In Two Years

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Two years ago today was the first day of the rest of my life. I am in awe of how time has flown and of how far I've come.

2003, Show: Dorothy and The Wizard of Oz, Role: Glinda the Good

God has been so good to me and I've completely changed my life for the better. I never thought I'd get this far, accomplish so much and be so much healthier.

2007, Show: Beauty and The Beast, Role: Mrs. Potts

I thought about writing a long drawn out blog talking about my journey, but you know what? I'd rather not. I'd rather let my journey speak for itself in how I continue on with it.

January 2011, Show: Godspell, Role: Joanne - This was the year that I decided to do something about my weight. I couldn't do half that I wanted to do on stage, and my weight was slowing me down.

I want to be stronger, fitter. I want to continue to be successful. I want to continue to thrive. I may not be where I want to be right now, but I'd rather be here than where I was two years ago.

Summer 2011, Show: Once on This Island, Role: Mama Euralie - I had lost around 45lbs at this point.

Down 6 Dress Sizes.
100lbs Lost

January 2012, Show: Hairspray, Role: Motormouth Maybelle - I had lost around 65lbs or so here.

Official SparkPeople Success Story
Official SparkPeople Motivator
Featured In The Huffington Post for my Weight Loss

February 2012, Show: The Color Purple, Role: Jarene (Church Lady) - 70lbs or so.

First 5k in 2013
No Longer Considered Morbidly Obese

Fall 2012, Ovation Awards Ceremony, Role: Winner of Musical of the Year Award - 90lbs or so. I felt so beautiful on this night and everytime I think about it, it makes me smile.

I've accomplished SO DANG MUCH in two years.
I wonder what I'll do in the next two?

Spring 2013, Show: In The Next Room, Role: Elizabeth - 100lbs Lost

Viva La Diva!

    Your pictures do speak for themselves. I sure wish I could see one of your shows. Are any of your performances on YouTube?

  Two years can make such a difference when we apply ourselves to do and know that we can! Youíre braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. ~ Keep up the good work! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
