|Over the past year, I lost a total of 36 pounds! I reached my goal in only one year, and I have maintained that loss for the last 6 months. Yay me! I'm really happy about this. All I did was get my wonderful hubby to buy me a SmartPhone, then I downloaded an app that I had heard about on TV shows multiple times: LoseIt! |
And I started counting calories and doing a bit of exercise, not much. And I made sure to stay below my calorie budget every day. That's all. It was super easy! I'm really happy with it, so I thought I'd share. I know everyone has a hard time, espc. at holiday time.
|Tonight, in honor of those small lives lost at Sandy Hook Elementary, I will shut off the lights on my Christmas tree. I can not celebrate when those families are mourning. It is an unimaginable heartbreak.|
|I'm happy to report that I've now lost 31 lbs. My goal weight is a mere 2 lbs away. I love LoseIt! Met some great friends there, too.|
|As of today, I've lost 22.6 lbs. Soon will hit my mini-goal of 25, then Jan is the target date to lose a total of 30. I love LoseIt, it's made losing weight so easy. And I'm not embarrassed to be seen any more! Yay!|
|21 pounds down, 9 to go. And the best thing is, I wasn't even tempted by the Hallowe'en candy. I had a strawberry smoothie instead. :)|
|In June, my husband bought me a smartPhone, specifically because I'd heard a lot of good things about this app called LoseIt. Well, I've been really good about logging food and weighing myself, and guess what.... |
Today I hit my goal of losing 20 POUNDS! I can't say how excited I am about this. I feel wonderful, and it was really easy. Only 10 lbs to go and I'll be back to "the real me." I just had to share this wonderful news!
|I've just edited an item in my portfolio: I spend a lot of today with tears in my eyes. This is my small way of honoring those who died in sacrifice.|
|Thank you, everyone who gave me reviews for my 11th Anniversary here at W.com. I've been offline for many weeks, but will try to catch up soon to say thank you to everyone individually. Your support means a lot to me!|
