So many things accomplished this summer:


Started running
Can run 5km in under 30mins.. 28:19 to be exact!!
stayed OP through out the summer (actually in maintenance now)
Lost 60 POUNDS!!!
Competed in and CONQUERED Tough Mudder~!!!!!!
Loving life and the new healthy lifestyle I have adopted!


My most exciting accomplishment this summer was doing the Tough Mudder that was THE most amazing and exhilarating thing I have done so far. It was PHENOMENAL!! and I can't wait to do it again next spring!!! :carrot:

I can't believe I am not only down 60pounds but lost over 40" and I have muscles and body definition!! I am shopping at places like Le Chateau and am buying size mediums and even smalls!! I am in a size 7 jean (use to be 22) my shirts are smalls (no longer xl)

I am running!! I was NEVER a runner and now I run 2-3x week!! I weight train 4x week. My friends use to ask me when I was going to stop/reach goal and now they know it's not a diet or quick gimmick or end in sight but an actual lifestyle change and permanent exercise routine. They re proud of me and some of them have even begun changing their lives for the better and it's great :D

Sorry I have been away so long. It has been a hectic, albeit, fun summer and early fall (going back to school , new job etc etc etc lol) Hope to stay logged on more often :D

Wow, that's a fabulous list of accomplishments, and very inspiring, too! It's great to hear such an enthusiastic endorsement of a lifestyle change.

Amazing and inspirational! My brother-in-law also did the tough mudder challenge up at whistler, what a feat! He and his wife are on the healthy eating diet which is extremely close to the IP one. It was nice at Thanksgiving to get together with mashed cauliflower and flourless pumpkin loaf, it sure helps when others are adopting the lifestyle too :-)
