October #OperationHotMama weigh in!



WOW WOW WOW!

I can not even believe that was me just 2 and 1/2 short months ago!

WOW!

All I have done is cut out sugar and flour!

CRAZY!

I did start walking 3 miles a day with a Dear friend!

We try to do it Monday to Friday but we both have 4 kids so

things do come up but WOW guys! 

I know this is crazy but when I look down now at my feet I see chest now not tummy sticking out! 

WOW!

Sorry I keep saying WOW but I am sooooooooooo  PROUD of myself! 

I did not think I could keep this up! 

I have tried to loose weight so many times since I had kids and fell off the wagon each time!

But here is to #OperationHotMama! 

But on a SERIOUS note!

 I have thought about writing about what got me here! 

But I saw this and thought YES!



I was broken guys! 

I really was broken! 

I am a survivor so I would keep pushing on I have 4 kids but my inner self has been hurting for some time! 

Sooooooooooo doing this really isn't about my looks really but about healing and wanting my outside to feel like my inside! 

I have worked so hard to be healthier! 

Cut out chaos and drama! 

My husband and I have worked hard to be better for our kids! 

Not repeat family curses! 

Does that make sense???

Oh well I was NEVER good with words! 

But I LOVE you guys! 

Your  kind thoughts and support over the years have kept me going! 

But lets get to what all you guys have been waiting for! 

Drummmmmmmmmmm Rollllllllllllllllll

Bust 45 down from 49!
Waist 41 down from 49!
Hips 47 down from 49!
Upper arm 14 down from 15!
Upper Leg 24 down from 25! 

I weighed in at 233 down from 250.6!

Not exactly what I was thinking it would look like today but 

pics DO NOT lie so I see the changes in the selfies! 

I will not stop!

See you in November! 

Love Jenn

Check in Day!





I am scared BEYOND scared to fail you guys! 

Sept 1st is here and I get to get on the scale!

I really hope I lost weight it has been 45 days since I started this journey!

I measured myself 14 days ago! 
I forgot to do the measurements when I started! 

Bust 47 down from 49!
Waist 43 down from 49!
Hips 47 down from 49!
Upper Arm still 15!
Upper leg still 25! 

Drummmm roll I weigh in at 238!

Down from 250.6!

YAYAYAYAYAYAYA!

Here is what I looked like when I started!



It has not been easy guys! It is getting easier but it is sooooooooooooo hard! 

I LOVE flour/sugar!

Giving up meat no biggie but bread/dessert HARD!

I did have wine a couple times out on a date night with the hubby and once on our Beach trip!

I also lost it on the Beach trip and ate an Oreo Double Stuff cookie! BOOOOOOOOO! 

But other than that folks I have been good!

I also had a trigger happen! A family member I had not heard from in 2 years text me! 

The old me would have lost it and started texting away starting the whole drama over again! 

But this time I did nothing! 

It is not because I do not LOVE this person or Forgive this person it is because I loose my mind around this person!

A person can only be told what happened to them did not happen so many times before they explode! 

That is what I grew up in! You were told what happened never mind what you saw, experienced with your own eyes! They will break you down till you march to their drum and God Help me I can't do it! I could not do it as a kid and I can't as an adult! 

 The only way I can be a good Mom is being 
Real/ Truthful to myself! 

Soooooooooo I was proud of myself for not engaging not eating a horse etc from the emotional drama it brought rushing back! 

Kids start school this week so I will be adding exercise to this journey! 

Not sure what yet maybe walking but something to speed this up!

Hugs until next time folks! 

Jenn
