Amanda, thank you for such a detailed description of what has made you successful! This is so do-able. And I have exactly 30 pounds to lose, as well! Congratulations, what a great story!
This is the way I want to lose weight! Just eating regular food, in moderation and exercising! You should feel as proud as you look!!! Congratulations to you on the sweet success brought on by all of your hard work. You are an inspiration.
I really want to lose weight too! I appreciate the tips. I can definitely use them! I am also a long time reader. You and I have exchanged a few emails back and forth.
I am ready to print your blog entry and hang it on my fridge. Can I ask you ONE question though? What are your thoughts on exercise? Did you exercise at all? Thank you so much for sharing your story! It is very inspiring and encouraging! Huge congrats to you! You look amazing, as always! Amanda — I was one of those Jenny Craig girls. I lost 50 lbs in and promptly got pregnant with twins! However, I just could not justify the expense. Your plan sounds absolutely doable and a great alternative to Jenny Craig.
One thing I did learn while on the Jenny plan was to use vegetables when you need a snack. My favorite snack was carrots, celery and salsa! I did not really follow a regimented exercise program- I do have the dogs, so I take them outside to play, or go for walks and hikes- and I also have a stationary bike that I like to ride while watching TV.
She will kick your fanny! We also have Wii Fit love the yoga and hula hoop game! But I do credit the weight loss more to my diet changes rather than the exercise- cause I had been doing that all along! My ob-gyn even went so far as to say, you can spend an hour on the elliptical machine and burn enough calories to make up for a single serving bag of chips.
You look fantastic, by the way! Way to go Amanda! So enjoyed this blog. Blessings to you this Thanksgiving season! You look great and you have inspired me. I have gradually put on quite a bit of weight over the last few years.
I have had a terrible time trying to lose it. I was going to a gym and working really hard, but losing very little. I am going to try what you did. I need something that I can fit into my very crazy, busy life. What a blessing that you sent this out! Thanks so much for sharing. First off, I want to say congratulations! I think this is truly amazing! I am very glad you shared this.
There was a lot that I actually learned from this blog post. You look truly amazing! I am fortunately thin, but unfortunately not that healthy. This has inspired me to talk to my hubby as well and become more of a healthier couple: Thanks for sharing hon! I look forward to many more posts!
Thank you for the inspiration! I know it is all about diet and exercise but sometimes when those cravings hit, it is hard to remember. Thank you again — keep it up! Way to go, you have inspired me to get motivated and get healthy!!!
Thanks, Amanda… your blog never fails to amaze! Amanda, you are awesome! If I could even get down 5 lbs by Christmas, I would be thrilled!
Thanks for the inspiration Sister! Water intake…still working on that one. Heard it makes a HUGE difference though! That is great Amanda. I bet you crave the water now that is what happened to me. I did Weight Watchers and went from an 18 to a 2 was a 0 when I started dating my husband…guess that was a shocker for him — hee hee. Kept it off for over 7 years… I recently gained lbs. Amanda — you look wonderful.
Thanks for the inspiration. I may try to get back into that. It makes counting calories so much easier. Thanks for the motivation! Keep up the great work! I think I just need to start paying attention to what I am doing and this made it so simple!
I think it is something we all know — but just needed someone to remind us that it can be done! You look so happy and healthy.
I have some special days coming up early next year, and I have time to get on this before those arrive! We just LOVE you and all the creative spirit and energy you share with all of us! Lisa put this so well! Such a gracious hostess, even from afar. Oh my goodness you are looking fabulous!!! Hopefully he will come home to a svelte new wife!! Thank you for sharing this amazing and inspiring story!!
Well, I have to say first off that this is incredibly inspirational. Thank you for sharing this with us! I really do appreciate you sharing this with us. I hope to hear you post more about your journey? Amanada, I must say…. I lost my job a year or so ago and I am still unemployed! I have been depressed, I have isolated myself, and as I said, I physically feel uncomfortable. I think everyone is different. Thank you for sharing!! That is very inspiring! I do wonder though, what did you drink before switching over to water entirely?
Thank you so much for sharing the details of your weight loss. It is so hard to do it on you own, but your specifics really create a light at the end of the tunnel.
I am totally inspired! I started something similar to this but I let it slip by. I stuck with it for about a week and a half and then just went back to my normal routine. Thank you for this. I am going to the store after work and I am buying those VitaCraves!
I can give you my secret for weight loss. Oh, and when the second child comes along, see if you have time to eat for yourself! Plus, running after them too!
You look awesome…way to go. Wow…you really motivated me! One question though, regarding your water intake…is it just straight-up water or do you mix it with Crystal Light or something? I love my Diet Coke, but I am trying to switch to water…what worked for you in this area? Congrats to both of you on your weight loss.
Thanks so much for your tips. You can never get too many tips on weight loss. So any tips you want to share would be great. 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.
