Sometimes you just need some accountability

July 8, 2014

It seems there is only a couple people that read my blog but that's alright.  Putting this out onto the wide world of the internet will hopefully keep me more accountable to my goals!

I want to lose weight like you wouldn't believe but I want to maintain my milk supply so instead of cutting calories I'm going to be more intentional about what I eat; trying to hopefully make better choices.  I am also going to strive for 30 minutes of activity a day.  I started on Sunday with making a healthier choice for breakfast, lunch and dinner and walking around the block with Liam for 30 min (yes it took me 30 min to walk a mile, but hey I was putting one foot in front of the other).

So here I am starting out and trying to put one foot in front of the other!

So I'm starting out at 185lb, the heaviest I have ever been (other than right before Liam was born)
I'm not so much concerned with the 'weight' as getting healthy and being strong.  So when I get a few minutes and stop being embarrassed I will post my measurements because I think they are a better indicator of health than the number on the scale

This is me excited to start losing weight!

  1. Good for you! I need to lose weight as well. I'm the heaviest I have been at 160. Would like to lose 20-30!

  2. You could always look into the paleo lifestyle. I had too do this while nursing my son because of all of his dietary intolerances. He would break out into a rash if I ate dairy or gluten. It was hard because it was a huge lifestyle change but in the end I lost lots of weight, maintained a nice robust milk supply and really just felt better because I was eating so much healthier.

    Just a thought! I do think you look great though for just having a baby!

  3. Posting stuff is great for accountability. Taking some bathing suit shots (if even for just you) every 2-4 weeks is also a really great motivator and helps to see progress. GL Elizabeth!
