Half way there!

So, I started this journey in February of this year. It was much needed and about time! It is hard to explain how I let myself get to this point but it happened while having a really good time. :) I have never even attempted to lose the amount of weight that I have to lose. Every single day is hard but I am determined to do it this time. I was recently inspired again by my friend Jen who just posted her before and afters. She has already reached her goal which gives me hope! The picture below was this last Christmas and the picture below that was in February right before I started my diet.



I still have a ways to go but I have lost 45 pounds and still working hard. I don't have a goal date but I just want to get healthy before I have a family. Everyone is asking how I am doing it so my big secret is 1,000 calories a day and I work out at least 3 times a week. My secret weapon is Lean Cuisines for lunch which leave enough calories for a decent dinner and occasionally I get a desert! :) Thanks to everyone who has been supporting me! I need you!


  1. Candice way to go! You are looking FANTASTIC! You are so super adorable and I know you can make it to your goal. It's great to have something that you're working towards with the intent of doing it partially for your family. It's a great motivation :)

  2. Appalause ,applause , applause. You look great! I am trying to lose 15 and I can't stay on it long enough to do that. I am going to have to call you and get meal ideas from you. At 41 now I have realized that I need to change my eating habits and that is the hard part. Maybe with your example I can do it too. Maybe you noticed on my blog that I am running now. It feels great and hopefully it will help me also. Keep up the good work - you can do it!
