A week of first!

First of this week started out like any other week, I did everything the same. got up ate my greek yogat which I am learing to like :) get in a quick work out on the wii before my son wakes up, and so on....
But on tuesday Logan was being very Cranky he was running a temp. and I thought he was just teething. He get to stay at my moms and dad on tuesaday for what we call Nanny and Poppy night! I love it and so do they because they get the cahnce to have time with their grandkids! After my dad came and picked up Logan I did my wii fit, and then felt like a walk, so I told my husband to get his shoes on and to come with me! After our walk I felt so good!
The next morning I woke up the at the same time, to do my normal exerise when I felt like weighing myself. Now I normaly do not do that! First off I hate the scale and second normally the number go up and not down! Much to my surprise I stepped on and.....it said......yes this number is real......223lbs! I was so excited! I screamed my husband ran to bathroom thinking I fell or saw a mouse both of which I would of screamed, I had tears in my eyes!
I started Mamavation at 233lbs so that is a lost of 10lbs! Looking back on every other time I have been trying to lose weight it has failed because I have never had a group of women behind me supporting me the whole way! Now I am not close to my goal yet and have A LOT left to lose, but I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel. I can now see the pounds going away.
As Pete Cohen talked to us I am now at a 100% attitude to lose the weight and I am going to lose it! I know it will be hard and I am willing to take all the bumps and hits that come my way. Trust me.
The rest of this week let me tell you.....after I saw how much I lost my dad called telling me he was bring Logan home because he was running a fever and was cranky. All day my poor son was tried would not eat and was running a high fever of a 101.5 I couldn't get him into his normal doctor so I had to take him into rapid remdies and found out he had strep throat so bad that he had puss pockets in the back!
On thursday I was so stessed with Logan that my eatting went out the window I did not eat the way I needed to and fell off the wagon so to speak. I should of asked for my sister helped, but instead I was to prideful! I ate a candybar, and guess what....it made me so sick! I throw up and had some other problems I will not tell you about. But Later that day when Stephen got home and I handed him Logan wh was sleeping on me, went to my room, and put on my head phones and listen to Pete Cohens Rest and Relaxtion mp3. When I was done I came out, and did my wii fit. I felt so much better and knew that it was ok that my day was bad!
The next day I work so much harder and made sure that even with Logan being sick I would find the time to get in my workouts and eat right! Well Stephen came home from work and surprised me with Wii EA Active! I was so happy and had to try it out right away! boy oh boy! I love it! It is a work out that is for sure!
Saturday was a normal for me, Stephen works, I stay home with Logan, but today I felt again to look at the scale because was I was scared that it would be high because I ate wrong on thrusday. Well much to my surprise it said this Amanda you silly silly girl (ok it didn't say that but it was just the voice in my head) (I know I know Pete SHUT THE DUCK UP) 221lbs I was down two more pounds! I could not believe it! I did not want to wake up my son. So I had to make sure I tried it again and yes it said 221. I stepped on the scale five more times before I thought ok it is not going to change! WOW I am doing this. I am loseing weight!
So now I know I can do this I can lose the weight, I also know it is not easy it is HARD! I am now excited to get up every morning and face my day. I am wearing clothes I thought I would never wear anymore. Everyone needs to do this! So if you are reading this and want to know what and how go to http://www.mamavation.com/ look us up!

Congratatulations on losing 12 lbs so far! Wow, that's amazing. Great job! Don't you love the EA Sports Active? That's what I use. I actually graduated now and is using the EA Sports Active More Workouts. But they're both awesome. Are you on the 30-day challenge? You have a great attitude and I know you will get to your goals in time. Keep up the great attitude and the good work. Hope Logan's feeling better now. --- @ImAHotMom at Young And Fabulous

O geez, so sorry to hear bout the strep throat! When a child is sick like that it's understandable you can't think of anything other than what is going on with him. I hope he is better. Now....Wooo!!! Congrats on your lbs. lost, omg! So happy for you and I can imagine what you looked like when you found out when you stepped on that scale. Seeing the lbs. drop definitely motivate. Keep it up! Awesome job :)

TWELVE POUNDS!!! Amanda, that has to be so motivating. Don't let your ego get the best of you again, obviously your GI tract will pay for it, turn to your friends for support. I am sorry your lil one was so sick, that kind of stress is understandable. I look forward to seeing how this week goes for you.

It IS hard, but it is SO worth it! I am VERY proud of you! On top of that, parenting is hard! Especially with a sick bebe :( I know when too much is on my mama plate, my eating gets all sorts of screwed up. Take all things in stride.

I can't wait to hear how you like the EA Sports Active, and what a sweet man you have, bringing one home. It's great that he's supportive.

Please let me know on twitter if you ever need any encouragement! I am totally in your corner!! <3 ~Leighbra
