I don’t have alot to say this week….but what I will say is proufound……..LOL!
The BEST motivation in the world for continuing to work at my weight loss is:
Trying to fit into last year’s bathing suit so we could go out on the lake this past weekend.
OH.MY.GAWD. It took me at least 10 minutes to get the damn thing on.
Do I weigh more than last year – nope – I actually weigh 5 lbs less than I did last August (slow but steady wins the race..).
Apparently, the weight has shifted itself around. It was heinous I tell you. It’s one of those suits that “shrinks” you anyway, so once I got it over my butt it was all sorts of twisted and rolled up. It took another 7-8 minutes of pulling and tugging and unrolling to get it up to my boobs, so that the straps could be untwisted to go over my shoulders.
On another note – my friend Mel and I did another 1.7 mile walk this morning. We’ve gotten into a nice routine with the kids (my 2 little ones). She pushes the jogging stroller with J, and I push my other stroller with N. Her neighborhood has sidewalks, so we tend to walk behind the other until we get to the side street were it’s safer to walk in the street. We talk and walk, and sometimes we just walk and admire the flowers and gardens in the neighborhood – mainly because we are too out of breath to talk! I found out today that she has a goal too of weight to lose before her birthday. We’ll keep walking 3 days a week together until the end of the school year, and then we’ll start back up in August again when the kids start back to school. I will be walking in the summer in the evenings with my kids or in the mornings when we are visiting family.
Love & Hugs – my Mamavation sistas are awesome!
