365 Days Later With a Load Of Pics

Today one year ago I started this wonderful journey of getting fit. I had doubts in my mind that I could do it. I had struggled with my weight for so long that I never imagined that I could accomplished what I have accomplished by eating right and exercising. I had tried so many diet pills and so forth and I always failed. I had such a negative mind and I was filled with excuses. This journey has helped me be a better person inside and out. I have so much confidence in me. I now know that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to with determination and discipline. I feel blessed that I found Myfitnesspal it has changed my life for the better. One of the most motivating things that helped me so much was reading the success stories that are posted here. I promised myself that in a year I will write my own success story. I started by logging every single thing that I put in my mouth, I made sure that I didn't go over my calories. I started to do Zumba 3 times a week and I did 30 Day Shred 6 times a week for a little over a month. After that I started to do Turbo Fire and I also was doing C25K on the treadmill and sometimes even outside. I did this at the beginning of my journey and I lost close to 30 pounds in 5 months. Then I started a new job in June and my journey got complicated, I was still doing Zumba 3 times a week but I wasn't eating as healthy as I should. I didn't give up on my journey I just slowed down my progress. Since I haven't been doing things like I should I wasn't going to post my success story but one day I told myself I should post my success story even though I'm not finished perhaps I can motivate others and I can let them know that with dedication and motivation anything is possible. I also believe that by me posting my story it would help me get motivated and get more motivating friends that can help me get to the finish line. In my mind I knew and I still know that I have a race to finish and I would get there this year. So far I had lost 43 pounds and I'm planning on losing another 40 pounds this year. Today I started Hip Hop Abs and I feel excited for the new year. I have tons of pictures to show you guys I hope you guys don't mind! =)

    I'm going to tell you the same thing I am trying to teach myself. Don't beat yourself up over what you haven't yet accomplished, praise yourself for what you have.

    Glad you posted your story. You ARE a success!!
  • You are looking great :D Keep it up!
