32.5 LBS!!!

In 65 Days! I am so happy to finally be losing this weight! I mean really, my oldest son is only 11 and that's where it all began! LOL! and the younger is 6 in just a few days and that one didn't help either;) So finally after 12 years of this heaviness I am finally doing something about it and I couldn't be happier. I am over 1/2 way to my goal and it feels so great! I feel so much better than I have in years. I am eating better and teaching my children how to eat better and loving every minute of it. My DH just left for the Police Academy for 9 weeks and my goal is to reach my goal by the time he graduates and I just know I can do it! I have 8 weeks left to lose 30 LBS and would LOVE to make it 40;) But I would be thrilled with 30! LOL! I KNOW I'll make it and with the comtinued support of my friends and family I'll love every minut of it! SO today, I'll leave you with a picture of ......... ME! Not a full body shot NO WAY but a headshot and trust me you can see the difference already so this is before....

This is after 17 LBS......

And this is today........ After 32.5 LBS!!!

TFL and CC is always Welcome and much appreciated!

1st Place and Honorable Mention.... Not bad

Not bad at all:) LOL! My friend Deb and I participated in a local Camera Club Competition and we did pretty well. I won 1st place for this image

and Honorable mention for this one

The really exciting part though was having my image critiqued by Mark Staff. For those of you who don't know who that is you can find him here... he really rocks and to think all this time he's lived right in the area and I never knew. His work is incredible! So anyway, enough about that and on with the news of our wins:) Deb won 1st place for one of her images as well and if I had it I would show it to ya but I don't so maybe she'll blog about it herself? LOL! So just thought I'd share my joy from the evening:)

As a side note I have lost 30 LBS so far on my diet and I am beginning the 2nd phase which is very exciting to me:) I can't wait to lose all the weight!
