The first month I did the Medifast 5-1 program to jump start myself and teach myself portion control. I couldn't justify the cost for more than a month so I made the most of it and lost around 8 lbs the first month. I continued to lose, but a slower pace from there- even hitting plateaus as I started to gain muscle from my daily morning workouts. I found the Daily Burn program and alternating them with my treadmill runs. I had my ups and downs- cheating days and perfect ones, but I kept my goal in sight.
Almost five months later and I am down 21 lbs and four pant sizes- I'm wearing a size that I have NEVER worn before! I eat better- not just better- I am no longer controlled by my appetite or cravings. I make things like zucchini boats and cauliflower pizza (both delicious). I went to an activity with the girls the other night and totally ignored the dessert platters. I get up a 6:15am, 6 days a week and work out- something I couldn't imagine a year ago. And it feels great.
So here is the proof in the pictures. My health journey :)

Because if they do, we're waiting for one more injury.
#1- Yesterday Luca got a head cut glued after Daddy didn't check for cealing clearance before happily throwing the boy in the air when he arrived home from work. (He still feels awful.)
#2- Violet fell (jumped?) off the couch into the glass front of the curio cabinet. Just a few cuts, but the sound was awful. (I'm not upset about the cabinet - it was a hand me down that was getting pretty worn, and didn't fit with my new furniture. Great excuse to get rid of it, actually. )

I got to ride the bus with Moira (and left the kids with a sitter) which was fun- the PTO actually got us charter buses, which I figured made sense with a bunch of kindergartners who might need to use the bathroom on a 1.5 hr ride. The museum itself was great with tons of hands-on exhibits. We might make a trip up there during the summer.
It's nice to do more of these things now that Luca is older. Imagine what I'll be doing when he goes to school! :O

Won't happen again, but at least they worked hard!
