It has been a whole year!!! Wow.  This feels really good.  When we started this a year ago I was sure I was going to be at my goal by this point.  Ha.   This is a journey of strength, patience, and perseverance.  i will always be happiest with myself  when I have worked hard.  I want to spend the next year working hard.  I am positive success will follow!!  I am so proud to be a meatball!! And amazed by my other meatball, Sara, everyday. I have absolutely loved sharing this with my friend!  We are in this together, every single pound !!!!!! I am so excited for year number two.  Love you guys, thank you for always supporting us.   Here we goo!!

Ok Sara, you’re up kitten!

So I have been talking a lot lately about how real the struggle is.  I blew back up to 273 with my need to comfort myself.  But I feel so much better now being back.  I know how to eat cake pops, I know how to eat fries.  I also know how to lose weight and it’s not like this!

I really love cooking and I really love feeling strong at the gym.  Even though I had to write another plus sign on my board, I managed to lose 7 pounds of hedonism this month.  I don’t want to lose the same weight I’ve already lost.  I’m still headed to the Grand Canyon, I just took the scenic route.  Reflecting on how far we’ve come in a year is unreal.  We honestly look like different people.  Everyday that we are doing well, I just think…we’ve never looked better and we’ve never been closer.  Jenny!!!!  You look amazing and I couldn’t love you more….is it possible that we have become even closer!?!  Thank you to everyone who has supported this erratic journey.  We will reach our goals…slowly but surely. Xoxo times a mil!

We are having the best time on this journey…even though it’s really challenging!  Thank goodness we have each other…and you!

You guyyyyyysssss…I cannot believe that I lost weight this month!!!  Especially 7 pounds.  This feels like such a huge victory.  This month was rough but I feel amazing now and I couldn’t be more recommitted!!! Not only do I feel physically healthier but I feel mentally and emotionally at the top of my game.  I can really feel and SEE such a big difference in my body. I have lost 80 pounds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  HOLY SHIT! That is the most weight I have EVER lost and you know what…I’m never turning back.  This will be a roller coaster of a journey but I am crossing that finish line no matter what.  Healthy life…here I come! I am grateful everyday for the people in my life.  Thank you to each and every one of you who take the time to follow our ups and downs.  We love you.  And Jenny, I couldn’t do this with anyone else and I certainly wouldn’t have made it this far alone!!!  I love you soooo much and I’m so excited for what’s to come.

 

Jenny…you’re up kid!!!

wpid-20141101_180626.jpgwpid-20141101_180634.jpgwpid-20141101_180647.jpgwpid-20141101_180504.jpgwpid-20141101_180543.jpgwpid-20141101_180747.jpgwpid-20141101_180254.jpgwpid-20141101_180229.jpgwpid-20141101_180223.jpgwpid-20141101_180211.jpg

Ok so it was only one pound………that’s ok. I made some bad decisions this month so I am just grateful to be down.  But I need to get my ass in gear here…losing one pound a month is not at all satisfying considering all the effort I am putting into this new lifestyle….so my junk food weekends were not worth it looking back now.   But I feel great, I love working out and I feel even better when I am eating all the right things ! It truly is a journey and I’m ready for November !  I don’t have the holiday fears at this moment.  I Will not let my sweet tooth get the best of me!!! So here’s to powerful not pitiful!!!!!

 

Whew!!! Time to colllapse!!!
