i'm okay with it. its my story - not my legacy.
  i get to decide what my legacy is :)
                                         -Momma Brown


How will I live on when I'm not here? That's easy - in my daughter. She is my legacy. Everything I do now is for her, even if I don't realize it.

I want her to remember me as a mom who was out playing with her, not out of breath. Not needing to ice the knee. I want her to have memories of me like I have of my dad - active, healthy, and there.

I haven't talked about my weight loss lately because there hasn't been any. My vacation this past week threw everything out the damn window. I drank, ate leftover birthday cake, napped, ate fried seafood and pizza. I did nothing to help myself.

But when I went grocery shopping this weekend (BY was AWESOME), I stocked up on veggies, fruits and lean meats. It was such a good feeling to open my fridge and see healthy options.

Now's the time. I weigh 238 pounds. If I lose 53 pounds, I'll weigh 185 pounds and Marc's agreed to baby #2 at that weight (he also wants me to run a 5K in 27:31...HA).

My legacy starts now.


  1. You can do it girl! 53 pounds is a lot, I'm not gonna lie, but just take it one pound at a time. I joined a blog weight-loss challenge to help me with my last 7 pounds (I swear they are the hardest!) Ever done the Couch to 5K training program? It is what helped me lose the 50 pounds of baby weight.

  2. Don't feel bad about napping - Resting will help you keep your resolve to make better choices, and is better for your body. :)

    I have 30 lbs to get to my pre-baby weight and I feel like a different person. It's like a completely different kind of weight. I've weighed the same as now before and took it off in a couple of months. This time I've worked much harder and it's still there after two years.
