Monthly Weight Loss with Pictures

Hey, everyone!
I hope you all have been doing well. I've been blessed! I picked up another child-care job this month which makes me super-busy now between work, gym, wifely duties (cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, etc.), and family time. You can forget about the new gym schedule that I came up with on my last post; it's totally different now because of this new job. I'm now only getting to the gym on Monday, Friday and Saturday. So, that cuts it down from six days a week to three days a week. I will have to make those three days count! I will say that I do get quite a bit of excercise bouncing babies and running around with kids. I even break a sweat, so that's good (although it's nothing like being at the gym). I still want to lose 5 lbs a month but with only getting to the gym three times a week now (and getting smaller ... it's not dropping off as fast), it's going to be a lot harder but that's not going to stop me from trying!
Ok, so what you're waiting to hear... How did I do this month?
I weighed-in this morning at 174.6, which means I lost 5.2 lbs this month for a total of 122.4 lbs lost so far. I'll take it! :) I hope to make it into the 160s next month.

Here are my pictures for this month:

PS: Also, because I just simply haven't had the time, I wasn't able to blog about getting to meet one of my favorite bands, Tenth Avenue North. They did an acoustic set inside the Lifeway store in Knoxville for 45 minutes and it was amazing! I was in the front row and could see them perfectly. It was great getting to meet them and have their new CD signed. I posted some pictures on Facebook. You can see them here. :-D
Oh, and Pumpkin Spice drinks are back at Starbucks as of today. I'm so excited; Fall is in the air! I'm stocked up on my Bath & Body Works Fall wallflowers, candles and handsoaps. I've also pinned quite a few yummy Fall recipes on Pinterest that I'm looking forward to trying. Can you tell Fall is my favorite season? I have all of my Fall decor ready to put up, too. Hehe.


  1. Congratulations, Amy! You are such a beautiful happy spirit! I know Brad and Oopsie feel lucky having you in their lives. I'm glad we're (virtual) friends. *one of these days I'm heading your way and we're going to meet up*

  2. Congratulations on the new job and the weight loss this month! You are a real inspiration!

  3. Congratulations! You look amazing, and I'll be starting a new child care job too! :)

  4. For some reason, I am never able to see the Facebook posts when I click the link... :\

    Love Tenth Avenue North! :)

    Oh and I had my very first Pumpkin Spiced Latte this week and it was amazing!!! :)
