December 2015 Goals

It's December. It's the last month of my first year of being a mom. To give you a quick recap: I weighed 271 lbs. at my 40 week prenatal appointment. I gave birth to Piper in January. I got down to my pre-pregnancy weight of 233 lbs. fairly quick, and then slowly started to gain 15 pounds of that weight back throughout the year. My highest post-pregnancy weight was 248 lbs. I am at 246 lbs. right now.

The truth is, there was no way I could put my whole heart into my weight-loss journey this year because I was too busy pouring my heart into my baby girl. I only halfheartedly tried to lose weight this first year. Even that statement might be a stretch.

This year's transition to being a stay-at-home mom, to starting up my own stay-at-home business, and now living out the every day of my new life - has been filled with new learning experiences.

My best, most useful lesson this year has been on grace. When I fall short on things, grace is there to make it better. Here is a great little post on "Grace, Not Perfection". It really helped bring things into perspective for me this year.

So, this last month of my first year of being a first time mom, I only have one goal for myself. Drink more water.

December is filled with holiday parties (one of which is happening this Saturday!), so I'm not really making a goal to lose weight. Not with all that's going on this month. However, if I drink more water each day, I think it will help make me feel better overall.

Readers, what goal do you have for yourself this month?


  1. It's so hard to get that water in every day, but boy it makes you feel better when you do! :) You can do it!
