14 days down baby! Woo HOO Woo HOO! I am a little excited just incase you were wondering 🙂 I have lost another 2 pounds to make it a total of 8. I feel like a “Supa Star”! Okay seriously I am really excited and proud of myself. There was only 1 day I um…got pushed off the wagon, by the chinese restaurant and baby shower. They are so rude that way! Lucky for me I have the best diet buddy ever and all of you to help me back on. *Thanks*

So this week in reflection. It has been liberating to feel so determined to succeed this time. Usually when I start a diet I use the weekends as an excuse to blow it and then try starting again the following monday. Then that monday turns into 2 or 3 mondays until I have gained it all back and feel hopeless. Today, monday I fell strong, proud and grateful. Strong, because I know I CAN do this! Proud, because 8 pounds is a freakin’ lot of weight and it is gone! Grateful, because this support system that has generated within our friends, family and here online has been so amazing. I cannot even start to tell you how much all of your words of encouragment and advice have helped me out 🙂

Oh by the way, I put on my pants today and the muffin top…it is turning into a mini-muffin top. Pretty soon it will be just batter and then it will be no sign of a muffin at all!

Much love from a Strong, Proud and Grateful Shannon
