Move It & Lose It Challenge – Let It Begin!

If you would like to learn more about the Move It & Lose It Challenge I am referring to click the picture above!

So my "fat chick pics" have come sooner than I expected. There was a typo and I was thinking we had to post everything NEXT Monday – turns out the time is NOW (well yesterday). So I’m going to make this short and sweet because it’s late and I’m tired. Here are my before pictures. They were taken this morning. We’ve come to realize Big Daddy isn’t a professional photographer; however, these will have to do πŸ™‚ I couldn’t decide if I wanted to be different and take the pictures in something "untraditional" or stick with my workout clothes. So I did both.

Here is my one of the outfits that I workout in (my favorite). I wear this often.


Then there is my "untraditional" outfit. I used to look decent in this. I did find a picture of my in this dress from September of 2001 that I’ll put at the beginning. This is NOT okay for me to change this much in only nine years!

I can’t believe I just posted these pictures! Ignore the bra hanging out – I wasn’t going to go all out for these! Gross!


Here is my Weight Check-In from when I applied for this campaign (June 21st – my starting point)

Here is my Weight Check-In from this Week (when the challenge actually starts)

It could have been better. In the end, I broke even – it could have been worse!

My measurements haven’t changed since July 4th when I took them. (Another good thing that could be worse)

So there you have it. All my personal, embarrassing details (by this I’m mainly referring to the pictures) that I wouldn’t have never posted if it weren’t for Mamavation. Good luck to all of you mamas in this challenge! Let’s Do This!





  1. I understand how frustrating it can be that our bodies change so much without us “noticing” it. I mean, we know it’s happening, but, at least for me, I didn’t realize it was so much… Good luck with the challenge! I’m cheering for you! πŸ™‚

  2. Woot! Bring it!! πŸ™‚

  3. I can’t even put anything over my thigh from back then!

    Glad you’ve entered! πŸ™‚

  4. I love that you did a pic in an outfit you used to fit in! What a great idea! Your going to Rock this challenge! Good luck!
