  • It's the little things...

    Today I wore my size 8 jeans (not stretchy fabric) for the first time in nearly a year. They were perfectly snug with no "muffin top". I couldn't even zipper or button them a few months ago! I also have my face back. My real face that I remember, not the bloated, old looking face that I have been looking at for about a year. My arms are firming up and my back fat is disappearing. It truly is the little things that I appreciate and keep me going!

    What are the little things that are keeping you going right now?
    I'm a 5'-6" tall female.

    SW: 212.4 lbs. February 14, 2013 (My second baby was born)
    CW:166.4 lbs.
    GW: 143 lbs.

    Just keep going.

    New goal:

    Get back to 80-90% Primal and back down to my lowest recent weight of 158 lbs. while doing as much moving and strength training as I can get in.

    I haven't been eating great the last few days and I am still 3 holes down on my belt.

      Trying on clothes NOT in the Plus dept for the first time in 2 years. My old wardrobe is new again
      *My obligatory intro

      There are no cheat days. There are days when you eat primal and days you don't. As soon as you label a day a cheat day, you're on a diet. Don't be on a diet. ~~ Fernaldo

        I bought a pair of light capris (not forgiving AT ALL) at the end of last season that turned out to be obscenely tight so I stuffed them in the bottom of my dresser. I pulled them out and wore them yesterday and they were a bit baggy

          Knowing that the upcoming sunshine and garden-fresh veggies will fix the disaster that is my body after stress.
 My blog exploring the beginning stages of learning how to homestead. With the occasional rant.

            Looking at myself in the mirror and being surprised at the thinner, healthier face that I see. Putting my hands on my hips and realizing that there is significantly less spare tire than there was a month ago. I am almost actually touching my hips now instead of my huge waist!!
