I'm losing it....

No, not my mind!!

my FAT!

After being preggo almost every other year

I am ready to lose this

My plan is to lose about 50 lbs of blubber by the time I turn 40 this December.
So...if I lose 2 lbs a week
I think I can reach my goal

I remember when I had lost some weight about 10 years ago right before my 30th birthday...
I went down to my pre-pregnancy weight and looked pretty darn good. :)

Here is a picture of me at my wonderful 30th birthday outing in Tampa, Florida
Just thought I would act a little wild and crazy

So today is the official kick off of the fat coming off.
To be honest.....I am a little hesitant to let you know what I'm doing


because this means......
you are going to be expecting me to lose the weight

by telling you
will make me accountable and maybe more determined to stick with it

welllll....I'm still a little hesitant.

Oh well....what can I do about it now, since I already told you...
no turning back now....yikes!


I kept thinking today while doing the dishes:

"I am not getting skinnier by standing here and doing dishes"
"I walk around the house and still not lost one pound"
"I'm not nursing anymore, so what's my excuse?"

What is my excuse? What am I waiting for?
the dishes will always be here and
by golly
( not how I really talk in person..just when I write...ha ha)

the kids can do 'em if I need them to.

So I am determined to make the time during afternoon naps to really work myself hard!

i think
oh gosh I hope
knees trembling

Here is the DVD I am using (for now) to get the FAT off

I am trying to do the whole dvd....ha ha...

I feel like a very out of shape should see me.....not a pretty sight
oh no! not at all....

At least I'm in the comfort of my own home...a big plus when I don't want people staring at how
my blubber jiggles
i know...gross

and how
awkward I might look doing those oh my!

Soooo..... who has inspired me to lose it?
I found this cool blog of a woman determined to lose
100 lbs!!

It has ever so motivated me.
So far she has lost a little over 50 lbs and looks absolutely fabulous!
I just love her before and after pics. She also takes pics of herself after every weigh in..
She looks beautiful!
Here's her blog...
Real Fat

And the searching continues

I'm ready to be
to live
a fulfilled

you can do it girl....I'm rootin' for ya!
Good for you. I have watched my hubby struggle for 15 years. It is difficult for him. The one thing we have both learned is you can exercise all you want (even at his heaviest he worked out 2 hours every day) it is all about portions. Eat only when you are hungry and stop when you are satisfied NOT FULL. Big difference. I lost 20 lbs of baby fat using this method and it works.

Accountability is huge too. I'm proud of you for putting this on your blog. You are also being a good example to your children.

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
