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.

She is Here!! Welcome Ana Karisa!!

Just a quick update to let you know we had the baby!!  Yay!!!! :D Here name:  Ana Karisa (pronounced  A-nah  Ka-ree-sah  ) Born: January 30 at 9:15 PM Weight:  7'2 oz  19 inches  Beautiful little girl.   Here are some pictures and when I start feeling normal and not so much like a milk cow, then I will post the details of what took place on Delivery day. ( Ana about 5 minutes old) (Here she after her check up--about 30 minutes old)   (Coming home!!  1 1/2 days old) We came home yesterday late afternoon, and I am lacking much sleep.  I really haven't slept since last Saturday.   She is nursing a lot right now to bring down my milk.  I've been nursing around the clock.  Almost every hour.  I am doing this because she has been hungry and I need my milk to come in as soon as possible.  I am showing signs today of it coming in.  She is not so fussy and more content.   It is so easy to forget about those newborn days.  It doesn't matter how many babies you have h

A day away....

Life had become so overwhelming for me when Donnie was away with the older two  children.  It seemed we hardly ever had time to really talk about life anymore I started to feel disconnected with him I really don't like this feeling I am not a surface type of person and when "problems" in life begin to brew..... look out!!   I will do what it takes to make things better.... Even if we have to make an emergency get-a-way... I wanted just one day... one whole day alone with him. Sooooo.... Donnie asked his sweet mom to watch the children for us while we took a little drive on over to the beach... ahhhhhh I think the beach has become one of my favorite places to be.... There is something that takes place deep in my heart when I come face to face with the massive ocean and the waves.... The breeze blows and there I find some comfort and peace... We had such a great time reflecting and revamping some of our vision, plans, and goals for  the

Meet Sweet Kara Faith

My sweet friend Nancy from Mom Just Like You , delivered sweet Kara Faith on January 8, 2010 at around 6:45 AM. Nancy's husband Stu calls me around 5:30 AM to let me know Nancy's contractions never let up and she was going to be delivering their long awaited miracle baby Kara. It has been an emotional battle these past 4 to 5 months for Nancy and Stu. Kara was diagnosed with Alobar HPE on the same day they found out they were having a baby girl, their 8th child, third daughter. Their heart was broken not knowing what the future held for them. Nancy leaned on the only source she had in her life: The Lord. I have been friends with Nancy for 5 plus years now (we met on MOMYS). When I found out Nancy was going to have a special baby, immediately my mommy heart was aching for my sweet friend. I went into deep prayer and intercession for them. I was grieving along with them, but deep down in my heart I knew God was and is Faithful. As I prayed one evening at worship nigh
