Sorry, couldn't help myself with the drama bit. I'm being an attention monger and it seemed like an interesting title.
Hey, I did it today. I beat the dismal odds for New Years Resolution people.
I've lost 50.4% of myself!
14 months ago - when I started it was like looking up at an impossible climb, a freaking scary mountain. How could I do that? How long could I go for? Would I make it? I shook those doubts off and started - I KNEW I could do it. And I did. I am.
Wow. Just wow. 14 months, 148.6 pounds GONE
. That's more than I weigh right now! Goodness gracious me!
Thanks guys, I did it with your help!
I feel like I'm giving an awards acceptance speech, so I'll also thank:
PUMPING HEAVY IRON (boo-ya!), counting calories (brilliant), Sams Club (surprisingly, it's my source for healthy eats by the bulk - I eat a TON), my bike, my city's bike trails, my personal trainer, my people and every person on here who inspired me.
I feel like queen of the world today!
To top it off, the big boy lifters at one of my gyms yesterday were interviewing my best friend about my routine, supplements and diet. Those big dudes wanted my secrets - said I'm looking amazing. She talked to them for an hour, said they wouldn't leave her alone to her elliptical, they kept going on and on about my physique, that I'm built and I must have secrets. They won't ask me though.
From 295 pounds to the big boys' hero. Hells yeah.
It's amazing, this whole process. I hope yours is rocking your socks as much as mine does.
Go get 'em!
