Looking for a do-over – time for a body makeover

Hi everybody I thought I would change it up tonight other than the normal Creative Memories posts

One of my favorite shows is the Biggest Loser.   This season especially has really had an affect on me.  Why you ask?  Because I realized that I am officially big enough that I could be on the show.   It broke my heart and really made me feel like crap.  I mean I am a 8 time Triathlete have done a number of 5ks and had a personal trainer for 2 years and now look at me.  I can hardly look at myself in the mirror.   I have stopped wearing make-up because let’s face it I’m a busy mommy and wife and well the mirror time is just depressing.  I think it’s sad to me because I used to be 100lbs lighter.  Now granted I was really thin and it wasn’t the right size for me because I couldn’t maintain it.  I think the last 50 lbs are really to blame for me just being lazy and making poor choices.

After having my son, who is now almost 16 months old and weighs 25 lbs, I feel disgusting and it’s really time for a change.   I think also having had 2 surgeries one was him being born, not the way I wanted to go but that was what happened, and then 3 months later having to have my Gall Bladder out I feel like my body is breaking and it’s scary.  I also see what has happened to the bodies of the people on the Biggest Loser and I don’t want that for me or my family.

This is  going to be a process that’s for sure but with baby steps and consistency anything is possible.    I know I can be strong and I will always be a “sturdy” girl but in the end I just want to feel better and look good in my pictures again.  I have found that some of the hobbies I have loved including scrapbooking and other picture related things I am not doing as much because I don’t want to look at myself in the pictures.  It’s so sad and it’s who I am at the moment, but I can’t let that define me.

So here are my starting points:

First a pic, this was on New Years but other than my hair length this is pretty standard.  🙂


Height 5′ 5″

Weight 256

Size 22 or a 1xl in Tops.

Big Goal:  To not be plus sized anymore, I was there once, will get there again, overall weight lost around 75 lbs

Mini-Goal:  Be consistent for 1 week.  I will weight in each Monday and post my progress.

Main goal #1:  Lose 10% of my weight.

How am I going to do it – Week 1

Eat healthy meals, cut out the soda, drink more water, and move just a little bit more


If you are just visiting thank you for stopping, if you are going to follow me on my journey, welcome.   Encouragement or a buddy is always welcome  🙂

Thanks for stopping,

I’ll be back a week from Monday with an update
