1/1/11 my New Year's resolution was to continue to lose some weight....never in my wildest dreams did I know where that one little goal would take me!!
|this is me Jan 16th 2011|
|Working it out at Turbo Kick!|
Most importantly, I learned that I am capable of WAY more than I ever gave myself credit for. I learned that when I dig deep, there is a whole different person waiting to explode out and shout to the world how awesome she is! I learned that if you want to change the things and the people around you, you must start with yourself. I learned that I have what it takes to INSPIRE others. I learned that I may have more purpose in this life than I thought I did.
|I learned that I love to sweat!! Something I could have sworn I hated.|
|and I decided that I am LOSING FOR GOOD!|
Man oh man, did I learn a lot this year about myself, about people, about life, and a little something about weight loss.
On top of all that stated above, I also entered and WON the Story of You contest on the Weight Watchers Facebook page, winning myself a $5,000 check!
And to end the year with a bang, I have NEWS!
Yesterday I received a phone call from the local newspaper (The Press of Atlantic City) asking to interview me for a column that will be printed tomorrow!!! My mom emailed them about my success a while back and they called me saying that they wanted to post a success story to help motivate all those making the New Year's Resolution to lose weight. I was so blown away and honored at the experience! SO, hopefully they will post it on their website too so I can share it with you all.
|this is the picture that I sent to them for the paper|
Lastly, I wanted to share with you my totals for the year!
- Since the beginning of January 2011 I have lost a total of 70.6lbs (My total to date is 92.8lbs!)
- Since March (which is when I started taking my measurements), I lost the following:
- 9.25" off my waist.
- 8.5" off my hips.
- 8" off my bust.
- 2.5" off my arms.
- 6" off my thighs.
- and dropped 4 dress sizes!
- Total: 34 inches all around since 3/5/11.
