FABULOSITY!!! congratulations! and not just on the weight loss - what you did to turn your family's eating habits around is nothing short of miraculous.

soooo, inquiring minds want to know - what did you plant in your garden besides spinach? did you grow enough stuff to can/freeze for the winter?

I planted spinach, carrots, green onions, and peppers.

I didn't want to take on too much just in case I found it wasn't for me. But I loved it. It was relaxing and enjoyable for the whole family. MUCH bigger garden this year. Spinach, brussel spouts ( kids LOVE them grilled and dipped in olive oil), peppers, kale, corn, potatoes, watermelon, tomatoes, and some herbs.
I'm hoping to freeze and can. It's a great hobby to get into and I'm so excited about it!!

Slow and Steady Wins the Race!

In August 2013, I wasn't sure if I could try to lose weight again, but I convinced myself to give it all I had just until October 31, 2013, at which point I would revisit my goals. I told myself I'd be pleased with my decision in the future. When October arrived, I felt deeply grateful indeed. It's been 24 months and over 121 lbs lost, and I remain deeply grateful every day. There are no words to explain how worth it the hard work is.
Reached onederland 31.12.2013!
Became 'overweight' (BMI of 29.7) on July 29, 2014!

You look amazing! What a transformation! You are an inspiration. I like that you didn't lose it all over night. You are proof that slow and steady wins the race!

First goal: under 180:
Second goal: 175 or below:
Third goal: 168 (no longer overweight):
Fourth goal: 160 or below:
Final goal: 145-155 (not sure if this will ever happen):

Congratulations. You look fantastic, and it's great that you made healthier living a family thing. This year I've been learning what you've already learned about processed foods and vegetable oils and such. Knowing how bad the bad stuff is makes eating right a bit easier.
