If you've followed my blog over the past year, you'll know that last year, after going on the Dukan Diet, I was able to fit into my senior prom dress from 2001. Click HERE to read that blog post.
After gaining a few of those pounds back, I recently went on a low carb diet and mild exercise lifestyle, and with the help of Plexus Slim, I was able to drop 11 pounds in one month to date (07/11/2013)
Now I can't even remember being 114 pounds, except maybe my freshman year in high school, so of course, I had to see if I could fit into the prom dress that I wore when I was a freshman in high school (1998).
I think I squealed a little when I zipped it all the way up and it fit with a little room to spare!
Now as a 30 year old momma of soon to be 3 year old twin boys and a soon to be 6 year old little girl, fitting into a dress you wore freshman year seemed laughable. I saved all my prom dresses for my little girl to play with and never even considered I'd be able to fit into them after having babies, especially after a twin pregnancy.
Here is a photo of me the day I went in to have my twin boys....I think you can tell how huge I was, and I think you'll have a pretty good idea of the damage they did to my midsection lol.
Don't get me wrong, I love my babies with every ounce of me, but boy does pregnancy change your body!
I had success last year getting to around 118 but I just couldn't drop those last 3 to 115 (still a healthy weight for my height and frame). It just seemed impossible and I figured that's just what I was meant to be (not that 118 is a bad weight to be).
When I decided to change my lifestyle this past June 4th and try out a product called Plexus Slim, I was skeptical, but I gave it a whirl.
When I dropped 5 pounds in 4 days I was shocked!
If you click HERE you can see my daily weight loss and also the exercise routine I use.
I even dropped another pound the other day to 114 and I wasn't even trying to lose anymore weight.
My main goal now is to maintain my weight, eat healthier, exercise as I have been and be in the best shape of my life.
Don't let anyone tell you that just because you are over 30 and have kids that you can't be in the best shape of your life. It doesn't matter if you have over 100 pounds to lose or 5; you can do it ladies! I certainly don't possess any special powers or anything, so if I can do it, you can too!
If you have any questions for me about my diet or exercise routine, (that I didn't already answer HERE), or are interested in learning more about Plexus Slim please send me an email or message me on Facebook.
