What I Was Doing While I was MIA From Blogger

Ok Girls,

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...

  4. Wow! That's great. You look wonderful. Good job!

    I have been wanting to start exercising since we moved to a place that has a small weight room. There has been so much going on.

    I will have to get tough with myself and kick myself in the rear to get movin' lol

    Can't wait to see your new creations.
    Take care, Janet W

  7. Wow! You really look great! It is so difficult to lose weight, isn't it? Being healthy is most important, plus you really do look fabulous. Best of both worlds!
