    Last year at this time I lost 10 lbs

    while I was going through depression and got sick a lot and in turn threw up often. I've gained it back, but I wish I could go back to that in a healthy way

    and "during" pictures. Like I've posted before I'm working very hard to lose weight and tone my body. Eating right & exercising is key! The 2nd picture was taken about 2 weeks ago so I'm excited to take an even more updated one and see how I've progressed since then.

    I'm back on the wagon,

    all the way! Keeping to my 21 Day Fix meal plan and working out daily. I'm not sure what I want the scale to say since I'm lifting weights still, but I definitely need those extra three inches off my waist that I collected in the last few months! :-/

    I was so proud of myself today.

    I have lost 35 pounds and today was the first time I actually felt good looking in the mirror. Then the person who I considered my best friend looked at me and said "well you still weigh way too much for someone your height" and there went my happiness :(
