One of our customers emailed me recently and told me that she had noticed in my pictures on Facebook that I had lost weight and asked me to share about it. So….. here I go!
Over the years of writing this newsletter, you’ve seen me say several times that I was going to get in better shape, take better care of myself, start eating better, lose weight, blah, blah, blah, blah. Well, every single time I said that, I tried. I really did. Sometimes I even succeeded for a few months. However, THIS time…. WOW! I feel better than I have EVER felt in my life. And I did NOT go on a diet. All I did was start listening to my body. Sounds weird, right? I started really evaluating how certain foods made me feel when I ate them. I also started noticing when I was full and not continuing to eat if I didn’t really feel hungry. Sounds too simple, right? It turns out that I really do enjoy more fruits and veggies than I even knew! I’ll be posting more later…. but wanted to share before and after pictures. Now, I’m NOT done…. still have some weight to lose….. but I am so excited about the progress!
Want to see some BEFORE and NOW pictures? Remember that I’m only 4’10″ tall! Here I am with my mom at 188 pounds:
And here I am with mom at 148 pounds a couple of weeks ago:
It’s so exciting to see the difference that 40 pounds makes! I have about 20-25 pounds to go, but I know I can do it this time ~ and KEEP it off! I’ll keep you posted!
