Biggest Losers

 Ben has lost 34 pounds since March-- how awesome is that??? I have lost 28 since I had Minnie and really want to take off these last 6 before her birthday-- an arbitrary deadline, to be sure. The very weirdest thing is that I really don't miss eating like a crazy giant.

These pics were taken a year apart:

A few things that have helped me besides having Ben also eating healthy:

1. No alcohol: I don't miss it, and it's easier to make good food choices without it.

2. Chocolate chips: I eat them by the tablespoon, and they are the best sweet treat

3. A bedtime snack: It is so much easier for me to eat reasonable dinners when I know I have a small snack (usually a packet of lower sugar oatmeal with 1tsp of peanut butter and a few raisins) to look forward to after my shower.

4. Drinking a gallon of water every day: who can be hungry with that much water?!

5: TONS of exercise: my walk is Minnie's nap, so I can't miss it, and I love listening to audiobooks while we stroll. My Apple watch has been great to track exercise and motivate me to keep going, too.

What about you? Healthy habits to share?
