Wednesday weigh-in

That's it!  This year has been rotten!  I feel like I've been starving since January, and literally, have lost zero pounds.  A couple of weeks ago, I just gave up.  It seems like no matter what I do, following points, or tracking calories, spending hours on the treadmill, nothing works.  So I ate what I wanted, when I wanted and didn't care.  

But the truth is, I care.  I hate the way my body looks and feels right now.  I'm miserable only wearing my fat jeans, and feeling like I need to wear spanx to hide my jiggly belly when I go out in public.  

Back when I was in high school, running on the track team and weighing in at 105, I told myself I'd never get above 120.  That seemed like such a huge amount, and I set that goal knowing that I'd never get there!  Even if I ate cheesecake all day long!  Aahh, the dreams of youth.  Reality, and three babies have brought me to 134 today.  

So there's the big fat truth.  I need to lose 14 pounds to meet my 10 year old goal.  But for this challenge, my goal will be to lose 8 pounds.  That's a little over half of the total weight I need to lose, and I know I can do it.  


  1. i hope you're really short! :) otherwise i can let you borrow some of my jeans!

    seriously though i know it can be frustrating. especially when you compare yourself to who you use to be.

  2. You must be tiny for 134 to be your HIGH weight. BUT, you can do this, I know you can. I, too, have three wee ones (ages 5, 3, and 6 months). I hate hate hate fat jeans. And the muffin top- be gone already! Glad to have you onboard!

  3. A pound is week is doable! You can do it! Welcome to the challenge!

  4. You can do this Erin!! I know you can. After reading your post, my first thought is that it's odd that you lost no weight even though you were trying. I'm not doubting that you tried so hard, but I'm wondering if there's something else going on. Maybe your hormones could be out of whack? Have you spoken to your doctor about it? You might think about it!

    All that said, we are so glad you have joined the Sisterhood! We'll be here to support you as you reach your goal of 8 pounds GONE!

  5. I have no doubts that you'll figure this out and be rid of those 8 pounds! Good luck!
