Woo - freakin - Hoo!

I lost 9.5 lbs in the last 4 weeks! I really wanted 10, but I will take that. I have been working out hard and really just living a healthy lifestyle. It is good to be back to my ole' self. When I was preggo with the twins, I just couldn't eat certain things... like salad. I love salad; however the boys didn't. And subway. I enjoy subway so much; however when I was preggo... the tv commercials literally made me sick. So weird!

I made a call today to a local women's shelter and asked if they would want my used books. They were thrilled that I would give them the books. I love to read; however I am very selective on which books I keep. Some are good one time reads- others are worth more. lol So when I get the chance I am going to go through the books I have read and donate the good ones.

As I mentioned a couple months ago, I don't believe I am going to do the 'Free Christmas' again. I loved helping people and enjoyed the volunteers; however it is too time consuming for one person. Besides, there are tons of local charity events that I can donate time to without being overwhelmed with my own. *smiles*

Thanks you guys!

I am sure the last paragraph seems random; however the reason I posted that is because of the books. Typically I would have kept the books out for the Free Christmas.

Shantay, that is great! How in the world did you lose all the weight you gained in just 3 months?! Congrats!

Thx Abby and Michelle. I am not quite completely baby fat free. But close! I am hoping to make some progress this month.
