I've come so far!

Saturday, January 21, 2012

It's been quite a while since I last March lol. So what have I been up to?? Well working out of course. I am just about at my goal! A loss of almost 60lbs. When I started i was 217lbs, after the birth of my last child in February 2010, then joined spark in April at 214lbs. At the moment I am at 159lbs. My goal is between 155 and very close!

I really took off after March and meeting up with my Bestie Kryanprincess! It was such a great visit. And really learned a lot about eating, and she shared her exercises with me. I know we both took away so much. Definitely what we both needed. When I got back I just kept plugging away, focusing more, eating more clean. There were a few tough times on the scale, but i sailed through. I was mainly running, then my husband got the itch and we started weight training, THAT was awesome! He said it was "such a turn on"...OK lol. So did that for a couple months. Then life got busy and for him, he went back to work in September, and making time for workouts for him has been tough. So I went back to running. Getting close to my goal weight, and needed to change it up. Well, my lil sis introduced me to the Insanity program. WOW! So I started in October my weight 168lbs...First off, I had NO IDEA the booty kicking I was about to recieve. My sis says, I know you can do this. So, I thinking, just doing! IT. WAS.TOUGH! There were times I was exhausted, times I collapsed on the floor, I even ...Cried..YES! I cried, frustrated at myself for not being able to do an exercise, not being able to keep up. Well, I learned HOW intense this program was. I just kept mowing through. I did miss days, those days I ran. There were times I did NOT want to but I DID anyway! This program pushed me through my plateau, pushed me to the max. I learned a lot! I push harder each workout.
So I have pics. My very best friend(Kryanpricess) fixed up for me! She did such a fantastic job! Thank you ! The left side is Nov 2010 Middle is Oct 2011(start of Insanity) And right is Jan 2012 ( a couple weeks after insanity)

I still can't believe the difference!
So many people keep saying "your so skinny" "look at you" ' you look great, what are you doing?"
Well...what am I doing??? I AM TAKING CARE OF MYSELF! YES!!! I AM HEALTHY!!! I have had such wonderful support and I am so grateful to ALL my friends and family!!!! Near and far! Could NOT have DONE THIS WITHOUT YOU!!!!! XOXOXOXOXO

    I'm so jealous of you. Wish that I was close to my goal weight of 120 pounds but I'm not. I did lose 3 pounds since yesterday. I was at 215 pounds yesterday and today I'm at 212 pounds. This blog entry has inspired me to keep going so I can be a whole lot closer to my goal weight. Thanks.
