Its so pretty and new!!!

So if you haven't noticed I pretty much have a brand new blog! I am loving it so much!

 I have been thinking about having someone do a design for my blog for some time now but pretty much every person I found wanted an arm and a leg to do it. Then a few days ago I was on one of my favorite blogs, the young retiree (just love her blog!) and I saw that she had a new design and I loved hers so I went searching for who had designed it and found Jane at Jane Whitney Designs. Jane is a military spouse also and she does amazing work! 

 I have to tell you Jane was and is AMAZING! She took all my thoughts and ideas and created something so cute and amazing and TOTALLY me and my style. It was just so great working with her.

 So if you have your own blog and need someone to do anything for you, you NEED to go talk to Jane.

I know there is a skinny me in there

So last new years I told myself and husband that I was going to drop 20 pounds or more because I was overweight and not happy at all with the way I looked. 

Me on Halloween 2011. I was about 190 pounds.
So the start of 2012 I was ready to go! I stopped eating crappy foods aka processed foods and started cooking pretty much everything from scratch and cut down on anything that was made with white floor. I even went to a cooking class and learned the things that my body can't digest very well.

So by the end of 2012 I had dropped 18 pounds and weighted 172 pounds!

December 2012. 172 pounds! feeling good!!!

So all in all 2012 was a great year for me.

However 2013 is starting to look bad. I am so upset with myself cause I was doing great and I currently am 178 pounds. However I am reminding myself that I lost almost 20 pounds ONLY by eating. So starting in April I am going to start working out AND eating clean. I am hoping that by July when its hotter then hot in Virginia I will be able to wear a 2 piece swimsuit which I have not done since I was in High School.
