I've been a bad. bad blogger!

I have been SO busy! All of a sudden I have become the "go to girl" for cakes. I feel bad blogging about my new cake business on a diet blog, but for me cake is not really a temptation. I'm just not a fan really. Now if someone was asking me to make home made ice cream, I'd be in BIG trouble. LOL

Also, my mother in law and two of my nieces were here for a week and that kept me very busy. They left Thursday morning and I gathered the strength to weigh myself on Friday. I was an even 145 lbs. Not bad, considering we ate like monsters and sipped mojitos many nights of the week while she was here. I did, however, manage to work out 6 of the 7 days so I guess it all worked out. Now, I'm back into serious mode since the kids are back in school and my schedule is more normal again. I have a standing restaurant order for 2 of my cakes each week so that keeps me busy too. I'm also starting a pastry class on September 7th that lasts 4 months. I'm super excited about that.

Otherwise, I'm pretty good. My self confidence is growing like crazy and I think that my weight loss and new healthier lifestyle is ironically enough, the biggest reason why my cake business actually started! Here are a few pics of the most recent cakes I made and sold.

This is a photo of me this same time last year at Disney World with the family. Wow, was I ever fat! Look at those chunk ass arms and that chin that doesn't stop! How did I think the shoulders of that shirt were remotely flattering on me? LOL

This is a photo of me from 2 weeks ago. I wish I had one from the front taken at this party. The funny part is, I'm slowly escaping an uncomfortable grill debate between my current husband (on the right) and my previous husband (directly behind me) LOL


Too bad I'm still a chunky muffin and want to lose another 10-20 pounds now.

Just a quick update

I don't have much to write about lately. I've been doing lots of projects around the house (decorating, painting, etc.). Weight is coming off very slowly, but hey, at least it's headed in the right direction. I'm 2.9 pounds away from my original goal, but now I want to lose another 10 pounds after that!
