#15byType-A and Intro post

April 21, 2011 Amanda 10 Comments

I don’t know if I shared with you all yet, but not only am I speaking (!) at Type A Parent Conference this year with the amazing Sarah Pinnix I am also the volunteer coordinator again this year.  I’m super pumped and cannot wait to see everyone!  However, I am a little freaked because I’m still overweight {much to my chagrin} and I am not thrilled with my body right now…so I’m also not super pumped about being in front of people and not being confident.  After stepping in at the end of a Twitter conversation I found that several of my friends and fellow Type A Parent goers were planning on getting a group together and committing to lose 15 pounds {or whatever you want to lose} by the first day of Type A this year {June 23rd}, I decided to join in!

SO here’s my intro post:

I’m Amanda.  I have two amazing little girls {7 & 4} , work mainly from my house {usually in my pjs, cause that’s awesome}, am a full time student and have a deep abiding love for all things chocolate.  I’ve never lost all of my baby weight, but I came pretty darn close just before I got pregnant with KJ. I am so tired of looking in the mirror and being absolutely unhappy with what I see. I am ready to make a change and commit to living healthier.  I have just signed up for My Fitness Pal {highimpactmom} and downloaded the app on my DroidX so I can actively track my progress and be held accountable.  I have 29 pounds that I want to lose total, but will be thrilled to reach a loss of 15 pounds by the end of June!  Tomorrow I’ll post my before picture {I’m in class now and shouldn’t even be blogging right now} I hope you’ll hold me accountable and I’ll do the same for you!

What is you main weight-loss obstacle and what are you doing to overcome it?

    I love that you blogged during class! That had me laughing!

    I have spoken with quite a few other moms that got super close to their goal weight and then BAM! Got preggo again. I am in that group.

    I can’t wait to meet you at Type A in June and revel in our mutual success! This is going to be so much fun!

    Oh yes, my teacher says “mmmmkay” over and over, so I have to tune him out and just read the assigned reading very closely :)

    I’ve heard a lot of women say the same thing! Makes me feel good to know I’m not alone!

    Can’t wait to meet you as well! Here we go!

    Just found you through Mama Dweeb and I’m looking forward to supporting you and sharing in this journey!

    I’ve been working on my weight loss for about 2 years now and I’m down 50 to 60 pounds. I still have a bit to go, but it’s all about life style changes and making it happen.

    Nice to “meet” you. I am attending the Type A conference. Would love to hear about your weight loss plans. I am finding it hard to get back to my normal weight and my youngest is 4. Ugh

    Hi Anna! nice to meet you as well! Is this your first Type A? My plans? Ha. Right now they are: don’t. eat. everything. lol My baby is four too and I’ve always struggled with weight-loss, but wasn’t ever overweight until I had my two small people. My tip: Plan ahead. Make, portion, prepare as much as you can ahead of time. It’ll save you time and motivate you to eat better since it’s not so much work. Come back and let me know how you’re doing.

    More ice water. Sometimes I eat when I am thirsty…so drinking can help. (brilliant huh) I also eat when I am bored, frustrated, sad, hungry.

    When I make a pie chart of my thoughts food takes up almost as much space as my children and work. Tough to face.

    I will keep reading your posts, and meet you in a month or so in NC
