Becoming your own Superhero (pictures)

Friday, September 07, 2012

Every healthy decision you make brings you closer to being your own Superhero. You don't need to be bitten by a radioactive spider, or zapped by an alien mutation device to change. You just need your own guts and will power.

It's okay to fall off the wagon once in a while. All the cool superheroes have times when they doubt and fall into bad habits. You just have to learn from your experiences and come back to your daily super hero work. Eat right, workout, and help some other people along the way. That's it.

That's all you need.

Back in February of this year, I realized that I had totally fallen off the wagon. I looked and felt awful. I'd regained almost everything I'd lost. I was a mess. So I picked myself up and worked my butt off.

This is what I look like now.

By myself. I'm awfully proud of how I look from behind.

I can wear spandex and look hot. I am strong, flexible and feeling much healthier. And I'm trying to help others along the way. I have less than 10 pounds to go to reach my goal, but I'm feeling pretty awesome now.

Are you ready to join my league of superheroes? Share your success. Be strong and believe in yourself. You know you can do it.


P.S. Yes, it's been a long time since I've posted here, and I'm sure that most of my Spark Friends have forgotten me. If you haven't, post on my blog or my page. I'd love to reconnect.
