Hi everyone! I said I would try to keep y'all posted so I figured while I have a moment on what is going to be a very busy week I would make a quick blog for you all. Two weeks ago I joined sparkpeople and while I have not been tracking all the stuff like I did previously on Sparkpeople I have been keeping an eye on everything I eat/drink. I have been drinking a lot of water but have still allowed myself to have a mountain dew here in there so that I do not feel deprived because that is the one thing I always have trouble giving up completely. Thinking about getting one of those soda machine thingys and trying that out to help cut out the empty calories from my bubbly softdrink. :-)
Anyway, my progress a dress I put on three weeks ago which fit me decently is not a perfect fit. When I wore it to church three weeks ago when I would sit down it would feel tight around my abs and thighs; however I wore the same dress to church yesterday and it was very loose around my thighs and abs. I was extremely comfortable in the dress this time as a matter of fact I am not afraid to say it made me feel beautiful this time. I was not uncomfortable at all.
Now for the scale part, I have went from 229.8 down to 224 even if the past couple of weeks and that was with my mountain dews and having cake and ice cream on my daughter birthday party. I plan on working really hard this week if time permits with my schooling so that I do not gain weight through the holiday. I also plan to watch what I eat but I'm not giving up this homemade pumpkin pie my 14 year old son made for us at school in culinary class. I will make it a small slice though. ;)
That's my progress, I'll keep you all updated. I know we all got this regardless of the time allowed for us to put the effort in.
