We thunk it and then it wasn't


Why do I expect spring weather every March when it never happens? This year was NO exception...worse in fact! Ah well...we took as many bike rides as possible anyway...with just a few extra layers!

In March Christian and I started My Fitness Pal (MFP) and what a fun journey it has been! We changed our lifestyle. After I had Spencer my weight sky rocketed and I wasn't going to have it. As much as I hate it I will post a picture of me in March...and this picture is 10lbs lighter than my heaviest! I let myself get away and it makes me sick to think about it! Christian and I, along with several other family members, have been so successful with MFP! I feel so awesome these days and Christian and I are now training for the So Jo Half Marathon in September.

Oh and I have to add that Christian is looking mighty fine these days. Mmmm...mmmm!!!

Here are some pictures to re-cap our March

Freezing but we were anxious to get out!!They always tend to fall asleep at some point. Spence had just woken up but Ava was pooped! it is. Christian and I before the big weight loss! As of this picture Christian is down 22lbs and I am down 33lbs. I can't believe we had that much to lose...and we're still going! Ew...this picture is gross!!!
FYI: My SIL, Mary, just called and informed me that this picture is a "bad" picture. Why? She said that this picture makes Christian and I look bigger than we ever were. Makes me feel a little better because this picture is HIDEOUS!! ;)
Our photo shoot was in March and these are my favorites...

April was way more exciting so stay tuned!!

That's amazing! We need to get together b/c I want to hear all about how you guys have lost the weight! I really need to make some changes; just having a hard time getting started.

And I can't believe how big Spence is!

You do look amazing. Makes me want to jump on the band wagon again. I love the photo of the kids in the bike trailer. We need one of those trailers.
