Operation Weight Loss - Week 20! The Incredible Shrinking Woman

This week I am so excited! I have finally broken through my two week weight loss plateau and I am down 2 pounds. That brings my total weight loss to 42 pounds. I now weigh 160 and I am only 10 pounds away from my goal. My weight loss has been slow and steady, my five months of hard work have paid off, doing it this way the likelihood that the weight will stay off for good is much higher (and of course I am committed to keeping it off)!

In the past, 10 pounds was my maximum weight gain before I took action. Now that I have 10 pounds to lose and because it was so difficult for me to lose the last two pounds, I've decided to change some things. I am going to add cardio for five days a week to my program in addition to the other workouts that I am doing. I think this combination will take me to the finish line and I can finally get to maintenance mode.

I have added inspiration because I'm the newest member of the Motherhood of the Traveling Shirt. I am one of 12 moms across the country (and maybe the world) that will wear this shirt for 2 weeks for motivation and inspiration on my journey to living a healthy and fit live. We all will all blog about our experience on the BornFit blog.

This shirt gives me motivation and I thank Lissa for choosing me to be the newest owner of the Magical Shirt. I have to run and workout now but tomorrow I will be posting about my giddiness when I received the shirt and how despite a wrench in my workout plans, knowing I was the new owner of the shirt pushed me to exercise!

You are just too cute!

Great loss and you are totally ROCKING that shirt (as I knew you would)!
I am so proud of you! What got you over your plateau? I started off strong with the Shred in March, but it's been slow going since. I think I need a buttload of cardio to finally get these last lbs off. Holy smokes, it's so tough!!!

I love this Traveling shirt challenge, how sweet of Lissa to choose you! Love me some Lissa, and you! ;)

Congrats girl! You make me so proud.

I'd never heard of the traveling shirt before. Is that like passing the Olympic torch?

Congrats!! I am so tempted to chuck the scale, but I just can't. I weigh on my wii board, but we have a bathroom scale too.

Even your energy looks healthy. I know that sounds weird, but your inside matches your outside.

Great job! You inspire me.
