Finding inspiration from those who are inspired by me.....

Thursday, July 05, 2012

Today is 570 (give or take!) days since I started going back to the gym, and lost an amazing amount of weight. These pictures are depressing yet inspiring to me and other people around me. To know that anything is possible when you have the right combination of good nutrition, exercise and a NO EXCUSE attitude, anything is do-able!

Some progress photos


To today 7/5/2012

I find inspiration to continue doing what I do from the people that I help, and the people that ask me for advice. I don't mind giving advice as long as a person has a good sense of where they want to go and realistic expectations of how hard they are going to have to work to get to those REALISTIC GOALS! I set small milestones for myself and I reached for the stars and achieved all but the one I am working one now!

    Wow, awesome transformation! emoticon emoticon
I'm not overweight but wish to lose some body fat (particularly belly & arms) and tone up some more. Every once in a while I wonder if I'll ever get there.. but then seeing pics like yours totally motivate me again! Thank you for that! emoticon

    Love your progress. My DD who is 21 does the P90X workout (P90X2 now) and she has abs like you do. She's 5'9" and 145# She had a baby in April after she'd gained 30# during the pregnancy and she has all the weight back off after just 2 months even though she didn't nurse. She did exercise all through the pregnancy except for ab exercises.
