Hellloooo!!   Im holding strong at 174!  Thats ok…..I worked out a lot this month!  Working hard again feels good!!! I felt so much more confident going into this weigh in this month then i did last month.  I had a lot of events this month too!!  San Diego, my sisters bday, and brothers bday!  I am always reminded at the end of the month that my lifestyle has changed so much.   And i have more control then i have ever had.  But also, tomorrow is a new beginning and i look forward to being better. Cant wait for july!!  Best month ever!!!  I have to say my husband has been fabulous and incredible supportive.  He has actually kept my really motivated this month to be better!! Love you babe.  Love you Sara for always being there!!!   Love my family and life!!!!  Thank you guys for being my therapy.  this is the best release!  love you!

 

Sara, you’re up Kitten!

I feel great! I have learned so much about myself, patience and trying new things this month! I’m obsessed with Pure Barre. I am so excited to see Sandra this week. I was overall having a fantastic month. Having my quarterly period, going on vacation and going to a lavish wedding the night before weigh in derailed my numbers, but I’ve honestly never felt better. I weigh exactly what I did for the June weigh in last year, but my scale, body, mind and life are finally moving in the right direction and thank goodness for that.  I find myself in a more peaceful, positive and accepting place in my life and it just feels so fucking good. On to August and the rest of this fabulous life.  I will never stop being eternally grateful for my family, friends and the meatball nation. Xoxo to y’all! Enjoy the summer.

What a fun day!

first off….Thank you Tiffanie!  I had so much fun!!  So I’m just going to say it.  I love some of these pictures and some of them I HATE!!  and guess what…..i know why,  because I’m up 13lbs from my lowest weight and i can feel it and see it.   But i have also never been happier in many ways.  I have so much to be grateful for! Great family, friends, husband, daughter, tina myles, amazing job….with all this good stuff around me, i guess i have slacked on taking care of business and just lived in the moment a little to much!  This journey is still going, And I can’t wait to see what June brings.  I want to look at each picture and know i worked really hard. This is definitely a great photoshoot and so happy to be apart of this amazing thing we got going on!!  as always love you sara..would have never done this without you!

Sara, you’re up kitten!

Ok, I can see now that you can’t read my board! Haha Starting weight was 292, Current Weight  280, I gained 10 pounds lost 12 pounds netted 2! I’m glad to have lost weight, but I hate that I have to keep relearning lessons about not losing the same flipping ten pounds.  No matter, there is FINALLY a minus on my chalkboard and I am so thankful for that.  Whatever it takes to keep plodding on this journey is what I am married to right now.  I feel way more  connected with Jenny, the gym and the kitchen and it feels soooooo good thank goodness!  What a beautiful setting we had today.  Looking through these pictures, I felt beautiful I also felt big.  I don’t like that feeling.  I know what it feels like to be smaller and I want that feeling again and I’m going to have it.  June…you are mine.  Thanks to everyone who keeps encouraging us and reminding us that this is real life.  And to Jenny, what would I do without you.  This is our month.  We are back…once again haha!  Love you all!

We couldn’t end this day without a good old fashioned flower fight!

wpid-img_0650.jpgwpid-img_0644.jpg

Go to our instagram page if you want to see Jenny brutally beat me with flowers! Thank you Tiffanie for shooting us today! You made this so much fun and you had such great ideas!  Thank you for being an inspiration to us on this journey! XOXO

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!

#guiltyascharged #itsglutenfreedammit

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!

I have never felt this good before…like ever in my life.  I feel proud, confident, sexy as hell…I feel beautiful and I feel like I earned every single feeling that I’m having right now.  I never knew that I could be this girl…healthy, getting fit, full of integrity, strong, so inspired to be a better person, wanting desperately to pay it forward.  There is a line in the Beyonce remix of Flawless that my sister and I are obsessed with and she says…”I wish everyone could feel like this” and I do want that!!!  I want to spread the joy and confidence that I feel to every single person I come into contact with.  You guyyyyyys…I’m down 90 mother bitchin pounds that I will never see again.  Here’s to 100…I don’t know if I will ever stop crying when that day comes. The amount of gratitude we feel towards every single person that reads our blog and checks in on our progress is overwhelming.  You guys have no idea how much it helps us stay focused on our goals and thank you will never feel like enough, but we thank you anyways. Xoxo times infinity. Love, Sara #meow #loveyoujenny

 

Jenny…you’re up Bunny!

Hellllo!!!! I feel incredible!!!!   And I gained two pounds!!!!  I don’t feel defeated…..I worked really hard to only gain 2 pounds.  I knew December was going to be hard……but damn it was really hard and yet sooooo fun.  This has been the most amazing experience of my life. I am doing more then I ever expected, I am no longer walking through life….I AM RUNNING!!!  Every day I wake up to take on the challenge, and I am addicted.  This journey is evolving everyday and I am so grateful to be open to it physically and emotionally.  I will get to my goal.  Being patient with myself is becoming my biggest challenge. I have never been this excited for today and tomorrow!!   This is really becoming about living.  The struggles make the success that much sweeter. Thank you for your support!  This growing circle of friends and community are huge to our success and we couldn’t do this without you!!  Cheers!! Muuuahhhh

Another weigh in down!!!  We love y’all soooo much!

So we made it through the holidays. I’d like to think I did well but I did gain 5 lbs. Had trouble resisting temptation. Oh well I guess it’s all part if the ebb and flow of my journey. I’m back at the gym now trying to bulk up on my muscles and still burn fat. We shall see.

Enough fooling around…you guys ready for the result!? Sara…you’re up kitten!

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!!!!!

Two Meatballs: One Piece, Tankini, Bikini…Oh My!!! (aka the 7th Weigh In)

wpid-20140927_154646.jpg

It’s that time again!!!  This month we knew I was going to be on vacation for our weigh in…so we had the most genius idea ever…Jenny came down and we did the shoot on the beach!!!! We are soooooo smart!  So let me just say before we get started…when two super grown women are being photographed in bathing suits on the beach frolicking and holding hands…people assume that you are a happy couple taking engagement photos!!!  We were cracking up!  But now onto the main event!  Lets see that chalkboard!!!
