Weigh In Wednesday

Good Morning people! I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas! My little family sure did! I guess Santa thought I was good this year because I got a Fitbit One!!

 I also reached my 10 pound loss mark and saw this on the scale this morning!

I also have some progression pics for ya ;) I am loving the comparison and progress I can see! Even though it is a slow process I am actually seeing results! Such motivation to keep on going!! Let's make 2013 our year ladies!

Weigh In Wednesday

So I decided that for me small steps and small changes will lead to big changes and big results! I have been slacking really bad on working out and until I get my fitbit and can drag my ass up at the butt crack of dawn I will focus on food and water. I have been drinking my water like it's my job! I have started really paying attention to portion control and listening to my body when it's full, not my head telling me to keep eating. Huge step for this girl, ladies. The small changes I made this past week lead to some pretty great results for me. Plus, losing all the water weight from TOM last week helped ;) So I won't make you wait any longer.

Yes! That's right! 248.8 equal 3.6 pounds down from last week! One pound away from my first 10 pound loss!! Bye Bye 250's FOREVER!!!! This is the biggest loss I've seen so far since I started in October. Slacker much? Yes I have been but with this feeling I have right now I think I wanna keep it forever! Here's to hoping next week will be another loss even though Christmas is next Tuesday. I don't know what tomorrow will bring, but today..... Nobody can wipe this smile off my face!!!

FitBit for Christmas, Anyone?

My hubby told me he is getting me a FitBit One for Christmas! YAY! During the day, it tracks your steps, distance, calories burned, and stairs climbed. Come nightfall, it measures your sleep cycle, helps you learn how to sleep better, and wakes you in the morning. This is great for me because one of the reasons I stopped trying to get up early to workout in the morning is because my hubby always complained that my alarm woke him up and he wasn't able to fall back to sleep. Especially the days I would turn it off and go back to sleep myself and not get up! LOL The FitBit will vibrate on my wrist to wake me up so it will not wake anyone else. How cool is that? I am so excited, who woulda thought I would be excited about getting something like this for Christmas? This time last year I wouldn't have thought twice about this. "Fat girl" Shawna was still in full swing. Although I started "trying" to diet in April of this year  and didn't really get serious about it until October. I refuse to waste another year being unhealthy, obese, and uncomfortable in my own skin! I will do something about it this year! This is my year, I can feel it. My goal is to be 100 lbs. lighter OR at my goal weight (107 lbs. lighter) by my 30th birthday October 15th 2013!! Too big of a goal for 10 1/2 months away? Probably so but I am going to try my damnedest to get there!

Monday Mantra

Hi! Yes, I know I have been MIA the past week (almost 2 weeks). The flu junk hit my house hard and my two little girls and I were sick. The hubby got it last and is still sick. Letmejusttellyou that shit is NOT fun!! I have not worked out in two weeks and trying to get back into that routine is so hard. Now that I feel better I just want to start back where I left off with Turbo Fire! I love that shit! Working on the food aspect of my weight loss and it is getting better little by little. I am SO close to kissing the 250's goodbye and my 10 pound loss mark I can taste it! Hopefully I will see 249 on Wednesday and the ten pound mark of 247 next week! This is my mini goal and I plan on working my ass off to get there because let's face it the number on the scale consistently going down really gets me headed in the right direction more than I thought it would! Now that I am not gaining and losing the same 5 pounds I am starting to see the bigger picture. Joined a little challenge called "The last loser standing" and as long as I maintain or lose every week I stay in. If I gain even .1 I am OUT. This is going to be keeping me accountable during the holidays and I love the idea. This starts on Wednesday so I will be posting my starting weight for the challenge and every Wednesday weigh in after that as usual :) Have a good day Hookers!

AND Today's Monday Mantra is:
