It’s My Birthday and I’ll Lose Weight If I Want To!

Mamavation Monday Check In

Is it really Monday again? This day always seems to come by so fast!

This past weekend was a fun one in our family – my birthday was Saturday and my oldest son’s birthday was Sunday! We had a great time, including a trip to Germanfest with our friends! I also decided to save a big weigh in/measurement day for my birthday, so I purposely hadn’t weight/measured in a while. And here are the results…

I have lost a total of 39 pounds with Mamavation since December! I was hoping to have an even 40, but I’m super fine with 39 too! And here are my measurement results, you can see I’ve lost a total 26.5 inches!

My birthday weigh in and measurements for June 8


Thank you so much to the Mamavation community, y’all inspire me to keep going! And, of course, big squishy heart hugs to Rebecca, Jeanae, Shelley, Shannon & Leah. Best motivators around!

Until next week!
