New year, this is how it begins


So, here are the cold, hard, ugly facts of where I stand in my new journey to health:

Yep, that number is right. :( 147 pounds.  Not my heaviest, but not my lightest either.  When I got pregnant with Miles (who turns 7 in 17 days), I was at 127.  I was eating healthy, and going to the gym five days a week.  I know that second part is a distant memory, at least until both kids are in school later this year, but still 20 pounds is a big difference!  That is the size of an average 1 year old! 

So, now that the picture of the scale is out there for the world to see, here are some other stats.  Because, why not? You already know how much I weight.

Bust: 37"
Waist:36 1/4"
Hips: 39 1/8"

Wow, that is an even uglier picture than what I orignally thought.  Ready for some more ugly?

See, bad bad bad.  This is what carbs and no workouts do to you! So here is hoping over the next 364 days I can make improvements to my lifestyle and health. And hopefully posting a picture on December 31st of me in a bikini!


  1. My youngest is born January 18th also. He's turning 5. I am at the same current weight and was at the same pre-pregnancy weight. I stand at 5'2". How tall are you? Together we can do this! If you want a workout buddy, feel free to contact me! I'm following the C25K and New Year weight loss challenge through the Sisterhood. That is where I found you. We can do it!!

  2. I stand at 5'6", but I just don't like the tire that sits around my waist! HAHA!!! Good luck on the C25K and weight loss challenge!
