Me and my coco bean @Kohl's. I fit a size 9!!!
Weightloss this week: 0 lbs.
Total weightloss: 27 lbs.
Waking up today was a little rough for me. I stepped on the scale and I got a little discouraged. I gained 2 lbs. since last sunday. Instead of beating myself up (ok i admit i did a little) i walk/run (or tried to for the most part ~run) 1.25 miles. I felt so much better afterwards but it still lingered in my mind that i gained 2 lbs. How is that possible? Could it be just muscle?? I though about it and i vent to my bff (shannon) and she suggested retail therapy to make me feel better. "Try on some clothes" she says. So me and my little coco bean did. We went to kohl's and then we went to discovery. I decided to try on some jeans. I took 2 pairs a size 11 and a size 9. (i was thinking why the hell not. If i don't fit at least i know where i stand.) I tried on the size 11 and they were perfect. lose and perfect. My coco bean said mama try the next one. So i did and boy was i estatic. Wait better yet I was f***ing happy!! I tried it on and they fit. like a glove. I went from a size 14 to a size 9 in about 4 months. Can u belive it?? All the hard work i've done and all the support i have had from mamavation paid off. I can officially say I'm sexy now and I freaking know it. People who don't think so, i really don't care, because I feel it and it feels good! :) I ended up buying 2 pairs of pants. One size 9 jeans from discovery clothing and size 11 work pants. I even decided to buy a shirt that said "SEXY" on it. The little things in life that make everything worth it.
I have tried to walk more steps each day than the last and even though i haven't on some days i do try to at least get my 10k steps in. My most so far. (see pic below) This week has also been a little rough (but so worth in the end) because we have the 2week challenge going on and also mamavation hazing. I think my biggest challenge will be this coming week. School starts and i will be one busy lady but i know i can do it. I've done it in the past and this won't change it one bit. So 2weekchallenge, mamavation hazing, and school bring it. I am so ready! I just keeping thinking of the outcome and the great feeling that goes along with it.
