Hot Mama!!!

You look so good. I didn't even recognize you in the first picture. It's so easy to gain the weight and so hard to lose it, so I applaud you. 30 lbs is a huge loss. So any tips besides eat less and move more?

p.s. The new haircut suits you very well.

I noticed how thin you looked in the new pics. Great job!!

Thanks Geneva! I hate that first pic of me so much. It was hard to even put it up here.

I joined Weight Watchers in April just on a fluke, really. A friend was joining and asked me if I wanted to. After I lost about 15 pounds, I started exercising - treadmill/walking, biking, yoga, zumba, etc. I also started drinking a cup (literally 8 ounces) of coffee in the morning. It sped up my metabolism a bit and gave me more energy for exercise, without interrupting my sleep. I don't think it's been as effective lately, so I'm probably going to wean myself off of it and save it as a tool in my arsenal if I need it later on. Going to try to lose another 20 by next summer!
