Two Meatballs: Celebrating the President of The Meatballs Fan Club!!!

Before we celebrate my sweet sister,

hows about a look back over the last year?! Most of our transformation posts are exciting and uplifting and this one just doesn’t feel that way.  I thought about not doing it, but you know that just wouldn’t be us or true to our journey.  WE have to embrace the ups and the downs.  And lets be even more honest…sometimes it’s nice to be reminded sooooo visually that you don’t want to go back to where you started.  This is what I felt like all month…

Last month I obsessively looked at our pictures.  Everything was so pretty…the colors, our outfits…our smaller bodies.  This time felt…heavy, chunky, and I think I found all 11 of my pounds in my back fat. Ugh.  So, here is the 12 month progression.  We are both very much looking forward to the next weigh in and proving to ourselves that we can get back on track and feel really good again! Thanks for the support and love.  We love you that much also!

I’ll go first…

Now, its your turn Jenny!

Now the better together montage!

It really helps me to see where we started.  We both had a bit of a setback this month, but when I look at where we started the pride comes back full force and the motivation we need to get our asses in gear suddenly appears…

But on to more exciting things.  Jenny named Kelly the President of the Meatball Fan Club and I couldn’t agree more.  From day one Kelly has cheered us on…

She has literally commented the most on the blog other than Jenny and I responding to everyone!

She shows up for all of our events and is on almost every single blog I write!

She was the first person to buy a Meatball Nation tank!

wpid-img_20140924_150156.jpg

And she has even shot 3 of our weighs ins, including this last one.  She was so much fun and always got beautiful shots!

I’m not sure if Kelly has any idea how much we truly appreciate her!  She is so loyal and so supportive and such a champion for us. She has taken Jenny in as another sister and is just as committed to her journey as mine.  She never holds back a compliment and always shares her feelings and passions about our journey.  She is innovative with the shoots and she really cares about our progress.  She is also one of the funnest people on earth and her laugh will change the world.  So how do Two Meatballs thank someone who so tirelessly supports us!?  Well, with food of course.  We took Kelly out to dinner last night at Firebirds.  There was actually a wait so we sat down and Jenny said…you guys haven’t changed a bit since you were kids…which spurred us to do a picstich recreation!

#nailedit

Bahahahahahah!!!  I love it!  Jenny and I are back on paleo #thankgoodness so we ordered some healthy salads…

wpid-20150303_202137.jpgwpid-20150303_202129.jpg

And laughed the night away.  The great thing about Kelly is she can do it all.  She is hilarious and supportive and caring and she loves diving deep and discussing everything.  She is always down for a good time and an opportunity to get closer.  All of my friends and coworkers love Kelly…and lets be honest…what’s not to love?!

wpid-20150303_202149.jpgwpid-20150303_202157.jpgwpid-20150303_202209.jpg

We talked about every single thing on earth and laughed soooooo hard!!!  What a fun night!  Kelly we love you so much.  Thank you will never feel like enough….but thank you soon much for all that you do and for all the love and all the encouragement and all the ideas and your mad picture taking skills and literally everything you sweet baby angel.

To quote myself, if you don’t know Kelly, you are really missing out!

Two Meatballs: Did You Guys Know That I Have a Sister Or That I’m Dating The Cutest Guy!?

Bahahahahahahaha jk times a million!!!  Of course you know these things bc I never shut up about them!!!!  So my sweet sis…you guys she is the living best!!!  I am soooo thankful to have her in my life…everyone should be this lucky!!!  I was still feeling super ick from my no air trauma Saturday morning and this little cutie showed up at my house with some Starbucks!!!  And we decided to gallivant all around town.  Since I told her that I felt not so hot she came in jorts and a crappy t-shirt and for once in my life I had options for her to wear!!!  #progress So we played a little game I like to call…two sisters…one shirt!

wpid-img_20140816_153544.jpgwpid-mycollage_209.png

Then I tried on her t-shirt #fail!!!

