One Year & 65 Pounds Ago

This last year has contained a lot of ups and a lot more "downs." Over the course of 365 days I managed to loose 65 pounds. Well, I didn't lose them so much as got rid of them, because I have no inclination to find those pounds again.

It takes a lot of hard work and dedication, a smidgen of research and more hard work. I want to reflect on what has and hasn't worked for me.

What hasn't worked:

  • Processed foods. 
  • Anything that has a shelf life. 
  • Chips, lunch meat, white breads and pastas. 
  • Anything "creamed, creamy, smothered, glazed." 
  • Pop, sugary drinks, crystal light... the list could go on and on and on.
  • Anything that includes soy or soy bi-products in the ingredient list
  • Sitting on my butt. Not moving enough. 
  • Thinking that things will just "work themselves out."

What has worked:

  • Fresh produce
  • Fresh fruit
  • Whole grains
  • Water
  • Clean eating - nothing processed, no GMO's, no GE's or anything that includes "artificial" in the ingredient list
  • Weight Lifting and Cardio

And now I've run into a new issue:

I need to find a job now so I can afford clothing that fits. LOL. Yes, my black spandex work out clothes are beginning to hang off of me. I suppose it's one of the best problems a girl can have? Not to mention that my "new" shirts are looking like circus tents on me as well. :P
