Mavation Monday Im so BACK!!!!



20.8lbs & 2.5in Loss this week







24.8lbs & 16in total Loss!!!







I weighed my self like 3 times and yelled for my husband to come in the room just to make sure my eyes weren't playing tricks on me. I even moved the scale to a different room because I was sure that this was a mistake. But it only changed less than a pound when I would reweigh.. I have been flying on cloud 9 all day. I tried to figure out what did I do so differently this week? The only thing was Monday & Tuesday I had a major pity party for myself its been a stressful last few weeks, more so than usual. But I decided I would allow myself to have a pity party and cry and be all mad but I didn't allow myself to EMO Eat.. I refused to let myself do it. Because I knew I wouldn't be able to control my intake. I was also bitten by the Twilight Saga this week. It gave me something to do. Once I picked it up I couldn't put it down, I was so hooked but it was a great release and let me relax. It was something for me and by the way if you haven't been following on Twitter. I am Team


and that is the only Team there is really.... But even my Sistas that are Team Dog I mean Team Jacob I still Loves ya, but Doood seriouslly Team Edward is the only one for me. But after I thought about it today, I realized I've always had a weak spot in me for Vampires and I can thank my Aunt RaRa and Karla for that, But I do think I need to find different ways to handle stress and reading might be a good one for me.



I know that next week I am extremely busy. I have atleast one meeting each day next week. I have PT 3x and school meetings, Im also going on a field trip with my middle one to go see Suessical the Musical; which we are both excited about. As of right now I am planning to attend Fitcation11 I am extremely excited because I will meet so many of my wonderful supportive Mamavation Sistas and have a girls Fitness Weekend. I've been a mother for almost 11 years and never had a weekend away, and I've never been to TX so its alot of firsts for me there. I can't believe that we are almost at the end of this Campaign. I am so thankful that I have stuck to it and I am making positive lifestyle changes for life! I know that I will meet my goals!




Wow Its time for measurements again... This is the last set for this campaign...




Bust: 51 (0)




Wasit: 45 (-.5)




Hips: 58 (-1)




Thigh: 26 (0)




Calf:19.5 (-.5)




Arm: 14.5 (.5)





How do you encourage your children to contribute to your family's healthy lifestyle?




Well we try our best to keep encouraging them to be active. We also have a garden so we ask the boys what veggies they want to help plant and care for. They also have Fruit Trees and Fruit Bushes. We let them pick places for new walks and going to the zoo. We want them to grow up with the concept that being active is healthy for them.

That is SO awesome, congratulations!! :) So inspiring to hear somebody achieve their goals, and you should be SO proud of yourself! Weight loss is NEVER an easy battle, so pressing through it is tough work. Celebrate your success and keep going forward! :)

Marie said...

Did I just read that right?!?! 20.8 lbs in ONE WEEK? That is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! Yay, another Team Edward fan! I hope this week awesome!

How in the? What the? How in the? I know you had a some excellent news this week but 20 is a Biggest Loser number. There is no way you could have done this if you were starving yourself. You have been needing a win for a while and I could not be happier for you. You have struggled in the beginning of this campaign and reached out and fought. It is good seeing your perseverance pay off - but I need to know more of how you pulled this off. I would love to see an "Anatomy of a 20 pound loss" type of post.

I'm glad to see you found a way to deal with the stress of life other than eating. Emotional eating is an easy and immediate way to deal with stress, so finding an alternative is half the battle! :) Hope this next week is a success for you!

Wow! Holy blow-me-out-of-the-water girl!

I know you needed a good loss after the past couple of weeks. I am so proud that you stuck with it. Have a great week and I can't wait to see what you do next week!

Katie said...

Oh my gosh! You lost 20 pounds in one week? Holy cow, woman! I'm really glad you wrote this though because on my one week where I felt like I did everything right, I only dropped a pound and I joked that my body was afraid and refused to give it up. Maybe this is why. I am so excited for you and it gives me some hope. *hugs*
