Baby Fever and Weight Frustration

Hey Everybody!

So yesterday I went to meet the two precious little boys that I am going to be babysitting some weekends. Oh my gosh they are so precious but the 2 year old is WILD! I guess this is good practice for our own kids though. The almost 1 year old is so sweet he just wanted to sit in my lap and go to sleep. They gave me baby fever so bad! I can't wait to get our first foster placement. It also gave me a taste of boys and man will I have my hands full if we get a boy!

As far as the foster care goes, we are still waiting. Our training was supposed to start at the end of February, but as it goes when working with the state, we are now starting April 4th! Oh well better late than never and it has given me extra time to get the house together and get things together for all different age children. We are so excited and can't wait to start making a difference in these children's lives.

Now for the weight frustration part of the title. I am at that in between stage in sizes. My current size is very very loose but the size down is too tight still to be comfortable. It fits but its tight. But I'm taking that as motivation to work hard because if I lose just a few more pounds the size smaller will fit perfectly.

I am almost over this upper respiratory infection so as soon as I can breathe I will be back in the gym busting my butt. I'm so ready to be back on track with this journey and get this weight off for good. I am proud of myself though, I have slipped back into being lazy lately but I haven't gained any weight back. I have stayed the same size for a while now. Which is a good thing, but I'm tired of being this size.

Not really anything else to talk about hopefully starting next week I can start working out more and then I will start seeing results that I can tell you about. I am so excited to see what God has in store for me and my hopefully soon growing family.

Thanks for reading!

Lots of Love,

How Fast Time Flies

Hey Y'all!

So I was just thinking that it has almost been a year since I started this crazy weight loss journey. I am no where near where I wanted to be but I have always been the type of person to set crazy goals for myself then have no motivation to meet them. I think today is the day that stops. I need to start making attainable goals that I actually know I can reach so I will stay motivated and encouraged. My goal is to hit the 50 pound mark by my birthday (May 17th.) This is for several reasons, my own personal achievement, and also to try and make my doctor happy and be able to do something that I need to do and my weight has been holding me back.

Eric and I are planning a trip to Galveston for my birthday with some friends and I have so much I want to do so I need to lose the weight before then. I think that will be enough motivation to make me do it. The crappy part is I have been sick for almost two weeks now with an upper respiratory infection. So working out has not been an option at all. Eric's work schedule also sucks hardcore right now and he doesn't get off until 12:30AM. Which means, I stay up until he gets off work, which means I haven't been sleeping as much as I should be. I know this is affecting my mood, which affects my weight, which affects my mood.... see a pattern there?

Anyway enough griping and making excuses. This is going to be a short post just to say, I've been on this journey for 10 months now and I have made HUGE progress but its time to turn it up a notch (or two.) This girl is fixing to be skinny and happy with herself for the first time in a long time.

I sent a message to The Biggest Loser yesterday to see if I could come to the Dallas open casting call as an at home success story. So that is another motivator because I don't want to go and be like "Oh yeah I lost 35 pounds on my own." I want to say I lost 50+ pounds! I may have fallen down a few times but I will get back up every single time and keep going.

Anyway, that's all for today. Thanks for reading!

Lots of Love,

Guess who's back!!!

OK guys I am so so so so infinity so sorry I haven't posted in like forever! Please please forgive me? OK, thanks :) Lets move on.....

So I am still on my weight loss journey but have recently not stopped caring just stopped trying and having motivation. I watched the finale of The Biggest Loser last night and OH MY GOSH that was all the motivation I needed! I'm so ready to get back on track and do this. I realized that I can't do this without my blog, you people motivate me so much and it is great accountability for me.

I did a couple weeks ago have a training session with a personal trainer and thought I was going to die! Seriously he has this big grin the whole time and it makes you want to slap him in the face. But it was amazing because when I finished I could say that I did it and survived and know just how far I can be pushed. Truth be told I probably could have gone a LITTLE farther.

I love you guys so much! I have been told by numerous people that my blog inspires and motivates them and that is another reason I have started it back up. I promise to be faithful this time. If I can inspire someone on my journey then that is amazing.

I posted on Facebook last night a thank you to The Biggest Loser for not picking me to be on this season that just finished. I got so much out of watching this season all the contestants were so motivating and this season just really touched me. I also realized that while I didn't lose 100+ pounds like most of them have, I have lost 35 pounds on my own, in the real world, without 8+ hours a day of personal training, and a controlled environment. 

Trust me guys if I can do this, anyone can! So, that being said, I'm getting back on track and I hope you all will help keep me motivated and accountable. Thank you so much for all the support!

Lots of Love,
Sara (The Biggest Loser Reject)
