What’s Happening Lately…in pictures!

I can’t believe that the last time I did one of these posts was before Christmas! It’s time to do a little update on what has been going on in the A Journey to Thin household.

Little Miss Sunshine loves to watch Masha and the Bear on Netflix. I can’t lie, I think it’s a pretty good show too! It’s pretty funny. This picture reminded me so much of Masha!


I have been searching Goodwill and consignment stores for new toys. I can't believe what great deals you can get on toys that are in good condition! These are some Goodwill finds—I happened to stop there on a day they had an additional 50% off of everything. Score!


I've been on the lookout for the Fischer Price Little People toys. Just the other day, I found a barn and the Disney Princess Castle. Little Miss Sunshine loves to play with the Little People.

We were able to be with my sister & family for a little while a couple of weeks ago. Little Miss Sunshine loves her older cousin!


She loves to play grandma’s piano!


We’ve gotten to visit my mom a couple of times in the last few weeks. It has been fun!


But it’s always nice to be reunited with hubby!


Little Miss Sunshine loves to play in her little princess tent—another consignment store find! She also loves Elmo.


Doesn’t this picture look like the ocean at first glance? It’s actually just a snowy field, but it’s fun to dream!


We don’t have such exciting shopping carts where we live—but they do where grandma lives! She loved it.


My mom came across this picture of me when I was a little girl. I can definitely see the similarities to me and Little Miss Sunshine!


I recently had a rank advancement in my new business and received another leadership bonus! LOVE this opportunity!

Everything has been going pretty well around here—except for being hit with colds now. Poor baby has had hers for almost 2 weeks! It seems to be getting better.

Have a great weekend!!

Month by Month Weight Loss

I like to keep track of how much weight I’ve lost per month because I feel like it’s easy to get caught up in the little differences of weight shown on the scale from day to day that I don’t consider the bigger picture and the progress that’s being made.

I am happy with my progress this month but I would like to kick it up a notch and get back to how strict I was when I first started! Not that what I’m currently doing is “bad”, it’s just that I think I could lose at a faster rate and get to my goal faster if I buckled down and put my mind to it.

So here is how my journey has gone since I began:

Weight loss to date

I would love to lose 10 lbs. per month. I could probably do it if I was more strict with my eating—but I’m not sure I want to do that either! Even at 6 lbs. per month, I would lose 72 lbs. in a year and weigh less than ever. I could handle that!

It seems like my weight will hold steady and then, BAM—a big drop of weight. I’ve also noticed that I seem to do better when I’m eating more. I have never been restricting calories all that much, but it’s good to know that I have some wiggle room there too. Many days, I eat over 2,000 calories—albeit, it’s usually “healthy” foods and lots of protein and I think that makes a big difference. And, of course, the amount of calories I’m able to consume will go down as I lose weight.

Just remember that, while each week the weight loss might not seem like that much, it all adds up!
