We have been at this 4 months...we have lost a total of 175 pounds!

We Have Been at This for Four Months.  We have lost 175 Pounds!

I can not believe how much your life can change in just a few short month!  Fawn came into our life Aug 17, our 20 year anniversary!  Look at all that we have accomplished in that time.  Not only have we lost weight, but we also have grown and changed soo much!  I look at our sedentary life we used to live and am amazed at all we do now!  If you would have told me 5 months ago that I would be lifting weights 3-4 days a week at a gym, I would have laughed in your face!  Never in my life would I have thought the gym would be such a big part of my life.  I also never would have believed Dave and I would look and feel so young.  It is like we found the fountain of  youth.  It is easy, get your life in order, get your relationship with God in order, and start exercising and eating healthy. You just need to come to a point in your life when you stop making excuses and start taking action.  If you do those things, you will look and feel better.

Good things
*Even at Christmas we are able to resist the sweets and eat right
*We are able to go out to dinner and get a healthy meal
*We were sick this week and still able to keep loosing weight

* I can't think of any!!!! Besides Dave being sick this week!

I know it is hard to loose weight around the holidays!  You can do it!  We can do it together.  When you get descouraged and feel like giving up, stop, sit down, and ask God to give you the strength to keep going.  IF you  mess up, just get right back up and start again...easy on, easy off!  I know I make it sound easy, but it can be, if you are determined to make a life change.
Thank you for all of your love and support!
