Ok..so I finally decided to do a “before and after” picture! Many have been requesting pictures and I am sorry that I don’t have better ones to share, but I hope you can see a little difference (about 30 lbs. difference!) between the two.
The first picture was taken in July 2012 while on our vacation. We are standing in front of Mt. Rushmore! The second picture is at my parents’ home (just 15 min. away!) in June 2013 when the kids and I helped them put up a wood fence.
As many of you know, I purchased the Trim Healthy Mama book in November of 2012 and began changing the way I was eating. I lost most of the weight by early summer 2013 and have been just maintaining since then. I’d love to lose a little more, but I am more than happy where I am at right now. I went from a size 12 pants to a size 6. I don’t ever remember being in a size 6. Now I will admit that these size 6 jeans are the stretchy kind :)…but they fit! Yeah! I also went from wearing large sized shirts to mediums and smalls.
Trim Healthy Mama has been an answer to prayer for me. Now that I have the weight off, I need to start exercising (yep…the weight came off without exercising!)! I already feel so much better, but know that exercising will get me stronger and healthier.
