I am 25 pounds less the girl i used to be!

SO.... I have been working on losing weight... I gained 45 pounds while i was pregnant with cash, and when my weight plateaued after delivery (when i stopped peeing everything off) i was 15 pounds more than i had been when i got pregnant with him. (and i weighed more when i got pregnant, than i should have!) I am now 10 pounds LESS than i was when i got pregnant with him! YEAH! I still have 5-10 pounds to go, but i think 25 is a milestone and i just can't ignore it! :) Plus i am feeling great! Diet and Exercise really does work!

It has been motivating too, to have Coleman gone. It gives me a reason to want to look better, and a time frame. Makes it easier to set goals. (I am so excited to see him! only 3.5 WEEKS!!) Plus Wii Fit has been tracking my progress. It has been kind of fun really! Looking back. Okay so there were days that i wanted to just give up, but now i am glad i didn't!

This is wht 25 pounds looks like:

Each bag of flour weighs 25 pounds




















25 Pound Fish



















25 pound Turkey!




















Kooper's about 25 pounds. Well... Maybe not quite...

























25 Pound Kitty!



















3 Gallons water =approx 25 pounds

Yippe! I think that I found those spare 25 pounds though-j/k! I would love to loose 25 pounds also-maybe even more but I am greedy!
I was going to call you this weekend but got busy doing other things. Hope your phone starts working.
