I'm back!! New 2011 me! *Updated in Post #7*
 
He ladies - I haven't be around in Yummy Mommies for quite some time - mind if I join you again? Hopefully for longer than last time!

Anyways - I got 3 months paid to the gym for Christmas so I started going back .Where I go it is all classes only - they do spinning, yoga, Pilates and the Les Mills Challenge classes. Its nice because having someone hold you accountable to go to class helps & the "peer pressure" of keeping up with everyone has been good too.

I started "eating better" (portion control, watching my calorie intake, cut my soda's back to one per day - going to shoot for cold turkey no soda on Monday, less to zero carbs), working out and staying active! I started on Tues 1/4.

I weighed in yesterday at 6lbs lost in one week - I know week #1 is usually always a "better" week with the most weight loss (has been for me in the past anyways) so I am not looking for that every week - would love it, but know I wont :) As long as I am losing I am happy.

I am aiming for losing 35-40lbs. I really want this to be done by May 15th! I have a 6 hour ride for the Ovarian Cancer Cycle then and hoping I'll be in shape or well on my way by then!

Here is my picture today - 6lbs lost (sorry dont have a pic from 1/4) so I'll do weekly pics and keep chatting with you girls in hopes to keep myself going!

I am too embarrassed to post my weight in lbs so I'll just say Size 14 now :)

Good for you Bonnie! I can't wait to see your progress. You look great already but I know how much it feels better to take weight off too.

Haha thanks for the encouragement Meagan. I definitely do not FEEL great. I don't want to be a 14 anymore. I got up to a 16 last year and I was miserable. I don't feel healthy nor do I feel like I look healthy. I have a lot of weight in my middle (stomach, love handles) that my black pants can hide some of :)

I would like to get down to about an 8. I truly think I'd feel better about myself- not so much focused on a weight number as much as I am about clothing size, don't know why but I am!! LOL!

Good luck Bonnie! I agree, you look fantastic, but I totally understand how you feel. I'm built like you, where I have a waist line no matter how big I am, so while people say "Oh, you look great!" I'm thinking "really, 'cause I feel like a walrus."

That is such a healthy way to be! So many women get hung up on the weight number and really, being comfortable in your body and in your clothes is what counts, IMO.

You're doing great, girl! And hey, now you've got Hunter to keep you active too. ;)
