Day 76. Holy Hannah! You guys, we have come a long way. Just the other day Lindsay and I were talking about how our lives have changed, and in so many more ways than in our appearance. A noticeable change is in our cravings, before we would eat chips and cookies when a craving hit, now we crave juicy watermelon and tart raspberries; craving what we can’t have can be difficult but we know the payoff will be sweet. {I have not taken a “after” selfie for the purpose of this series, but if you are at all curious on how I’m looking these days you can see here, […]

Weight Loss UPDATE :: Day 52

…I would like to thank my family for always standing behind me, and cheering me on as I ate the 2 slices of bon-bon cake on father’s day. My subconscious that insured me I deserved the additional treats through out the week; and the wonderful woman at the grocery store who gave me a kit-kat “on the house” to congratulate me on the weight loss.

Weight Loss Update :: Day 36

Seeing is believing they say, and if you can’t see it let me explain. It’s my time to easily snap, to cry over spilt milk, and to over analyze every situation. You guessed it, I’M BLOATED! …good things comes to those who sweat. This past weekend as some of you know I was on a mini-vacation with ‘la familia‘ in Whistler {here, here, here, and here}. I stuck faithfully with everything I was supposed to, alternating days with pure protein and protein and vegetables, including snacking on veggies on the road trip there {vs. the burger king the rest of the car was enjoying}. As I knew […]
