I have lost about five more pounds since the holiday season. My jeans were getting a BIT tight, but they are starting to loosen up now. The picture on the left is from December 2012 and picture on right is from April 2014. I am officially down 42 pounds. I still want to lose about 10-15 pounds, but going to just take it slow and continue to eat healthy and exercise. I have done this lifestyle change completely slow and that is exactly how I wanted it to be. I didn't want a "quick fix," because you never learn anything from that. You need to learn to incorporate good foods into your diet and learn how to live. I still enjoy my wine and I refuse to give up wine, cheese, chicken and waffles, and pizza. It's LIFE.... You don't have to eat fish and green beans every night to lose weight... You just don't have to... I have also accepted that I will NEVER be smaller than a 6/8... And honestly,  I don't want to. I am 5'11.... This has been such a learning experience for me and I am just so thankful I started it at an early age.. If you ever need any suggestions or tips on how to cook or what workouts I do, feel free to email me! I would love to help!

We are the same size! I've been down to a 4 before and everyone told me how sickly and anorexic I looked. 6/8 is perfect for me and I'm 6 feet tall. :-) And I eat cheese, pizza, steak and all the "bad foods" in moderation.

Love this post! I'm 6 weeks in on a lifestyle change- not trying for quick, I want it to be slow and sustainable.
