I Can Not Believe I am Posting This!

I'm nervous to write this.  Once I write this I will be committed.  I've toyed with whether or not to do this and in the end the fear of failure seems like just the right amount of motivation I need to win my battle.  It's a battle I spent my whole life trying to conquer.  I've been successful from time to time but I have yet to be able to claim a full victory.  I bet you guessed the battle I'm referring.... the Battle of the Bulge!

I follow this awesome blog Our Mommyhood and they featured Lisa at This Mommy Works.  Lisa has decided to issue a weight loss challenge, 1 lb at a time, and I've decided to join in.  I am so afraid of not losing an ounce since I have no willpower.  I am hoping that being held accountable for eating like a cow will help me change my ways.  The list is open until April 30th and the challenge starts on May 1st. So if you want to join in the fun then click the button below to read the rules and check out the other brave souls!

1 lb at a time

So, the first step in this challenge is to name the reasons why I joined and what my goals are.  Let's start with why... because I need to lose weight!  Ok, let me be specific... I need to lose 30 lbs.  I am still 20 lbs heavier then I was when I got pregnant and prior to that I had 10 lbs that I could not get rid of.  What can I say... my extra fluff loves me!  

My goals:

  • To condition myself to eat healthy 90% of the time.  Hey, a girl needs a treat once in awhile!
  • To learn and share with my fellow competitors tips, tricks, and motivation
  • To lose 15 lbs by the end of the 8 weeks.
  • To use this challenge as a motivator to actually start training for the 3Day in October.  
FYI:  I was eating Doritos as I typed this post.  Man, do I have a lot of work to do!


  1. Welcome to the challenge!
    Looking forward to seeing you lose that 15 lbs!!!

  2. I'm in the challenge too! I'll be looking forward to your progress :)

    *kudos for admitting to eating the Doritos LOL I got a good laugh (mostly because I can relate, I've been known to watch Biggest Loser while eating a chocolate bar!!)
