10 weeks!!

So today marks 10 weeks back on my journey and I am feeling great still. I am more determined than ever. I may not be working out as long as I did back when I didn't have a job but I am doing what I can to keep myself moving. Yesterday I spent all day spring cleaning. I cleaned out and organized our garage all morning and then in the afternoon I went over to my parents house and went through several totes I had clothes stored in back from 2011/2012. There were clothes in there that I was wearing when I got down to my smallest but then I got pregnant and wanted to keep them for when I could fit back in them. Then there were brand new clothes in there that I bought on clearance thinking I will fit in this someday after baby. Well they have just sat there for over 5 years now. Yesterday I got rid of an entire SUV trunk full of boxes of clothes. Mostly mine. I gave away 2/3 of what I had and only kept things I just really wanted to still wear or that I never got a chance to ever and am still hoping to someday fit. It was very therapeutic to go through and see those old things. I had good memories with some and bad with others. I got rid of some that I loved simply because I felt like I got plenty of good use of them and wanted to pass them to someone else. I am trying to stop hoarding so much. My husband thinks I never throw anything out. lol. Well last night I gave away 6 boxes and two very large trash bags full of clothes. When I saw the lady I met up with to give them to had brought two teenage girls with her to help load up the back of her SUV I knew they would get a lot of use out of most of those clothes. I told her just to regift anything that she didn't want and she plans to do just that. In scale news, I have reached a new low!

I felt stuck in the 270s for so long all of February so its great to see myself coasting on down in to the 260s finally. As of March 1st I am down 5.2 lbs and we still got more than half the month to go so I am feeling really successful right now. My mom even noticed my losses on Friday night when I saw her she said I looked good and that is when I mentioned that I was down 30 lbs. My husband says he notices a huge difference too and is very proud of me. I can even see it in the mirror myself. I am looking forward to summer and fitting back in to some old swimsuits so that I can swim some of this weight off, too!


  1. Oh man, getting out of a "decade" feels so good! Nice job!

  2. Hi! I just wanted to check in and see how you’re doing. You’re journey has been so inspiring to me, and relateable in so many ways. After reading so many of your posts, I feel like we’re old pals from highschool or something, and I find myself rooting for you! Hope all is well!

    1. Thank you. That made me smile. :) Nice to see a comment here just after getting off work on a Friday afternoon. I've been meaning to post the obligatory New Years post anyways... thanks for the shove. lol.
