Getting There!

   Today is a VERY good day! 
I've lost 5 lbs in 2.5 weeks!

Collectively, since my weight plateaued in March, I've lost 7 lbs. However, I'm only counting from where I got serious, which was me weighing in at 163 instead of 165.

I was ABSOLUTELY starting to believe I couldn't get my body below the 160's! It was so frustrating! Now that I'm sitting at 158 lbs, life is good and I have confidence in my body again. Everyday I feel stronger and more motivated, which is key. A strong mind can achieve great things!

I see a slimmer face in the mirror now and a flatter tummy! I can fit into my wedding band, but still a no go on my engagement ring...I'll get there though! I have more energy and more smiles and slowly, I'm loosing interest in sugar and the bad foods I crave. I want to be healthy and eat healthy and I am! I've done it for 2.5 weeks now. Gosh, it feels like a huge mile stone, lol! I know myself. If I can stick something out for 2 weeks, it's like a resolve washes over me and I become so much stronger. I've put too much work into this to turn back or fail.

I really have my sister Autumn to thank for this success though. Sure, I've put in the hard work and I'm the one talking myself through weak moments where I want a brownie, or soda or you name it. But she motivated me with a diet and exercise plan that fits my life right now. And I'm EXTREMELY inspired through her success!

 My sister really understands the NO TIME thing being a mother of two, while running an at home daycare. She's had 34 lbs of excess baby weight to loose since the birth of her first child five years ago. However, at the beginning of this year, she decided it was time to invest in herself and loose the weight. She started educating herself; picking the brains of personal trainers and nutritionists, formulating a program that would work for her! My brother in-law was so supportive also and bought her a second hand treadmill. It took only EIGHT WEEKS! And she did it! She lost all of those 34 lbs y'all and has kept it off through simple portion control! I am so proud of her. I can't wait to see her skinny little booty in a few weeks! And to also thank her for sharing, what obviously works!

I will definitely write a blog post on this diet and exercise plan to share with you. I know I have a lot of new mama's on here, in the same boat as me, trying to loose the baby love:) I plan to give it another 2.5 weeks before I weigh in again and at that point I will divulge all! I think I'll have very good news by then. Hoping to make that 5 lb loss into 10!

Wish me luck!
