So, my Revolution last year was to improve on all things "kitchen". That meant doing the dishes in a more timely manner (getting a new dishwasher in 2011 really helped with that!), cooking healthier, making meal-times more of a family affair. That's really all there was to it. I did not go into it intending to lose weight, learn about whole, clean, raw foods, etc... All I wanted to do was improve in those little areas...cleanliness and family time. But God heard my prayer and indeed made my revolution into a REVOLUTION. I have never experienced so much change in one year.
So I'm going to step out a little and put my before/after photos up. I'm not finished with this revolution. I need one more year to complete it. But I've made such giant leaps that the baby steps left shouldn't be too hard. (I can hope, anyway!) These photos are really hard for me to put up because they're embarrassing. I never saw myself as being overweight, unless I looked at a photo of myself. And looking at these photos was my reality check. I'm so glad I embarked on this journey! (may I never go back)

|That was my favorite shirt but after taking this photo I realized it was a size 16/18. It went into the donate pile!|
