The beginning...

So this is my first blog. I'm kind of nervous! I am not witty or able to think of clever things to say...so I am afraid this may be dull for some. I have decided to start a blog because one of my friends from high school has one and I read hers and it really keeps me motivated! I am also starting it so that I can be held more accountable with regards to losing weight! I just had my first child in February and since his birth I have gained about 15 pounds...and I'm breast feeding, so I think I was supposed to lose weight. Not good. So...I am back to where I was about 5 years ago weight wise. Not quite the heaviest I've ever been, but definitely a lot bigger than I've been (about 30 pounds bigger) for the past 5 years.
So I have my bodybugg on and I am going to write down what I eat and just try to move more! In the next few weeks I hope to get back to the gym, but I need to find out how much longer my membership is going to last!!
So I am going to set a goal to try and lose 10 pounds by the end of June. I am not sure if this is too high of a goal since I am still breastfeeding, but I know I am eating enough for myself and probably 5 babies, so I think I can swing it and still give the baby all that he needs!


  1. You sound completely motivated and I agree that keeping a blog will help you be more accountable. You go girl! I KNOW you can do this!

  2. I was SOOOOOOOOOO excited when I refreshed my screen and so that I had a new "follower" with a very familiar face! Big hugs to you and that little guy ... you're going to do GREAT!!! (And now I'm going to pimp out your blog. Bwahahahaha!)

  3. Hey Jessica...I'm friends with Karen. Blogging does help you feel more accountable. You know people are kinda waiting for your next update. :) Good luck.

  4. Welcome to the blogging world! I hope you find it as motivational as I do. There is a lot of great inspiration and support out there.

    I look forward to following you on your weight-loss journey. 10 pounds by the end of June is very do-able.

    BTW, I have a BodyBugg too!

    You can do this!



  5. Welcome! Blogs motivate me too. It's like I'm accountable to all these strangers for what I eat or whether or not I exercise. It also helps me keep my sense of humor throughout the process. Look forward to following you!

  6. Karen is good at being a Pimp. Bet that didn't make it into the yearbook huh? Welcome to the bloggy world. Don't worry I don't think I am interesting either and I have readers LOL

  8. Welcome to blogging!! You don't have to be exceptionally witty or entertaining, just be you! :) That always works out best!

So good luck, and I'll see you around!
