Things are going good in the Gillispie household. We just went on vacation to Florida and it was AMAZING. This was the 4th time I have been there, and besides my honeymoon....this was the BEST vacation I've ever been on. My in-laws are just the greatest and helped out so much with the boys. Drew and I were actually able to go and spend quite a bit of alone time together....it was much needed.
About a month before we left for vacation, I had set a goal for myself that I would get down 12 more lbs (yes, I realize that is A LOT in one month, especially after already being on a diet for 4 months), now thinking about it....it was kind of an unrealistic goal. Instead I ended up losing 6 more, which I was still very happy with. That made it a total of 39 lbs lost since I first started this whole ordeal (65 lbs from my very largest weight). While on vacation, I ate anything and EVERYTHING I wanted....fried fish, french fries, onion rings...we also spent about $80 in the candy store there (don't judge...my husband has a MAJOR sweet tooth, and I still have more than half of my bag, which my brother-in-law got into and ate most of). Needless to say, when I got home and stepped on the scale. I was not very happy. I was up those 6 lbs that I had just lost. It took me a month to lose them and 9 days to gain them back. Time to get serious....It's been a week since I've been home and I am now down those 6 lbs + 1. Which means, I have lost 40 lbs!! That is goal #2 ladies and gentleman....time to do something nice for myself! I have actually already decided that I am going to get myself some of the "It works" wraps...hopefully it will help out with some of this nasty loose skin I've developed after losing all this weight.
I know I have said this before in one of my blogs, but there is nothing better than having someone tell you that you have been an inspiration to them to lose weight. I have several people on my friends list who are doing an awesome job with their weight loss. Shout out to Sara and Christy...you guys are doing amazing! Keep up the good work!
