Learning to dance in the rain.

Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass- it’s about learning to dance in the rain.

Week 32 weigh in

New weekly weigh in video and update

Week 30 weigh in

Where have I been???

I’m so sorry I have been neglecting my blog! It’s been a challenge lately to keep everything up to date.

I have been updating the youtube videos, so I wil paste them all here, but I am alive, and doing well!

I started a new challenge for myself… I will paste the link or video here so you can read more about it.

I promise I will update everything here soon!



Week 24 weigh in

201.2! I am down 3.4 pounds this week! HECK YES, I am BACK in the game!

Thanks to P90X, my new bodybugg digital display, and drinking over a gallon of water every day! Next week I’ll finally be back in ONEderland!

The night before weigh in…

T’was the night before weigh in, and all though the house… I thought I could come up with a cute story to go here, but I’m too tired tonight. I’ll work on it 😉

Well, tomorrow is supposed to be my do-or-die weigh in day. The one where I see a good number and everything is magically better. It’s not going to happen. Not this week.

I didn’t do bad this week… I wish I could say I did, it would justify what’s been going on, but I haven’t, really.

Tonight when I weighed myself before getting on email, I was 207.9. Earlier in the week, I was 209.6… Yeah, I was freaking out. Made THIS video for the YouTube channel.

I took my YT friends’ advice and drank water like crazy today – over 140 ounces to be exact. Plus I walked to and from school with the kids, did lots of housework and ended my night with push-ups and sit-ups.

I think I am going to get checked up on everything next week if the scale does not start showing better numbers. I am going to measure tomorrow to see how the inches are… if I can find my measuring tape!

I am getting pretty frustrated. It was not this hard for those first 20 weeks, why does it have to be so hard now?

Look for a weekly weigh in post tomorrow.

Hello friends and family!

Yes, I have gone public.

For many of you, this is the first time you’re seeing this blog and reading about this journey. It may be shocking to some, exciting to others, and perhaps inspiring.

Thank you for your support and encouragement. I am happy to share with all of you, and look forward to hearing from more of you in the comments!

I must share with you though, I am nervous. I have never-ever shared my weight with most of you, and surely have not allowed any of you to see the whole picture of my struggle.  This can be very ugly at times.

Take some time to catch up on it all. I started at week 1 or 2 back in April, so it might take you a while. I am of course open to questions, comments and ideas. I am not open to negativity or criticism. “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”. Constructive criticism is okay, but I think you know what I mean.

Thank you for taking time to read this, and I hope you’ll stick around for a while.

Love, Lauren aka Fat2FitMama
