During December 2013, I reached final goal weight after a year of religious tracking, staying in range, and exercising. It all paid off! I posted a blog a couple of weeks ago summarizing my journey in 2013: www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
Check it out if you haven’t seen it as it tells more about what that journey accomplished and more importantly how it worked.
Now I want to share some “before” and “after” pictures with you all. Most of you know that my husband and I set out on this journey together and that made it much easier for both of us. Together we changed our lives, one step at a time, encouraging each other and finding ways to make a healthier lifestyle fit.
The catalyst that made us say "enough is too much" and make a commitment to do something about our weight and our health was looking at pictures from a cruise that we took at the end of November 2012. So, take a look at our hall of shame......
Here's one pic of us from that trip:
And here is the worst one (I think) taken on the beach from the same trip:
Now, for some pictures that I’m happy to share…these are all from New Year's Eve 2013. In the first, we were setting out for a run before heading off for our evening festivities:
And the second one later that evening:
And finally I just like this one just because we look so happy…and we are!
Now, our challenge is to learn how to successfully maintain....I'm NEVER going back, and we WILL do this! 2014 will be even better than 2013!
