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

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."
