Finally Friday

Well, today there be actually 2 different post!!!!!! I found a "BlogHop" that I might participate in but it will depend on the questions. I will keep you posted on that.

It's Friday and how are YOU doing with your resolutions? I am doing a bit better this week but of course there is always room for improvement. More time in the gym, less stress, less stress eating and more water drinking but of course it is a lot easier to write those things than to actually do them.

I actually have my "Fat" pictures on my wall/bulletin board at work. I will take them home this weekend and see if I can figure out a way to get them posted. They hang on my wall to remind me that "I don't EVER want to go there again". IT IS NOT AN OPTION!!!!!!!!!

I have worked way to hard to go back there again and to think of ALL the clothes that I would have to go to Goodwill and buy back would make me physically sick. When I ran my first 1/2 marathon, I was what I would call TINY compared to what these prior pictures look like. I will never forget going shopping for uniforms with my Mom and trying on a Large......TO BIG!!!! then going to a MEDIUM.....still to big.....and for the first time since 9th grade.....a SMALL ACTUALLY FIT!!!!!!!! It was amazing and my self esteem was as high as a kite. IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!

I have had a baby since then and was at my smallest pre-pregnancy and even with a scheduled C-S came to my 6 week postpartum weighing exactly what I weighed at my first visit. Got married and now have crept up and it is NOT AN OPTION!!!!! So.....2010, we are headed back to that Uniform shop and we WILL BUY SMALL PANTS AGAIN!!!!!!

So with all of that said......We will continue on with the resolutions and I will check in and keep you posted on how we are doing. Just look for the "Side-Bar" updates.

Thanks for stopping by today and by all means......LEAVE A COMMENT!!!!!!!!

Laboring With You,
Doula Mama Pam

Huge congratulations! I'm currently trying to lose weight and have lost over 40lbs since having my eighth child in June 2009. I am aiming to lose another 28lbs. I update my blog every week with my progress on Monday Weigh-In, though this week's is delayed until tomrrow due to the BlogHop for Haiti.
