Eighty Pounds Gone!!

15 May

80

So I never actually have said this publicly, but I lost almost 80 pounds since having my daughter.  Definitely not an easy journey for sure, but one that God and I took together. 🙂

Lots of people will want to know how I did it, and it’s simple to say, yet hard to do. 🙂  It was a lot of Zumba, working out at the YMCA, and eating at home.  (Oh, and also going easy on the carbs!lol…)

But the thing that I realized this time around was that eating at home was probably the leading factor in my weight loss.  Once I cut out the greasy fast foods and started making my own foods, I was still eating yummy foods, they were just healthy and home-made.

Even when I couldn’t work out, I was still losing weight just because of my healthy food choices. (I wasn’t hungry either!) 🙂

Over time, I lost not only all of my weight from my daughter, but surpassed my pre-baby weight, and now I have a whole new wardrobe: my jeans and tops from high school!

While I’m excited for myself, I want everyone to be healthy…not skinny, but healthy. 🙂  And I believe God wants us to be healthy and strong to do His work more effectively.

This is why I’ve partnered with Chef Deena to teach women how to cook amazing meals at home. 🙂

I would love to get you signed up for our affordable cooking class.  We start this Saturday at 6 p.m., and we’ll be sampling and learning how to cook amazing and healthy home-made meals, and then relaxing in the pool and jacuzzi.  I hope to see you there! 🙂

Blessings!
