5%, Ya Baby.

If you direct your attention to the right of my blog you will find a weight tracker. A new addition as of yesterday. Don't be alarmed I am not only trying to lose 15 pounds, that won't even make a dent in the work I have ahead of me. My first goal for WW is 5% of my body weight which is 15 pounds.

I have decided to try and take it 10 pounds at a time (but my goal with WW is 5%). Overall goal is 120 pounds. You totally saw that right. This is a jaw-dropping moment first weigh in was 283 pounds. Ugh, my honest thought of that number is disgust. It's hard to not be completely negative when you see a number like that. How did I let it get this bad?

So I have broken this number down into mini-goals, which I will celebrate and not think about the HUGE number that lies ahead.

You'll also notice that I added some blogs that I stalk for motivation. I have to read these everyday in order to stay motivated. You should check them out if you need motivation for any area of your life. They are inspiring and keep me hopeful.

Now I am off to the Pediatrician for Hanna's wellness shots (I hate these days). There is something wrong about holding your child down so she can get poked with needles. That'll teach her.


  1. We stalk the same blogs and I saw your comment. You are awesome for starting this journey. You can do this and I can't wait to hear about your progress.

  2. Thanks for reading Rene! The more people that read, the more motivation it gives to succeed!

  3. I ran today with two kids on a bike and baby in a stroller. it was hot outside too!! it was a disaster but Im glad I went. thanks for motivating me

  4. You are so right about thinking of this in mini goals. When I was in the thick of WW, I always focused on the next decade and when I'd "lose" a point. And every pound lost is a victory.

  5. Thanks Kimberly! Your journey was part of my inspiration!
