That’s my workout buddy & baby sister Haddie. She’s a little dream. Anyhow, I went from 117 to 103 lbs through good old-fashion diet and exercise. It took about 6 months. That sounds horribly long, but I didn’t know what I was doing at first. I thought my one mile runs and semi regular workouts were enough. I found out that diet is really key though – they say it’s about 80% of the results, but workout is essential for toning and especially for blasting off the weight that just likes to stay around. Once you get where you want, it’s a lot easier to maintain that weight and tone with a lot less effort. It isn’t fair, but it’s great! I put one of my first go-to workout pictures I found useful from Pinterest below.
