1. Drink more water.
No Atkins, no Weight Watchers. We are using the free Spark People website to track our nutritional goals (calories, carbs, fat, protein), so that's really taking a lot of guess work out of it. I've set a goal of 25 pounds lost by the 4th of July, but really, I just want to feel better about myself. I want to be able to run with the kids, and set a good example for them. I want to make beautiful (skinny) clothes and fit in my old favorites still in my closet. I want to be able to run (and like it) and bike for miles with my family and friends.
So, I will take Wednesday of each week to update you on our weight-loss journey. I know it has nothing to do with sewing, but... too bad. If you don't care, don't read it. But I know that I've got the perfect fabric for a Cynthia Rowley dress, and if I can make it a size smaller now than I would've a month ago, that's a really cool thing happening in my sewing space! And DH is taking me out to show it off when it's done, so that's an even cooler thing!
