I've finally lost my Baby Hippo weight!

....and my twin weight, and my 4-year-old boy weight! Woohoo!

Now to lose my honeymoon weight, the one I took five years ago after my wedding to John, my happiness-because-of-being-in-a-new-relationship-with-John weight, and my 8-year-old girl weight....

19 pounds lost, 22 more to go!

So you may have noticed the ticker I've linked at the end of each post, this one.....



Lest there be any confusion about it, let me explain. This ticker is a representation of the weight my sister and I have lost combined. The number on the right is the amount of pounds we would like to lose, combined, and the number in the middle, with the cute little apple above it, is the amount we've lost so far. My sister is a HUGE loser, having lost 77 of the 96 pounds portrayed on the ticker. I've included her on my ticker because she has been hugely instrumental in helping me to lose this weight I've carried for five years. She's my health coach and she came free with the Take Shape For Life program to which she introduced me. Because I've had so much success with TSFL, I've become a health coach, too! As my health coach, Robyn has motivated me, encouraged me, held me accountable, and because we are sisters, even yelled at me when I've overeaten due to stress. Honestly, having a personal coach has been the most beneficial part of the Take Shape For Life plan.

If you are interested in losing weight the way my sister and I have, and would like a free health coach to encourage you and help you on your way, I would love to be a part of your plan as your very own health coach! To learn more about the program, go HERE. Oh, and because of popular demand, I promise to post my before and after pics soon! 

Thanks for listening!

P.S. My sister and I are finally getting skinnier!
See how we're doing it HERE! :)

Congratulations, Jen! That's awesome. I've gained back 13 pounds and can't seem to get going again on eating healthy. Any ideas? I had to buy some clothes a size larger so I'd have something to wear:(

I am interested Jen, I am so unmotivated lately. Eating 10 chocolate chip cookies a day isn't exactly a good way to lose weight. I just feel so blah!

Rachel Murphy said...

Congrats on the loss! That must feel amazing.:)

Congrats on the weight loss! It is great to have a motivator and someone who will keep you in check too! My friends and I try to do that for each other, but we are not very good at the keeping each other in check part. Keep up the hard work and good luck!!!

NOW I understand! I kind of knew that it was both of you, but not really. I just kept thinking WOW WOW WOW everytime I saw the ticker! lol Now that I know there is two of you on there I don't feel so bad about being fat again. LOL

Congratulations on droping the Hippo weight! That is so excellent! :D (And the other weight, but the Hippo weight is the cutest weight, hence I am commenting on that.)
