Weigh in Week #3

Brittany is down another 4 pounds to 252. Making her total weight loss for 3 weeks 20 POUNDS!!! 
Lynnette is down 3 pounds to 169. Total weight loss for 3 weeks... 10 POUNDS!!! 
I am proud of our hard work. It is getting much easier to stick to. I was sick for a few days this week, so we really got off track on exercise... I keep saying we will start back up tomorrow... It is such and easy habit to fall out of! Life is good though, and I cannot wait to see what we look like by Christmas! #hotmammas #sexybeasts

Week 2 weigh in.

We weigh in every Sunday morning. Today we were greeted with these results:

Brittany down to 256 {down 5 pounds} for a total of 16 pounds down in just 2 weeks!
{Brittany is also down 1 whole pant size!}
Lynnette is down to 172 {down 3 pounds} for a total of 7 pounds in 2 weeks!

I would say we are seeing GREAT results for our efforts. We are still plugging away at our "Ripped in 30" exercise routine. {starting on week 2 tonight} I think better than our physical transformation is our change in MENTALITY!
A few days ago we bought a giant bag of apples, and Brittany said, "Our fridge is starting to look like a normal family fridge now. Full of fruits and vegetables" I love it!
We are also starting to rub off on the the littler kids... Drayden and Chantel have been asking for apples as a snack, and strawberries... Mitch is yet to jump on the bandwagon, but he is being very supportive about OUR goals. Thanks to everyone who has offered us encouragement. This seems like a very daunting task... but I know how important it is, so I will stay strong. Tune in next week =)

Exercise... BOO

We are almost half way through week 2. On Sunday we started the DREADED exercise. I bought a Jillian Michaels workout DVD and boy does it kick my trash! I am so sore I think I might die. Brittany is going strong and keeping me motivated and in line. I am doing fine with the diet portion of our life change... but the exercise... not so much. Every time I sneeze my abs hurt so bad I cry just a little. I have also been trying really hard to get out and walk in the mornings. Even if I only go a few blocks, it seems to help get my day off to a good start. I will check back in at the end of the week with our weigh ins... I better lose a whole bunch, or I'm taking exercise off the menu!
