I started this blog four years ago with one goal in mind – to get to a healthy weight. In that time, my life has changed a lot, and my blog’s focus has gone all over the place.
First, I went a little overboard with marketing products in exchange for free stuff. Then my two children were both diagnosed with autism, and my blogging became much less consistent. Eventually, like a lot of people who spend too much time online, I became obsessed with politics – conservative in my case. But, now that it looks like my political party is going to nominate a game show host for president, I’ve become disillusioned once again – probably for the best.
So, I’m going back to the drawing board. Let’s lose some weight!
I know what works – I always lose weight when eating a Whole 30 diet and working out – so that’s what I’m going to go back to. I’ve lost 60 pounds since starting this blog four years ago – and I have a lot more to go. But here’s where I’ve been:
Jan 2012: 266 (Troy was born!)
July 2013: 216
April 2014: 260 (Violet was born!)
February 2016: 206
As you can see, it’s been a circuitous journey, but I’m heading in the right direction. So, it’s time to start going full boar!
First goal: 200 (I’ll have lost all my baby weight!)
Second goal: 185 (I’ll fit in my wedding dress!)
Third goal: 160 (this might be my final goal – it’ll depend on my waist measurement, which should be less than half your height – 30.5 inches in my case)
Are you trying to lose weight too? Get healthy? Leave me a comment below if so – we can help each other stay motivated!
