Just wanted to say a big Thank You to all of you who have been so encouraging with this weight loss. You’ve all been a big encouragement.
Lora, the weight loss started some time in August, when we were living with our friends. They eat far healthier than we did, so just living with them helped. They didn’t do all the cooking (we split it half and half), but it sure is hard to fix something deep-fried for dinner when their usual is baked, stir-fried, or grilled. Everything we ate before that wasn’t deep-fried, but we did cook a lot less healthy than we do now.
We spent Thanksgiving with my family, and my mom was so accommodating with food. Everything was as low-carb and sugar-free as possible. It was wonderful. While we were there, somehow I managed to maintain my weight, which was a big concern of mine. It can be done.
Kayla – I’m not too sure about the before and after pictures. Both pictures are ones that others have taken, and they haven’t sent them to me yet (yes, I’ve asked). There are plenty that I have that would work for before pictures, but I don’t have any recent after photos. My dad took some family pictures for us this weekend, but he hasn’t had a chance to email them to me yet. Once I get them, we’ll see. I’m not done losing weight – I still have a ways to go to meet my goal weight – so I had thought of waiting until I’m done to show pictures then. We’ll see.
