Usually when someone posts a BEFORE & AFTER picture on a prim blog... it's a prim item... but today... I am posting a BEFORE & AFTER picture of me.
(I do actually have some pics of new prims that I will share soon, LOL)
Last Spring, I decided to create some 'ME' time... my boys are 16 now... pretty much doing their own thing and my husband and I work opposite shifts so I decided that it was a good time to do this.
Now, I work full-time (outside the home) and also I waitress part-time, too.... and as we women know... taking care of family and home doesn't leave a lot of time for much else but...
My sister had to have hip-replacement surgery (she is only 47) and is soon going in for the other one... watching her go through that made me realize that I want to be HEALTHY and energetic (although, what she went through really had nothing to do with health) but you understand what I mean.
So I decided to start exercising and eating healthy... now I had tried that before but always tanked... but this time... (watching my sister not being able to even walk for months) - it just did something to me and I stuck with it.
So, here is me in the Summer of 2011: (GULP)
And here is me in Summer of 2012: (YAY!)
I lost 23 pounds and I have to say, I feel AMAZING...
