and the winner is....

He is...

Chris had his final weigh in today and he lost.....37.4 pounds in 2 months!!!! SO amazing!!! I am so proud of him. He looks so awesome and weighs less than he did when we met! He won the pot of money which was super fun. I'm sure you're wondering what he is planning on doing with the cash. He put $25 bucks in his wallet, put $100 bucks in Kate's bank account and gave me a little over $400. I decided to keep a few bucks for the wallet and put the rest in the bank for something fun for us a family. Not sure what it will be yet. He is amazing in every way. So humble and so giving. He makes me want to be a better person daily.

It's nice to have the "losing" mentality over and work on maintaining. Now it's time to focus on toning and building muscle mass.

I am down a total of 15 pounds in 2 months. I'm feeling great. The best part is I am back in all of my pre-baby clothes which includes my awesome stack of jeans. Can't tell you how good it feels. There was a couple times I thought about giving them away because I didn't think my booty would ever fit back in them, let alone get them over my hips again. I am now back in all of them and have extra room to spare. I am still working on the losing part. The weight I am now is the weight I was when we got back from our honeymoon. Yes, I gained 7 pounds in 10 days at our all-inclusive resort. If I could get back to my wedding weight (7-10 more pounds) then I would be thrilled but not sure how that is going to work. I guess I need to stay focused.

We are so thankful for this lifestyle change. It came at the perfect time.
If WE can do this....anyone can! Set your mind to it! I would be more than happy to tell you the foods we ate, the foods we stayed away from and the exercises we are doing if you need some encouragement. Depending on the response, I might do a blog about it...
Chris is very proud to be a loser tonight. He lost a ton but gained so much out of this experience!
