McFatty Monday-Two months this week

This week marks two months down for McFatty Mondays.  I am loving the progress so far and you all are keeping me motivated!  Two months ago I felt my worst...I just wanted to crawl in a hole and not show my face.  I was embarrassed to see family and friends because I know they would see how big I had gotten.

I needed to make the change, I needed to save myself from getting any bigger.  I wanted the next time I got pregnant to be a lot smaller so I didn't look and feel very bloated.

When I started I wasn't really thinking a ton about fitness, I knew I would exercise, but never thought I would train for a 5k.  But here I am two months later, about to run 20 minutes straight tomorrow!  I looked back to when I first started running, it turns out I have lost 5.6 lbs since beginning C25K.  I completely recommend it to everyone!  Your body completely transforms!

Yesterday I went out shopping to get a few new things.  It turns out I am down 2 pants sizes!  I was a 14 when I started and now I am down to a 10!  Or at least a 10 in the brand that I got!  And I bought a large shirt...not an XL!  This is huge for someone with a larger upper body.

This is working, and I hope it is working for all of you too!  I am so thankful I made the decision to make this journey keeps me honest and it keeps me going.  Like I said last week...this is a life change!

Here are this week's stats:
Starting weight: 200.8 lbs
Last week: 185.6 lbs
This week: 184.6 lbs
Loss (gain) this week: -1 lbs
Total loss: 16.2 lbs!

16.2 lbs in two months is great!  I am officially 1 lb away from my wedding weight 2 1/2 years ago!  This also means I lost about 6 lbs this month, which I will this point I should make my 40 lb goal by July!  That is one month earlier than I planned!  I know it may not happen, but I think it can.  I know I can even do better than I did this past month, especially with my eating!  So we will see what happens!

I am not going to post goals for this week...just to survive it!  It is my last 4 days of work, plus I have a lot of school I just want to survive it!  I hope everyone had a great weigh in today!


  1. Wow, that's impressive! Way to go! I ran a whole three minutes this morning, but it was very fast! I was trying to catch the school bus, lol. You should very proud of your accomplishment!

  2. Haha! At least it got you running! I used to only run when chased! Anything counts!

  3. Way to go! Your right we could be twins! Awesome on getting down to a size 10 I started out in a 16 my pants are bigger but I haven't yet attempted to see what size I am down to now. (I guess I'm afraid to).
