Monday, 3 April 2017, I will be commencing my post baby weight loss journey once again. I want to blog, document and share my journey. Usually, this would be something I share via my YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/ouririshfamily) but I’ve decided to switch things up and use my blog. I hope you can all follow along, any and all encouragement will be appreciated.
For the past number of years, I have been stuck in a vicious cycle of “dieting” and losing weight but putting that weight back on plus more. I have been the same weight (+/- 1-7lbs) for approximately 4 years now.
In March 2016 I gave birth to our daughter and since then I have returned to my pre-pregnancy weight. However, this past Christmas I have seen the weight pile on, I have been emotionally eating and generally feeling very low about myself.
We are also going on vacation in 6 weeks, so no time like the present to try and shred some pounds.
Let’s get to the juicy bits, I took it upon myself to do my body measurements and weigh myself this morning.
Left Thigh – 26.5 inches
Right Thigh – 25.75 inches
Hips – 46.5 inches
Tummy – 40.5 inches
Bust – 42 inches
Left Arm – 13 inches
Right Arm – 13 inches
My weight this morning was:
I will be using Slimming World as my main dieting method. I also plan to walk 5 or more times per week and complete exercise routines that focus on my thighs and belly.
I will have a new blog post every week to update you all on my weight but also to share my highs and lows during the week. I will not be taking my body measurements again until mid-May.
I am setting myself a weight loss goal which I hope to hit before our vacation in 6 weeks. The goal is to lose 10 pounds in that time frame.
Wish me luck.
