Do you ever have one of those days when you think you look pretty good and then you see yourself in a picture and you're like, "What?!" I do ALL THE TIME! Well, here is the picture that got me to make some serious changes -
Now, I will say that I had recently had a baby. (Well - who are we kidding, she was almost a year!) And I'm sure the angle of the camera was bad, right? ;) Anyway, whatever it was - I didn't like it! I printed this picture out and put it up by my bed-side table so I could look at it every morning when my alarm went off. I lost at least 15 lbs in 5 months. I can't remember because I didn't ever do before pics and measurements.
Here is me in November of 2011.
Then I felt pretty good, so I relaxed again all winter. Then in the spring of 2012 it started all over with me trying to lose weight before summer so I could fit into all my clothes. When I would get down a few pounds, I would relax again until winter came and I gained it all back. Are you seeing a pattern here??
Starting in March 2013, I joined a Challenge Group so that I would have motivation and accountability to actually stick with it and change my lifestyle. I loved the set up so much that I even became a coach! This way I HAVE to stick to it and stop hibernating over the winter! :)
I seriously love challenge groups, it is sooo much better than trying to do something on your own!
So far, I am down 10 lbs and 8 inches! I say 'so far' because I still want to lose more body fat.
This picture was taken last night. (About 20 pounds difference!) I am still going to be posting my actual before and after pictures, but I still have a few days left of my 90 day challenge. :)
I made a goal that I would complete 2 more Beachbody programs before the end of the year. One of the programs I want to do is Shaun T's new Focus T25 which comes out sometime this month!
If you would like to be in one of my challenge groups - feel free to email me - email@example.com. You can also message me on facebook or comment below. I would love to have new friends join me as I continue to remodel my body! :)
