Between Thanksgiving and Christmas I lost about 5 more pounds. It was a tough month. I was extremely busy with my kids and their activities, school functions that I had to attend, and shopping and preparing for the holiday. I was only able to make it to the gym maybe twice a week, which really had an affect on my loss. I finally have it in my thick head that exercise is a NECESSITY and has to be done EVERY DAY FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE in order to lose and keep weight off. I finally see the skinny girls at the gym and realize there is a reason they are SKINNY and at the GYM. It is not like you see all the skinny girls at McDonald’s and the fat girls at the gym, right?
Anyways, so this next picture is a week before Christmas when I had to attend our school’s Christmas dance. I had bought a new dress (size XL, not 3XL mind you) and I finally felt like I looked good (with the help of some spanx, but who is counting). I am down about 60 pounds in these pictures.
