Today was our final WI for the BLC21. We took our final measurements and overall I lost 12 inches.
The challenge didn't officially start until the 16th of January but after I saw this picture taken at a Christmas brunch ... I had to do something!
This picture was truly eye opening and my friend had posted it on my Facebook page. I about cried when I saw it. I knew I had reached a new all time high but OMG this was the reality that I needed ... a visual of what others saw.
So on January 2nd I committed to a healthier lifestyle and made a goal to lose 120 pounds by my 54th birthday which is 7-1-2014. I have been able to get rid of 35 pounds since that date!
Here are some Before & After minus 35 pound pictures
They say a picture is worth a thousand words ... so not much more to say about them
I have learned a lot so far and I have learned that I CAN do this. I still have a long way to go and lots of areas to work on. One important thing I learned was that I couldn't have done this without Sparkpeople ... which to me is all you wonderful
's out there who just seem to know when I need a little encouragement or I need to be "brought back" into the fold of health.
I look forward to BLC 22 which starts June 5th! But in the meantime there is plenty of "work" to be done ...
