I can hardly believe this is my last post as a Mamavation Mom. After this I will be spreading my wings and continuing my journey with weight loss. My sights are set on a healthy weight I haven’t been at for years. Now I have the tools to do it!
Spring is a busy season around here. Planting has begun and everywhere I look there is potential growing. Right now I see the potential in myself. The seeds were planted with my hope and desire to lose weight. With Mamavation those seeds were germinated, tended and cared for. Now I am ready to bloom! With each pound I have lost I feel like I have gained strength, power and confidence. I love it!!
Mamavation bootcamp was the start I needed. I have to give a huge thank you to Alysa for her meal planning and nutritional help. Okay, to put it simply, she rocks! Good, simple food was what I needed. Well, that and in smaller portions, of course. 1450 calories and two snacks were easier to manage than I first thought.
So… are you ready for some changes?
First, take a little walk down memory lane with me….
This week’s scale pic looks like this…
And the stats stack up like this:
bust: 37.5 inches (-2.5 inches)
waist: 37 inches (-2.5 inches)
hips: 45. 5 inches (-4.5 inches)
thighs: 24 inches (-4 inches)
arms: 14 inches (+1 inch)
calf: 16 inches (-1 inch)
-14.5 inches total lost as a Mamavation Mom!!!
What is truly amazing is the disappearing “Mommy Belly”. My waist is more visible and I can see a difference between my hips, waist and bust. Woo-hoo! I still have more strength to add, but with Stephanie’s circuits I am sure I can do it.
So what is next for this Oregon Mom? Well, I will be training for my 5K, continuing on with weight training and keeping up with a regular exercise schedule. With the warmer air I hope to get all of us outside more to soak up the sunshine.
For every pound I lost, I more than made up for it in confidence and character. I know I am now stronger both physically and mentally. So, thanks everyone. I needed this bootcamp. I know that as my adapts to this schedule and these new changes I will slow down in my weight loss… but, every pound brings me closer to my goal. 1 lb at a time…
I can’t wait to see who the next Mamavation Moms will be. I am excited to cheer them on and see how they can transform their bodies along with their families. Mamavation can give you the tools to succeed, you just need to supply the hard work.
