and the winner is....

my HUSBAND!
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!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…
