well i have been in the 8 week battle #3.my goal was to lose 16 lbs.im happy to say i have totally past that up! when i started this battle i weighed 294 lbs.im very proud to report that i weigh 269 lbs.the only reason i can post these pics is b/c im not the same person anymore.not only on the outside,but inside as well.
i have been on this journey with some amazing women.who i will continue to stay close with.we all have been pushing..encouraging..working out,we all have had our highs,and our lows for these past 8 weeks,its sad to see it come to an end.but i am happy to start #4!!
i did something just the other night,that i have never done b4 in my life.my hubby was home,we went out to eat 2 nights in a row. i am happy to report that the first night was at a mexican restaurant ,i ate a grilled chicken salad.which was amazing!!
second night was at a ponderosa steak house!! i was very pi**ed about this..but my dh had the waitress ask the cook to make me a piece of grilled chicken,so i had that with a salad..also so much veggies! i have never filled up on steamed carrots,broccoli,bell peppers in my life.it was so yummy.
if my dh hadnt asked for the cook to make me that..well he would have been in the dog house! i told him..this is hard,how am i suppose to go up to the buffet,and pass up fried chicken,potatoes,pizza!! i said point blank,if i dont have ur support im not gonna make it.
well that was the end of that.lol..he was kissing my a** ..lmfao!
it ended good,and at the end of the night he apologized for wanting that buffet.he said,"u dont need to change,i think u r beautiful."then i said,"but i dont..and i want to."
so i am very proud of myself,and thats hard for me to say sometimes.i dont always like whos staring back at me when i look in the mirror..but im starting to.
lots of luvv to the 8week battle#3..RED TEAM WE ROCKED THIS BATTLE!
god bless spark family,christina
