Counting Down

So yeah....I'm kinda proud of myself. With eating better and exercising a lot, I'm a shrinking woman! It's kind of nice when you look in the mirror and actually think..."Dang....I look pretty good!". It's been a looooooooooooooong time since I've felt that way. I know I have a lot of work ahead of me but here is a little layout that I did to mark my progress in counting down my sizes!

Journaling reads:

After 5 kids I have truly had the desire to lose weight and be healthy. It hasn’t been an easy process, but I am finally seeing results. I earnestly began my quest of shrinking in March of 2008. I was easily a size 14 or sometimes a 16 and weighed 187 pounds. 5 months later at the beginning of August I am pleased with my progress. I am now between a size 10 and 12 depending on the make and have lost nearly 20 pounds! My ultimate goal is to be a size 8 and weigh 155 pounds. Not bad for a mom of FIVE!

Here's hoping I can keep it up and by the end of the year maybe I'll reach my goal!

(Oh and see that super cute flower stamp! That is from my friends at Unity Stamp Company! Be on the lookout for more designs using that wonderful set of stamps!)

It is not easy eating the way we should and even harder to exercise.
So keep up the good work.

Wahoo...go Kristy! I LOve the layout and that flower stamp is so cute. I am really wanting to get some Unity stamps, they are so fun and cute!

Oh, Kristy! You are awesome. And honestly, you are what keeps me going sometimes. I have been working hard this last month all because of you! I've got pretty much the same goal as you, so we can do it, right?! I love the layout you did, it's so great that you're documenting your journey!

And I was totally laughing at your Lagoon trip and the Diet Coke problems because that very same day, Tyler had a bit much Diet Coke himself and I was wondering if he was ever going to hit the sack. Too funny!

I love the LO and I'm proud of you! I just am amazed. I need to get serious and get my butt in gear again. I lost 20 lbs since April so I think that's good but I so have a looooonnnnng way to go!

Oh YOU CAN DO IT! After my third, I started at about 191 and just worked out three times a week, at home, and ate better. I eventually fit into a size 8 and sometimes sixes! I KNOW YOU CAN! Plus, I still ate my chocolate, heehehe.
You're one hot mama!
