the difference between try and triumph is just a little "umph" - Do you have it??

I am so focused right now like a horse with blinders - all I can see is my GOAL!! 

I can't wait to wear a size 8..maybe less. I can't wait to weigh 150lbs. I can't wait to throw myself a "I lost 100lbs" party! I just can't wait!!

As always, when I get like this I look back on my old pictures. I look at pictures of my friends who have had weight loss success, celebrities who have actually put in the work (not had surgery),  I look at inspirational quotes that make me smile & cry and keep me pushing!

So I thought I would share some of my inspirations with you today!

Here are some of my friends:

And some celebs:

Of course my beloved J.Hud!

Jonah Hill - Eating right & Exercise!

Uhh that's just gross 50. You look dead. 

Anyway, as much as I am super proud of the celebs who have lost weight by hard work and dedication (which they are hard to find considering most have gone through surgery), I am even more proud of my sisters that I mentioned above. They are regular people with full time jobs, husbands, and kids just doing the damn thing!! You go ladies!! 

Some of my favorite quotes that keep me going:

  • Take care of your body, it's the only place you have to live. 
  • Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is to just always try one more time. - Thomas Edison 
  • Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels!
  • Where there is no struggle there is no strength - Oprah 
  • There are only two choices: Make progress or make excuses - Ellen Mikesell
  • The difference between "try" and "triumph" is just a little "umph" (Love that one!) 
  • You don't drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there.
I could go on forever. I love quotes!! :) 

My eyes are on the prize! Can't wait until I am here announcing to you that I am on the list up there with my Sisters In Sweat who have lost 100+ lbs!

Have a fabulous day!!

Cute! I'm really close to my 100 pounds lost. I still have further to go though. I have some friends that want to have a party for me when I hit that goal, but I'm just not really into it for some reason. I would rather have a huge blowout when I reach my goal!

I would tell them to wait until you reach your goal then! You're so close. That's awesome! 100lbs is my ultimate goal..(maybe like 103..if I wanna be exactly 150 lol) so I want to have a party. What is your ultimate goal Sarah?

Loved this post Krystle! I love before and afters and quotes too - i really need to get some umph though - it's been sadly lacking the last week or so, but I know I will eventually get there - and your post showed us that it's possible for us all!!

P.S - Can I come to your 100lbs lost party?!?!

"You don't drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there." I love that one.
WHEN I reach my goal I WILL have lost somewhere in the region of 50 pounds. I don't know what my ultimate goal is because I haven't been 'normal' weigh since I was in my early teens.

Congratulations! You look stunning. I plan on looking that great at your age. I will be making it this weekend :)
