My Weight Loss

On January 19th, I posted that I wanted to lose 20lbs by the summer. As of yesterday, I have lost 17lbs.  Almost!!!!!

My next goal is to lose 20 more lbs by the end of this year. But I guess now that would be 23 lbs. 

This picture is awful, but I've been pretty please with my results. I need to really exercise and get my butt in gear to tone up.   I notice it most in my face and my legs.

A couple of things that I did:

  • Remember that it always takes a year for my body after babies. 
  • Drink way more water.  I pretty much have cut out all other drinks. Except unsweetened tea. I like that.  I don't do a lot of coffee anymore either. 
  • Vitamins. I take fish oil, vitamin b and cranberry pills. 
  • Chasing 3 kids around.  That has probably been the biggest thing. 
  • I really prayed a lot. My spiritual life has been great and I think that has really made a difference. When I get depressed I don't care how I look. I just live with myself.  I find myself more motivated now. 
  • I eat less. That's simple and makes sense right? There are times that I splurge, but for the most part I just don't eat as much.  I really love going to get froyo with Jason and the kids, so I just portion my dinner out knowing that I am going to treat myself. 
  • Support from Jason. He is my biggest fan and has never said a word about it. He thinks I'm beautiful no matter what, but it does make a difference to hear him say he notices. That's a  HUGE deal for women. 
Here is to the next 23!
