Two Month Weightloss Countdown: Day 1

So today, I've decided that I will mark the beginning of my race to look sexy.  A race that I seem to constantly lose.  However, this time I feel a little more hungry for it.
On July 16th, my husband will be turning the big 3-0.  This is my deadline.  To get my sexy "back" to help bring in the next decade of his life.

Now, I have never really been a tiny girl.  But I have spent the last 8 or so years telling myself that I would never get "that big."  Then when I would get "that big," I would look at a girl bigger/heavier than me and say I would never get "that big."  Every time I got that big, the same words would come out of my mouth.

When I moved back in with my parents back in 2011, I decided to do something about it.  I started going to the gym and I saw results.  Then I got married and moved to Kentucky and all was lost.  I tried again to get back to the gym last spring.

Amusingly enough as I started working out again, I started to think, "Wouldn't it suck if I got pregnant right when I was trying to lose weight?"


I was 203 pounds when I found out I was pregnant and ended my pregnancy around 240ish. I am currently fluctuating around 208 lbs.  This is the most I've ever weighed (while not pregnant and recovering from my c-section).
Today I started a cleanse, which I will post about tomorrow.  I've also been using a the My Fitness Pal app to help me keep track of my weight and what I eat.  While I'm not big on counting calories, it does help give me perspective on what I put in my body versus how much goes out.

While I won't be posting daily with the tedious details of what I eat or every bit of exercise, I will post about my triumphs and I'm sure some failures.  Hopefully, putting this out there for the world will make me have some accountability.
