Ya'll remember about 6 weeks ago when I posted about making a change in my eating and exercising habits? Well here's a little update for you. Okay, I'm bragging, but we'll pretend its an update... :)
So November was a rocky month, I was sick for weeks and didn't work out as regularly as I should have. I made that dress for my anniversary that didn't fit. I was a little down hearted. At one point I almost gave up because I thought it just wasn't worth it. Then I got over myself and realized, yes, yes it was. So I switched it up a little. I'm still on the exercise bike for 30 min. a day, but before I use my Dancing With The Stars Cardio Workout dvd. It was kicking my butt, but I'm getting better at it.
Sunday I got my size 20 jeans all wet and gross by shoveling snow, so on a whim I pulled out my size 18 jeans, and I was suprised when they actually fit! The next day, I tried again and they still fit. On Wed. I put on a different pair of 18 jeans thinking maybe it was a fluke, but those fit too! These are jeans I haven't been able to wear since Jan. 2006 (before I got pregnant!) Its awesome because they were brand new too when I got pregnant.
So needless to say, I was excited. Yesterday I caved in and bought a bathroom scale because I had to know exactly what I weighed, I was thinking maybe I lost 10 lbs. and would be in the 230ies... but no, I got on and suprise! I weight 220! That's 12 lbs. under my prepregnancy weight and what I weighed at my wedding. Sure, my body is different because I've had a baby, but its still really great! 24lbs. is nothing to sneeze at!
So now I'm really encouraged. This eating right/exercise thing works! Who knew?
