Still Loosing

I have been having a lot of success with loosing weight. I have been really motivated and excited about the changes I have seen. It's easier to see measure my success when I have a before picture, base weight, and waste size to compare to.

Here is a picture of me at Halloween.

Here is a picture of my today 13 lbs lighter. The biggest difference I have seen is in my waste. BUT comparing pictures made me see it in my face. I still have a long ways to go, but I have been seeing the scale steadily go down.

I did a lot of work on myself emotionally and it was time to work on myself physically.  Things I have learned, I can't deprive myself of sweets. I get them once and week and it makes it so I can look forward to Monday, but I can stay on track knowing I get to eat something sweet once a week. I have tried to go without eating any sweets and I do good for a while, but then I binge. So, I found something that works for me. 1 serving size once a week and I can control my urge the rest of the week.
Also, I really enjoy cycling class. I wish there were more at my gym because I can push myself harder, but it isn't hard on my body.

So as you know, I too have been working on weight loss and have lost (as of Monday) 15 pounds. My mom asked if anyone could see it yet, and I told her not really but that I could tell I was losing weight! Well girlfriend, you don't have my problem-- it is VERY obvious that you are shrinking! Keep up the good work; you look great!!!
