Hi everyone! Gosh, I know it's been a long time since I posted here. I just wanted to come by and give an update on me. Life has been so busy for me over the past year. I graduated nursing school in August and yesterday I took my state board exam for my nursing license and am anxiously awaiting the results from that! I feel good about it though. I graduated as valedictorian of my class with an "A" average. I was so proud!!
My girls are doing great...growing so fast and keeping me busy as well! Life is pretty sweet right now.
I have continued to work on my weight loss and am happy to report that I have been able to keep the weight off and lose even more since I posted here last. I can't remember how much I was weighing in at when I posted here last, but as of right now I am only 8 lbs away from my goal weight!! It feels amazing and I've never felt better about myself!!
My total weight loss since March 2008 is 67 lbs. WOO HOO!

I thought I would update with some new before/after pics since it's been a while.
So here they are!!

Before weight - 225 lbs
After weight - 158 lbs











I look at the before pictures and can't believe I was that big...I just did not realize.
The transformation has been really amazing...I mean, it has done wonders for my self-esteeem and just the way I feel in general.

Anyway, I wanted to share my pics. I know how much it inspired me and helped me to see others before/after pics when I was just starting out so I hope that these pics will inspire someone else as well.
