weight loss goal!
this week i finally hit my prebaby weight! i'm officially the weight i was when i became pregnant with #4, which means a loss of over 45lbs in the last year. (i gained 70lbs with the pregnancy!) one of the ways i did this was to cut out fast food. i realized several months ago that i had to either give up my coffee drinks or fast food. no wavering there, i can't give up the coffee! so i've worked hard to not eat it, even when i get it for the kids. tonight on the way home from church i decided to run through taco bell (hence the pic of me with my enchirito:) so here's the funny thing, it didn't taste good at all. taco bell is what i always crave when i'm pregnant but after all these months of staying away from fast food, i'm realizing its really not very good. i had gotten in the really bad habit of eating it several times a week out of busyness and convenience. heart disease is rampant in my family so i knew i had to stop, not only for my weight loss goals but for my health. now that i've gone so long trying not to eat it, it doesn't appeal to me anymore. now if i could say the same for chocolate and sour cream and cheddar potato chips i'd be set! my next goal is to loose ten more pounds which would put me at the weight i was when i got pregnant with baby #2 (i was 24 then). we'll see!
