On my way!

I have been on my migraine medicine since the beginning of September, and it has jump started my weight loss, but it is not the continued catalyst that has brought me to my 32 pound weight loss so far.
I still have a ways to go, but the difference this time more than any of the times before is I can smell it. I can see the ending, and I can taste it!
My goal is to lose 40-45 pounds by Christmas. I am starting to fit into my smaller clothes again. Although they aren't technically small clothes - they are small for me, and I will take that. That is a triumph. I have not seen them since Noah was in third grade - before I got pregnant with Amelia.
So, perhaps my migraine medicine is helping, but I have also changeed the whole way that I eat. I eat SO much healthier now than I did before. I am so nervous about the diabetes that i knocking on my door. With both Toby and Amelia (and I am sure Noah too - although it was too early to have been tested) I was insulin dependant. My family has a history of type 2 diabetes, and if I can keep it away even for a small amount of time with my diet I will.
Last night was the first time in a LONG time that I ate anything with flour and or sugar in it. Even when we were in Las Vegas I skipped on dessert. I will have a bite now and then, but not a whole amount of something. And, you know, I find I am not missing out on it one bit. I made raspberry almond muffins. I ate one - was happy eating it, and sent the rest to my moms. It was good. I was happy, and I don't miss or want them.
I am not craving things like that either. Chips, no thanks. If I want them - I'll take a handful, but then I am ok and done. Honestly, I am enjoying it, and I feel so much better for it!
