Crooked Eyebrow » 2009 » November


One year ago as we all sat in different cities and complained about our weight, ideas about a sisterhood where thrown around. A sisterhood of what exactly? Several emails later the sisterhood of shrinking jeans came to life. Okay maybe not that quick, but here it is one year later and it is beyond anything we imagined.

I remember starting the sisterhood with hopes of losing weight for my 30th birthday back in May. I wanted to start my new decade looking all hot and fit. Did I? NOPE. Little did I know that the first little weight loss I had with the sisterhood would kick my ovaries back into gear. At the end of January I found out I was expecting after several years of infertility.

SURPRISE!! I was back on the road to weight gain. With that said I had to take a break from the sisterhood way sooner than ever planned. I tried to keep in touch as my belly grew, but I always read and followed what was going on at the ‘hood. What I saw was wonderful and the friendships that have been made here blew me away. Well actually they made me want to get back in the game and fast.

So here I am 6 weeks postpartum and I feel like in this year I have come full circle. I came wanting to lose weight, lost it, went through pregnancy (had a gorgeous girl) and now have to lose weight all over again. Now is the time and I can’t wait to share my 2nd attempt of my weight loss journey, because the sisterhood is the best place to do so.

Here is a history of my numbers: Last year I weighed about 218# I started shrinking jeans last November at 213# I got down to 198#

Went to 200# and was pregnant

Delivery date I was 234# 2 weeks postpartum I was 211.5#

last week I was 210#

My goal is to get down to 200# by the end of this challenge.

better yet…I am putting my 6 week postpartum photos up too. It’s my hope that I can come back in 6 weeks and look even better and that is going to be my fuel to keep myself motivated.

Well there you have it, I think I might puke if I re-think my decision to post these, so here goes nothing…
