A New Look

There is a reason I rarely post photos of myself. Over the last few years I have not been happy with the way I looked, because I could not shake the weight that pregnancy and post-partum baby holding (she would not sleep during the day unless I held her!) added. But now I am happy to say that I am down under 160lbs again, thanks to a combo of a new medicine with a weight-loss side effect, eating less, and chasing The Precious even more. That girl can ZOOM! At 5 feet 5 inches tall, I am still not at a healthy weight, but I am getting there, and that makes me happy.

I am even able to finally get rid of my size 14-16 clothes and wear a dress that claims to be a medium. It's lying--it is huge! But it makes me feel better anyway lol.

So take a look at the slightly smaller, twenty-something pounds lighter version!

Will I ever get back to the 113 pound body I had when I met my husband? I really doubt it and really don't want to anyway. Curves are nice to have! I am just proud to be getting a little healthier. It really does feel better to be a bit lighter--I can breathe better, for instance.

So to everyone who is trying to lose weight, don't give up! It is possible as long as you are willing to keep trying. :)
