TIOM | My family? Is awesome.

Medifast | Week 24
Wow. Have I really been writing these posts for 24 weeks? That's insane. I literally feel like I just started yesterday. Okay, I'm off track already.

So, anyway...

You guys? I'm really proud of myself! Transition and maintenance are going really well for me. By mid- birthday -week I was up a pound, but I ended up losing that again with really no problem at all. I'm very confident in my ability to maintain my weight, my problem has always been losing it. But thank you Medifast for helping me with that! =)

So, you may remember my Steppin Out post from, um, yesterday...
...in which I mention that I may or may not have on Joe's Jeans. Well, it all comes down to this...

My family? Is awesome.

I'm sure you guys knew that before. I mean, sheesh, I say it all the time. But really? They are much more than that. They are loving, and thoughtful, and supportive, and amazing, and I love them so damn much.

And not just because they buy me nice birthday presents. {Though it helps. I ked. I ked.}

For my birthday? My mom and Bob got me this... {ahem, my -30lb weight loss reward}
That's my Coach purse, folks. And yes... they made me wait for my birthday to open it! Obviously I knew I was getting it since I got that fateful coupon the day after I lost 30lbs and then marched my {ahem, skinny} ass right to the Coach store to purchase it. But Bob told me from the start that it was part of my birthday present and that I had to wait for it. I was cool with that.

It was definitely worth the wait.

So what I did not know, was that my 2 wonderful sisters were scheming to buy me these...
My Joe's Jeans!!! The one's I've been saving for since May and then spending the money on things like kids party favors and, um, bills. Yes, them. I was so shocked when I pulled them out of the gift bag on the night of my birthday. I actually think I cried... they were that beautiful. I can't believe my sisters got them for me! They are so amazing. {My sisters, not the jeans. Well? Both.}

So I want a send a HUGE thank you to my family for being so supportive of me on this diet and for helping me get my rewards. I love you guys so much! You mean the world to me. MUAH!

love these pics :) you are too sassy ;)

Jen said...

Congrats to you on your weight loss and happy belated birthday! My suggestion for exercise as far as toning up goes is Tracy Anderson Method Mat workout DVD. I LOVE her and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her workouts! I've been able to tone my arms, legs, butt, stomach (even after 2 babies!), etc. You can find her dvd on amazon a little more $$$ but totally worth it IMO. Good luck to you!

Katie said...

Damn girl you look AWESOME! Seriously. Jealous! :) Way to go.

You look great girlfriend! I say you give Zumba a try! Its my favorite workout. It doesn't even feel like you are exercising; just an hour of fun dancing :-) Let us know what you decide! My Zumba session starts back up in September!

ashley said...

You look shamazing, doll. Seriously, great job!

And the jeans? Color me jealous.

Emily said...

Great job and you're looking great! As for the workout, I love Jillian. I did the 30-day shred when I was trying to lose weight for my wedding and it did wonders. But, obviously you know how amazing she is ;-)
