Before and After

Well it has been a while since my last post!! I decided today that I would finally put two photos together and see my before and after. I have been putting it off for a while now wanting to push myself and lose that last few pounds. However, having come this far, I am now offically a size 4, 135lbs and feel effing fantastic. Better than I have ever felt. My energy is through the roof, I look forward to exercising, cooking, eating and shopping for clothes is a TREAT instead of torture.

Having gone through the Simply for Life program I am now, 100% off processed foods and eat more veg and fruit than ever. I know my portion sizes off by heart and never skip breakfast. All of this adds up to a sustainable healthy lifestyle. My treats are the complete opposite than they would have been before. (See Cauliflower Crust Pizza below) YES, THAT CRUST IS ALL CAULIFLOWER!

Last year that would have been 4 slices of Pizza Hut. This post sounds very braggy but I am honestly happy and proud of myself for changing my relationship with food permanently. Simply for Life, Micheal Pollan, Kath Eats and Mark Bittman have changed the way I think about my fuel and I love them all for it.

So without further ado, here is my before:
158lbs January 2010.
and After
135lbs May 2010

Horray for Health!
