And now for the good part. Maybe you have an idea? If you don't follow my blog, you won't and that's ok. I will brag anyway. I Made My Goal! Amazingly enough it was accomplished while I was flat on my back too! I am now 144 lbs. I am a solid size 6 and a small shirt size. I have lost a total of 97 lbs and 50 inches. My BMI went from a 37 to 22. And baby...........I am H.O.T.! Well, I think so at least! The bummer deal? I did it while in the midst of back problems. I have yet to celebrate or reward. I kept saying it will happen but the first time I felt like I celebrated was when I asked a friend of mine to do our family pictures. He offered to do model shots of just me! He knows how hard I have worked and new I needed that special day to celebrate. (I am also helping him to make his goal weight too!) I plan on going dancing in a few weeks when my back is better to move my boo-tay. In October, Andy and I are going on a vaca together as my reward. I am about to show you my before and after. And you are about to pick your chin up off the floor...........
Yep! That's me! And yes there are Three after pictures cuz I just can't pick my fav. Yeah Me!
So you're probably wondering why our blog is titled Beauty and the Beast. On our second date, Andy and I watched Beauty and the Beast and ate brownie sundays. I knew that this was the man I could marry if he could watch a Disney movie and didn't make me feel bad about eating junk! We married and have three wonderful children. We are greatful to be surrounded by family and friends! We hope that you enjoy keeping up with us through our blog.
