Month 2 Pictures and Week 8 Weigh In!!

So this past week was not at all what I expected it to be.  In my last post I talked about how organized and schedule oriented I was going to be, well after about two days of doing good, that all went out the window.  When you are the mom and your child gets sick, it seems like everything stops so you can take care of them.  Sunday night we ended up taking Logan into the Dr with a 103.6 fever.  After paying lots of money and getting no answers we set out for a super fun week of, fevers, coughing, and vomiting.  Oh and also lack of sleep, orneryness, and irritability.  And if that wasn't bad enough I had the opportunity of getting sick with Logan for a couple of days, super fun!!  So needless to say, I didn't get much exercising and other basic housework done.  I was a little nervous to get on the scale this morning, but was pleasantly surprised to see that I had lost 5.4lbs this week, for a total of 42.5lbs.   It was probably just all water weight from being dehydrated, but I will take it where I can get it. (Yes I know that is not a healthy way to lose weight)  Next week is where it will really show.  I also lost another 3 inches, for a new total of 26.5 inches lost. 

So now for the next big reveal.  Not a big difference, with only 13lbs lost this month, but you can still tell a difference, especially from the originals.  I did have to retire the jeans from the first two pictures and happy to say that I now fit into several pairs of pants that didn't fit me 2 months ago. 

                       Starting                          Month 1                           Month 2

I really am feeling greater and greater every day.  And get excited when I run into someone I have not seen in awhile and they notice that I have lost weight.    I know that is not what it is all about, 
but it sure does help.  
SOOO excited for this next week, but you will have to wait for my next post to find 
out what I have going on.

You are doing a great work....for yourself, and teaching your children how to take care of themselves. You are looking great and I'm sure it felt really great to go "shopping in your closet" for smaller clothes.
