WE CAN DO IT!!!

I started transforming my body on my 29th birthday. I didnt want to bring weight issues into my 30s. I wanted to leave it behind, and reinvent my life. After being size 20, 208 pounds for my adult life- I had had ENOUGH.

I made the commitment and stuck with it. I am now a size 2, 115 pounds. I have lost almost 100 pounds. It feels amazing. I am no longer trapped in my body. I feel strong, confident, and in charge of my life. I cannot tell you how different ALL aspects of my ...
I started transforming my body on my 29th birthday. I didnt want to bring weight issues into my 30s. I wanted to leave it behind, and reinvent my life. After being size 20, 208 pounds for my adult life- I had had ENOUGH.

I made the commitment and stuck with it. I am now a size 2, 115 pounds. I have lost almost 100 pounds. It feels amazing. I am no longer trapped in my body. I feel strong, confident, and in charge of my life. I cannot tell you how different ALL aspects of my life are now. The weight loss has changed how I approach the world, people, and I am full of energy and life.

The motivation you seek is found inside yourself. Reach deep inside, and if you really really want it- go and get it! :)
Today is the only day we have, so let's make it count!!!

*90% of successful weight loss is watching what you eat. No matter how much I work out, food is key. :)

I also hit the gym with cardio 6 days a week and weight training 4 days a week.

Update:
I couldn't get enough information about fitness and nutrition- I started helping others and got my ISSA Fitness Trainer Certification.

I also competed in an NPC Bikini Competition. It was the most frightening experience of my life, but I got on that stage at 115 with a flat tummy and a big smile. I have always been beautiful (before or after) and I am proud that I have been able to create goals and see them achieved.

Anything you want, it is possible.

Take ACTION, make a PLAN, and GO FOR IT!!!!!
I believe in YOU.

Transformation takes time. You would never expect a woman who has been pregnant for a week to hurry up and give birth to a healthy baby in a month. It's the magic of changing matter after all. Stay strong. You've got this!!!

You look absolutely amazing. I have been searching for motivation again. I read what you have written and now I am beginning to realize all my motivation came from within and I just have to look for it. Thank you for having that on your page, it has helped me realize more of what I already know. Thanks and have a great day!

Girl! I just can't get over how amazing you are (and look!!!)!!!! You are truly an inspiration to me! I am at the halfway point of reaching my goals and was about at the same place you were when you started...I am just having such a hard time getting it all off (I've been teetering between 155 and 145 for about 2 years!). Your success always inspires me :-)
