So, it’s been a few months since I last updated you guys on my weight-loss journey/progress. Allow me now to toot my own horn: in August, I returned to my pre-pregnancy weight of 135 pounds!!! WOOHOO!!! Today, I’m weighing 130 pounds, which leaves me 5 pounds away from my goal weight. I want to get back to my wedding weight, and I can see the light haha. It’s been a loooong journey, but I’ve worked my butt off to get to this point. The beginning was rough since I had Ava around the holidays (that means there was lots of deliciousness to avoid…. mmm that wasn’t going to happen), and not to mention that we live in a city that has some of the most amazing food! Anyway, I digress. It took lots of will power and the support of my husband to join me in this journey, and we’ve both been shedding the weight, making wise choices, and have been coming up with creative ways to exercise since we tend to get bored, become inactive, and put the weight back on. We’ve come so far, we feel so good, look so good (ha), to stop now. No looking back for us, and we hope to maintain a healthy lifestyle! Before I forget, in the last month, I’ve also taken part of this awesome workout regimen http://bikinibodymommy.com/. So head on over and check it out! It’s great!
Losing weight is no easy task! Today, I am four pounds away from my pre pregnancy weight. I have been for two weeks now. We started going to the gym on Monday nights, and the cardio boxing class I go to is tough! But I enjoy it. I have realized, however, that eating right, or at least trying to, isn’t going to help me shed these last few pounds. Neither will going to the gym once a week! On a daily basis I try to stay active and move around, do some squats with Ava, but I’ve hit that stand still. I don’t like it. In fact, I despise being stuck because I still want to lose 10 more pounds after reaching my pre pregnancy weight. Like I said before, I choose results, and that just means that I have to push and work harder to get the results I want. My birthday is in mid-May and that is my deadline to lose these fourteen pounds! I can do it!!
It’s been two weeks since my last post! I’ve been busy, you know, being a wife and first time mom. I’m loving every single minute of it. Ava fills my heart with so much joy and it’s crazy how much I love her. On top of being a wife and a mom, I’ve been working on losing weight. Sam and I started a weight loss competition back in January and it’s going to be over by the end of this month. I had this idea in my head of what I would look like today, and it’s totally not living up to that image. Weight loss has not been easy, but I haven’t given up, nor will I give up! Before beginning the competition, I had already lost 15 pounds without even trying, but I figured it’s because I breastfeed. Today, I’m about 8 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight, however, I still plan on losing at least 10 more pounds after that, if not 15. Exercising and eating or trying to eat right, is how we’re working on getting fit and skinny. We’ve had a few setbacks when it comes to the food, because there are so many delicious restaurants around here. Sam and I are motivated and keep pushing each other because we want to win the competition. But, even if we don’t win, at least we’re doing something worthwhile, pushing for a healthier lifestyle, with no more excuses. Also, my goal at the end of the competition is to fit into my pants! I’ve still been wearing my maternity jeans and I’m tired of them! I will definitely update my progress, I’m excited to be even more fit than I’ve ever been.
I choose results!
