Monthly Weight Loss and Pictures

Hey, beautiful people!
I hope you all had a great weekend. I sure did. I'm just loving fall! :)
My mother-in-law, Sandy, is here visiting and Brad and I have been having a nice time with her, as always.
Tomorrow is Brad's 35th birthday. Instead of making a cake for his birthday, I made him Dutch Apple Pie completely from scratch. I've never made a pie before and have always wanted to. So, since Sandy was here and she makes pies a lot, I had her talk me through it and I did everything myself (besides peeling and slicing the apples, to save time). I took a picture of the pie before I baked it and after ... the after is missing a piece because Brad couldn't wait to tear into it. Lol. It came out really well, if I do say so myself. :-P You can see some pictures we took here.
I weighed-in this morning at 170.8, which means I lost 3.8 lbs this month for a total of 126.2 lbs lost so far. I never made it into the 160s like I wanted to but I'm still very happy with that number, considering that I now am only getting to the gym three days a week, compared to six in previous months, due to my new job (which is going great, BTW) and that I'm getting smaller. My monthly weight-loss goal has always been at least five lbs a month and I'm still definitely shooting for that but I'm completely fine with losing three to five lbs now.
Here are my pictures for the month:

Fall blessings, 


  1. You are so cute! That outfit looks really good on you too. You should be soooo proud of yourself! You've lost a whole person! Please rephrase that (in your head) to say "I HAVEN'T made it into the 160s YET like I wanted...," instead of saying never. I always have to watch myself because I used to use the word "if" a lot, and now I say "when" instead. Sounds so much better. Congratulations! :-)

  2. Just found your blog and you are beautiful!!!! You should be soooo proud of your weight loss! How awesome!!! You inspire me!!!!
