I started my journey on October 13, 2019 to a new and improved life for myself and my family. No more eating out 90% of the time, no more nights spent in front of the TV watching movies, no more lazy family!!! My hubby hit the scales at 280, I was 246, this was not what we had pictured for ourselves and certainly not the example we want to set for our small kids. Since then we have set out to turn it all around and the changes have been staggering. It really is amazing what you can accomplish when you are ready and willing to make the changes necessary to succeed. We now eat at home 90% of the time. Meals out are a luxury and when we do eat out it is a much smaller portion. We cook with fresh foods, no more processed boxed up fake food, and it taste amazing. We drink only water at home and gave up all soda. As of November 4 I have lost 12, almost 13 pounds. I would have loved a higher number but it will fall off over time and I am not going to let myself get discouraged with slow progress. Last week I hit a plateau but I will keep going and work through it. My husband who was beginning to have a ton of health problems is down to 260 already and he can tell a huge difference in how he feels in just 1 month. The doctor is so proud of him and his hard work so far. You can do this so don't give up, if we can do this, you can do this. My goal is 140, so I have 94 lbs to go. My husband has a goal of 190, he has 70 lbs to go.
