I’m halfway to my goal of losing 30 pounds by my next birthday (in November). So far I’ve lost fifteen pounds. I know I will really need to push myself with diet and exercise to lose the other fifteen. I’m trying to increase my yoga and pilates workouts and need to take more walks with the puppies, which will be easier now that the days are getting longer. I can’t really walk all three dogs by myself, although I guess I could take them out separately and leave a couple at home now that Darwin is getting big enough to leave alone.

It’s nice that the size 12 jeans actually fit again (yay!) — but now I would like to feel better in them, and mostly, just feel better!
