My own personal brag ...

Well, I have a small brag...I had to go out and buy a few pairs of shorts yesterday. I guess that would not usually be a reason for a brag but I have lost about 15 lbs in the last 6 weeks. My shorts that had been straining at the seams could now come on or off without unzipping them, so figured they needed to go. LOL. It is amazing how even after the first ten or twelve pounds I was running our first trial and it was so much easier, I did not feel as out of breath and it was just easier. Who knows if it is the weight loss or the fact that I am not eating as many processed foods and have much more stable blood sugars, but what ever is making me feel better, it is nice and I really notice the difference.

I have known I needed to make changes in my life but I just felt like I wanted to pick the right time, so I could be truly committed, and not feel like I was fighting with my body, I knew I needed to feel ready. I was at class on my way home and just started right then, not sure why that was the time... but it has been six weeks and I have stayed totally on program ;-). I am really just trying to not put pressure on myself and take it one day at a time, but I am feeling proud! I have lost two sizes but not at the point anyone seems to have noticed....but I sure do.


A few pictures of Cricket playing-I put some of these on facebook but have not posted any Cricket pictures on here in days, so....

Congratulations on the new shorts and the 15 pounds!! That's great news! I am glad to hear it is making you feel better and run faster! Processed foods are so easy to make but so bad for our bodies. Why can't healthy stuff be as easy? LOL!
