12 Months Completed

ladyark Posts: 1,101 Member
I started this health quest in May of 2012. My goal was to lose 50 pounds. Little did i know how much i would come to love fitness and feeling better and pushing my body to do things i never thought i could. I wasent even sure i would stick with it long enough to lose 50 pounds. I started by making better food choices and watching how much i ate. Then i added cardio and then a few months after that weight training. When i passed the 50 lb mark i knew i couldnt and wouldnt stop there. I was having too much fun.

Through gallons of sweat, Many bottles of ibuprofin, 2 injuries, A handful of binge days, Many days of frustration but even More days of Satisfaction Perseverance when i wanted to quit, pushing myself thru the pain, never giving up hope, determination and LOTS of devotion and most of all BELIEVING I CAN......I have lost 80 pounds , went from a tight size 20 to a loose size 8 .

I cannot wait to see what the next 12 months has in store for me. Im thinking more weights, more muscles , cleaner eating and so much more to learn and do.

I hope i did this right to load the before and after pics. If not, they are my profile pic.

    I only started MFP in July of last year but I bought a scale exactly one year ago today and the numbers on it shocked me!! And now, 365 days later, I too have dropped 80 pounds using MFP! You have so much to be proud of.

    Kudos to you!

    Thank You!!! I honestly think using MFP and having a support system is the way to go. I dont think i would be this far along if i didnt.
