{weightloss wednesday...

Okay, just for today "wishlist wednesday" is going to be taken over by "weightloss wednesday".
Ella will be two next week and I gained ALOT of weight when I was preggers. Yep, I'm one of those girls who pees on the stick and instantly gains weight. I'm not saying they're not worth, it I'm just sayin it's DAMN hard getting it to go away!
So, here we go.... I'm gonna put it all out there...

This was me 21 days before Ella was born...I was around 210 the day she arrived...

To be honest, up until the summer of 2011 I wasn't doing much of anything about my weight. I hated how much I weighed and what size pants I wore but I just didn't have the motivation to do anything about it.
I slowly started running. For real, the first time I ran {the whole way} to the back of our ground {which is about 1/4 of a mile} I was so freakin excited! It was pathetic how much I was out of shape.

June 2011...the Race for the Cure...around 170 lbs...
{I didn't run the whole thing without stopping, but I did run more than what I thought I could!}

I also joined our YCMA in October of 2011. That was HUGE with helping me through the winter. I lost 8" in 12 weeks {over Christmas!}. Since then I have logged over 117 miles & just last weekend I ran my first 5k of 2012 and ran the whole thing {without walking!!!} with a time of 30:00. Not record setting, but I'll take it!

And today I am at my first goal weight of 145 lbs....

Wow, what a difference! You look amazing and should be so proud of yourself for all your hard work. You are such an inspiration to me, since I still have at least 20 lbs to lose from Davis.

Congrats! That's very inspiring! Just wondering if you changed anything major about your diet during the same time period?

Kim said...

Awesome Megan! I remember the last time I saw you before I moved I thought you looked fabulous! Just one question: I know that you started running for exercise to lost the weight, what did you change in your eating habits? Nothing? Everything? Love this post, and all you have inspired me to start walking and running {baby steps}.
