My 30 day weight-loss challenge


I decided to enter a 30 day weight-loss challenge to give myself the motivation to lose a few in time for summer! The challenge was put forward by the author of a blog that I follow: The Sparkle Mama’s Blog . There are 15 of us entered and we are each putting a cloth diaper into the prize package for the top 3 mamas that lose the highest body weight percentage in 30 days. Like some of the other challengers have said, it isn’t the prize that is the ultimate goal, but the weight-loss. Getting a bunch of new cloth diapers (for those of us with addictions) would just be an added bonus! 😀 At risk of embarrassing myself, here is my entry photo (‘before’) Day 1:

Day 1!

The newspaper is for showing the date (for the purposes of the contest) not necessarily to celebrate the headline – although that was a good day!

I am doing mostly diet and some exercise (it’s hard to find time with the two kiddos and their needs -but I do when I can).

Have you entered a weight-loss challenge (in a group or on your own)? Please feel free to share any tips with me!


About hobbymamma

I'm a mother of the marvelous Olivia (age 7), the adorable Cooper (almost 3) and Wyatt (6 months). As a busy SAHM (& wife to Tyson aka 'Sarge'), I find myself with irons in many fires. Some of my time is also devoted to voluntary services for various non-profit organizations. The idea for this blog came from something I find myself thinking or saying rather often lately: I have so many interests & hobbies that I don't consider myself 'expert' at any of them. It can be frusterating on occasion, but mostly I find it refreshing and rewarding to enjoy such variety. On this blog I share bits and hints about some of the hobbies I currently enjoy. When considering some of my favorite hobbies - i've discovered that a theme that threads through many of them is green. Not necessarily the color (that too) but 'green practices'. I often find myself thinking, how can I make this more environmentally friendly. What ingredients or products are better for my family and the beautiful planet where we live. I hope you will enjoy reading about some of my hobbies and be inspired to try something new!
