“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. :)

  7. Amazing to look back on your progress. Feels good doesn't it?

    I keep a photo of me when I was 25 pounds heavier on my phone as a reminder. Sometimes it motivates me not to eat crap. Other times not so much lol
