Weight loss... Finally!

I just needed to brag a little...

Starting at the beginning of July, i was working at a horse camp for kids and was working me ass off! (literally ) I still wasnt eating great, it was a lot of pasta, and sandwiches. Stuff thats easy to make for 50 people.

But, once i got home in August, i really started watching what i was eating. Lots of salad, salmon, chicken, fish, veggies, and fruit. As well, i basically only drink water and tea anymore.

Bottom line is, I've dropped over 20 pounds in 2 and a half months

For without a horse, i could not fly.

Congratulations that is a great achievement.

Now then, STOP for a moment and congratulate yourself on how much you have lost already, make a commitment that they are never coming back. Don't think about the journey ahead, just enjoy the moment.

Good for you! I'm looking at needing to lose 10-12 pounds after my trips & eating more restaurant foods. The clothes still fit, just tighter-LOL!

I wish I only had 10-12 lbs to lose! I started back on Atkins yesterday. I've been on it before and know it works, but to me, it's an expensive way to eat. Anyone else ever try it? I had this for breakfast yesterday morning

Zip Lock Omelet: Break 2 eggs into a zip lock bag, add whatever ingredients you want, I added onions, bell pepper, and cheese. You can also add bacon, sausage or whatever. Place in a pot of boiling water for 13 minutes, it was awesome!!
