LilySlim - Weight loss

6/26/2013

Wednesday Weigh-in

So this week was a loss of 2.2 lbs
Putting me at 58.6 lbs total for 13 weeks.
While I'm still disappointed in how little it is..I am still thankful it was a loss.
So far I have managed not to gain anything.
Start weight- 321.4 lbs
Current weight- 262.8 lbs

I stopped counting calories as much as I did to begin with and I think that is what is causing some of the issue.
So I think I'll be doing it again.
I've realized I take a bite of the kids snacks or food here and there and I'm pretty damn sure
that adds up throughout the day.
So back to making sure I am completely on track.

Oh my goodness did we all have fun Saturday!

They did AWESOME!
I am so excited to do this again soon.

A bit of a catch up

Sunday I go my dad to go on another walk with me and the boys. I really wish he'd do it more often. 
He could benefit from losing quite a bit of weight as well. We went to the park and walked about 3 miles.
We took one of the trails we hadn't been on yet. It lead to an old rock house. It was AWESOME. The kids LOVED it, I thought it was really neat, and my dad liked it as well. He really struggled with our walk though. I think part of that was because he ate junk food before we left. I had a protein bar and some vanilla roasted almonds. I think the kids would have been happy to play round the rock house all day. We saw some snakes "swimming" in the creek. I know there are going to be snakes but it creeps me out still.

After we left the park we headed to the store because I needed to get two things. So I get the two things and we head home..I started making dinner for my dad for Father's Day and go to look up something on my phone. I looked all over and couldn't find my phone. It looks like I somehow left it at the store and now it's gone. I got Sprint to "track" it and it's no where near the store. Soo someone picked it up and took it. Which is fine..My # has a restriction on it now and can't be used until I reactivate it. My phone was cracked (the screen busted), it barely charged. So someone made off with a piece of shit phone. The only thing that I am sad about with losing my phone is the picture I had are now gone..there were pictures of my kids I hadn't uploaded yet =(

We are in the process of planning a family camping trip. We found a great campground in Cherokee, NC.  We'll be gone July 4th-7th. It's not a long trip but it's enough. The boys have never been camping before and they're extremely excited. We've been shopping to make sure we have the things we need to take with us. They're having fun picking out their own stuff to take. I can't wait. I love camping and I really think the boys are going to love it as well! I'm excited to take them fishing and on walks to see the waterfalls.

I still need to add more exercise into my daily stuff. I walk close to every day, I go swimming with the boys quite a bit. But as I'm losing weight it seems like the rounded out gut I had is now turning into a big floppy mess. Maybe trying to work on toning my stomach would help? I'm not really sure. I just know I don't like it!
I also need to work on more muscles in my arms. I have terrible arm strength.

New size =)

  I took the boys, my parents, and my little sister on a 2 mile walk today. I know it's not a lot but for my dad it seems to be (and it would have been a lot for me almost 3months ago) We had a good time and saw some baby snakes..thank goodness we didn't see any bigger ones or I probably would have FREAKED out.

   I am proud to say..I bought a new bathing suit today...and it was a size 20! I've now gone from a 28 (if there really is such size as 28) to a 20...that is awesome. I tried on some shorts in a 20 as well and those fit too. I can't wait to be in smaller sizes but I am happy with the progress I have made this far. Going down 4 sizes in under 3 months is awesome to me.
