Rayanna's weight loss journal

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm really not sure I want to do this because I don't always do what I should but there in lies the reason to do it. I had gestational diabetes with my last pregnancy (my littlest one is 6 months old) and I still had 40 pounds from my previous pregnancy on when I got pregnant with him. I know I need to lose this weight by my baby's 1st birthday and I have to get serious about it now. I'm 45 so that makes it that much harder. However I'm gonna give this a try and see if it makes me more accountable.

I'm starting at 185 pounds and need to lose 45 pounds to be at my pre-pregnancy weight from my 2 1/2 year old. I've told myself that when I hit that half way mark I'll get something done with my hair (thinking layering and maybe going blonde again). Anyway, here we go!

I'm feeling quite a bit better today. I walked for about 35 minutes with 2 bursts of running and I got my weights done. My weight was at 167.5 this morning. I don't think I will set any more weight goals for the short term. I'll just keep working towards my big goal and get there when I get there.

Well it's been about 7 months since I posted in this journal. After I last posted I got really busy with home improvements and life in general. I lost down to 164 and then didn't weigh myself for a while and ended up gaining back up to 177. I've been working hard on calorie intake and eating closer to the clean side. I was back to a little under 170 this morning. I am not getting too excited though. I wasn't feeling good yesterday and didn't eat much. I've been lifting my weights when I can and have been doing a little Zumba with YouTube videos. The boys and I are all suffering with allergy and asthma crud and plan to get more active when it passes.

I'm actually feeling pretty good today, coughing aside. At least the cough is productive now. I want to do some Zumba and lift weights today but I'm not sure if the boys are gonna let me. Ray Harvey is still running a low grade fever and neither one of them feels great. They are both extra needy right now. I don't feel like just sitting around all day so hopefully I can get some things done. Oh and I was a little over 170 this morning. It's sad that it has taken me 2 years to lose a whopping 15 pounds.

I was 170 this morning. I got a whole 7 minutes of Zumba in yesterday before my whiney 2 year old needed to be held. We lost another furry family member last night so I didn't sleep much. Hopefully I can get some exercise tomorrow.
