Today's the day!

It's official... I have a 3, 2 & 1 year old! November is the month of all my babies birthdays and its also the month I start reflecting on this past year... This year started out hard as we waited for the hubs to get home from his first deployment.  But in between December 2011 and march 2012 I lost 45 lbs! I was well on the way to my 100 lb goal! 
Once the hubs came home life changed dramatically. It was wonderful to have him home but somehow the weight loss stopped.  Way to many ice creams, bags of chips and everything else bad along the way!  We have both gained weight!

In july I started a biggest loser challenge with some friends and it just didn't go as planned! Over the past 6 months I have been up and down in my weight and here I sit today 13 lbs more than I weighed when my hubs came home! My best friend is getting married in 4 weeks and my brides maid dress does NOT fit! 

Along my struggle I found Brittany from the Denny Buzz and she began talking to me about doing this 24 day challenge!  Today I started the challenge and am very excited! 
Every morning has a fiber drink that was, well... Awful... But worth it and i made it through lol. The spark energy drink was amazing and I feel really great! 

This is another beginning... One where I look at the past year, a little frustrated knowing that if I had done better I'd already be at my goal weight! Instead I'm 13 lbs back! My goal through this next 24 day challenge is to lose 20 lbs.  

Here is the link to the info post on the challenge! Check it out! It's going to be epic! 

I will share more throughout this week and of course over the whole challenge!  Excited to be getting back on track!! Thanks so much Brittany! You guys are awesome!!!!

  1. Good luck girl! I started running again today. It's been almost two months since I ran my half marathon and I can just tell since I hadn't been running that my clothes fit more snug.
    So NOT FAIR ~ So..Here's to us! Good luck to both of us.
    Happy Birthday to your babies!!


  2. Good luck and what a fun birthday month! ;)

  3. Wow! All 3 in November? My only "gloat" is the day span between them: 952 days. 952 days from The Big One to Ms. Middle and 952 from Ms. Middle and Little Baby.

  4. 3, 2, and 1! Hats off to you! Lol my husband and I are going back and forth on when to try for number you like having them close together?!

  5. I props to you mama. I don't know how you keep it together with three littles ones. Btw my bridesmaids dress didn't fit for my best friends wedding. It was devastating and even though I lost a bit of weight I still needed to have the seams taken out of the dress.

  8. WOW! 3, 2, and 1?!! Bless you! LOL. They are VERY adorable too :-)
    I can't wait to see how you do on your 24 day challenge. I know you'll lose those pounds. I'm your newest follower from F+F blog hop...nice to "meet" you. Thanks for co hosting it too


  9. Good luck with the weight-loss!! I've recently lost about 15 pounds after years of never being able to lose weight. The trick for me was to monitor what I ate. I tend to snack a lot. I think your 24-day challenge will go great! It helps when you have something to follow and keep you accountable!

  10. Your kids are absolutely adorable! November is a great month for birthdays--it's my birthday month too :)
