by Mara @ What's For Dinner? on May 9, 2014

My day to day routine has gotten very… Routine. Now that I’m eating food all the time now, I have to spend a bit more time planning out my week, and make sure I get to the grocery store every weekend to ensure that my eating is “mindless” during the week.

The mindless thing has been hard for me. Eating was always an event before. Now it’s just something I do so I don’t get crabby. It’s working too!


-80.9 pounds since September!


That’s more than my dog weighs. That’s more than many of my 6th graders weigh. I’m down 10 dress sizes and 8 pants sizes. I’m down 11 inches in my bra band. I wore a freaking strapless dress to my friends’ wedding!


The biggest difference i can finally see is in my confidence. I put myself “out there” more, and am doing things that scare me (like going to the dentist, riding an alpine slide in a few weeks, and joining a boxing gym).

I finished grad school and will have my M.Ed. In Educational Technology as of 3 pm on Saturday, May 10!

It’s been a heck of a year…
