Default 100lbs gone and counting

Well, I have to say I feel very brave posting these photos and kind of scared to do so. I have lost 100lbs in the last 15 months. I have been living and working in Geoje Island, South Korea during this time. I attribute my weight loss so far to a variety of factors. Being in a country that does not fry all their food is a great advantage. But, in all seriousness, I attribute my weight loss so far to 3fc calorie counting chicks, biggest loser challenges, hard work, exercise, and determination. I am going home for the first time in a year and a half in just 43 days and I will be seeing my family and friends for the first time since I have been gone.

For all of those out there, whether you have a little weight to lose or a lot of weight my advice to you is just do something. You have to start somewhere. For me, it was adjusting my food choices and portion control. From there, I moved on to joining a gym I love and working out with a personal trainer 3 times a week.

1st picture- My sister's wedding December 2008
2nd picture- College picture
3rd picture- August 2009
4th and 5th picture- May 2010

I hope these pictures can bring a little inspiration to myself and to others. to my 3fc family!

Lost some of the weight before, I can do it again and keep it off this time.

Motivation- Think of what your mom (now an angel) would say to help motivate you to stay on track. Remember, God is good all the time and all the time God is good.
