I Love You..Cheesecake :)

I always said if it weren't for french fries and pizza, I would be skinny. That is no longer true. That hasn't been true since I was pregnant with my older son. I have a huge dislike for cheese(except pizza and Doritos) and I NEVER ate cheesecake. On a whim, while pregnant, I tried it. We have been best friends ever since. Today was lunch with the girls. And the boy. My mother in law, her friend, my daughter, my son and I headed to the Cheesecake Factory. I splurged on a nice slice of strawberry. Did I mention they have fresh whipped cream? We all have to indulge every now and again, but it is feeling guilty that bothers me. So, now my motto is : If it weren't for french fries, pizza and cheesecake, I'd be skinny :)

Remember Me?

It's been awhile. A loooooong while. Anyhow, I am back with lots of updates. After losing a few pounds more in the, the husband and I decided to join Jenny Craig. Can I tell you what a great decision that was? I am at an all new low of 135.8 pounds! I don't exactly look like Valerie Bertenelli in a bikini, but the muffin top is severely diminishing. We started in December, not really sure how we would like it. Surprisingly, the food is pretty tasty! My husband is the pickiest eater and even he likes it. He is down to pre-wedding weight, while I still have a few pounds to go. My normal weight usually hangs around 120-125. I will be thrilled to make it there, but I am taking it day by day. I have added an inspirational picture from our engagement party to keep me going.
