Friday Weigh-in

Wow, has it really been three weeks since I posted?! I am so sorry!! The flu took two weeks to go through our family. We had 4 anti-nausea prescriptions and one trip to the ER with DD1. The twins were puking for 10 days alone. Then it has taken me a week to just recover. BUT we are all better now and hopefully will stay that way for a while. :)

I thought I would start back in with a weigh in. This has been SO helpful for me to have y'all along for the ride. Since I last posted I have lost another 5 pounds. That makes 20 so far. Can you believe it?! When I started it seemed like such a huge thing to do. Now, I only have 10 to go. I am consistently running 3 miles - slowly. But I am able to do it without stopping.

It has been very helpful to look at this as a lifestyle change instead of just wanting to obtain a certain size. After a while the look looses it's fun when people get used to you being skinny. But when I am trying to be healthy for life then I keep going.


  1. So sorry you were all sick for so long! My opinion is that any illness can be tolerable until you start to puke. Way to go, Mom- I am sure you did a lot of cleaning up of all sorts of things. Even a bigger way to go on the weight loss and I agree if you look at it as a lifestyle change it is much easier to do!

  2. Stomach flu...that's one way to lose weight ;)
    I hate cleaning up throw-up and you had it x7. So sorry! The lifestyle attitude is what I'm working toward too. Some days are better than others. Thanks for sharing your journey.

  3. Um... maybe we need the stomach flu here. I've been running every day for 6 weeks and I still haven't lost any weight. :(

  4. Great job! And I can't believe how sick everyone has been...yuck! You all looked great today, so I'm guessing everyone feels better. I also had a fun chat with your DD3 today. She cracks me up with how grown up she talks! I love it! ;)
