Finally stepping up and doing it!

I am so excited.  I’m finally taking control and doing this!

My husband and I embarked on a new lifestyle a week ago and so far we are both super excited about how we feel in control and the results have been amazing!

We we both lost about 5 pounds in the week and we worked out, only had alcoholic drinks on Saturday and overall felt in control for the first time in years!  We cannot wait to see what the next week brings.  We decided this new approach should be for the rest of our lives.  We aren’t getting any younger, after all.  Losing the weight we both desire will be such an awesome feeling.  I think we should be at our goal weights in approximately 4-6 weeks, depending on what we each settle on as our ideal weights.  We are both 5’8″.  I remember when I was in my mid 20’s and hired a trainer and dietician.  I got down to 140 and I was in incredible shape!  I would love to be there again.  Is 140 a good goal for me?  I started last week at 172 and today I was 166.  Hubby started at 190 and was 185 today.  He says his goal is 160.  I’m torn on what mine should be.  I will be so excited just to be 155 that I can’t even fathom 140 right now!

The workouts we’ve been doing along with the food plan has really been good.  We can feel the fat burning off.  I feel like maybe for the first time in years we will both be beach ready in time for summer… The beginning of June.  That will be an amazing feeling… To feel confident in a swimsuit!

I just turned 50 and am ready to make 2020 the year of major change for myself and my family! I am a realtor, an artist and a fitness lover. I am ready to tackle some of those difficult things in life that seem to get put off and put off and see where this new road of focus and intention takes me.
