the Shred

For the past 2 weeks I have been doing Jillian's 30-day shred. I have missed a couple days, but I have been extremely diligent with my calories. I actually have only lost one lb, but I can definitely feel a difference in the way things fit and the way I look. Very small differences, but I am not stopping until I reach my goal of at least 125ish. Last year I got down to 136 and it's crept back up slightly since then. Bummer, I know. BUT, I am extremely motivated and I am definitely making even more of a lifestyle change than I have in the past and not deterring from that. I am extremely motivated because a. summer is coming around. & b. I cannot confirm nor deny there may be a huge wedding for one of my favorite persons EVER coming up in the next 7 months that I'm not sure I'm at liberty to discuss, but I need to look fabulous nonetheless!

I've been in a cycle for a long time of losing weight, then gaining a small amount back, then I lose even more weight, then I gain a small amount back. I am definitely not pushing the 180 like I used to. Yes, you read correctly, 180. I liked dessert and coke when I was pregnant and not pregnant. What can I say? I actually gained alot in between babies 1 & 2 and then of course with 2 I gained even more. I was almost 190 the day I had her. OHMYGOODNESS! LOL

Anyway, I like sharing because many of us ladies share the same struggles, especially if you have had kids or even if you haven't. I'm not going to share my weight, like I normally do, but I am going to keep you posted on my slow journey from time to time. Maybe share new recipe's I try and so on. Hope everyone has a great rest of the week!

I just (6 months ago *wink*) had my second baby. I am back to the pre baby weight, but it's awful. I also bought the 30 day shred and haven't brought myself to do it. I keep telling myself "Oh, I'll start tomorrow" and still haven't. Thank you for posting this! Maybe tomorrow will be the day I start! =)