wpid-20140816_103745.jpg

She settled on the Mouse tank which it turns out that this tank looked good with everything #whoknew and I rocked my #Meatballnation tank (thanks Kristen)!!!  Get yours today !https://www.etsy.com/listing/200348080/wwwtwomeatballsgetfitcom-signature-tank?ref=shop_home_active_1

wpid-20140816_113532.jpg

Then, we hopped into the car and headed to Torrid…coffees in hand!

wpid-mycollage_211.png

All of my clothes were getting a little baggy so it was time to shop!!!  First we decided to try on jumpsuits #failparttwo! #dumpinthepants

wpid-mycollage_215.png

#oooooph!  Then I tried on some jorts myself and honestly they were so rednecky and trashtastic I couldn’t commit to a pic! I know its hard to believe based on the hideous pics that we put on here but this one was shameful! #ijudgedmyself But I had a revelation that I went down a size!  These were 22’s and they were HUGENORMOUS!

wpid-20140816_113939.jpg

Then we tried EVERYTHING on!!!! #ilivefortwinning

wpid-mycollage_217.pngwpid-mycollage_214.png

I joyfully spent some money reinvesting into my wardrobe!  Then we hopped down to DSW!

wpid-20140816_123608.jpgwpid-20140816_124222.jpg

One win…one intentional fail!!!!  Then it was off to lunch at super yummy super healthy Neomonde’s where we ran into one of my first client’s ever, Johanna and her friend who had just come from a bike ride!!!  I love this girl!

 

wpid-20140816_130202.jpgwpid-20140816_130150.jpg

We both got the living yummiest, no guilt lunches and sat outside soaking up all this great weather!!! I had the chicken and steak kabob platter with fatush and corn salad!!!

wpid-mycollage_213.png

Then we went to Forever 21…bc who do we think we are!? #youbitchesareinyour30’s

wpid-mycollage_212.pngwpid-mycollage_216.png

One set of wins, one set of fails!!! And then I found these adorable shorts!!!

wpid-20140816_144305.jpgwpid-img_20140818_095514.jpg

Mama’s got a new workout outfit!!!! I wore them later in the week and honestly…look how cute! #walkofnoshame

We could literally paint fences together and we would have fun!!!! Sooo, we spent the whole day together and ate super healthy and got tons of walking exercise and lets be honest…nothing gets you sweatier than trying on clothes!!! #goodforeachother #bestdecisions Then we put on our new shoes…

wpid-2014081695190224.jpg

And hoofed (did you see what I did there) to Chilli’s for Uncle Marty’s birthday!!!! Look at this sweet family!

wpid-20140816_194017.jpgwpid-20140816_193807.jpgwpid-20140816_193748.jpgwpid-20140816_193832.jpgwpid-20140816_192533.jpg

I can’t really make a good decision at Chilli’s so we came and enjoyed the company and celebration and a heaping glass of water and then met up with my little meatball for actual dinner! Nothing makes me happier than all of my friends and family getting along! We went to Winston’s and had the yummiest salads!!! I’m going to leave this night here and Jenny is going to write about her Mommy’s Night Out on tomorrows post!!! #thefunnestdontmissout

wpid-2014081695203540.jpg

Soooooo…onto that cute guy I’m seeing…have I mentioned him yet!?!! #duhhhhh We had the funnest Sunday Funday!  We had brunch at Beasley’s Chicken and Honey.  You guys are not going to believe this but he knew like errrrryone there. #popular  #solikeable!  Brunch was so yummy I forgot to take pics…have you guys been to Beasley’s!?!  You should go…so goooood….I had The Silver Plate which was scrambled eggs, bacon and home fries…he had something that looked amazing with cornbread, eggs, collards and gravy!  And his sweet friend at the restaurant sent out the living best churros…I only had two bites #guiltypleasure Then we walked to the history museum and learned sooooo much.

Then we walked around the Capitol #itwastreeemendous and perused the shelves at Barnes and Nobles #americangirldollmagazine watched a lot of Law and Order SVU, he made a yummy little dinner of chicken fajitas #annnnndhecancook and topped the night off with Inglorious Basterds my all time fav movie…
