Weight loss update...

I know things have been fairly quiet on the weight loss front.

But I weighed in yesterday (after a two-week hiatus) and was down another four pounds, for a total of...

... 26.2 pounds.

That's over a quarter of my ultimate goal in right at eight weeks, and I can definitely feel the difference.  Clothes are looser, my face feels thinner, and I've got more energy than I've had since before I got pregnant.  Plus, the degree to which my thighs rub together when I walk has decreased substantially.  Can I get an amen to that?

While it hasn't been a cake walk (ha!), it's also not the hardest thing I've ever done.  Not by a long shot.  I'm obviously allowing myself some indulgences, and I'm definitely eating more cheese than I am technically allowed.  (Which is none, in case you were wondering.  How would one survive without cheese, I ask you?).

But I'm really, really proud of what I'm accomplishing.  And I have every faith that I'll be able to cross #18 off my 30 Before 30 list before August 2015 rolls around.

Because I truly am trying to adjust the way I approach food.  Though I know I will always harbor an unadulterated love of all things delicious, I'm attempting to see food as a means to an end, rather than the end in and of itself.  For me, that's working for now.

Thanks again for being such amazing cheerleaders for me on this journey.  I know that a big part of the reason things are going so well is the support and encouragement I find here every day.  You gals are amazing. :)

ha! a cake walk! Congrats on your success. Jealous! Thanks for the reminder that I need to START. I plan to work on it after our house is finished. Right now I feel like life is all over the place and I don't have a good schedule. Should be about one more month!
