I totally get you on the cleaning thing. we have my sons first birthday party (can't believe he'll be one already ) next saturday so we'll be doing some cleaning next week for sure. not looking forward to it at all. i have a cleaning lady but we haven't been able to afford her lately so we'll be doing it all ourselves. i don't allow shoes in the house and am good at picking up througout the week so its not as bad as it could be but still not looking forward to it. i HATE cleaning the bathroom too! ick!

then i probably wont deep clean again until the end of july as i am hosting a party for a friend whose getting married lol.

WOW what a difference! Lookin good mama! Isn't it awesome how this lifestyle affords us such awesome physical changes even when numbers don't reflect it. While 25 lbs is alot of weight, look at all those changes going on with your body! Doing low fat I don't think we ever get those kinds of results. I love it!!!!!

I'm sorry that the showing didn't go as well as expected. Next year will be your year of everything YOU. By next year think how different you will look. Yeah baby!! Is there something online that I can look at that belongs to your jewlery?

Have a beatiful day with the kiddos!

Good evening ladies.....

Went and met a friend today. We took the kids to applebees for lunch, I had a chicken caesar salad without croutons and before getting to lunch I had drank 64 oz of water. Then a glass of water with lunch. I had gotten DD2 a pizza and took the cheese off of two of her pieces and ate it. BAD idea... I was parched all day long and so was she. She drank two sippy cups of water this afternoon and I couldn't get enough to drink. I'm sure the scale will be the same in the morning. That darn pizza must have been loaded with sodium.

After lunch our plan was to take the kids to the park and then walk the walking track. Well we made it half way around the track and the kids wanted to play. So our good walk turned into an ok one. Tomorrow I am going to do some weight work and some cardio.

I didn't drink enough water yesterday and the scale was up a little. I saw 200 again, but I'm not claiming it.

Lexi~ Next Sat, the 23rd??? WE are having my daughters 2nd birthday party on that same day. Her birthday is the 22nd but we always have our parties on saturdays for some reason. They grow so fast. I still can't believe she is talking and giving me attitude already. Where did my baby go???

Danielle~ I just love how our bodies can change with exercise and our low carb protein. Its amazing. As I was looking at our progress pics last night I was amazed. Too see this kind of result in such a short time is just amazing!!! I just love that. Next year it will be all about me!!! I was thinking ahead last night, as I do when I look at my pictures and then start calculating where I could be by certain points and it just blows my mind. ATKINS ROCKS!!!! As for my jewelry. I do not have an online gallery. But do have some other stuff. Do you have your email listed on your profile? I can email you some stuff. or pm me your email if you want.

I missed a day and those fab pics!

Go miss. legs! Wanna trade ? I had no idea that 25 pounds could make such a difference! That's it! I think that I need to take some pics quick. I want to do what you did and find something that I can wear in progress pics that will show the difference. I'm just so afraid to get in front of the camera!

Do you have before pics of you at your highest to compare?

I still totally consider you in onederland. You earned it!

Melissa~ Aww, Thanks!! I'm starting to feel pretty good in this new body. Its crazy how you wouldn't think 25 lbs would make that much difference and then you look at it and its like wow. As for other pics...I do at the beginning of journal and throughout here and there, but I will bring one over and post all three together tomorrow. Eyes are glazing and its time for bed.

Wow! Such a change in a short time!

You youngsters can do anything you set your mind to... & I am so proud of you!

It is a funny thing for me... I look at me & see the same old bod that has been there for years... sags & bags still in all the same places.... the mirror is not kind to me (especially with little or nothing covering it)... however my scale is kind as long as it is under 169.9... my clothes are kinder... I still wear my 14 shorts (not mini) because I refuse to spend $ on stuff to wear around when not going somewhere special... THEY ARE THE MOST KIND! That is when I realize the loss of #s... I just love to grab the side and pull them out... it is fun to look back and remember... I still have one 16... maybe someday I will put it on just for fun to look back in time...

Save that dress in the back of your closet.... someday it will hang on you like a curtain.... you will be able to look back in time & say NEVER AGAIN!

So proud of your determination!!!!

Faithful~ Isn't it crazy how fast low carb can change your body. I will definitely be hanging on to it to go back to and use for future pictures. Thank you so much.... I'm pretty proud of what I have accomplished so far!!! I think this year, you should get atleast one new outfit that fits really good and makes you feel HOT..... and then put on those size 16's too and take a picture to have for you or to post.

Amber~ Will do, you have a great one as well!!! Truth be told, my sister is like yours a bit too. Its crazy how two people can be so different and were raised in the same house. Craziness.

You can be beautiful at any age. Real beauty comes from with in any how . I love seeing older women who age gracefully and look so classy. It is its own type of "hot"

Had a great weekend.

Sat~ Worked outside all day with kiddos. Went and bought flowers and planted some of them. Then the kids went to my mom and dads and Jason and I went on a date. We went to a late dinner at BW3's. I got the naked chicken with medium sauce and even though we both wanted beers, we got waters instead. Then we went to the movies and saw Thats my boy with Adam Sandler. It was the stupidest movie I have seen. I thought it would be so good with Adam Sandler in it. I usually like his movies, but this one was terrible. DH agreed with me. We had flipped between this movie and what to expect when you are expecting and we should have went to the what to expect.... I'm sure it would have been better.

Sun~ Got up and went to ZUMBA class. It was good, but the instructor wasn't in her normal kick our butt mood(probably too much partying the night before) so the workout was good, but not as good as it usually is. Then we went and picked up the girls at my parents and we all hung out there and visited for a little bit. Then home to work outside and get things ready for Alayna's bday next weekend. DH made a sandbox, now we need to get some sand for it. My mom and I planted some flowers. Then my dad and Dh's dad and brothers came over for a cookout. DH and I had burgers and mushrooms and everyone else had the other stuff. Everyone left, we all got showers for the night and to bed we went.

It was a great weekend and the scale read 199 this morning. Drank water, but not enough this weekend.

Hi Mel! Sounds like you had an active weekend, thats great! Sorry your instructor was hungover lol! Yes the bday party is this sat, how funny that you'll be having your daughter's bday party that do too! We always do saturdays as well. My sons bday isn't actually until the 30th but my daughter couldn't be there on that day so we had it a week early. I'm really looking forward to it and thinking about making jello shots haha.

It sounds like you had an awesome weekend! I wish I had the patience to grow anything...I just dont
I debated about the Sandler movie until we saw a preview for it when we went to see Prometheus..and said nope. I wanna see the expecting movie, looks cute! I was too obsessed with Rock of Ages tho to bother with it LOL Maybe this weekend. The following weekend is Magic Mike... I miss B-Dubs!! Ours closed down almost literally overnight, my most fave place for wings n beer! I tease Bryan that I have to go all the way to MT to go have it in a few weeks.. he didn't laugh
