And this is why I haven’t been on in a while. This little boy takes up my day and consumes it with such light and joy. I cannot believe it has been over three months already!

I started 30DS today. Gonna get ripped, y’all! Also doing Zumba on Thursday nights for 90 minutes! I’m going to be sore as heck, but at least I’ll be looking good and getting back into my pretty clothes!

Well, today is the day guys!

Less than a year into my weight loss journey, and I’ve officially lost 100 pounds.

HW: 290

CW: 190

The top left picture: 285. Top right picture: 270.

It’s been a long ride, but I’m so proud of myself right now! I know I have a long way still to go, but this is a huge milestone to me and I am so proud of what I’ve done with my life. :)

Formerly obese and unhappy, one day I decided I’d had enough. I’ve lost 160 lbs, become a 2x marathoner, triathlete, & I’m currently training for a 50 mile ultra marathon this August.

Getting happier & stronger each and every day.

It’s never too late to change your story.

I’m working for the body I want, while appreciating the body I have.

Week Two Goals

Rather than just having big goals, I decided that I want to set weekly goals for myself. And then one big Monthly goal.

Goals for week 2:

1. Track points every day

2. Earn at least 50 activity points

Distance to monthly weight goal: 12 lbs

He’s my inspiration and motivation to get back to where I was and then go even further.

I want to be the type of mom that is active with her kids. I want to be able to go running and biking with them, chase them around the playground, take them to amusement parks and be able to ride the attractions with them. I want to instill a healthy lifestyle in my children. I want to promote healthy eating and staying active.

And I want my kids to be proud of me. I never want Mason to have to go through shame because his mom is obese. I never want him to be embarrassed to point me out to his friends.

But above all else, I want to be there for him and any future children Greg and I have. I want to watch my kids grow up and have kids of their own. I want to be as healthy as I can be so that my kids will have their mom around for a very long time.

Getting healthy is no longer just about me. Everything I do from here on out is to give my son the best mom that he can have.

Week One Weigh In

I started counting points last Thursday. I ended up not tracking over the weekend with the holidays and eating potluck meals. I started back up with tracking and really began focusing on eating well around Tuesday.

That being said, here’s how I did:

Week one:

-2.4 pounds!

It’s a start!

This little boy is my entire world :)

Destroy the assumption that all fat girls have low self esteem. You don’t like my body? That’s on you, not me.
