I’ve been terrible at posting lately. I’ve just been so busy with other things. Volunteering with an election campaign here, working, crafting for Christmas, doing my pre-Christmas housecleaning (which equates to spring cleaning levels), etc.
My weight loss has been slow recently, as I’ve not been exercising (well, not of the specific kind, though I think hardcore cleaning counts), and haven’t been eating as well, but am getting back into the swing of things this week.
Regardless, I’ve managed to lose… 31 POUNDS! In less than 3 months. November 17th will be the three month mark. I’ve been hovering around this current weight for about 2 WEEKS NOW. This is of course, based on my morning weight. I’ve gone as low as 214, but didn’t stay there.
So, my very first before and after pictures will be posted today (this one is for you Nanny – I saw your comment wondering where my updates had gone! :)).
On the left, is a photo taken by my four year old yesterday. On the right is a photo taken by a family member in early August, before I began my weight loss journey. As you can see… 30 pounds has already mad a tonne of difference.
It makes me cry to see this… to actually, really, finally…. see a difference. It makes it all worthwhile, and has be very motivated to get back on the exercise wagon!
Please ignore the mess in the background of the photo at left… I have a four year old boy who loves to play with boxes and make messes! 🙂 In the photo at right, that’s my husband in the background making some weird face, and my son hiding in my arms. He’s getting way too tall for that! 🙂
Anyway folks, I’ll try to get back on track here soon, and start posting food photos and exercise updates again to help keep myself accountable. I’v also gotten into sewing and crafts recently, and hope to open an Etsyh shop soon. I’ll shar the link with everyone when I’ve got it up and running.
