Weekly Weigh In Friday-- Week 13

It's week 13. I had one of my best weigh-ins to date last night! I lost 3.4 lbs this week, after two weeks of no loss and then a gain.... so I was a very happy camper!

I've officially lost the weight equivalent of Rhett... 22.6 lbs! So yes, that means (in a round about way) I have lost a whole person! How exciting!! I asked Bryan last night where it all came from... he thinks it's most noticeable in my face and upper body.
I was excited to wear a tank that I got before I was pregnant with Hudson that I haven't worn since. It's the best feeling to wear old clothes that used to be too small!
Yesterday I picked Bryan up from work to go to lunch with us and he got in the car and said "Wow, I see the girl I dated again". Honestly that's the best compliment I've gotten from him.... I added one of our engagement pics below, what do you think?

Here is what I will tell you... while the girl in the bottom picture was MAYBE 150 lbs, the girl in the top picture, at 180, is much much much happier. I remember thinking I was so "fat" then... now I look back on it and think it's hilarious. I think one thing that I've learned is that MY body created and grew two human beings. That's amazing. And because of that I am choosing to love my body, regardless of the extra flab and stretch marks.

Rhett and I went to one of our favorite little local boutiques yesterday that was a having a half off sidewalk sale. I got all the stuff below for 50% off woo!!! I've been wanting a watch like that, and everyone needs a great chevron scarf! Fall is just around the corner. And I love the little sign, I have it sitting on my desk to remind me to be true to myself.
Then I had a super great mail day because Annie, my coach, sent me the sweetest package full of fun stuff! I also got my shipment of Shakeology and my new Asics running shoes (even thought it's been way too hot to run lately).

I had another night of WW training last night and I really am loving it. I feel like I have the two coolest and most fun jobs!

I am so excited for the weekend. Labor Day weekend is always one of my favorite weekends of the year because my birthday almost always falls on Labor Day weekend.... while my birthday isn't actually until Tuesday, my whole family is coming to spend the long weekend at my parent's lake house. I can't wait to be out on the water and just hang out with them! No one I'd rather spend my birthday with! I'm going to try to stick to my WW points as best I can, but I can tell you that I will be having some dessert on my birthday! :)

Happy, happy Friday friends! Thanks for all the sweet comments on my post yesterday, It's somewhat liberating to be honest about my weight and have it off of my chest! You're all too sweet!!

13 weeks in, 22.6 lbs down, 42.2 to go.

  1. I think you would love Trim Healthy Mamma! You can have your cake and eat it too! A lot of people combine it with their WW points. Good luck you are doing great!

  3. We have the same birthday, but I'm older! And I agree... it is nice to always be able to celebrate Labr Day for it! Wish I had a lake to go to, though!

I love reading your comments so much! I'm sorry for the word verification but I have had an increase in spam comments lately that I am trying to weed out. Thanks so much for reading!
