A Year Later - From 26 to 27 in Pictures


Wednesday, June 22, 2011

A year ago today I posted a blog titled "One Year From Now" and I spoke about being fit when I turned 27. I had lost about 14 pounds at the time and was quite sure that I'd be at my goal weight in a year. I then ended the blog with a picture that I took that day saying 'May I never look like this again!!'.

Well I can honestly say that I am not at my goal weight just yet, but trust that I am MUCH closer now then I was a year ago. I've turned 27 in much better shape then I turned 26 and I am most definitely a lot more fit now then I was then. After taking that picture I decided that every month on the 22nd I would take a picture in the same clothes to monitor my progress and I would post it a year later. Well sparklers, believe it or not but it's a year later and I'm so excited to share my progress with you so without further ado here's my progress over the past year!



















At some point I had to buy a new shirt because the other one got too big, I wish I could remember what month it was! Either way, I'm so happy with my progress and I'm shocked to see just how I've changed in one year with these pictures. I went from 214 pounds to 156 pounds, losing 58 pounds, and went from wearing a size 20 pants and an XL shirt to wearing a size 8/10 pants and a Medium shirt. I'm so proud of myself and I can't wait to see what progress I'll make over the next year. I still plan on taking pictures so I'm excited for the new progress pictures I'll post next year!

Keep sparking sparklers, and I thank all of you for the continued encouragement and support that keeps me going, I love you all!!!
