What 2012 has been like for me

Monday, December 31, 2012

I joined SP in October 2011 @ about 210 and by Jan of 2012, I was down to about 188 lbs. At the close of 2012, I now weigh 154 lbs!

At the beginning of 2012 I was wearing size 16 clothes or XLarge, now I wear size 8 or mediums! Even the bra sizes have dropped!!!

I have learnt to prepare meals that I love, I eat a filling breakfast every morning and pack lunch everyday! I also remember to exercise on a regular basis.


I ran my first 5K in March, ran many more since then and even ran a 10K. I managed to win a few awards in my age group and on two occasions won the top female, one of which got me a 6-month free membership to a wonderful local gym! I even got my hubby to run a couple of races with me.

I have received so many complements from friends, coworkers, and family about my transformation. I look back at some old pictures and can't believe my eyes either.

So I have to say overall 2012 has been a great success for me, thanks to SP and all the wonderful success stories of SP members that kept me motivated as well as encouragement from SP friends! I'm looking forward to a great 2013 as well, I still have about 15 more lbs that I would like to shed before I can get into maintenance mode. I also hope to run a half marathon or do a triathlon in 2013!
