I have had several NSV lately. When I sit back and think I am still pretty surprised that I am actually doing these things.

In the last week I did a workout at the gym that was 5k treadmill run ,12 miles on the stationary bike, 1 mile on the elliptical.

And today I bought several bikini's for my Mexico vacation in June!!They aren't the tiny ones but cute none the less. I have a picture of me the last time I wore a bikini and I was a 2 years old wearing swimmies on my arms! LOL

I haven't done anything amazing I just finally started to make myself and my health a priority .

You most certainly have done something amazing!!! 123 lbs AND 6 kids?!? In my books that makes you wonder woman!

Kudos to you for making your health a priority and agree completely with PP, your pic is fantastic :)

I know, right?! Who is this person indeed? And hey, you basically did a mini triathlon. :D

I'm in a very similar boat, doing things I never would have done before, and not even really so much weight related! Like I went to a coffee house by myself in a downtown area! That alone suggest alien inhabitation. I've mowed my lawn twice, for the first time in my entire life! I even weed whacked yesterday. I joined a hiking group...with people I don't know...and I'm going by myself...again in a downtown area! Start looking for aliens, people! I think they exist.

And I'm going bikini shopping this weekend so I can take it to the beach when I go to Florida! We should post pics. ;) I will if you will! :D

I agree, don't sell yourself short. Given where you started you have made such amazing strides toward health and happiness. That is no shabby workout, for a woman of ANY size or fitness, way to go, Nikki!

@Nikki
HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHING AMAZING?!?!? What?!?! Nah - nothing really...just changed your life...saved your life! Woo hoo on the bikinis - they may not be "little" but they're littler than than the swimsuits in my drawer right now!

@Eliana
I love all the new things you're doing. Joining a hiking group sounds like a lot of fun. I think I might have to try that one out myself! I will definitely keep my eyes out for those aliens!

Both of you enjoy your time at the beach! :beach:

Your humility is admirable, but you have done something AMAZING! You have obviously worked extremely hard to get where you are. I agree with the other posters, you are beautiful! Congratulations on all that you've accomplished.

Wooooo! You've done such a great job! Rockin' a bikini is going to be almost as fun as the trip to Mexico itself!

Congratulations!

Nikki - I beg to differ with you! You have accomplished so much in terms of your health and fitness. You have lost 123# and you are doing a number of regimes (running, bootcamp, etc, etc.) That is awesome! You ROCK!!!

The fact that you did that while taking care of your family of DH and 6 children is A-MAZING!!! You are determined, disciplined, organized and fearless. Not to mention inspiring.

Ya'll are all so sweet , thank you!

When I say I haven't done anything amazing I am meaning that in a humbling way. There are women out there who fight wars for our country , fight cancer and horrible diseases, survive unthinkable odds in often unbearable circumstances. Those women are my definition of AMAZING and I don't compare to that in my mind.

I am thrilled to be a active member of my own life. To feel healthy and fit is really a priceless gift .

Oh my goodness Eliana, posting a picture of me in the bikini would be scary. I bought them to wear on a vacation where I know no one other than my husband while relaxing on the beaches of Mexico . Posing as a swimsuit model here terrifies me but I will think it over. Like Biggest Loser this week some times you have to just face your fears. :)

I haven't actually seen myself in one yet, so I may just be backtracking myself. :rofl: We shall see. I go shopping tomorrow. It's going to be high waisted, I can tell you that!
