So, this Ragamuffintop thing I've been doing the last 6 weeks seems to be helping! Last week I told you that the scale didn't reflect how well I thought I had done. Apparently my good news was waiting to show it's head this week. Here's a little recap:
I started trying to lose some weight just to feel better and be more active. I wanted to weigh 175 and thought that was attainable from my 203 that I was at in March. I'm pretty sure I was still over the 200 mark mid-April. The first week of May I became conscious of what I was eating and how much of it was going in my mouth. I tried to get 6 small meals a day, but with 4 boys that was near impossible. I get 3 squares and maybe 2 snacks a day now and that's going well. I've been able to walk, walk, walk and walk some more and we've been biking around town, too.
So, from May 1st to July 4th I've gone from 203 pounds to 179 pounds. Size 16/18 to a SIZE 12!! I'm needing to tone and work on getting in more cardio, but I'm thrilled at the progress I've made in only 2 months.
