I hope everyones year was great! Mine was great this year. I learned a lot of new things, my life has progressed considerably since last year, and I met friends that I think I will keep the rest of my life. I'm gonna watch the ball drop tonight but I will probably celebrate it on sunday. Sunday is what I call my cheat day, it is the day I can eat whatever I want to, regardless of my diet. Actually I wouldn't really call it a diet it's more of a lifestyle change. I'm not really omitting certain things I just don't eat crap often. Like sweets, soda's, or horrendous amounts of salt, sugar, fat, carbs or calories. I believe in everything in moderation, along with a steady workout plan and lots of nutritional education. I have lost a considerable amount of weight since I began this lifestyle change. I have gone from over 200 lbs and a size 20 jean to a healthy 165 lbs and a size 14 jean... and I'm only halfway there. I still have to get to my goal weight of 125 lbs, which is the weight I was at before I started gaining. Here are some photos. First is what I used to look like at 125 lbs, what I gained to which is 200+ lbs and where I am now at 165 lbs. If you are trying to lose weight and want to know my secrets, comment or send me a message and I will be thrilled to share them with you. My husband is working on a book to chronicle our journeys in hopes that someone will be helped. Thanks for reading and I hope that you all have a great night. Be safe and remember to keep on crocheting!
