How did the daily momentum go? For anyone reading this who doesn't know... there is a group of us trying to lose weight together to lose our Mum Tums. It is no coincidence that the word momentum has the words "mom" and "tum" in there.
We give each other a nudge or a kick or simply a reminder by being there, on Twitter each day.
We all want to get back in trim or in Alyson's case, simply maintain (which as we all know isn't always simple).
We all want to look good for ourselves, but also for Cybermummy :-)
A few of us have blogged about our reasons for doing this:
Made me LOL when I said twofold, as it is more like three :-)
So in this first Weekly Monday Mum Tum what would I like to say.....?
I would like to say that I got into a pair of size 16 jeans this week and I am simply thrilled about that. I bought them on 2nd April in a "return to work" shopping trip. I was devastated when they didn't fit, but after the stress of the shopping trip I could not admit that to the husband so for the last few weeks have been wearing old jeans to work.
They now fit.
Does that mean a goal is ticked off? Yes, but nearly, not quite.....
They fit! But there is a lot of muffin top action going on.
So the new short term goal is the muffin top and the long term goal is still Cybermummy.
Oh and the other goal is the fact that before and after I had Aaron I was 88 kg, but at a recent trip to the Doctor's I was 95 kg, so my short term goal is to deal with that before anything else.
Now that I am in the size 16 jeans, I would like to be back to the size 12 I spent my teens and twenties being....... can I do it, yes I can! But, how long will it take? Watch this space....
I used to blog a lot about weight loss on my old blog Liska Life.
What's motivating YOU???
For me, it is my big arms:
Bye for now, Liska xxx
I'll now hand over to the other lovely ladies to give their Monday update.
I am doing this on Sunday, as I am working tomorrow. I know I usually work Tuesday Wednesday Thursday, but the reason that I went in last Friday is still there, so I am in again tomorrow. And I want this blog post to be up in case the other ladies want to add their bit early in the morning when I will be busy getting ready for work.
Never done a linky before and it wouldn't let me tick the box for a blog hop which is what I wanted.
