Passing Milestones

I'm not writing this post to toot my own horn.  Believe me, I worked for this.


And so can anyone. 

It's all about priorities.  How much do you want something?  Are you willing to give up things now for what you want later?  If not, that's okay.  If the birthday cake is worth it, do it.  If you're going to feel bad about yourself after and wish you hadn't, don't.  

I'm at the point where I want to be in shape for the October show so much that I don't have cheat meals, treat meals, or even bites of treats.  I know that in four months I will not remember how those peanut butter bars at my mom's house tasted (and believe me, they looked good!) but I will see the results of my will power.  

Seven months ago I had just had Sophie and if I would have worn anything more than maxi skirts and maternity clothes during December, I probably would have worn a size 14-16.  

Yesterday I bought a size 4.  And they fit.  

Do I still have cellulite?  Yes.  But I normally don't ever wear that size so I call it a win.

And I surpassed another mark.  I dropped into the 130's.  My pre-pregnancy weight was 135. 

However, it's not about the number on the scale.  I only weigh myself once a week (sometimes twice) or I tend to obsess.  

What about you?  Are you hitting your summer goals?  I'd love to hear about it!


  1. So after losing 35 pounds and spending two hours a day in the gym for four years, I've gained it all back. Just under a year ago we moved and I was needed the break for my fitness life. Sadly I took a very long break and am almost the same person I was before every losing a pound. I'm trying to get my mind back where it needs to be as I think that's the hardest part to staying in shape. Your blog post about wanting it bad enough is helping me today get through the day. Thanks!

  2. Good job!! Congrats on the new pants! You are going to be rocking come October!!

  3. I've thrown the scale away for a month. I am concentrating on eating enough and exercise. Hopefully, I will see some results in July! So proud of you and all you are doing.


  4. I wasn't doing so hot earlier in the summer between vacations & parties but I've done great this week with food & workouts! Congrats to you!
