2 year Fitversary: My Weight Loss Journey…24 to 2!

I am going to repeat this from the My Frump to Fit: Size 24 to Size 6 blog because I feel that this is a very necessary statement. This is only my journey.  This is what worked for me.  This is not what I recommend or suggest but simply telling my story.  We are not in a […]

My Frump to Fit: Size 24 to Size 6

Before I really get into this…  This is only my journey.  This is what worked for me.  This is not what I recommend or suggest but simply telling my story.  Many people have asked me what I did, do or are doing to get my weight down.  A LOT!  Well it doesn’t feel like a […]

Chasing down my Fit: Postpartum Week Two

The wait.  Nothing but waiting.  And waiting.  And waiting some more.  They were not kidding when they said that patience is a virtue.  I’m waiting to get back out on the pavement.  I’m waiting for the doctor’s “all clear”.  Just 2 more weeks to go! I’ve already begun to plan out the rest of the […]

Chasing down my Fit: Postpartum Week One

It’s that time…that time that I pushed for throughout this entire pregnancy.  Baby Hannah is here and now it’s back to my journey.  I must admit that I was not always the best with my choices BUT I am not always the best with my choices throughout life in general.  If I really want a […]

Runiversary!

September 19th marks a very special day for me. It is my runiversary. The day that I decided to stop telling myself that I would never be a runner. As children, we grow up learning and believing there are simply things that we can and cannot do. If we say something enough, we start to […]

Fit Prego: Pain & Gain

Baby bellies! I’m sure going to miss this but I may be too busy enjoying some new baby smell. The weight though…I won’t miss monitoring the gain!  It hasn’t been easy for me. Never has been. I’ve always stepped into a pregnancy already obese or overweight. I’ve never been allowed to gain a lot. I […]

Fit Prego: You might wonder…

You might be asking…why this picture?  Well these jeans are the very same ones I continue to talk about.  They are my Vera Wang size 14 capris.  Of course, they no longer go over any part of the belly but the rest of my body has remained the same!  I did it!  I did it […]

Fit Prego: Good to go

We have made it to the good to go! Still healthy and holding strong! The doctor has been testing my thyroid and the hormones with the medication seem to be doing well. Baby is doing great. It’s quite odd going from overweight pregnancies to this one. I was always kind of content and didn’t really […]

Fit Prego: Might be time to stop.

I’ve entered the realm of sleepless nights and back laboring.  Normal errands and appointments have been enough to get to the halfway of my daily step goals in FitBIt.  I find that this pregnancy I have definitely been feeling more.  Not sure if it’s because this is number 4 or maybe because I am a […]

Fit Prego: Oh what a feeling!

Yes, I am slowing down.  Well I guess that depends on your definition of the word.  I am indoors.  I’ve been mostly cleaning, sewing, studying and cooking!  Lately I have been quite mindful of not overdoing it.  There’s one big thing that I did not realize before…being more fit means I can feel more.  It […]
