40 lbs. and counting!

To date, I have lost 40 lbs which is equal to the number of new humans in the photo to the left.

It's been an arduous journey to say the least. Starbucks is a thing of the past as are the Friday donuts.

Do I feel better? Honestly? Not really. The reason for the weight loss was partially for vanity but the real impetus was my "broken" digestive tract. I literally spent years in pain and in February after an Endoscopy and finger-waggin' by my Gastroenterologist, I decided to follow the doc's instructions by "Eating to Live" not "Living to Eat".

With the weight loss, came the need to purchase clothes that fit! I am quite relieved to discover that I no longer need to purchase "big gal" clothes. Gone is the need for fabric that stretches . I can actually wear a belt without looking like a dork.

Will I keep the weight off? Only time will tell but as of right now, it's my intention to see "how low I can go"

Congrats on the weight loss! I could stand to lose some myself, just too lazy to get around to doing it.
