Hey there, Hot Stuff!

I have to share a little personal celebration- although this is a bit of a lame post as it lacks pictures. But no matter! I'm doing a little happy dance because...

... I'm seeing a number on the scale I haven't seen in 10 years. Ok, 11+ years! I'm in a size that I've never worn!(Though this may be in part because I swear they have sized up everything. Still going to celebrate!)

And I'm not even sure how it happened. Yeah, I know way back New Years-ish I posted this schmancy 8 week Transition Diet from Beachbody we were going to work on. Totally honest with you- pretty much never got past the first couple weeks. (And never got back to working out like I wanted, either.) Yet, the pounds kept coming off!

So what is my secret? Was it some magic pill, potion or cleanse? Well again, I'm not entirely sure but I can tell you the couple changes I made and adhered to the past few months:

1. No soda. None.
2. Lots of water.
3. Reduced milk/dairy intake.

That's it. I'm now 10lbs under what I was when I got pregnant with my 4 year old. And I was in pretty good shape even then!

This is not to say that I don't believe in regular exercise- that's very important and we're working on incorporating that more into our daily life. But I do hope this might be motivational to someone out there not sure where to start. We didn't even drink that much soda to begin with, so if you're a big soda drinker you may see better results than I have!

So there you go! My newly discovered weight-loss secrets! Grab that reusable water bottle and fill 'er up with filtered tap water. Really technical, eh? Happy drinking!
