I'm serious this time!

Remember a while back, well, a long while back, when I was pregnant with Jett and I wrote this post?  I didn't exactly keep up with it after Jett came along.  I've tried coming up with a good reason as to why I haven't done anything to lose weight, but I can't.  The only thing that has slowed the weight loss process down is my Jett's dwindling milk supply when I eat less...well, that and my lack of motivation.  I thought about just starting the whole thing after Christmas...a New Year's resolution or whatever, but I can't wait.  I need this weight off.  Like now!  Yesterday, even! 

I started doing Jillian Michael's 30 day shred.  It totally kicked my butt the first day.  Like, I felt like I was gonna throw up and pass out...within the first 10 minutes. oy.  It hurt.  But I'm on day 4 now, and although it still burns and I feel like dying half-way through it, I feel so much better afterwards!  Can I just ask why no one has thought about big-chested women when they make work out dvd's?  Have you ever tried doing a jumping jack with 2 bowling balls hanging off you?  My bra cuts into my shoulders so bad, I'm surprised they didn't bleed!  I now have to hold my girls while doing the jumping jacks.  sorry if that's tmi, but there it is. 

As for my eating plan, I don't really plan on changing too much, other than just eating more fruits and veggies.  I honestly don't eat all day long (as the shape of my body would suggest otherwise).  I usually have a big iced coffee (with splenda and a little skim milk) in the morning with maybe a granola bar, if anything (I'm not a big breakfast eater) and for lunch, it's usually chicken noodle soup or a sandwich with pretzels.  For dinner, I eat okay (not great, not horrible), but I never get seconds.  The big thing for me is nighttime snacking.  After the kids go to bed, I just want to sit down and watch a movie with Mike, and it makes me wanna snack, so I'll have a bowl of ice cream, or chips.  Never carrot sticks or celery, for some reason.  ;)  I figure if I cut out the evening snacks, and drink only water and eat nothing after 6pm, it will help drastically!  Oh, we cut out pop about 3 months ago, so that's been hard, but at least I don't have the cravings for it anymore.  We'll have it every once in a while if we go out to eat or something, but we never buy it for our house anymore.  I usually drink tea with splenda.  I must start drinking more water, too. 

So that's it.  Please, please pray for me as I continue this.  I have a long way to go, and I'm just starting.  Gotta start somewhere, right?  :)

I want to encourage you (and I will pray for you too) as you are changing your eating habits a bit and working out to focus more on doing it b.c it makes you HEALTHY and not to lose weight.
I have a big old post going on in my head that I haven't been able to put into words yet...but its all about this!

I am praying that you can be CONFIDENT In how you look...period =)

I am with you on this. And yes, I am on Day 4 of my diet also! Nope, I am not doing anything special, but just my diet and routine. With erratic work hours, I hardly get time to exercise, but I try to walk as much as possible.

Have small meals and don't have carbs after 8 pm, no breads, chips, pasta etc. Try having low-fat milk if you feel hungry at late hours. It's filling and helps lose weight also. And have fruits and salads and chuck the breads. Lots of water and 3 cups of green tea help too. I have just started doing all this and I feel better every morning. :)

All the best :)
