SPF - Left over

This week's SPF theme is "left over." Now, as you may remember, I'm trying to lose weight. But where, exactly, did all this weight come from? Most of it is LEFT OVER from having babies. Four of them. Someone once told me that every pound you gain over thirty is yours to keep, and I did the numbers. She wasn't far off. I ended up weighing about 60 pounds more than I did before kids. That's a lot of leftovers.

However, I am happy to report that I just hit the thirty pounds lost mark earlier this week. That puts my goal weight only 20 pounds away! And to illustrate this, a picture of me wearing my rings, which I had not worn since before baby #3. Hopefully I can get rid of the rest of my leftovers soon!
Did you play?


  1. ummm share the secrets please.....

    I am happy and jealous all at the same time!

  2. Wow! 30 pounds is quite an accomplishment. You should be proud!

  3. Congratulations on getting rid of some of those leftovers! Well done! I've been struggling to lose 15 lbs, so you are an inspiration to me.

    Happy SPF! Thanks for visiting mine!

  4. Congratulations! Weight is a universal struggle for most of us.

    I know it has to feel good to get those rings back on.

    I played, come on over and check it out.

  5. Holy crap, I'm bowing at your feet!!!! 30 lbs???? You kick ass girl!!!

    Happy SPF, and I played too :-)

  6. Congrats on the weight loss!

    I played too :)

  7. Congrats on reaching that milestone! I would love to do that, too, but so far I haven't been willing to make the sacrifices I feel it would require. Great SPF!

    Thanks for stopping by mine!

  8. Dude! We have VERY similar rings!!!

  9. Twenty lbs is NOTHING. Whatever you do - don't take a break now. Keep going you are on a major roll and that is an accomplishment to be proud of for sure!!!!

  10. CONGRATS on purposefully plaing thoe 30 pounds elsewhere...I mean, you didn't really lose them but well, you know what I mean. That's great!!!

    Have a great weekend, hon!

  11. Jana that is wonderful! Congratulations!!!

  12. Wow! Congrats Jana!! :) That is a lot of weight to lose. You must be so proud.

    I keep losing and gaining the same 10 lbs.

    Don't believe that thing about over age 30. My Mom is nearing 50 and has lost more than 50 lbs this past year.
