Operation: Get My Body Back!

I'm officially inspired to get my body back. And of course I say this at the start of the busiest week of the year for us - our annual Company Day is this Friday and I'm responsible for all the activities, presentations, etc. Yes, stressful week...

So, Operation: Get My Body Back may have to officially start Mon, June 7 :)

But this week I commit to: writing down what I eat each day, making sound decisions and exercising 2x before Friday.

I took about a month off of exercise and kinda 'let myself go' a bit... and packed on a couple/few more lbs.

This past December, I joined Wei.ght Wat.chers (which I had done 8 years ago with success) and dedicated myself to bik.ram yoga... and by Easter, I was down to 3 lbs to goal weight. Yes!

Easter took a few weeks to recover from... and then we went straight into a cycle, so pumped up with drugs made me take a couple of more steps back. I think I'm somewhere around 5-6 lbs to goal weight now. I think I can do it this summer, I really do.

And... I had Hannah at I Will be a Mom Someday inspiring me with her post last week - Losing my Pre-Pregnancy Weight. I love how she starts by saying "If I'm not pregnant, I'm going to be skinny."

Hannah emailed me last week and turned out we had the same few lbs to lose, so while I believe she may be a few steps ahead of me, we are positively going to motivate each other to get there. It was so encouraging to get that note from her!

Anyone else want to join in?

If so, state your intentions for the week and then report back on how you did! Make them realistic yet a little out of your comfort zone. Yes, you can do it!!


  1. I want to do it too. However I think that I have a lot more to lose than the two of you. I have started running again and am starting pole exercise classes this week. Plus, writing down what I eat. Good luck ladies.

  2. I definitely need to join this... I have about 40lbs or more that I need to loose but right now I want to loose the first 15lbs... like I did before.... my goal this week is to incorporate 45 minutes of cardio plus lots of fruits and veggies.... inspire me girl I need it:)

  3. Sweet! Thanks for mentioning me! And, I did have to giggle when you said you can't start until June 7. Yay, I'm hoping to get a head start this week. ;) We'll see though after two holiday cookouts!

    Hope your week isn't too stressful.

    Ana & Shanel - you can do it!

  4. Maybe I should join. I wouldn't feel so alone in this. My body just won't lose the weight and I have 40 pounds to lose. I have journaled the food and the exercise, I have changed my eating habits and I have only lost 1 pound since January. Very discouraged at this point.

    It's great you are not far from your goal weight. You are going to reach it in no time! My goal weight would be 135 pounds. I weigh 172 pounds.

  5. I hope it is not to late for me to join in "Operation: Get my Body Back"...

    Lately I have been on an emotionally food binge and I so NEED this ! So we are starting officially on June 7th correct ?

    For this week, I will just cut down on eating the crappy food.
