Well you should show off you look wonderful. Doesn't that feel great to be 20 pounds lighter. As for 50 you do not look it at all. 50 just gets younger all the time when I see you.

I adore that top, praise God for the weight release. He must increase, I must decrease. More of Him, less of me. I always think of this scripture as He has been molding me and setting me free from excess weight. And the last pic of you girl...oh my goodness, you are radiating. 50??? Chickie poo, you are one fine looking half a century lady..lol. WOW, you really do look fabulous!

Creative Breathing said...

Holly, You know what is making me laugh? You are standing on your sofa! Congratulations to you my friend on entering your 50's just as you would like yourself to be. Your smile is so beautiful! I just adore you! E

Great, you look lovely...and it's nice that hubby makes you smile all the time...I want to lose weight I started but lost my motivation. I have been trying to get back on track. So I'm glad I found your page..I thought maybe I could find some motivation here. your post about lessor amounts I think is really the key because when you deprive yourself then you want want want...Good job..glad for you!!!
