Mamavation Monday

Lost:







4lbs and 13.5 inches last seen a week ago.



If found please DO NOT RETURN



Thats right everyone I finally lost weight... 4lbs and I am so excited and thankful for the support. This has been a very hard week for me. Wednesday I was at my breaking point, stressed to the max and very disapointed in not seeing ANY weight loss. I came very very extremely close to breaking my diet and throw everything I had done out the window but I didn't and I am very glad I didn't because when I woke up in the morning I saw a change. As Pete Cohen from www.petecohen.com told us monday night. We need to Shut the Duck Up and Just do it! The duck was quacking very loudly wednesday night but I did manage to shut the duck up with the support of the Sistahood. I know that if I wouldn't have had you guys on wednesday I would have caved. I still have a long way to go, but i am almost 25% of the way to my first goal and reward. When I have lost 5lbs 4times (20lbs) I am going to go get my ears pierced! Its also time to post the measurements again, they are going down so that is a positive thing :) I still have a ways to go but its the small steps that are counting..


Bust 51 (-1in)


Waist 45 1/2 (-5.5 in)


Hips 59 (-2in)


Thigh 26 (-4in)


Calf 20 (+.5in)


Arm 15 (-1.5in)


This week our question is..


What am I doing to keep my heart healthy?


Well my diet and excersize are the biggest thing I am doing to try and keep my heart healthy. Making sure I am getting enough good fruits and Veggies into my system. I am also trying to find ways to manage and cope with my stress.


Goals for the new week...



  1. Walking... Trying to manage 3 miles a day

  2. Water... Keeping my 64oz minimum each day.

  3. New Recipe for the week.. Not sure yet but will post when I figure it out

Continue to monitor my portions and nutrition

Well the husband and I are heading out for a walk so I'll will see you guys Later....

I'm so so so proud of you and I'm so glad you've found a support system! Don't forget to go check out Pete's site. I think he is giving mamavation sistas a free trial! you don't pay for anything and there's more of him talking and making TONS of sense.

I am so thrilled with your loss of inches!! See!!?? You were losing inches this whole time even if you weren't seeing it on the scale! That's awesome. So happy for you.
