It has been almost ten months since I made a commitment to myself and changed my whole way of life, in less than one year I lost almost 80 pounds and became a much healthier version of myself. When I decided to make the change and really put the effort in, I realized although it was hard work, it was not impossible, as I had always thought.
I had grown up quite slim and did not really gain weight until after I had my oldest daughter Andrea. I tried a few times over the years to lose the weight, usually I was semi successful with Weight Watchers but I never really put eating healthy with exercising together. Basically I would eat well, lose the weight, then go back to eating the way I did before and of course put the weight back on. What makes this different... I wanted this more than I have ever wanted it before in my life.
The next phase of my life will be mostly about maintaining, that will be a new challenge all on its own, I am up for this challenge though, I don't ever plan to give up on maintaining the best health I can for myself ... I changed when I learned to love myself where I was ... that is when I knew I would be successful, even if there were bumps in the road, which there have been many. I didn't let the bumps derail me from my goal.
