My name is Anna. I'm a 38 year old audiologist living in Minneapolis. I started on my weight loss adventure in February of 2010 after learning that I would be presenting to over 200 people (my first time speaking publicly) in October of that year. I successfully dropped 20 of the 60 pounds in my goal, which helped tremendously with my confidence. In 2012, I was back at that conference as a presenter again, but this time at a svelte 155 pounds. I was able to use my story to "gain the attention" of the audience and relate it to struggles our patients go through to maintain the positive changes in their life. I maintained my 60 pound weight loss for two year until I took on a new role with my company that required significant travel, increased responsibility and more time at work. My workout schedule of 4-5 Zumba classes per week was interrupted. Missed classes turned into no classes and I now find myself up 30 pounds. I'm ready to find balance in 2016 and work off those clingy 30 pounds to get back to the version of me that I'm most comfortable with and identify with.

    Thank you for commenting on my blog "How Far I've Come". I'm glad this blog will fuel you in getting back on track and appreciate the support! Also, be proud of yourself for catching yourself at 20 lbs gain back. It sucks gaining all the weight back and now struggling to get any gains in weight loss since then. I'm holding the line at 4 lbs loss from that ugly 200, but I will take it. One day at a time, one choice at a time, we will get there.

    Thanks girl! It's so easy to slip back up without even thinking anything changes. I'm making progress. Started Crossfit and LOVE it! 4 pounds down in 2 weeks :)
