:lol:
You look SO good! & your body is so well proportioned, you should be proud of yourself for coming so far. :D



And thank you! I'm really pushing myself these last few months. :)



I'm a coffee person too. :oops: I've been alternating my morning smoothies with a iced coffee smoothie I've been making with this protein shake stuff. It's not nearly as good as the real thing, but it helps curb the urge to go and spend $6 on an amazingly delicious coffee across from my work. :lol:

So I've lost quite a bit! At my highest, when I had my son, I was at like, 220 I think? I got down to 180 without really trying (which is what I was before I got pregnant. I gravitate towards that point). Then I've been workign really had to get to 157 where I am now.

Im feeling pretty sore and tired today. I worked out 2 times yesterday on the elliptical and also watched my calories. Oh what I would do for a $6 coffee right now lol. I am gonna walk on the elliptical for 30 min this morning hopefully if I can get my butt up and going.

I always feel better after working out! I wish I was more confident, because I'd love to run outside. I'll run on the treadmill, but I really really love a nice walk/run outside, in the fresh air.

Just got done with my morning workout. Really kinda kicked my butt. I think its gonna take some time to work up to a longer time like I originally wanted to start out as. Ill do another workout tonight. I havent been able to weigh myself in months because the battery in our scale needs replaced. I am headed to the DR today so I guess ill know then what I weigh. I am not looking forward to knowing :cry: But at least then Ill know what I am working with I guess. Do any of you ladies use my fitness pal?

I've never tried that one, I use fatsecret currently to track my intake for the day and my weight.

That's what I'm considering, but I'm sure in the heat of the moment, I'll kinda forget. :oops: :lol:



It's so bad too, but conceiving in July/August would just be best for us, so I know I should really wait until then.. butttttttttttt... :lol:

Thanks. It's for sure my bad habit. I've done good cutting out most candy, and we almost never buy soda anymore. But coffee? I love my coffee, and I need a few cups throughout the day.
