Mamavation Monday! I need new shoes!

Watch Lives ChangeHey everyone, thanks for stopping by! This has been one of those rollercoaster weeks. My eating wasn't great, I left my Hydracoach at home one day, and I had a massive sinus headache at the beginning of the week, so i didn't workout until Thursday! But, I guess I didn't do too much damage. I still ended up with a loss of 1.3 lbs this week, bring my total to 22 lbs lost. I am excited about my weight loss! My sister told me today that she can tell I am losing weight, and my pants are getting looser! (Deleted negative part of this sentence per @GretaBlau!)

So this week's challenges are to get my almost 2 year old to quit sucking his thumb. He is beginning to develop an open bite and his thumb is chapped and swollen! Oh wait, my weight loss challenges this week, are to continue working out and visiting the gym regularly. And drink more water!

Congratulations to Shawnee, @ShawneeH for being named the Sista of the Week! Shawnee you are so awesome, I can always count on you to cheer me on, or give me some twitter love! Thanks girl for being so great!

Make sure to check out this week's sponsor Earth Footwear, @earthfootwear! I am so psyched about this, I need a new pair of shoes terribly bad!

Also joining us on this weeks MamavationTV Monday is Liz Neporent, @lizzyfit we are going to learn so much from her!

I shouldn't be but am a bit jealous you are still wearing your maternity pants. I loved one pair of maternity shorts with their comfy waistband but stopped wearing them a few weeks ago. Le sigh, but this is mamavation, not comfort zone right? Woohoo for loose pants! Keep it up and you'll be out of them soon. Good luck with your goals this week, the gym and your Little with thumb sucking.

Schweet! Girl, you are doing GREAT!
Despite the rough week, you are still kickin butt. You're gonna be surpassing me here pretty soon.

And stay away from my shoes you Gruve taker! ;)

Congrats on your weight loss! It sounds like you've mastered eating right if you can still lose w/o working out hard - way to go! Keep up the exercise though - it's good for your strength, heart, range of motion, balance etc... You're doing awesome!!!

BTW - want to send those maternity pants this way? My regular pants & skirts aren't fitting...


Totally OT:
I wouldn't worry too much about your son's thumb sucking - he's doing it for security and taking it away means you're taking away his security. I sucked my thumb until I was 12, and am the ONLY one in my family who did not require braces :) As I got older I sucked it less and less as my self-confidence grew. My parents honestly didn't nag me about it - so I never felt self-conscious about it either.

Maternity pants 21 months later?? Maybe you can make your reward to yourself when you reach 25 pounds a new pair of pants?

congrats on the weight loss this week. Have a great week!

Hello! Great on the weight loss. You know what I noticed? You said something positive (pants getting looser) but then kind of undid it with (maternity pants 21 months later)...take the last part out. There's nothing wrong with that and you're doing something to change it.

You rock, girl!!

Congrats on the weight loss! We seem to be at right about the same point in our weight loss journeys (I've lost 24 lbs, 1.6 this week) so I'll probably Twitter-stalk you. Just giving you a friendly warning.

Keep up the good work and get to that gym!

Angela said...

Congrats on the weight loss! Not just this week's 1.3 pounds but a whopping 22 pounds! That's super great. :) Keep it up and good luck with the thumb-sucker. No fun there.

Laura said...

1.3lb loss is great hun!!

Not sure if you solved the thumb suckin thing, but my mom use to paint my thumb nails with this anti-nail-biting polish that tasted NASTY! worked like a charm!

Wishing you luck this week! Stay positive hun!

Ugh, sinus headaches are no fun and definitely can take you out. So it's really great you still managed to lose over a pound this week! Congrats!

I just took my two kids off their binky last Saturday. My 2 year old is doing better each day, the 1 year old, not so much. But, I have been amazed with the change in my 2 year olds' teeth in such a short time. She had a huge open bit and it's pretty much closed already.

Thumb sucking is a lot harder to stop though - I know that from my days working at the orthodontists office. You might want to consider making a reward chart for each time you catch him without it. Then give him stickers or whatever to reward him. It won't be easy though, and the nights will be tough.

Hang in there and keep up the great work!

Great job on the weight loss! And best of luck breaking the lil' man of the thumb. I saw a great tool for that on the one step ahead website!!

Danielle said...

Congrats on your loss! Good luck with all your goals this week!

Stephanie said...

Congrats on your weight loss. You're doing such a great job. A good weight loss goal might be to treat yourself to a day of shopping to replace those big pants you don't need anymore :)

Resa said...

Yayyyy!!! Loose pants are SUCH a good feeling, plus the feeling is so addictive! It seems like the sinuses are getting everyone this week, so good job keeping up in spite of it. :)

Laila said...

Congrats on the continued weight loss!! I know it feels good when other folks notice your hard work. Have a great week!

MrsFatass said...

Congrats on the weight loss! And my daughter (3 next month) is a thumb sucker too. Was such a blessing as an infant when she could soothe herself, but now all I see are BRACES BILLS. So keep us posted on your successes there, too, okay?

Erica said...

Thanks for following me. I have followed back from Frugal Racing Fan Mommy.

I need to lose a ton of weight but am currently pregnant. Hopefully I can join in with your weight loss after January!
