How exciting! I am in your shoes too.  I  recently put on a pair of slacks that used to be skin tight and now they’re practically falling off of me! On another note, I went to my first dress fitting today and she has to take in my dress 4 whole inches! Wow! I’m pumped! I’m not too thrilled about the additional cost, but oh well!

 

I’m really just watching what I eat.  I’m not counting calories or anything, but just trying to eat more natural things like vegetables, oatmeal and fish.  It’s really helped ALOT!

I love wearing my skinny jeans! I tried the South Beach diet but I felt really awful on it! I am now one pound below my goal weight and I did it with the help of sparkpeople.com which is a free web site. No special diet – I just try to stay in my calorie range (1520 to 1870) that they calculated for me and I exercise every day for at least 30 minutes. I only lost a pound or two a week but at my age that is the way I have to do it or I will get too much loose/saggy skin. I now have a BMI of 22.1 and I am pretty happy with that! This is a pic of the first pair of skinny jeans I bought. That was 10 lbs. ago! I have since purchased a pair another size smaller! Feels great doesn’t it? Congrats!

The thing is, you really can’t just cut out everything yummy.  If you do, you’ll stick to it for about 2 weeks and then give up.  So I left myself have one big cheat meal each week and one mild meal.  For example, Friday I had the spicy chikcen sandiwch from Chick-fil-a (YUM) and then I also had bean and cheese nachos on Sunday.  And I still lost a little last week.  I have cut everything bad out in the past and then I would crash and just stop all together.  But I feel good about what I eat now!!!

 

Congrats, it’s so fun to lose weight!!! =)
