I’m Back! Week 12 Weight loss Journey Update..


I cannot believe It’s been 8 weeks since I posted anything about my weight loss journey but then again I can believe it. January was a breeze and I couldn’t believe how well it was going, I was well on my way to my goals. Then the cold weather hit hard, record-breaking snow falls, extreme cold (my hands are freezing even as I type this), holidays, birthdays, and dealing with bad news on a weekly basis, all reasons I used as excuses to not watch what I ate and not to put that extra time in to exercise.

Again reality has hit, and I have come to realize again that Summer is coming and I want to be able to have that energy to do fun things with my kiddos, my big butt is not going to fit in most rides they have at theme parks and that really hurts me when my kids ask if I can ride with them and I can’t. I’m sick of how most people look at me but most of all sick of how I feel everyday.

So I’m back again, I didn’t want to step on the scale again but figured I needed a start point again. I am still down 9 lbs since Jan. 1st so not all is lost. I’m still going to go at this like I was before, not really following any diets but just watching what I eat and my portions. I lost 80 lbs in the past so I know what I need to do but I just have to have faith I can do it.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you come back to check on my progress for next week.



    Thank you so much Cherri, that means a lot to me. It’s so hard but I keep trying.

    Good for you! It’s hard to stay on track, but that’s awesome that you’re getting back into the groove of things. I can’t wait to see your progress!

    It is so hard to stay on the weight loss wagon. I swear I fall off all the time. But 9lbs is still 9lbs.

  • Yona Williams

    Any weight loss is a positive, and keeping a positive attitude will drive you further and make the process less of a drag to accomplish. 80-pound weight loss is amazing!!! My current progress is not going as fast as I want it to, but then again, I haven’t been working out – so at least I know something I can do to make a change.

  • Ashley

    Weight loss is so hard, I hear you!! I have PCOS and spent my younger years starving myself (literally) just to be a normal size. I couldn’t keep up, and now I’m dealing with all of the weight gain and I too feel so sad worrying about fitting into rides with my kids.


  • Amy Desrosiers

    Any amount of weight lost is always a plus! This has been such a rough winter on us all!

  • Chrystal @ YUM eating

    Losing weight is a hard journey. But, we also know that sometimes life gets in the way. The good thing is you realized that and are now getting back on track.

  • Ann Bacciaglia

    You can do this! I have also slowed down in my health goals. Life just has a way of taking over. You are still 9 pounds down and that is great.

  • Kelly Hutchinson

    I have the same issues with my weight loss and I was doing well an then gained. I have about 80 pounds to lose and it seems nearly impossible.

  • Stephanie C.

    Keep going – good for you on your successes – just keep it moving forward. Every day is a new one.

  • Ashleigh Walls

    It doesn’t matter the amount you lose as long as you don’t gain it back! Great job and keep it up, I’m starting my weight loss again this Spring hope I can keep it up.

  • Roselynn

    There is nothing easy about losing weight and I think you’re doing a fabulous job. In every journey, there comes a point where you come to a stand still or lose track but I think you’re still doing great.

  • Kori

    Progress is progress- especially with weight loss and other health matters. I wish you nothing but the best with your continuing weight loss journey!

    I guess the program made a difference on you! You’re very disciplined and patient. I can never find the patience to follow a diet program…

    Welcome back, Bonnie! It all takes work! I am a constant work/struggle in process as well!

  • Jamie

    I have struggled with my weight for so many years and only the past 7 months have I really had success. It is hard work and I think the mental part is one of the biggest to overcome! Stay the course!!!

  • Terri Ramsey Beavers

    You can do it and so can I. I’ll be rooting for the both of us. You for energy and me for a decrease in pain. The added weight around my waist is causing an increase in pain w back injuries.
