Ah-a lovely rainy Friday morning. I'm loving life! 

Last night I had the best meal ever! I worked til 10 last night, and had to eat a late dinner. So I came home to a 'dukan' dinner made by my sister and mom and boy oh boy was it amazing!!

Meatballs with yummy 'dukan' gravy, 'mashed potatoes' (broccoli and cauliflower w/ ff sour cream and ff milk), and green beans. 

I wanted to take a picture of the meal..but I ate it too fast lol sorry! 

Anywho! This morning I looked in my closet at my favorite pair of jeans, that only fit once (they were ALWAYS too small, and when I say once, I mean I've only wore them for one day) and I knew there was no way they would fit today, but I thought I would try to see how much more I might have to lose...

THEY TOTALLY FIT! Excuse me as I do a happy dance! *happy happy dance dance happy happy dance dance*

Wow. It's a good morning indeed. 

Love you all. Dream.  Believe. Achieve.

So I guess I'm bored this morning..before and during pics..again ugh. I'm so annoying.

Two posts in like less than a hour!? Okay I guess.

I put together some wayyy before pics (where I was very close to 300lbs!) with pics from's crazy to see where you have come from and where you are and I am excited to see where I'm going! :)

What do I want to do in my life that weight has stopped me from doing?


I want to jump out a freakin' plane, yet still feel like I am soaring so high in the sky that nothing can hold me down!

There is a weight limit to an individual jumping out of a plane that you have to be under.

I am now under that weight limit.

YAY! I will never EVER let weighing too much be an issue in my life ever again! 2 months down, four to go. Man, I can do this! I am doing this!

I am going to wait until I am in 'One-derland' to reward myself with a skydiving adventure. It's going to be crazy awesome, and I will be there in no time :)

Not much to say in this post except, that I love life :)

Live like you were dying. Don't Stop Believing.

I freaking love you guys :)

Replace the word 'hate' with 'love' :)

So...weight loss is an interesting thing...I've been looking back on older pictures of me, and its amazing how as I lose weight, my smile gets brighter and brighter! I learned to love everything about me though, no matter what!

I always struggled with my nose, people would call it huge and fat and stuff and I was always insecure about it until I said to myself, "Look, you cant let others views of you affect you to the point that you dont feel comfortable in your own skin. Own it." So I did. I took the one thing I hated about myself and replaced the word 'hate' with the word 'love'. It didn't happen over night, but now I am madly in love with my big-ol' nose!

And I'm not just weight loss! I'm a writer! I'm a director! I'm an actress! I loveeeeeeeeee make-up! I'm a weird Backstreet Boys and New Kids On The Block fan, I dance in my bedroom alone at night rocking out to Katy Perry. I find cartoons still entertaining! I need to remember that yes, I am on the weight loss journey, but it isn't the only thing going on in my life.

That's why I love Dukan, it makes it kind of easy to forget your on a 'diet'. You just begin to live life with the new habits you have learned, it becomes a daily rountine like brushing ones teeth!

I said earlier how I am so into make-up, for awhile I wanted to do it professionally until I realized that I was no good at doing OTHER'S make-up. (Sorry for the people I made look like clowns-my bad!) So I guess I'll have to stick with being my own make-up artist. Here's a few pics from my make-up adventures! I plan to have fun with this cheap $1 eyeshadow kit with so many colors that I'm addicted to (and it works better than any $14 eye make-up I have ever had!) and I'll take pics of those outcomes this week!

Be True. Be You. Embrace it. You're Beautiful. Inside and Out. OWN IT!

Push through!

PLATEAU! What an ugly word. But the best feeling in the world is when you break through it. It's Freeing!

So last week the scale showed that I was up 1.3 lbs. UGH, I was so angry! I was doing everything PERFECT! What happened! It wasn't that TOM, there was no cheating, no clue! But, like a good girl, I logged it on my Wii Fit, and it stayed that high for 4 days...then I suddenly lost that plus .5 lbs. I feel good! I have reached my weekly goal, so I am pretty happy with that.

So I stopped and thought, even with the 1.3 gain-I was still surpassing my goal for the week. Why in the world was I even upset? Just seeing that dot on my Wii chart go up instead of the constant downward trend drove me crazy! I felt grossed out with myself...but now thinking about it, I feel pretty great.

Next weekend will mark my two months at Dukan. And I am 3 pant sizes down...and tons of weight lighter! 4 more lbs and I'll hit 30lbs lost!

So I just need to realize that I am losing. In a minute I'll be buying jean sizes that I've never owned.I feel GREAT inside and out, and I need to remember that it isn't always what the scale is telling me, because to be honest that scale can be quite the bully some days! Yet, it's about the journey. It's a journey that I am loving and passionate about.

Below are two yummy looking foods...I made an awesome bun for a grilled chicken sandwich I had today, and for dinner I had Tomato Basil pizza. So yum!

Love :) <3

Tomato Basil Pizza...yummy!

Best Dukan Bun Ever!
