A new chapter begins

Anyone who has made a major change in their life knows how great it is to have a partner along for the ride.  Someone who had the same goals, can perk you up when you are feeling down, is there to support, and, yes, there for you yourself to support.  I always feel I can do better if I'm helping someone along the same path as myself.  For some reason it just gives me more drive in my goals.  Well, this week I have been joined in my fitness goals.  Not just running, but eating better and losing weight to feel better.  I'm so excited because, though I've had great friends there to support me along the journey, I now have my BEST friend!
Our wedding day.  I was 190 lbs, the lowest I could
remember having weighed in my life.

This summer, I was 266.  The highest I have ever been.
My husband and I will be working together to eat healthier and be more active.  This will make meal planning so much easier and *hopefully* fewer temptations. D and I are both sugar junkies. Especially ice cream and oreos, sometimes eaten separately but most of the time mixed in the form of a shake.  This will be good.  I can't wait to see how much better we both feel and I'm excited for the examples we are setting for our girls.  I hope to look like my wedding pictures again, and perhaps even better.  With twenty pounds down since this summer, I'm on my way.

  1. Good for you! Not to be a crazy fanatic about this (which I seem to be slowly becoming) but you guys should look into eating Paleo. I've been doing it for a few months, and I've been amazed at how effortless it has been to lose weight. I'm getting stronger, too. You could start by trying the Whole30 program and see how it makes you feel.
