My Loss is My Gain

Today I have decided to change my life. I had a baby 7 months ago and during my pregnancy I gained 80lbs. I kept telling myself and everyone around me that once I had the baby I would start working out and lose the weight but I didn't. Right after I had my son I lost 20lbs. About 4 months later I decided I would start going to the gym, and I did 3 times! It did nothing. About a month later I decided before my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary party in November I would lose the whole 80lbs.

I started seeing a weight dr on 2.24.09. I took appetite supprecents, I got a b12 shot once a week, I followed a 1800 calorie diet, and I worked out 3-5 days a week. In 2 months I had only lost 12lbs. And 3 weeks in a row I stayed the same.

I recently came across P90X program that everyone is talking about. I have seen some amazing transformations on youtube as well as talking to some moms on a website I belong to. They all say that it does amazing things and they lose the weight and get in shape. This blog is for me to keep everything logged, show my progress, get motivation and maybe motivate someone else.

My current weight is 215lbs.

My measurements are::

-waist- 45in,
-chest- 45in.
-thigh- 26in.
-arm- 13.5in.
-butt- 49in.

Pant Size--> 16-18
Shirt Size--> L-XL


mini-GOAL:: 160lbs
