First Goal Achieved! Plateau Broken!

After a 1 lb loss at my last weigh in on 2/28 I knew I needed to change up my diet and gym routine to push through my plateau. Any time that I’ve had weight to lose I plateau around month 3 which is usually the time I start heavy lifting. I drop a large…

Lose It Weight Loss Challenge: 5th Weigh In 2/28/20

Today was weigh in number 5! I knew going into this weigh in I would not see much movement on the scale. I started lifting over the last month and just like I predicted a 1 lbs loss. I’m down to 246 lbs. Not a huge movement. The number that made me feel better was…

How I Hit 300 lbs

Thankfully I haven’t seen the 300’s on the scale for quite a few years but in 2016 I was there. Actually I was over 300, quickly approaching the 330’s… I was a first time mom, but way past the ‘baby weight’ excuse. I had an active 6 year old, a full time job, and two…

My Current Sweet Obsession

I’ve been doing a fantastic job of sticking to healthy eating. I’ve avoided fast food 99% of the time, drinking almost all water, and avoiding junk. Lately though, I’ve had a bit of a sweet tooth. Chocolate doesn’t sound right, and anything super sugary just does not look appealing. It’s amazing how your cravings change…

Lose It Weight Loss Challenge: 4th Weigh In 2/14/20

Happy Valentines Day! It’s also weigh in day!   Two weeks ago I weighed in at 252 lbs, today I weighed in at…248 lbs! And bonus, at home without the gym clothes I was 247 lbs! I also went down another 1% body fat. I didn’t catch the number before they wrote it down, I…

Goodbye January!

January was not easy. The sun has been MIA for almost the entire month. The lack of daylight is killing my energy levels. I’ve had zero social interaction. I’ve been sick, worked, and worked. All of us have been hating on January so hard. It got me thinking… What went well this month? What were…

Lose It Weight Loss Challenge: 3rd Weigh In 1/31/20

Today was the 3rd weigh in! After having Influenza B for a week and only going to the gym a hand full of times my weight was down 2 lbs to 252.0 (250 lbs at home) and my body fat % had dropped by about .9%. Not the best two weeks, but there were no…

Announcement.

MY JEANS FIT.   Like not my ‘big’ jeans, but my pre-baby, not from the plus section, jeans FIT. And they fit comfortably! This may seem like nothing to many, but I’ve been rocking the yoga pants and over sized stretch pants for 17 MONTHS. I’m like a whole new person. After almost 2 weeks…

Lose It Weight Loss Challenge: 2nd Weigh In 1/17/20

The team name CEREAL KILLERS, is perfect for a few reasons. My best friend loves her some cereal, and I spend much of my time watching serial killer shows. So when I was searching name ideas, that was IT. Plus I’d like to think we’re going to kill this weight loss challenge! This is my…
