Holiday Slim Down!

Natalie from Natalie's Sentiments has started a new blog called Holiday Slim Down: 15 Pounds in 15 Weeks.

”Holiday Slim Down


Now, I know I have more than 15 pounds to lose. Honestly? I could lose about 40-50 pounds and still be healthy. Of course, I won't and can't lose this all at once (wouldn't that be great?).

But 30 pounds in 15 weeks wouldn't be bad: 2 pounds per week. However, I will give myself some grace and say I want to lose 20+ pounds by Christmas.

My goals for this week:
1. Start my Slim Fast diet. One drink for breakfast, one for lunch plus half a sandwich or other small meal, and a healthy dinner. Add in 2 very small, healthy snacks.

2. Take a walk 4 days a week AND do some kind of in-home workout 4 days a week. If it's too hot to walk outside, then I can substitute the in-home workout (and vice versa).

3. Pick out a goal outfit.

Anybody want to join? Head on over to the holiday slim down home blog and read the welcome post. I'm ready to get started!

Sounds good!!
I plan on doing the slimfast thing too. I wonder which one tastes the best?

Great goals! Just be careful not to push your body too hard. You just gave birth after all, and it takes our bodies a long time to recover after that :)

Oh girrrlll, almost all the weight I lost for my sisters wedding has found its way back to me. LOL

Have you done slimfast before? I've always been afraid of how it tastes, therefore, I stay away.

You can do it!!

I'll have to wait until the holidays are upon us to join you as I still have a few months left to be excused from any and all dieting. :)

Just popping in to say I haven't forgot about you over here. My work has kept me insanely busy and I had some trouble keeping up with my favorite blogs!

Hope you've been doing well!
