 Have any of you ever saved a dress that you have and hope that one day you'll fit into again? You know kind of like a motivator. Some use a bikini as their goal to look good in it by next summer. Well my weight loss motivator has always been a little black dress. Not just any dress. A dress I wore 13 years ago before I had 2 kids. It was always in the back of my closet and I always hoping that one day I will into it again. This past weekend was the day to "clean" out my closet. Donate clothes that are too "BIG" more me now. While rummaging through them I come across my llittle black dress. I was about to put it into the back and give up my dream of wearing it again but decieded to give it one last shot. You know the feeling when you put something on and it doesn't fit and you just feel defeated? Well that was the feeling I didn't want to feel. I waited and held my breathe as I zipped that zipper up. And Guess What?? It zipped all the way up. It FIT!! PERFECTLY.. I fit in my little black dress I once wore 13 years ago. Back in the closet it went for me to put it to good use one day. That just made my weekend. I hope everyone has a great weekend. How was your weekend.

I hope to everyone that is attending Fitcation12 that you all have a great time and be sure to take lots of pics. Wish I was going. Jealous and happy for everyone that is though. Have a great week!!!

At A Glance.. About A Year Later

One Year Before ~ August 2011


One Year Later ~ August 2012
 Weight loss this week ~ 0 lbs
Weight loss total ~ 39lbs.

“By changing nothing, nothing changes.” -Tony Robbins

Looking back at pictures makes you realize how far you have come. About a year ago to this day the picture on the left was taken at my company picnic at a baseball game. I weighed 168 lbs. and it shows. The picture on the right was taken today at my company picnic weighing 129 lbs. and that shows. After all the hard work and determination not to get back to where I was before I am glad to say that I can now say how far I have come and have yet to achieve. To this day I only have 9 more lbs. to go to final reach my goal weight and to be in the "normal" BMI range for my height. As 4ft. 11 inches the normal range is 18.5–24.9. I am still in the "overweight" range. But soon slow and surely I will get there. Have you taken a glance back and seen how far you've come a year before now?? It's just surprising and satisfying to see the difference a year makes. I have alot of people in my life to thank you for help me along the way and give me encouragement but especailly thankful for the mamavation sisterhood. Without this community I wouldn't be were I am today. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there every step of the way. I love you all! Hope everyone has a great week!

Goal for this week ~ To get back into the swing of things. Excercise at least 3 days this week.

What's your goal this week on excercising? Have you slacked off like I have? Pick yourself back up and get working. :)
