From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. NTC Business Books, Thanks again and Congrats: What a great, inspiring post! I have cut out fast food for the past three months yay! That alone has helped, I think!
I may have to try getting pre-made foods to try to help. We also eat a llot of fresh raw fruits and veg, and steamed when possible. First I want to say Congratulations!! I thought you looked just fine before, but now you look like an even better version of yourself! Second, this is my first post on your site and I really wanted to say thank you for posting how you have lost the weight.
So thank you again for generously sharing your success story, and you deserve to brag about it!! Congrats to you and your hubby! Choosing water over chemical-laden diet sodas was one of the best things you did. Just remember to not rely on prepackaged food as you trek on! Lots of processed ingredients. Sorry, the nurse in me took over my post!!
Best wishes on maintaining your health! Thanks for the inspiration!!! I have your original problem. I exercise at the gym then go to water aerobics. I feel better after exercising but no change in weight. Your method is worth a try. I will send you results. Congratulations on your success. You look and feel great. I wish you would post some new recipes that helped you lose the weight! Ones that include amount of calories? It would be very helpful.
Congrats on your weight loss!! I know the feeling that comes with seeing results on the scale. I have gained alot of my weight back simply bc of no motivation. I think this blog was just what I needed! And keep up the great work!!! Congrats and thanks for sharing your story! You both look great! Congrats on your hard work and results. Thank you for posting this!! I also gave up everything to drink except water… i lost about 70 pounds in 2 months doing the exact same thing you did.
Your post gave me the push I needed!! I have to get this weight off, I have to. All along I knew what to do, and happy to see someone else had the same results…….. I am so impressed with people who have the dedication to make it work, Thanks for sharing your story. PS I still think you looked good before! This is a fabulous post Amanda. I have really enjoyed reading it. Not at all preachy like some weightloss stories can be: I am feeling inspired to make some changes — I have 10 years of happily married, 2 kids and love to eat my own cooking weight to shift LOL.
I love the Vita Craves too — but at Wal-Mart they have generic ones that are much cheaper and taste even yummier so just in case you want to try those out…I think that they taste better than regular gummi bears! Hey You look great! I noticed, esp in the last post with your family pics that both you and Kevin were looking thinner! The good and bad of publishing self pics!
I think your exercise played a role too. I exercise in spurts so my weight and size fluctuates throughout the year. Like others have said, that sugar is my downfall. I need to find some fun, active things to do to keep ME motivated.
Reading your post has inspired me. I just think that a lot of women see things like this and wish they could be a size 4 or 2 or whatever. I know how hard the diet thing is. I had gastric bypass 21 months ago and have lost a total of 80 lbs. I feel so good!!! Great job and keep up the good work!!! I have 2 boys that I cook for and too felt guilty not being able to keeping cooking which I love. Can you post that sight you talked about where you enter your recipe to get the right portion I could truly use this so cool!!
I even decided to get a treadmill for myself, i am truly determined to lose the weight and be healthier in the next couple of months. Thank you for the wonderful information and insight on all the delicious thing out there to eat especially deserts which I love! I definitly have put on the newlywed pounds and need to loose, this is definitly a motivation!!!
I recently had to lose weight for health reasons and I am on my last 10 pounds! I lost 35 so far! I know how great it feels to lose weight and how good you feel about yourself! You inspire me to continue!! Hopefully Corey and I can do the same this year. We followed the same type program a few years ago, but after his accident we put all of our weight back on. But are trying to get back there again. You just inspired me! My mom and I have been trying desperately to lose weight.
We did the gym thing for a year and we were watching what we ate…and we started losing weight but it was getting expensive. I have been on a rollercoaster this paste couple months trying to figure out how to lose weight. I am going to use your little secrets thank you soooooo much and see what happens. I am forwarding this on to my mom so she can read your blog too.
That is really awesome. I have just started working out that part I can manage , but it is the eating that gets me! I like how you gave ideas on how to keep track of calories.
My question is how did you come up with the calories a day? Is that the recommended amount for your age? Measuring portions is a real eye opener and changing to drinking water is a big plus, and activity weather walking or the gym are very beneficial!
I so enjoy you thoughtful emails and look so forward to getting them from you……You have inspired me…. Hugs to you Jill.
Thanks so much for posting this blog! I have always been underweight, but this last year things have started to stick. Anyways I was really encouraged by your blog and am excited to start getting healthy myself! Amanda, you look wonderful.. I have about 50 lbs to lose.. My husband could stand to lose at least 20 lb…I know I can do it..
I used to be able to keep weight off and lose 10 pounds at the drop of the hat. That was before I had babies and turned 40! My husband really needs to lose weight and I have almost given up ever losing any weight and keeping it off again.
Anyway, thank you for doing this. I did the exercise and not lose any weight thing, too. Today I started drinking water intentionally. I determined that was all I would drink.
Then I come here and see you did that, too. Amanda- that is absolutely fantastic and totally inspiring! You look amazing and you and Kevin both should be proud! The transformation is amazing. Thank you for taking the time to share your story.
You and your husband supporting each other is awesome and if you decide to have kids down the road, you can help them to learn healthy eating habits. I already wondered how you have time to do all that you do! Your email address will not be published. Follow Me on Instagram! Previous Post Can I share some pics of my roses?
