Ice skating in the Sculpture Garden, 2/2/08

Rob, my extremely supportive bf, and me ice skating, 2/2/08

Our first night in Nassau, down to 110.5 but went right back to 112.5. It was worth it!

I'm 5'2, 23 years old and made a huge lifestyle makeover about 3 years ago - I cut out beer, started exercising, and drastically decreased what I was eating. I definitely took it to extremes, so that when I went back to being a somewhat "normal" eater/exerciser, I noticed weight gain, especially after I graduated last May and ate and drank as much as I wanted. Now, I've been back on track with a regular fitness routine and have just recently started making wiser and healthier food decisions in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle without starvation! SP has been great at giving me new ideas and things to try, so here's hoping I'll lose those last few pounds and get more toned - but not bulky!!

My BF and I are going to the Bahamas next weekend (Feb 16-20). Wish I had found out about SP more than 2 weeks before the vaca, but I'm already starting to feel a difference in clothes, so hopefully the bikini pics won't be TOO bad.

UPDATE (2/22) - back from vacation and in desperate need to fall back into healthy eating habits!

*Black Beans
*Yellow Tomato
*Snap Peas
*Weight Watchers Amaretto Cheesecake Yogurt - 1 point!
*Broccoli (not the first time I've tried it, but now I like it!)
*Cantaloupe (not so good, kind of bland)
*Weight Watchers Lemon Pie Yogurt
*Green, Yellow, Red Peppers
