Working On My Weight

After having pretty good success with losing weight in April, I went back to my old eating habits and gained much of it back.

On August 9th, I decided to start really working on my weight again. I had been feeling tired and out of shape and unhealthy. I was up 14 lbs from the weight I was when we moved to TN and 27 lbs from the weight where I feel good about myself.

I’ve worked really hard and been able to stick with it for a little over 4 weeks now and have lost 9.8 lbs. Of course, the weeks where I had the biggest loss were the first two weeks. It’s slowed considerably since to about  1 lb a week.  I have about 17 lbs to go.

Here are my “before” and “during” photos.



These are not the best photos, but they will do :-). The first one was around the time I started and the second one was taken August 26 (two weeks ago). I’m down a few more pounds since, but I don’t have a new photo right now. I can feel and see a difference. Some of the picture difference is due to the fact that in the second photo, I’m actually wearing a more fitted t-shirt. It is nice to see a distinction between my chest and my stomach in the photos.

I would love to be at my goal weight by New Year’s. I’m not sure how realistic that is with the holidays in there. I feel motivated though.

  1. Way to go! I just took some pictures this week too… it’s so nice to be able to look at those pictures and remind yourself that you’re making progress on the days that you feel like you aren’t. 🙂 At least it is for me! Keep up the awesome work!

  2. You’re on the right track, Amy. Continue with all the veggies and fruit and lots of water. Keep chasing the kids! You are amazing!
