself.

Also, what was I thinking starting this program on a Sunday, d'oh!  Anyway I am just trying to focus on doing some good this week, and counting down the days until I go home for some Thanksgiving Turkey, less than 2 months away, I can taste the delicious Tim Hortons tea as we speak (it's doesn't taste the same when I make it).  I am going to make sure to have some Harveys while I'm home too, and go shopping at Rickis, and Fabricland and any other Canadian store I don't get to frequent anymore......  Dammit October, GET HERE FASTER (except the part where I turn 30, you stay away).

I will make 2 exceptions for my food intake while I'm there, and then I will need to make sure I crack the whip on myself after that, no need to gain all 50 pounds back in one week (maybe I should make a meal plan to stick to the fridge at my moms house?)

188 Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa


That's all I would have posted, but I figured that wouldn't be much of a blog post.  I weighed myself this morning, which is probably why I got 188 and not 190, but either way, I finally beat the 193 curse!  My weight watchers app said "Hey, you fucking rock! set a new goal".  Okay it didn't say that, but it did tell me to set a new goal.  I set something a little more realistic this time and said 178.  10 pounds is an easier goal than going from the 210-190 goal that I set so many months ago.  A few more pairs of my old capris fit, so that means the "saggy butt" I am experiencing with my current pair is almost over.  My wedding and engagement rings are still tight and not fitting (and one almost got stuck, um that was scary getting it off my finger!)  I am just so excited to have hit (what I think was) my pre-baby weight...give or take a few pounds.  I can tell there are so differences from how my body was pre-babies vs post babies, it isn't shaped the way it used to be (any other mommies experiencing this? Either way I am so happy, and maybe when I hit that 50 pound weight loss I will post pictures (I actually took photos of my BEFORE, I didn't want to forget how hard I worked to get here).  For friends and family who read my blog, I will spare you the "bra" pictures and just post me in my tank top and work out pants.  That photo will hopefully come within the next few weeks as my overall loss has been 47 pounds.

Until then....
