This morning I weighed myself, (like I do 100x a day) and the scale read 200.00 lbs!! It was soo exciting to see! Honestly I haven't weighed this much in such a long long time. It isn't my official weigh in, so I can't track it down yet, but I'm hoping when I go to weight in next week it's even lower!! I can't imagine being in the 100's. That will be amazing for me.
This evening some friends came over, and we had a great time! I had a very yummy hamburger and lots of veggies! I even made cookies and was able to resist having any! Yay, so proud of myself for that, and thankfully my friends ate them all so I don't have to have the temptation now. We had such a delicious dessert as well! Thank you Frances! I am glad I was able to socialize with my friends without eating too much junk food! Great time had by me!

I LOVE how much energy I have had lately! It's so fun playing with Reegan on the playground and running around with him. I feel so much more energized and simply excitable about life! I am also going to sign up for a 5km run that's at the end of October. It's just down the road from my house, and Randy will do it with me! I hope I can run the whole thing!
This post is already all over the place, so why stop here.....I made such a yummy snack yesterday! I cute a tortilla shell into little triangles, and baked them in the oven on a baking sheet for about 10 minutes, until they were crunchy. They were really good, and I ate them with salsa...so a pretty low calorie snack! I am going to do it again today! And I am going to make my own hummus today, yum yum!

I LOVE that I can already tell my exercising is paying off! I don't get winded anymore when we go for our nightly walks after dinner. I LOVE that I have been eating so many vegetables lately. I LOVE that I get excited to shop for new clothes now! Lastly, I LOVE that I am finally thinking of myself and feeling less LAZY!

On the upside of last night, Randy bought me a new jacket. I saw it at the store a week or so again and really wanted it! So I convinced him it would make a good anniversary present. After dinner we went to the mall and got it! It is pretty tight, but in a couple weeks it will be perfect!
Tomorrow is Saturday, and weekends are always hard for me to stick to my diet! Randy is home, and our routine is all out of whack. So wish me luck! I started doing pilates again as well. I tried doing it a few years ago, with results, so hopefully it will do the trick again this time! I can really feel it in my abs today, so that must mean it's working!

So far the hardest part of this 'lifestyle change' is the not eating after dinner. We (Randy and I) used to always have a snack together after the kids went to bed. Whether it was popcorn, icecream or nachos. In the winter months we had a cup of hot chocolate every single night. So now that all has to stop and it's been HARD!!!!
I recently got into crafting. It's been so much fun, plus it keeps my hands busy. I really enjoy making little things for my little Gaby! I even started a little group on facebook to try and sell some stuff. Hopefully help pay for my habit. So here's Gaby with her new paci clip.

I haven't always been fat. But as I got older the weight kept creeping on. Then I got pregnant a couple times, and now here I am. I have already lost a bit of weight leading up to this 'new Laura' but not near enough. I weigh 18 lbs less than I did when I got pregnant. So wish me luck, because my diet starts NOW!
