Picture Day

Well, hello!
I know this is a day early...but I had time, so I thought it I would do this today. So this is my progress pic from 2 weeks ago.

And this is my pic from today. Jillian is fantastic. She should pay me for promoting her video, but I am proof it works!

I only have 7 pounds to lose to reach my goal. But honestly, that's just a number and I am starting to feel comfortable with my body now, I don't even check my weight like I used to. I really just like being healthy and working out and trying new foods. I am so excited to go clothes shopping on May 1st with my sister. I was going through my clothes the other day when I realized....all of my skinny clothes are gone. I remember thinking last year when I was edging near 175-180 that I probably would never fit into anything again and I got rid of MOST of my pre-pregnancy clothes, what was I thinking? I won't make that mistake again now that I know I am in control of my body, not the other way around. But, yes...I have NO CLOTHES. My clothes are getting too big, and just hang on me. My jeans slide right off. In fact, I have one pair of jeans that fit ok and those are even getting loose. I did keep some old pre-pregnancy jeans, and those are too small. I honestly don't know if I will fit into those again...pregnancy can do amazing things to your hips. Even if I lose more weight, my hips just aren't as slim as they used to be, finally I have a little curve!
For all of those out there working hard and making lifestyle changes ...keep it up, you will see change! Just as a is me on Mother's Day LAST not even a whole year ago. See what a difference a few months of hard work can do? Those jeans don't even stay on me anymore!

Before I go...I big shout out to my sister, Darci. She is starting Jillian and walking more, too. She is one of those girls that look cute at all times, so now she is going to get all fit and be even cuter. Damn her! :)


  1. Your pic from mothers day doesn't even look like you. I remember you showing me that pic when it was taken, and It didn't even seem like you were big to me at all. Of course, I was 260lbs+ at that time too. Congrats on being confident in your body. That is my main goal right now too. I don't care about the numbers on the scale, as much as I care about how good I FEEL and how comfortable I am in my own skin! Keep up the good work. We put that weight on together, and we'll get it off together. Even if you're doing it a little faster than I am, heh.

    Oh, and today I stepped on the scale and it told me I was....
    I was 195 before I got pregnant with Emma. But, my hips are twice as big as they were I think. That's something that will never change, but thats why i'm such an hourglass figure. I can't wait to (hopefully) see you this summer!
