New Start

Today is it, a new start!!

In order to feel some form of pride and accomplishment in what I know is possible for me I had to get rid of my previous weight loss numbers and progress pictures. When I would look at them they were depressing to see how far I have to go! I can't think about how far I have slipped from where I was back in December 2010 but rather focus on the here and now.

I do have a long road ahead of me and to be honest it feels overwhelming right now but I know the longer I wait to start making changes the worse I will feel and the longer it will take to get back to a healthy and fit body.

My plan for this week is;

  • Track my food on MyFitnessPal and stay within my calorie allotment of 2000 calories (I am a nursing mom so I have adjusted it to take that into account)
  • Eat whole foods
  • Limit wheat intake
  • Weigh only on Saturday
  • Exercise 3 times this week
  • Make NO EXCUSES!!!

My starting weight is 193lbs this morning.
And here are the starting pictures...


  1. I can't wait to see you work back towards a healthier weight. You will doi awesome, just like you did last time!

    Don't be too had a baby. That's quite the accomplishment and worth every pound gained, in my opinion.

    Cheering for you,

  2. You can absolutely do this! I'm a mom of many too and they are a great incentive to get to and stay at a healthy weight.

  3. HUGS! You can do this! You will do this! You are a strong, powerful mama!

    Look me up on MFP - ahanov and I will poke you if you don't track.
