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

Part 2 of my last post/A Reply to a Comment

I decided to write a second part to my last post in response to some comments that were left. I understand the heart of the woman who wrote the response and I am in no way being critical of her comment. I just want to share my heart in a more deeper way. Here it goes: By far am I thinking and promoting people to walk in gray areas or sin. I am just simply sharing that we are all on this journey of walking with the Lord and sometimes we as Christian women can put yokes of bondage out of Law and not allow the Lord to change us by His Spirit. I am wanting to share how the Grace of God has taught me that by His Spirit I can be changed, not by doctrines or teachings of religion. Yes, the bible clearly says that women should wear modest apparel. Does this mean skirts? Yes, it says that having long hair is a covering for the woman? But will Jesus still love me if I do cut my hair? And how long is long enough? Some women cut their hair to help a good cause such as wigs for cancer
