Working on a new healthier ME a year later!

So a year ago this coming March 12th, I decided it was time for me to literally get off my butt and be more active, start eating better and all in all just take care of myself!  I was tired of looking in the mirror and seeing how fat I was and feeling tired, lazy and overweight!  I wanted to be able to keep up with my kiddos!  I can now say that I can run up and down a huge sand dune at Silver Lake with the kids and keep up with them!  :)

You can go HERE to read my post from last year to see where I was at!

I am happy to say that almost a year later I am down about 50 pounds!  I have also given up Diet Coke, which is a huge deal! I sometimes drank 5 cans or more a day!  Yikes!  I only drink water now and honestly don't really miss it.

I became way more active than I ever have been in my life!  Walking 3 to 5 miles a day, going to a body sculpting class once a week and actually jogging!!  It feels awesome!

I have probably gained back about 10 pounds out of the 60 pounds I had lost as of last Fall.  Not to bad, but now it's time for me to get my butt back in gear and lose the rest of the weight and get toned!  It feels so good to be a size 12 now, instead of a size 18/20 in pants, but I am thinking that being a 8 would be great!!

Way to go! You look fantastic. I lost 36 pounds last year and hope to do the same this year.

You look absolutely amazing! You should be so proud of the changes you've made in your life!

Thanks Lindsay! It is a lot of work but so worth it! Got another nice walk/jog in today! So happy that Spring will be here soon so I can get back outdoors every day!
