Wednesday Weigh In & My 1st Giveaway - Giveaway Closed

I finally did it! I went through all my clothes this past weekend, that I want to get rid of, my maternity clothes I no longer need (insert super sad face here) and my boy's baby clothes, they will no longer use (insert a lot of tears here)! I orginally starting putting them up on, but decided that that site wasn't for me, so I turned to eBay. If you want to get a great deal on some cute clothes, maternity clothes and some ADORABLE newborn to 6 month clothes, make sure you check it out here to see if you might want to get your hands on them! Here's a sneak peak -

In other news --

I officially finished the 30 day shred with Jillian Michaels! I am now a "shred head!" (I actually did this for 31 days and it was off and on between running. I also had to take some days off too because of my knee - see previous posts if you are a new reader) So, check out my 30 day results .....

Day 1 - July 1, 2012
Weight - 177lbs  
Bust - 39'
Waist - 42'
Hips - 45'
Thigh - 24'
Arm - 12'

Day 31 - July 31, 2012
Bust - 37'  (-2')
Waist - 40'  (-2')
Hips - 43'  (-2')
Thigh - 22'  (-2')
Arm - 12' (same)

Minus 8' total, I was hoping for more in 1 month, but I'm not complaining at all! I'm more than happy with my results! I wish I knew exactly what size I am now. I am still wearing clothes that are too big on me and it's driving me crazy! Maybe I'll do some retail therapy this weekend to get a few outifts that actually fit me now.

There is one thing that is missing though -- the most important to me, the weight. Drum roll please.....

I have lost 15.2lbs in 31 days and since being pregnant 5 months ago, I have lost 36.2lbs! I could not be happier with my results and I'm still more than motivated to do my personal goal - to lose 40lbs in 5 months! So when January 1, 2013 rolls around I will be at my goal of 135lbs! Here are a few before and afters.

Day 1 - July 1, 2012
(Before 30 day shred)

Day 31 - July 31, 2012
(After the 30 day shred)

Day 1 - July 1, 2012
(Before 30 day shred)

Day 31 - July 31, 2012
(After 30 day shred)

Right before delivery with baby #2
February 13, 2012 - 198lbs

Day before I started my personal challange
to lose 40lbs in 5 months - 177lbs

Today - feeling great and still on my
way to a size 6

2 babies and 36lbs lighter

I have to say that I  more than LOVE the 30 day shred and I would recommend it to anybody! If I can go from 198lbs to __lbs in 5 months, anybody can do it! All it takes is a little motivation and will power!

So that leads me to the "surprise" I promised you on Saturday. Since I love the 30 day shred so much and like I said I would recommend it to anyone, I'm giving 1 lucky reader 1 copy of the 30 day shred DVD to try themselves! So that means no more excuses, I'm giving it to you free! I'm hoping to get you motivated and get you to your own personal goal!
