WOW, What a year it has been! I would never have imagined I would make it this far on my fitness journey..honestly I expected myself to give up by now. That was the normal cycle I would go through start a program,stop a program, lose some,gain A LOT back. But spark people and my trainer really just worked for me. I also had a better support system which made it easier too. And I guess I just reached that breaking point where enough was enough. ANYONE CAN DO THIS, NEVER LOSE HOPE ON YOUR SELF IT CAN BE DONE. HARD WORK AND DEDICATION WILL PAY OFF!
Its hard to believe that one year ago I weighed 297 pounds and was getting short of breath taking my daughter trick or treating! This year was so much easier! I wore my pedometer and we walked 2 miles, no shortness of breath
Little things like this remind me of why I chose to change my life and I am so glad I did. I only ate 5 treats tonight vs last year I had one or two HANDFULS of candy from my daughter! Hope everyone had a great Halloween!
Another month down and another 10 pounds with it! I really hope I can continue at this pace, and reach my goal before my birthday 2-5-2013 I attended service tonight at a church I had not been to in over a year and everyone asked where the other half of me was! So many great compliments lit up my night. One member in particular was very interested in how I done it and I mentioned SP and exercise. I let her know just like everyone else SHE can do it, just stay positive and never lose site of the goal. Many changes are life changes but I promise it is so worth it to feel this good!
This month has been full of awesome weight related changes. I discovered that I can now wear a 14 in jeans vs the 26's I used to wear, and Med/lg shirts compared to the 3x tops. And even more exciting my nursing scrubs have been replaced with med and lg now too, compared to the 2 and 3X I was wearing 9 months ago. I honestly never believed I would ever be able to lose this much weight and I thank everyone who has supported me.My family, coworkers,and this site! I now believe anything is possible. I hope to get down to a size 8 before the summer of 2013! I will keep you posted
Well as the title says I FINALLY DID IT!!! Reached my goal of 100 pounds gone! I have also lost 15 points off my BMI going from Morbid Obesity to Overweight, lost 55 inches, and 15% body fat. ALL WITHOUT SURGERY OR MAGIC PILLS! Just old fashioned exercise and diet...and I dont really like the word diet it is more like a healthier eating option for life Everything in life is so much better, I feel better have more, self confidence , dont feel like the FAT one anymore. I started with small changes, anyone can do it, just gotta get motivated enough...Finally decide that YOU have had enough and the RESULTS will be AMAZING!
