But something awesome that did happen while I was there (outside of getting to 20 lbs lost) was that there was a pair of jeans I had that I couldn't even get over my thighs in October. On a whim, I tried them on--THEY FIT. And not only did they fit, they were even a little big!
Today these jeans are way too big and I officially have no pants that fit me. It's kind of ridiculous, but I guess in a good way? It's a great reason to have to go buy clothes, but still--I don't like spending a lot of money on myself. I'd rather spend it on my family or on Gracie or just save it. I've gotten myself to buy a few shirts but that's all I can get myself to do right now. Baby steps I guess. HA!
Since we have been in Georgia something crazy happened. I finally dipped & stayed in the 130's!!!
I am finally in the 130's and I honestly could cry.
As of a few days ago I am 136 lbs. That is THREE pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight and TWO pounds away from 30 pounds of total weight lost!! I am feeling pretty good and starting to finally notice a difference in my arms which is honestly my biggest struggle area because I have never had skinny arms. So I am happy to finally see a difference in them.
Truth be told, I haven't been doing a ton of exercise lately. But I have been unpacking our house and chasing after a rambunctious two year old, so I guess that's what has been working for me. But I have been eating good and really watching my calorie intake. Lean cuisine's have been a BIG help for me and 100 calorie snack packs. I have also been drinking a ridiculous amount of water. Kind of have to since we are in the hottest state freaking EVER. Ha!
I plan to start doing my exercise DVD's starting Monday again, and I've been looking for a good dance studio here so I can get back into dance. Great exercise and good for my soul!
I am honestly so proud of myself that I have come this far! I can't wait till I can say I am FINALLY at my pre-pregnancy weight. I am so dang close!
P.S. Kristen? Are you there? Ya, couldn't have done this without you girl.
