  • Hi 3FC Friends!

    Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of my new, healthy life! I am proud to report that I have lost 114 pounds to date! I have started a new blog to share my journey. You are welcome to check it out HERE.

    Many people ask "How did you do it?". In a nutshell I started eating healthy and exercising. Simple process...not always easy...but worth every moment!!! Last Aug 1 I stepped into a gym on their opening day and the first day of the rest of my life. I hired a personal trainer and started counting calories. I strength train 3x per week and I do cardio 6-7 days a week. I eat about 1,800 calories per day and log everything on The Daily Plate. It has been as much of an emotional journey as a physical one.

    I come to 3FC on a daily basis for support, friendship and motivation! I have developed a great friendship with my personal trainer! I learned which friend I could really reach out to for support! I have 2 small children and a husband who's not really interested in getting healthy. I had to find a way to surround myself with positive influences. Ultimately I only have control over me! That has been a big part of my thought process.

    Thank you all for being a part of this journey with me. You all inpire me in so many ways and I hope that I can provide some inspiration back to you!

    I will talk in more detail about my journey on my blog and will eventually write a much longer "goal" story here.

    For now I'll leave you with some pictures of my journey....

  • Wow you are such an inspiration. this September I think 6th will be my one year date and I haven't lost that much, I had a couple setbacks that lasted a few months each, a 1.5 month stall and was just lazy a good bit of it. I"m hoping to get CLOSE to a 50 lb loss by then. maybe 45. I think I've finally learned my lesson though! Thanks for the motivation/inspiration girly girl!

  • Barb...

    Do you know you've done the impossible? You know it's impossible to lose that much weight that fast without surgery, right? And even then it's iffy. IT'S TOTALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO DO WHAT YOU'VE DONE BUT YOU DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How do we keep doing all these impossible things?!?! Could it be we've had a PERMANENT SHIFT IN OUR LIVES????? Are we different people now?? Is that possible????

    In two weeks I get to post my impossible story...I can't wait. You don't need me to tell you how awesome you are, you already know that. You are AWESOME because you have DONE THE IMPOSSIBLE. And you did it with flair, not everyone can say that!!!!!
  • You look absolutely wonderful and it must feel sooooo good! Congrats to you! You're an inspiration!
