We've Lost an Olsen Twin!


On March 1, Sam and I decided that we needed to change our eating habits.  We were way to used to eating out, and we were looking more than a little chubby.  Anyway, we decided that we wanted our diet to be easy.  We didn't want to deny ourselves anything, because we've both done diets that limit the types of food that you can eat, and those are no fun!  So, we made some rules:

1.  We would ourselves to around 1500-1800 calories per day.  
2.  If we wanted to eat out, we could, but we had to share the meal.
3.  We wouldn't snack between meals.

Since then, Sam has lost 75+ pounds, and I've lost 25!  It has been relatively easy, because we've been doing it together.  We still enjoy eating at all of our favorite places, but we just share, which not only saves calories, but $$$ too!  What a deal!

That cracks me up about the Olsen twin! Remember when we loved to watch Full House over and over! That is awesome, congrats! I will have to try that same thing! I wouldn't mind loosing the other Olsen twin!

Love the title!-- That may actually be more than an Olsen twin. Hoo Ra! Sharing a meal-- great idea! Darryl would never go for that though; The guy orders by portion size (the bigger the better). I'd just have to start taking a friend to share with I guess.

SO AWESOME! You should have posted before and after pictures...seriously, you've lost a kindergartner and Sam has lost 3. THAT'S WONDERFUL! I have a quote on my fridge and in my pantry that says, 'Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.' to remind me that seriously, at times, it's not worth the indulgence! Good for you!

That is awesome! I agree that you may have lost more than an Olsen twin, but the title is perfect. I've been working out like crazy to get rid of my baby weight and I'm almost there, just an annoying 2 pounds that seem to want to stay.
