My quest to go from round to ravishing

Hi! My name is JoAnn, I am a 30 year old wife and mother of one who is working on getting back the old me (at least shape wise).

I decided to start this blog to not only track my new adventures in weight loss for myself but to also share the experience with others to help keep myself motivated.

A couple years back I had many, many health issues and lots of lovely pound packing steroids and medication with long periods of bed rest. In less than a years time I put on 90 pounds going from 130 pounds to 220. Granted I would take the steroids again if it keeps me from having to wear a sexy eyepatch again! Over the past year or so I have lost 40 and that is a good start but for over 6 months now have been stuck on a plateau.  So it is time once again to make some more changes. I am very excited to get started and see where I end up on this journey!

I ordered Les Mills Pump the other day and am very excited to get started. Yes, it is a little pricey but it will be worth every penny. I loved taking pump classes at the gym and was so excited to see that there is now a home version of the program.

Tomorrow is Day One of the new diet and workout. So here are my beginning stats (I hope I measured correctly):

  • Chest: 38 inches
  • R Arm: 12 inches
  • L Arm: 12 inches
  • Waist: 43 inches
  • Hips: 45 inches
  • R Thigh: 29 inches
  • L Thigh: 29.5 inches
  • Weight: 179 pounds
  • Pant Size: 16

I am sure you are wondering where the embarrassing before pictures are but those will come later, not ready to bare all to the interwebs just yet.

Comments, questions, tips and words of encouragement are always welcome!

  1. Congrats on starting the journey to healthy again…. I know how hard it is. I started 2011 at 300 pounds and I’m proud to say that I’m down 50 pounds. I’m working on losing about 50-65 more. It’s a long hard road, but so worth it.

  2. Jo! We can do this 🙂 You are beautiful no matter what! I do know how you feel though. Just don’t change a lot in the diet area, it will stress your body out too. I love you and we will do it!

  3. Congrats on your journey! I cant wait to see it unravel and what not! You’re going to do awesome! 🙂
