People ask me all the time, how did you lose the weight?? What am I eating? My answer is whatever I want...for the most part.
I took this picture after my Dr. visit and discovering I lost 56 pounds. I don't own a scale so I had no idea I lost all that weight. I knew my clothes where roomy but that was my only indicator that I was loosing weight. I have been on every diet imaginable and nothing ever worked. I would loose weight and gain it all back and then some. I revisited my old food log of previous weight loss attempts. I was weighing myself weekly, taking my measurements, counting carbs, counting calories and yet I was a size 24/26. OH MY!!!
So I decided to ditch the scale and just make better eating choices. Eat what I wanted in moderation..if I had a sweet tooth, eat the ice cream and get back to business. I ate clean 5-6 days a week and gifted myself a cheat day. A cheat day doesn't mean to eat as much as you want for 24 hours but have a treat and eat sensibly. No stress. No pressure.
The No Stress approach helped melt the weight off. I started April 2014 a 24/26 and today July 2015 I am a 16/18 and dropping.
I added some meal ideas, healthy snack and meal replacement photos of what I usually eat day to day.
NOTE: Just because I don't go to the gym regularly doesn't mean I don't work up a sweat taking long walks, dancing for hours while cleaning the house and taking the stairs instead of the elevator. There are many ways to bust a sweat!!! *wink*

October 2009 my birthday girls had a double birthday celebration at Sweet & Sassy! We chose the
Spa theme so the girls got yummy facials, mani's, makeovers and cute little updo's bedazzled with glitter and gems. It was a splurge but well worth it especially since there is a team to do the party for you. The entertainment, styling and they even serve the food and cake for you. Parents and guests don't have to lift a finger. Just plenty of fun and pictures.
This section is reserved for the birthday girls.
Each guest and birthday girl gets to make their own sugar scrub to take home.
Make your own lip gloss!
