When the going gets tough... I get tougher!

My journey began on 1/1/13. I did great for a few months. Lost 40 lbs, went down a couple of sizes, and felt really great about myself. Then I hit the dreaded plateau. I stayed there for weeks and weeks. Then I gave up. It happened slowly but it surely happened. Over the next 6 months I managed to gain back 10-15 pounds. Fortunately I didn't have to switch back to bigger clothes (cause I got rid of all of them). I tried a few times after that to get back on track but my heart was never in it so ...

Fortunately I didn't have to switch back to bigger clothes (cause I got rid of all of them). I tried a few times after that to get back on track but my heart was never in it so it didn't work.

Then in March of 2014 my husband and my best friend staged a two person, two day intervention. It was the worst two days of my life. We are all very stubborn people and we fought that whole time. I realize they did it because they love me, and they learned that the way they approached me with it, was not a way that works for me... Needless to say we moved past it, but I came out of it with something to prove.

I decided to give this whole weight loss thing one more chance to work. I've been busting my hump to either lose weight or prove to them both that even with a healthy diet and exercise my body won't let go of the fat. I figured no matter the outcome I'd win either way.

Since that horrible week in March I've had my ups and downs and in the beginning... a lot of downs. Lately though, I can see real progress! I've lost 22 pounds since restarting my commitment in March and overall I've lost over 48 pounds from my heaviest weight! I'm doing great and getting better everyday! I've changed my life for the better and I'm not gonna quit now!

Update 9/13/14
I did the Summer 5% challenge and I did great for the majority of the challenge! Unfortunately like in the past my vacation kind of derailed my routine. Then a new job and a new school year for the kids further derailed my routine. I have been fortunate enough to be able to say that I haven't really gained (maybe 3 pounds) since my lowest weight so far and since then I have been maintaining. Phew!

It's time for the Fall challenge to begin though and it can't come soon enough! I need the commitment to keep me accountable. To push me to exercise daily and to track my food intake! I look forward to seeing how far I can push myself this challenge! Let's go SUDS!!!!

Hi Zor ! Love the addition to the page. Such a small gain. Please celebrate it wasn't more. I totally love being. A leader, it helps me to be more focused.. It's also a lot of fun. Totally think it s way to much enjoyment. The other leaders and I got to goofing around soooo much we are often in hysterical giggles.

I had worked as a manager and was always playing games on the associates, which most of the time they never figured out who was doing them, that was also for just giggles. Maryann and I get going good quite a bit.

TY soooo much for the kind words.
