It doesn't help that I have eaten some Halloween candy, and I've been preparing for my son's 3rd Birthday party this weekend. I had to experiment with something new, so I made Red Velvet Cake balls from Bakerella - and OH MY GOSH!!! Today I have to make them again, along with a Triple Chocolate cake that I'm decorating like Bob the Tomato from Veggie Tales. So Yikes!!! Wish me luck over the weekend, because I'm going to need it!!
Also, the other evening I had a conversation with my husband, Kris. It went kind of like this...
Sarah: Why can't I get off the last stinkin' 6 pounds?!? I'm busting my butt!!
Kris: Hold on, I thought it was one pound? Why 6?
Sarah: Well, 6 pounds would get me to the weight I was when we got married.
Kris: So your goal weight really isn't a goal weight - it's a "pre" goal weight?!?
Sarah: Pretty much.
Kris: Why can't you just look at how far you've come? And you of all people know that the last few pounds are the hardest, so don't beat yourself up!
Can I just say how much I love this guy who always brings things in perspective for me. Of course after we had this little conversation I had to go and say "Why does it look like I've lost 19 pounds in my face and not my butt???" Honestly, you can really tell that I've lost weight in my face. Just check out the pictures below!
The top two pictures were taken in Phoenix in June, and the bottom picture was taken on Mother's Day.
Here is a picture of my face now - Can you tell a difference?
