Did you lose some weight?

So I have been feeling down on myself lately because I have been stuck at the same weight for some time now. Vacations and camping also do not help with eating good!!!! I don't know why I give myself such a hard time because I have come a long way. Todays blog is just about me. I was a fat teenager and I don't care if anyone says I wasn't, because I was! I weighed about as much in 8th grade as I did 9 months pregnant with Kyleigh. I remember boys on the bus making fun of me and calling me jiggle,jiggle. That was also part of middle school I am sure, stupid boys. In high school I started to lose weight. I went to 2 years of high school up in Idaho and 2 years in Utah. At the end of my senior year I was finally happy with my weight. Then came college and dating and EATING OUT!!! Then I met Lance and we got pregnant with Jaxon. I put on over 50 lbs with him. After I had him I tried to lose the weight, and it seemed to be coming off slowly but surely. Then we decided to try to get pregnant again. Jaxon was 9 months when I got pregnant with Kyleigh. My poor body! Well when there's a will there's a way! After I had Kyleigh I was determined to loose some weight. So I have done it! I have passed my initial goal, but have made new ones. I hope to meet them by the end of this year. I just want to take the time to brag because I have worked really hard. So I am sorry if this offends anyone. Hopefully I can give you inspiration.

As of last summer, after already having Kyleigh I have lost about 30 lbs. I like to look at the inches more then the weight though! I really don't want to sound like I am bragging, I am just being proud of myself for the moment.

I have lost; chest 5"
left arm 2 1/4 "
right arm 1 3/4"
waist 6 1/2"
hips 6 3/4"
left thigh 4 3/4"
right thigh 4 3/4"

total: 31 1/2"

Ok now here is the before and after picture. I was pregnant with Jaxon here. The other isn't the greatest picture, but I didn't want to post the same one from the other Vegas pictures. I weighed over 60 more lbs then I do now. I always am giving myself a hard time, but congrats to me! I am the smaller then I ever was in high school!

Thanks for reading!

Wow you look amazing! No stretch marks? LUCKY!!! Even if I lose all the weight I want to, I still have ugly stretches...permanent proof of pregnancy! Keep up the good work! What did you do, if I may be so bold to ask?

Allyssa said...

How did I loose the weight? I watched what I ate, and I did eat! That helps!! Don't skip meals, just make sure you are eating good things. I drink a lot of water and the only other liquid I drink is fat free milk. I try to watch the carbs and eat good sources of protein. Don't forget the fruits and veggies too. I also have a lot of work out videos. Just going to the gym running on the treadmill doesn't do it for me. I mix up my work out videos. I have aerobics, pilates, yoga, and I have a couple of different ab videos. I also try to get as much sleep as I can, which gets difficult sometimes. One major bonus was I breatfed my little girl til she was one. That helps burn more calories, but not a good diet plan.
