25 Days Later....

I have lost 9 lbs and 1 pant size!!! I started this challenge on October 3rd. I was 257 pounds, size 20 pants and a 2X top. I was already feeling great about myself because I had lost so much weight! Part of the challenge was to take before and after pictures of yourself so you can compare the 2. I didn't see the purpose of this, what could 25 days possibly show you with your body? I'm barely notice anything after 4 months! So, I had Chris take my before shot:

Not to bad. Now, between the 2 pictures I ate the same... did my workout the same... slept the same.... drank water the same... The only thing I added to my routine was a class workout. I did them at least 3 times a week. And this is what happened in 25 days:

Do you know what I see?!?!?!? A waist for one!! I see my arms hanging and LAYING down at my sides. Not like the before picture where the don't lay down all the way. Do you know how long it's been since I've seen a picture of me like that? I'm amazed!

It's been a great journey and it's not over yet! I still have a long way to go but... I'm getting there. I have lost 51 pounds as of this morning!!! That means that I am now at 248!!! I still have 73 pounds to go. My next step is to make it to  my half way point which is only 11 pounds away :)..

I've made a lot of neat things today. I'll make sure that I take pictures and write a blog about them. I made Paleo brownies for the first time ever.. Made the kids some 'eye balls' (cookies) and have a cake in the oven that will turn into a spider web cake :).

Till next time....
