I started a major diet May 28, 2008. I knew I had to do something, after having twins in May of 2006 I had really gained ALOT of weight and was the biggest I had ever been. My blood pressure and cholesterol became issues and I just never felt good. My lower back hurt all the time and I never had energy. So I decided for myself first and then for my kids that I wanted to be healthy and be around long enough to meet my grandkids and even some great grandkids. I made a doctors appointment immediatly and almost 4 months later I know I have lost over 50 pounds, I haven't weighed all month so we will find out if I have lost anymore when I go back to the doctor on Sept. 29. I made cholesterol and blood pressure are back to normal, my back doesn't hurt anymore like it did, and I have so much more energy that I have ever had. I just feel good now. Every morning me and my hubby get up at 455 and get our 3 miles out of the way and then through the day I get my 500+ crunches, 50 leg lifts, 50 arm pulls, and 50 toe raises done. I try not to eat anything after about 5 in the evening. If I'm going to make dinner I have it ready for my husband to eat as soon as he gets home at about 430 and then all we have to do the rest of the night is get Klayton's homework, take him to football practice, get all the kids fed, and then hopefully by 9 everynight Klayton is tucked away in his bed and me, my hubby, Karson, and Karlea are tucked away in our bed. That way we all get a good night sleep and are ready to get up bright and early and start all over again. I have one day a week I cheat, I eat whatever I want and I don't do any excersizing, usually I will cheat on Saturday or Sunday, I pick whichever that day fits our schedule best that week. I also drink wine 2 times a week. I love on those 2 days getting everything done, Klayton in bed, Karson and hubby in bed, and then usually Karlea will stay downstairs with me and I catch up on all the shows that I have missed through the week on my dvr and drink some wine. All of that being said I think I am going to start keeping a daily log on here of exactly what I eat and drink all day long so maybe that will help me stay on track better and be able to see and know exactly what I eat and how much on a daily basis. Do any of you have any weight loss tips that have worked for yall?? Any good healthy recipies that kept you on track because they tasted like they weren't healthy but they really were?? Let me know, I'm always looking for new tips and new recipies.
Hi, I'm Kelly. I'm a daughter, twin sister, sister, cousin, granddaughter, niece, friend, and most importantly a wife, and mother to Klayton, Karlea, and Karson! I married Ben in 2005 and he is the best daddy in the world to our 3 kids. Klayton is my oldest and one of the smartest people I know. He is 9 and in the third grade. He is full of energy and is happy as long as he is playing any sport outside, playing sony 3, and eating his favorite foods. His football team won the City Championship this year and he was selected to the All Star Team, soooo PROUD of my Kman. Then I have twins that are 3, Karson (boy) and Karlea (girl) that make our family complete and keeps me very busy.. Karson is a little firecracker that is always into everything and anything. He most def. keeps me on top of things! Karlea is also a little firecracker in her own way but also is a BIG mommy's girl. She is mommy's payback! As sweet as she is she has her moments as well! She has learned to take up for herself having 2 brothers that seem to always be picking on her. I have always stayed at home with my kids and wouldn't have it any other way!
