Welcome to Slim Down Saturday!

I am so excited about today's post!! Earlier this week I mentioned that I had partnered with Frugal Little Thing and would be guest posting on her blog weekly. Today is the day!!

First I would like to introduce myself. I am a stay at home mom of a sweet little monster (The Boy) who keeps me active. The Boy is two and quite adorable, if I do say so myself. I am married to a firefighter (you're jealous, I know) and am an active member of my church. Active = Sunday School teacher, Bible School director, working with the youth, and designing/maintaining the church website. Shew! I'm tired just typing all that out!!

Now on to the depressing part.

When I got pregnant with The Boy, I was about 20 lbs overweight. During my pregnancy, I gained 35 - 45 lbs....can't remember which.


I lost 20 lbs after giving birth really quickly! Breastfeeding, anyone? Well, my body must have loved being a chunky monkey because when I had to quit breastfeeding, it welcomed all that weight (plus more) back with open arms!!

As of today, I weigh more than I did when I gave birth. I'm only 10 lbs from 200. I really hate admitting that, but there it is. 190 lbs on a person who is only 5'4" makes for a fat mommy.

Many months ago, I started a blog about weight loss thinking it would keep me on track. If I had to admit what I weighed and journal about my exercise and diet, I would do better, right? I thought so. Problem is I didn't know if anyone was reading the blog so really I had no one holding me accountable. I would post something every once in awhile, but not regularly. Sure, I had one or two a few friends who would comment, but I still wasn't a faithful post-er.

Which leads us to today. Frugal Little Thing approached me about posting a weekly health and fitness post and I agreed!

Each Saturday, you can check in and I will have something posted about health and fitness. It might be a website/blog recommendation, a success (or failure), a favorite recipe, or an exercise routine that I have tried. I will also be taking questions and suggestions for post ideas.

I will also be posting things throughout the week, but they will be more of a random topic. You will find that I am a random person. So check in through the week, too. Oh! I almost forgot. I am in the process of "moving" to this blog address. If you want to read all the post from the beginning (you know you do!!), check out the original LoserGirl Blog.

If you want to contact me you can email me at llosergirll at gmail dot com. I will do my best to reply and say hello.

So, what do you think? Are you as excited about Slim Down Saturday as I am? Leave a comment introducing yourself. I can't wait to hear from you!!
