So as part of the Mamavation Mom application process I have started to have more confidence in what I am doing and that I doing the right thing by making a change in my life.  I realized that I needed to go back to weight watchers.  I need that support and I needed a fresh start with that.  I weighed in at 230 pounds...I hate that.  I hate that at one point I was a lot less than that since having Josie, but you know what it is a starting place!

I also figured I needed some before pictures, not those pictures that I specifically pick to post on facebook or twitter-you know the good ones that make me look fabulous!  Nope the down and dirty unflattering ones.  So here they are my starting point-Holy hell at least this is the starting point

Seirously, I look like I have a baby bump!  This is why I always suck in my tummy 

Another starting point for me-I did my first virtual 5k with Mamavation this Saturday.  I have always wanted to run a 5K so on Friday the groupon in CT was a color run in July, so I bought it and I am signed up.  So that means I need to get my ass in gear and get to it.  My time 52 min and only jogged a small portion of it.  But its a starting point.
Me and jog/walking buddy Biscuit 

Yet regardless of my starting point-these guys will be at the finish line. They deserve my best and so do I!

How was your week?  I can't wait to get on all this new stuff!

    Oooh, you totally reminded me that I wanted to buy that groupon! Maybe I'll see you at the run. A color run is a great race for your first race!

    Congratulations on your first 5k. I've signed up for more of them then I care to share and I've yet to complete them.

    I started one of my full workout programs today (again) and I'm part of a challenge group to help keep me accountable. I think it's smart for you to go back to Weight Watchers if it's what you need.

  4. It's a great starting point, congratulations on finishing your first 5k! It only gets better from there! :-)

    52 is a great time especially to start! My starting one was only 44. The color run should be so much fun. I haven't done a color one yet only a mud run and it was fun. Whoot! Whoot! Go girl!
