In a better place...

Monday, May 07, 2012

So my boyfriend and I broke up after 8 years and he moved out about a month ago. I've had my ups and downs but am starting to feel a lot better about it all. It's been really difficult to "share" our son though. We are both working full time and are going to school at night. I have gained a LOT of weight and am determined to lose it. I've stocked my fridge with good food and am going back to my old habits of packaging and freezing foods in serving sizes, planning my meals, staying away from carbs, eating in moderation, and working out everyday. I do not doubt that I will reach my goals this year. My birthday is in December and I turn 30 so I want to be at my best! A breakup has been good motivation for me in the past so I'm hoping to use it to my advantage this time around. Check out these pics which show me last summer and now wearing the same outfit!! I was shocked to see the changes but it is just what I needed to get moving and motivated again:

    Almost looks like different people. Nothing like a change in life to make us want to change ourselves....God bless, Dee
