Weight Loss Update

So the latest in the weight loss saga at our house is another HUGE milestone! I have hit 30 pounds lost! Woohoo!! I am so excited about this. I took some pictures, They aren't great because I took them myself and I could only figure out how to get the timer to 2 seconds so I had to run, not much time to pose...but you get the idea! (Please ignore the messy house)

Those are the pants I blogged about a few weeks ago, and as you can sorta tell, they are getting big on me! Yay! My incentive to myself for getting to 30 pounds is a bit of a makeover, so I will take some more pictures after the transformation next week. :)

Ryan and I have had this bargain for some time that when I could wear the dress that I wore on our honeymoon that we would go on another cruise, and I got it on this week! I wasn't sure I would ever be able to wear it again because my ribs are wider after having babies, but it zipped! I was pretty darn excited! So if there is anyone out there who loves us enough to volunteer to take our kids for a week...

Seriously! I am so jealous. Is it just diet and exercise? How long did 30lbs take? You should come with us on our cruise in 23 days!

Diane, I am so excited for you, partly because your looking great, but as your mother I also know that you are healthier! Keep up the good work. If you don't get to go on your cruise before we come home from San Francisco, then maybe we could watch the children while you do that! Love you...mom

The biggest changes I have made are more water, more fiber (benefiber dissolves in anything and you can't taste it :) ), more fruits and veggies, less carbs, and smaller portions. I am far from perfect at all of that, but it all helps! I really started working hard at the weight loss around the second week of September, so what is that? 5 months?

what about exercise?

Diane Owen said...

I've been focusing on my eating mostly because that is my #1 problem. But I try and exercise when I can fit it in (which is not enough). I use our elliptical or do some videos I have called Turbo Jam, kind of like dancy kick boxing, its fun. But, like I said, I haven't been focusing on the exercise yet. That's my next phase. I'm trying to work on a schedule for that now.
