Less is Moore!!

Well, I have finally worked up enough motivation to get rid of some of me...ok, a lot of me!!! lol Last year was a busy year for me, and I was very active in the weight gaining area! hah!! A lot of things contributed to it, some more than others, but putting all that aside, I definitely gained 20 pounds in one year! NOT COOL!!!!

SO, Monday I started Weight Watchers! I love Weight Watchers because it forces me to be more conscientious about What I eat, and also How Much I eat. It allows me freedom to eat what I want, in moderation, but it also helps me realize some changes that need to be made!

My goal is to lose 30 pounds by my birthday...which is June 15th. I know I can do it! The first is always easier to get off, (I have already lost 4 pounds in just 3 days!!) so I have set a goal to lose 15 by the end of March...which is also Mom Prom! YEA!!!! Gotta be a Hot Mama!!!

I saw on a few of my friends blogs those little tickers that calculate how much you have lost, and how much you have left to lose! I'm planning on putting one of those up! I'm going to update it once a week...I guess every Monday, since that's when I started!!! Please keep me in your prayers...and root me on! Because I need constant motivation!!!!

On to other parts of me that I'm "getting rid of", I am changing my last name back to Moore. When I got divorced, I opted to keep Potter so that Colton and I would have the same last name...because I figured it would be easier! Well, I've come to realize that It Doesn't Matter!! lol And if I ever get married again, I want to come to my new husband as my father's daughter, instead of my ex-husband's ex-wife! Makes sense to me!! lol Anyways, I've wanted to for over a year now, and I'm actually doing it. It should all be final in a few weeks! I'll keep you posted!!

So, that's it for now! Be on the lookout for my Weight Loss Ticker...and watch it move!!!!


  1. Good luck good luck good luck! I will cheer you on!
    You already are a hot mama! If you need a workout buddy i'm in!

  2. You rock my face off :) I just love you to pieces! So happy for all of your new changes, although, I agree with J that you ARE a hot mamma! But I know these things will make you a happier you and that makes me a happier me :)

    I'm in on losing 15 with ya! whoohoo! lets DO IT!

  3. YAY! You can do it!
    I have learned it has to do with consistency, especially the first couple weeks. Those are the hardest. I also think you lose the most in the first couple weeks so that helps urge you on.
    My friend Abby who is also doing WW told me that it's not a diet, it's a lifestyle change. Its something that you can incorporate into your eating lifestyle for the rest of your life. I really wanted to go to Olive Garden for Valentine's day but found out that the food that I wanted was over 35 points....and that was just the entree. So it just opens my eyes to the "bad" food out there. We also don't eat out much because if I'm going to spend money out I want to eat something good. lol
    Good luck!! Maybe we can throw out some snacks that we like.
    Congrats on the name change, I really think that's a great idea.

  4. Love all the changes! Very proud of you! You can do it! :)


  5. I LOVE this! You can do it sweet Seastar! And I LOVE that you will be a Moore again. I almost cried reading the part about being your father's daughter! Love you! And thanks for your blog about me! I really hope everyone's prayers can pull me through to have passed that thing!

  6. You are worth every effort! Keep up the good work (out), and the sound reasoning. You are precious in the Lord's sight and ours too. Help me to help you. I want to do my part. I love you soooooooo much. Mama

  7. yay! do it! do it! i'm also on a diet, and actually sticking to it--it's hard work! looks like alotta us are working towards the same goal and same timeline!! good luck with everything! =)

  8. I love the ticker and I love weight watchers.... you are going to do awesome!!!!!! You loose weight and I am going to gain weight, awesome!!!! You can teach me tips when it is time for me to loose the baby weight, I am going to need them!
