The Incredibly Shrinking Me?

Well I hope so anyway!

Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

I can't believe I am going to share all this!!

When I graduated college in 2001, I weighed more than I had ever before in my life and I hated it. When I looked at my graduation pictures all I saw was a big fat 5'3" bowling ball. The following summer my friend and I worked our butts off, went to Weight Watchers and I managed to lose 50+ pounds. During the following years, leading up to my wedding in 2005, I managed to lose another 10 and get myself down to 135 lbs and 19% body fat (by my wedding day). This was thinner and more fit than I had been when I started my freshman year.....of high school!!!

October 2005 I was 137 lbs and got pregnant with Tommy. I was not surprised when I gained a lot of weight during my pregnancy - it was the first time in 4 years that I wasn't on a diet!!! I don't know exactly how much but it was definitely excessive!!

By the time I got pregnant with Jack (I found out on Tommy's first birthday) I was back down to 145 and getting fit again. I managed my weight gain with Jack better, and by Jack's first birthday I was back to 145.

When I lost my job in the beginning of May I was down to 140, since losing my job the weight has been creeping back on. I am now 147 and miserable. Not only have I gained 7 pounds, but I KNOW that it is all fat. I am not just feeling pudgy, but I am also feeling unfit and untoned.

So now I am looking for a kick and the butt....and I think I have found the right people to kick me. The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans is a wonderful social blog that gets together men and woman who are trying to find the body they know they have, underneath it all of course!! The current challenge is a team event!! GO TEAM SAGE!!!

So welcome to my very long winded first official weigh-in - over the next 7 weeks I am really hoping to lose 1-2 pounds a week...but we'll see what happens!!

Height: 5'3"

Official starting weight: 147

Official goal weight: 135

I think I am going to need to do an official weigh-in picture too....but maybe I'll save a big before and after reveal until I am there.

Wish Me Luck!!!!
