Put a few pounds on this body. Some of you know that I have been working hard to lose some weight.....so far I have taken off 26 pounds and I can tell you that it has been a good thing.
Last year when I went to the doctor for a physical my sugar was up a bit and coming from a family history of type II diabetes, I knew it was time to do something about the extra weight I have been carrying around or face the unpleasant consequences. Having seen a friend this summer who had dropped a significant amount of weight on the south beach diet, I decided to give it a try, especially since it works well for someone facing diabetes.
The holidays have definitely been a bit of a challenge though for sure! I sailed thru Thanksgiving without gaining nary a pound, but Christmas and all of it's goodness snagged me a bit. Thankfully since Thanksgiving I have only put 3 pounds on, but now it's time to get serious again and loose those last 25 (plus 3).
The other day Kathy and I were discussing how much we love our fatbaby boots and how much we liked this black and white version. Somehow the topic of weight loss incentive crept into the conversation. Both of us wanting to take off 25 pounds decided that these boots would be the perfect half way reward. So as of today, I am back on track and looking forward to a new pair of dress boots!
