What a Difference a Year Makes

Back during the first week of November I received some very disturbing news regarding blood work that I had done at school. My triglycerides were dangerously high and I needed to change my diet immediately. It scared me very badly. I am way too young to be dealing with such an issue.... So, I made up my mind that day that I was going to do everything in my power to do better with my eating and exercise.

All I can say is what a difference a year can make... I was looking through pics from last Christmas today and I came across this one of me last year at the family gathering. WOW is all I could say. I really had no idea I had gained that much weight.... Check out the pics below.

Christmas 2008-225lbs.

Christmas 2009-192lbs.

As of today I have officially lost 30lbs since the first week of November just by watching what I am eating and being strict with it... The lunch ladies at my school and lots of good friends that I work with have cheered me all along the way, and I am so grateful for their help. This blog is in no way meant to be braggy at all...Honestly I am still in shock that all I had to do was eat better and the weight just came off....... some of my friends think I am getting a bit obsessed... but we will see how they act when they are in danger of a stroke.....

So... There is my story lately.... I have been working hard, and I am gonna do everything I can to maintain it.... Pray for me through Christmas.... I love Little Debbie Christmas Tree cakes and haven't had a one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WANT ONE SO SO BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
