Mamavation Monday - My Pics & Measurements

As promised in my last post, here are my before pics as I'm starting today on my 30 Day Slimdown with Jillian Michaels. It's the best I can do. Most of my clothes are very baggy and y'all wouldn't be able to see anything. I'm looking at these pics. Yes, I am a big gal but I'm actually surprised that I don't look as big as I thought I would be in these pics. I'll have to dig up some old pics and post them as I was much heavier than here. In fact, I've lost 50lbs this year since April! I know I have a long way to go and this time, I'm gonna make it. *smiles* P.S. Excuse the mess..hehe.
Here's a pic of what I weigh on the scale today. Not bad at all! I thought for sure I was gonna gain weight from eating some of those fave cookies yesterday and having a piece of pie for a couple of days. I did good. Now let's get serious and aim for 325lbs for the New Year's. That was my goal for this month. To weigh 325lbs by New Years. Even if I don't make it, I'm definitely not too far off. *smiles*
Here are my measurements starting today:
Bust - 62 inches
Waist - 55 inches
Abdomen - 63 inches
Hips - 62 inches
Thigh - 28 inches
Arm - 15 inches

From the time I first started this blog, I've definitely lost some inches. Whoo hoo! Lost 4 inches so far. Lost almost 10lbs since I started this blog. This is great! Of course, let's keep going! *smiles*

Starting today and every Monday, I will be doing Mamavation Mondays which will include my progress in the New Year. Hopefully I'm doing this right as this is my first post for Mamavation Monday. *smiles*


  1. I am sooo proud of you. Just remember girl, all things are possible! I lost over 170 lbs....and I was such a couch potato when I started. You are WAY ahead of me. It took me 4 years to do, so daily dedication is important. And one piece of advice I would give you is to accept the fact that you aren't perfect and you are NOT going to have a perfect weight loss. There will be times when you fall flat on your face, but when that happens just get up and brush yourself off. Don't beat yourself up...just move on and keep going. Our dreams happen when we ignore our fears of failure and do it anyway. The Sistahood will be here for you! XXOO

  2. You are so brave and I appreciate your honesty and posting your story. I am "lurking" today, I don't quite have the courage to post on mamavation yet. I am also headed out of town for a week in the morning. Doesn't life just always seem to be getting in the way :)??

    I will be checking your blog regularly and hopefully, you will "read" my story soon!
