I am down 13 pounds altogether, and John is down 25.
When I made it to my first goal (5% of body weight lost) I rewarded myself with a haircut. It was my first since Sophia came and my "mom" cut. I was excited to get it. I had short hair when John first met me and he actually prefers it this way. And I prefer a change! :)
I've had several people over the years classify my hair as "thin". But my stylist says I actually have a lot of hair, it's just very very straight. Except for this one patch in the back near the nape of my neck, where my hair is borderline curly. I think this has only happened since being pregnant. Crazy hormones.
Also on a day I was feeling "skinny" I decided to take a body shot. I resisted the urge to suck it in :)
If this is the way I looked sitting down I'd be thrilled. Unfortunately when it's not all stretched out I have significant gut :( But still, I am happy with the progress.

|Sausage, carrot and white bean stew|
|Tuscan chicken with herb roasted potatoes|
|Cabbage and sausage soup (surprisingly good!)|
|Ham and Swiss quiche|
|Spinach Alfredo over spaghetti squash|
So if you're thinking you'd like to lose a few pounds, but don't want a drastic lifestyle change, and want to feed your family the same food you need, this is the plan!
I'll update you again once I reach my next goal!
