I did it! Before and after!
Thursday, June 29, 2017
Hello there! These two women pictured above are 2 totally different people-the same woman but different people. The one to the left was me at 299 lbs eight years ago. I couldn't move well. I was out of breath. I was unhealthy. I was only 30! The one to the right is me, my hubby and half of my kids. I am healthy, happy and full of energy! I run! I am 145 lbs today. I am 38 years old. I did 21 5ks last year! I am training to do my first mini marathon with my bestie on my 39th birthday on October 14! I am ready for the challenge! I have lost more than half of me! I cannot believe the transformation! I am like a caterpillar who has just become a beautiful butterfly! And I am PROUD of myself and my accomplishments. I have seen so many in the last 8 years but my favorite one is being a role model to my 4 kids. I hope they are learning healthy habits and that exercise should be part of a healthy lifestyle!
Also, this is proof that anyone can lose the weight with determination! I didn't mention that I had been denied for weight loss surgery 7 years ago. I was going to have bariatric surgery but they denied me because I lost a half pound too much on my own. Crazy! But I am so glad I had to work hard and dedicate myself to achieve it! I really am excited and I hope it inspires those who need it!
