Accountability Mondays: Before

Okay, so I'm not in the best of shape and my body is no where near what it used to could it be?!?! I have six kids. Let me repeat that SIX kids!!!!

While I get the comment "You don't look like you've had six children"...thank you but you're lying! What does one look like after they have had six kids? I've looked it up...honestly, I don't know what you're comparing me too!!

I'm not healthy or in shape by any means. I prefer burgers and ice cream over salads and vegetables.

I have no energy and all I want to do is sleep and eat.

I hate the way I look in clothes and even less in a bathing suit.

I'm not getting any younger and I am not going to miraculously lose weight, have more energy, and fit into a bikini by wishing on a shooting start.

So, I've taken the first step in turning my life around and joined Lean Moms.

Lean Moms offers a 12 week fitness program and meal guide to get started on living a more active and healthy lifestyle.

It was developed by a mom who went through all that I am going through now. She turned her life around and is using that to help other women like her make the same changes.

One thing that they are big on is accountability and recording your progress publically so that you are accountable for your own success and can get the public support to cheer you on.

So, aside from the membership, I am going to use my blog to keep me going.

So today I'm sharing with you my before pictures.

The 12 weeks start today.

I will update weekly with my progress, feelings, and even measurements!!

I'm laying it all out there...putting myself out there...its time to make a difference for me because nobody else is going to do it!

So, here are the before pics...

Damn! I need to even out my tan and finally finish my tattoo already!!!

Wish me luck!


  1. Def. wishing you good luck!! The hardest part is making the commitment! I am such a picky eater and have a hard time with meal plans. I really need a meal plan that includes bread, pasta, chocolate and chicken. That would rock!

  2. Good for you and good luck with your program!! Exciting!! (And I think you already look fantastic. If you can wear a bikini proudly--and you definitely can--you are looking pretty great in my book) --Lisa
