Progress Thus Far...

As of this morning, I am down 20 pounds!! I can't believe it! I am so excited!!
A few people have requested some pics, but like I said, I didn't think to take actual "before" pics. SO, I found a couple pics we had made at the beach back in August, about 6 months ago. Believe it or not, that was pretty much the same weight I started at several weeks ago. I lost 30 of the FORTY-FIVE pounds I gained during pregnancy in less than 2 weeks and lost a few more over a couple more weeks, then pretty much remained stagnant for MONTHS! (won't let that happen next time...which is a long way away!)
So, here are the "before" pics....

And here are some pics Joseph took today, 20 pounds later!

The pocket on the shirt doesn't really help, I know.

I know you can't get the full effect, because I cut my head off(trust me, you'd thank me if you saw me without my face on! HA!). BUT, I hope you can at least tell a little difference. You can see the difference in my face, but like I said, you ain't seeing it without makeup. ;-)

I will definitely take more pics when I hit my goal, which I've changed to at least 15 more pounds. After I hit the goal, I really want to start working out and toning up! I'm just so glad to be fitting into clothes I haven't been able to wear in a LONG time! I feel so much better...physically, mentally, all of it. I'm actually looking forward to warmer weather this year!! :)

I hope y'all have a great weekend.


  1. Keep up the great work, Lauren! I stepped on the scale for the first time in 6 months last night... I'm 5 lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight again! (I'd hit that while I was breastfeeding, but when I quit, the lbs came marching back on) My son is almost one, so you've got time on your side!
    Best wishes,
