Take it off Monday | Week 8

Medifast | Week 8
Okay, I'm just going to come out and say this because I'm so freaking excited...

I LOST 3 POUNDS!!!

Such a difference from last week {and even the week before that} where I seemed to be stuck at the same weight. Well I'm happy to say that I've finally crossed that hurdle and I'm so close to reaching my 2nd goal of 20 pounds. I can almost smell my new jeans ;)

So, how about a picture? {Taken Saturday after Steph's baby shower/spa day!!}
That shirt? I haven't worn since before I had Carter! EEEKKK!
{Linking up with Stepping Out Saturday, because... well, I actually went OUT ;}

Speaking of clothes, um? None of mine fit. I'm so use to buying new clothes for the exact opposite reason, so I'm not quite sure what to do with myself. I'm excited that I actually need to buy clothes for a GOOD reason. I'm losing weight! Spring clothes, here I come!

Today, I sit at 1 pound less than the weight I was before I had Carter. Actually, because I never owned a scale {until recently}, I weigh 1 pound less than I did at my 7 week appointment when I was pregnant with Carter. Still? So awesome.

I feel really good. I got so many compliments this weekend, and it makes everything so worth it. I'm well on my way to reaching my end goal, and I really would LOVE to get there before Brynn's first birthday party on May 21st. But since that's 4 short weeks away and I'm averaging between 2 - 2.5 pounds a week, it looks like I'll "only" lose about 8-10 more pounds before the party. That would put me at -25 to -27lbs by Brynn's 1st birthday.

That? Is pretty amazing.

It makes me want to cry just thinking about it {both the weight loss and the fact that my baby will be ONE in under a month.}

Set-Backs: Easter was a bit difficult, especially since we went to not one, but TWO fabulous dinners yesterday. I tried my best to stay away from the mac-n-cheese and I'm happy to say that.... well, I didn't eat as much of it as I usually do. ;)

Exercise: Jillian, you whore. Waking me up at 5:30am three times a week and making me do your 30 day shred. But I love you for it! =)
