Weigh in!

Well we didn't post our weigh in last week but in the past 2 weeks I have lost another...

3 Pounds!!

J has lost another 5.5 pounds!!!

So I am down almost 13 pounds

Jeremiah is down almost 17 pounds!!

HOW EXCITING! It is a slower process then I originally thought but worth it thinking by the end of the summer we could be at our goal weight as long as we stick to it!! :)

The eating is becoming so much easier (sometimes we cheat more often than we planned on- little snacks here and there)

We boosted up our work out with weights and cardio and today we did our workout class tonight and we OWNED that class! We didn't have to stop at all really ( and it was a new lady filling in and she was TOUGH)- 10 minutes of straight cardio and then 5 minutes of weights- no stopping.

I feel incredible, I have so much more energy and a great confidence about myself. I usually start something like this and don't make it longer than a week or so, but with Jeremiah pushing me, encouraging me and seeing results in himself, we are unstoppable!

Tonight is whole wheat chicken enchiladas for dinner- the recipe is great if you want (kind of a cheat night for us but we LOVE them and love that we don't waste calories anymore, we don't live to eat, we eat to live and it has changed our marriage and our friendship).

Thanks to everyone supporting us and those of you who have jumped on the band wagon and doing it along with us- GOOD LUCK!! YOU CAN DO IT!!

I think I would do much better with a trainer, but not sure I could handle the extra expense. I think it's good that you guys are doing it together so when one doesn't feel like going the other one drags them there.

haha i realized that I wrote the work out was 10 minute of cardio and 5 minutes of weights no stopping- that is repeated for 45 minutes (haha not a 15 minute work out- not that easy haha)

I just pictured some of you going "wow a 15 minute work out- sign me up!" haha
