So if you’ve read from time to time or if in fact you know me then you may know… that I’ve been struggling with my weight.

I’ve always been thin before having children and I never had to really try for it. I just was. I mean I went to gym, I worked out hard but I also smoked, drank and ate a lot of nasty fast food.

But as many of you know you change after becoming a Mother. Not just in who you are and how you think but really physically you are a different woman completely. As all of it is welcomed, the extra pounds that comes with it is NOT.

I’ve read that with each child comes an extra 5 permanent pounds. Wow, if this is true then my Three =15 lbs that will never be removed from my Aging Ever Tired body.

I think I’m going to fight this idea and try and beat the odds of excepting the extra weight. I don’t want to be a Mom that explains that I “just” had a baby when my child is 3. 

So I bit the bullet that I cannot make this change on my own. I cannot get to the gym, I can never seem to work out at home. So I did the one thing I feel I am capable of doing, I joined Weight Watchers online.

So far I’m rockin’ it. I weighed in and…. I lost 4 pounds!!!!
I started at 162 Wednesday April 21st and today I am 158!! Good Bye 160’s!! Never to be seen again. That’s 4 pounds towards my goal of 32 :o)


  1. Congrats!
    You can totally lose those extra baby pounds. I'm 15 lbs lighter than when I had Addison so that's definitely a myth.

  2. Way to go! Keep up the great work!

  3. Woohoo, congratulations! Yes, it is harder to lose the weight after kids because our bodies have changed and we're older. I still looked like I just gave birth when my youngest was almost 4. That's when I decided to do something about it. Two years later--yes, it takes time, commitment, and determination but is so worth it--and I'm at the healthiest weight and smallest size of my life. It can be done. It's just not easy. Props to you!

This little man is my baby in training. He gave me the greatest honor of changing my life and title forever. He made me Mom. He made me important.

It has been a short four years that have blurred past of sword fights, super heroes and laughs.

Johnpaul is a Big Brother ask any one he doesn't take his title lightly.

One of my most favorite of many amazing attributes of Johnpaul is his idea of Honor Love and Family. He is a awesome little boy. I look forward in watching him grow.

Born November 21st 2007 He's my Determined Problem Solver
This guy was worry from within the whom. At week 15 I started to bleed. We were loosing him. It was that day this sweet one even before breathing air taught me one of my most precious life lessons.. patience.

Before I had little but while pregnant with him I was on strict bed rest for 172 days. I was more than worth it.

My image of him was he was the most Determined person.. boy was I right. He will because of this be anything he wants. Greatness is in his future.

Nathaniel is loving, sweet and considerate. He can melt your worst day with his smile.

This little love. He's my last but in no where my least. He was not planned but was very welcome. He was an Anniversary Gift the best kind ever. Christian doesn't talk yet or walk but I can already tell he's a big thinker.

He is always watching. I can't wait to see how his personality unfolds... but at the same time hope he takes his sweet time. He is my baby, my last and I'd like to keep him sdmall for a bit ;o)
