Toot Your Horn Tuesday - Less of me



My biggest news of the week is that I am about 4 pounds lighter than I was last week!! The bad news is that I believe most of that weight has come off my already small upper "portion" as opposed to my overly large lower "portion." I realize that one week isn't much of an accomplishment and that 4 pounds can shift right back into place if I don't make more of a lifestyle change. But it sure does feel like a good start!
My husband and I decided to try the South Beach diet. Didn't buy a book, just got some info off the Internet and went with it. We are eating lean meat, lots of veggies and practically no carbs or sugar. Sounds rough, but the idea is to train ourselves to resist those sugar and carb cravings.
I'm also walking most every day and doing some simple exercises. It has helped tremendously that my husband and I are being supportive of each other and not critical. We're in this together. Did you hear that we are going to Hawaii this summer?! The countdown begins today. 40 days to go. I'd be sooooo happy if I could look like this again....

Dream on!! =)
