Weekly Weigh In–May 23

weekly weigh in

Welcome to the first week of Weekly Weigh In here on Mommy Head Adventures.  I am so excited to start this new journey with my lovely readers by my side.

A little background…

During my last pregnancy, my doctor informed me that I was glucose intolerant.  Another fine word for this is pre-diabetic.  When I heard those words, I knew it was time to take my health more serious.  It was then that the idea of a weekly weigh in was born.

Every Wednesday, my plan is to post a picture of my scale to show my weight progression.  Losing weight is the goal, and to let you in on a secret, if I gain, I literally have to pay.  A dollar for every pound.  Talk about motivation!

And for the next 8 weeks, I am taking place in the Gunnar Challenge.  This great online program is like getting the benefits of a personal trainer all in the comfort of your own home.  So be on the lookout as I tell you some of my favorite parts of the program.

In the spirit of the Challenge, here are my 3 before pictures:


And here is my weight for this week.  We will call it the official starting weight:

gunnar challenge

That is it for this week.  Be sure to come back next week and see my progress!  And check out my friends at Simply Budgeted and Weight Loss Mother and cheer them on to their goals during the Gunnar Challenge.

Disclaimer: I was provided free access to the Gunnar Challenge for the 8 week program.  No compensation was given and all words are my own.


  1. Tara, I’m proud of you for doing something about your health! You’ve motivated me as well…but my challenge is taking that first step. It’s so much easier to procrastinate and say I’ll get healthier when I have more time, or more sleep, etc. I’m on your cheerleading team! Love, Jess

  2. You can do this Tara!!! Your not in this alone, I’m trying to lose weight to, I just weighed myself today and found my self 195.2!!!! and I was like WHAT!?!?! so, time to bring back the running routine, 1 mile a day. Probably starting tomorrow morning, and if not, then Monday.
