Weight Loss Update

I thought I'd give you a quick update on how my "diet" is going.

I've been doing this routine now for about 6.5 weeks or so, I think....I've kinda lost track, it could be 7. I'm not sure. :-) At any rate, I'm doing really well so far. I am down almost 17 pounds, under my pre-pregnancy weight, can fit back into all of my regular clothes and some clothes are even too big now! I'm actually fitting into some pants I didn't fit into a good while before getting pregnant. Woo hoo!! That is the BEST feeling! I'm almost 13 pounds away from my original goal, but I am going to revise my goal and go for another 5-10 pounds after that. I was in just about the best shape of my life when I got married a little over 5 years ago, and that is where I want to be again. I also want to take up running again and tone up.

I'm pretty proud of myself and I knew if I just committed to it, I'd make it happen. I'm not gonna lie, I'd KILL for a big bacon cheeseburger right now! I plan on rewarding myself with one, but not until I hit my original in about 13 more pounds. Of course, I'll get right back on track after that burger, but I do think it's important to reward yourself every now and then so you don't go out on a binge and completely ruin all your hard work. I also need to make sure I drink some Pepto or something beforehand because I can only imagine what that burger will do to my stomach. Eeek! It's not used to stuff like that anymore. ;-) I wish I had thought to take a "before" picture back when I started, but I totally forgot. I will put up a picture of me around the time I started, along with an "after" picture when it's all said and done, to compare.

And I can't leave without showing you this adorable video we made last night of Hudson and Bryant (our Boxer). It's hilarious!

Y'all have a great Thursday!
