{2011 Weigh In: Week 4}

This is the last Weigh in for the month of January! Oh my Goodness!! It's amazing how time has just flown by! This week I have done really well with watching my portion sizes and getting breakfast into my routine.

(isn't this a cute top, it was a bit snug on me before and now that it fits better, I am liking it more)

Another thing that has really helped me this week is My Fitness Pal, it's a FREE online food & exercise journal and has awesome forums where you can get support from others trying to lose weight (great way to keep track of what you eat and how much you eat!!). I also am getting lots of support from my "Lose 6 in 6" group and if you want to see more posts of my struggles and be inspired by the others come on over and check it out the blog - the first month is just about over with and the end of month updates will be up the first part of February, so go check it out!

(It's all in the angle of the arm, there is way more FLAB there - my boob looks lopsided too - darn nursing bras!)

Below are my weight for the 4 weeks (there will only be 4 weeks up at a time):

Week 1 weigh in: 280.5 pounds

Week 2 weigh in: 280.5 pounds

Week 3 weigh in: 275.5 pounds

Week 4 weigh in: 273.5 pounds

total weight loss/gain: - 7 pounds

(you can really see the FAT/FLAB on my arm - icky! and I look pregnant *sigh*)

And now onto my current measurements (mind you my before measurements were measured w/a metal tape measure the now is done w/a cloth one, no excuses though):

NOW    -    BEFORE

49" Bust 51" (-2")

57" Hips 57" (same)

48" Waist 42" (+6")

16" Arm 17" (-1")

Because I am struggling with working out in my home & due to the erratic and cold weather my hubby and I have decided to join the YMCA because not only can we benefit from it but there is lots for the kids to do as well while hubs hits the pool and I hit the gym area. 

(This skirt is getting larger, I don't even need to unzip it anymore, it will just pull right off, soon it will need a belt - I like this front view the best though)

I am hoping that this decision will help me get my measurements & weight down a lot more in February so that I can get my goal back on track, (although I am down 7 pounds but I am up 3" - but it's a work in progress).

So here's to gettin' my but in gear and start shedding some pounds over the course of the very short February!!


  1. 7 lbs! Woo hoo! I wouldn't worry too much about your inches, because I don't think your measurements were accurate with the metal tape. Go a few weeks with the cloth one and I think you'll see a difference. And cut top!

  2. Arya!! You are amazing! I am so impressed with your dedication. Good for you for really working hard on you. Obviously, you get that everyone benefits when "mom" feels good about herself. Keep up the incredible efforts! You are an inspiration!!

  3. Major props to you and your dedication! I need to get off my butt and lose the weight I gained when I moved to Canada, being indoors in winter doesn't agree with me, but it's too cold out. :)
    Thank you for dropping by my blog and entering my OWOH giveaway, feel free to visit anytime you like, it would be lovely to have you there. :)

  4. Congratulations on your weight loss, you're looking fabulous. I really should start a diet, but there's always tomorrow!!
    Thanks for entering my OWOH giveaway.

  5. Hi! Congrats on your pounds lost and here's to many more!!! And that shirt IS really cute!

    So glad you stopped by for OWOH and good luck in my giveaway!


    oh, and I love the photos of your Dad, esp. the black and white ones!

  6. Arya, Thank you for stopping by my blog. You have a good eye for picture taking. I like the ones of your dad. Good luck on your journey to a better diet and healthier you.

  7. Hi Arya! I found you through someone who is doing One World One Heart, and I just wanted to say that I love your header and I have yet to check out all your creativeness...and I wanted to say "you GO girl!" on the weight loss. I am just so impressed by your committment!
    Blessings on the work of your hands - ALL of it!

  8. This is really cool - when it's not OWOH I will have to come back and take a more in depth look at what you're doing - I think I read it was mainly portion control and stuff. I could def do to lose some weight - how brave to show it to the world the though. Count me in as support :)
