Here we go!

Haven't posted here in a loooooong time! Alisa- do you still get updates? K... #5 is 16 months tomorrow and hopefully health is on an upswing! So I am trying to hit it hard again and lose this baby weight! I have a LOT to lose! (Again!)  35-40 is what I would like... But I am taking it one lb at a time and not getting frustrated with myself! Needing to go back off sugar again and do 100% Paleo, so that's my plan! I've done pretty good but cheat with rice and beans and take pills to eat stuff with cheese occasionally! So- no more! Really I don't need to, it's just because I get tired and it's easier to eat with everyone else! But I have so many delicious foods I can eat that is ok worry! I just need to get back into the mentality that I am worth the extra time!:) here we go!

Wooo hoooooo!!!!!  I am 2 lbs below my goal weight!  I am so excited!!!   I have been doing "Paleo" for almost a year now and I feel so so so much better!  I have Paleo in quotes because I do have sugar sometimes and I do eat a lot less meat than Paleo typically emphasises, I focus mainly on eating veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, and eggs;)  It is such a relief to be off all the thongs I was allergic to!  Hooray!!!

I am in love with THIS ARTICLE. Be sure to read part one as well! This is pretty much what I have been going through. I have so much energy not eating all the things I was allergic to, plus I am much thinner than I was! I still want to get thinner but I am not worried, that will come! The thing is, I havn't really lost any weight! No one ever believes that - but it is true!!! It was getting really frustrating so I am so glad to read this and realise I am not alone!!!

For Alisa

Ok - these pics are pretty terrible but I took them myself when I had a few seconds and thought of it.... This is how I look currently - I do still have a bit more I want to lose, but things are going good!!!!

This one was an accident - but I thought it showed my weight loss pretty good;)

Nearly there!

I wish that before I had started working out I had had my hubby help me measure myself! I think it would be a really great reality check! I am going to still do that and as I continue I can see better how things are going! I am not just 2 lbs from my original goal weight!!!! Woo hooooooo!!! I set that weight because I thought it was more realistic as a Mom of 4 kids than the rock bottom of my weight range - and now I am ALMOST there!!!! (although, my goal weight now IS my rock bottom healthy weight....) Yay! I am just excited, more because I like to feel a sense of accomplishment than anything else, because my self image has really improved lately. Why? That is kind of weird... I eat so healthy that I simply have no guilt about that, and I just have learned that I have more self control and am stronger than I ever realised - and it is a good feeling! I feel that I have forged some great friendships and I am grateful for those, it is amazing how strong friends can help you feel. I also am just in such a great place right now with my husband and kids... life is great! Not without problems and issues, but still - great!

Celebration time!!!

Woo hooooooo!!!! I am back into my favorite (and smallest that I saved) pair of pants! I am so stinkin excited!!! The funny thing is that even though I have been getting smaller, I havn't lost much weight yet. But I look smaller, and feel better - so all is well! Hooray!
