I weighed myself today...

So far I've lost 12 lbs!  I've been working out and trying to limit what I eat (ie, via calories). It's been a hard road and lots of ups and downs but I'm finally starting to see the results!  I notice my tummy is getting a bit flatter.  I haven't measured my waist yet to see if I've lost any inches, I'll do that once I lose 20 lbs .

I was always a skinny minnie thing before I had my youngest daughter (who is now 8).  I don't want to get that skinny again, but I'd like to drop enough weight that I feel good about myself.  And don't look like I'm 6 months pregnant! :)

Has anyone else here on my blog lost weight or tried?  Was it difficult for you as it is for me?  I love food!


  1. I really went weight loss crazy last summer and lost 35 pds. I'm still trying to lose more, but haven't really been diligent about it for some months now. Luckily I haven't gained weight, I just seem to be maintaining. I'm okay with that....for now. I still want to lose 20 pds, that will get me back to my weight in high school. What have you been doing? I went at it very simply, I upped my veggie and fruit intake and limited myself to all the goodies. I dropped my soft drinks and went either for water or the crystal clear packets but now I'm drinking soda again, just not nearly as much as I was before. Good luck!

  2. Congrats Laura!

    I'm trying to lose some weight too. Ever since I had my boys (who are now 3) I haven't been same weight as before and I'm trying to get fit and lose a few pounds. Slowly but surely :)

  3. I'm one of those people that can eat a whole house and not gain weight! I eat all sorts of rubbish - burgers, crisps etc, and don't exercise - but I only weigh 8 stone and a half! Can't say I'm complaining but I'm only 20 now, so I imagine I'm going to be as round as Buddha in 20 years...
