Whose that girl? Oh its me (with pics)


Sunday, April 28, 2013

Today I was uploading some photos from my camera and came across some old photos. WOW I have changed so much. So I decided to write this blog to help motivate anyone who maybe struggling but also to celebrate how far I have come.

July 2011- the start of it all. The day I decided that I was FINALLY going to make a permanent change. My start weight was 232 and this was taken on my way to zumba class


I did zumba 3 days a week and ate within calorie range most days. By the end of the summer I was at 210


Kept pushing and adding some other workouts resulted in getting close to 202. 30 lbs gone by December 2011

I was determined to get to 199 by my birthday. Pushing through the Holidays was the hardest and yes I did gain weight. I was not going to let that stop me. My birthday 2/5/12 @ 198!

This is my lowest weight in over 10 years but why stop?? Keep going- New goal 190

Plus getting fit- 40 lbs gone and running!


Keep going 181

Here we go. Right now I am between 174-177. My goal is to stay between 172-177!

    Wow! WOW WEE!
You look GREAT.
You don't REALIZE how far a person has come or where they came from UNTIL you see A TIMELINE...and that's why they are SOOOO GREAT.
You look great.
Such a big smile. You look HAPPY with yourself...as you should be.
Keep up the good work.

    That's fantastic! Well done!

It seems impossible that I'll ever lose my excess weight, but reading your blog and seeing your photos shows that it IS possible...

    You have done a great job. I feel like I can relate to you because my start weight was also 232!!! I am now hovering at about 195 (which is about 15 lbs. higher than 6 months ago, but I am working on that...).

When I first started on Spark, I had a friend who started and 210, and her goal was to get to 165. Once she got there, she decided to keep going and managed to get down to 120 (she has not been active here for awhile, so I don't know where she is at now). Very proud that you have kept going. Looking forward to seeing even more success soon. emoticon
