One year ago January 5th 2021 I decided I was going to change. I was going to stop with the excuses and take my health and life back! I had every excuse in the book...I'm in my 40's this is just how it is...I'm to busy taking care of my husband and kids....I don't have time for exercise with a full time job..etc etc...I literally had every excuse. Well i took it back! This past year while working full time, while taking care of my family i found the time I needed for me! I lost 60 pounds of fat, but have gained a few pounds back of muscle! I love the muscles I'm gaining so that is my new goal for this year. To keep tracking my diet and keep building muscle! jua1yoknk8my.jpg

    Your dedication has paid off. I agree, your smile says everything.

    It is so hard to “find the time”. I find I have to create a schedule, actually “make time” workouts, menu plan and cook or it may or may not happen.

    You are an inspiration.

    Oh WOW!! Just WOW! My shape right now is similar to your BEFORE picture. I can see I might just be able to tone up to your AFTER picture. You've just motivated me to keep going! It's slow going for me. Only 5 pounds a month, or 6 weeks, depending on the Holiday or Celebrations going on.

    It's a marathon to grow and learn from! Dont thinking it as a sprint. You can do it, keep moving and keep going!!!

    You look amazing! I am so inspired by you:) I’ll be 40 later this year and I want to lose 33lbs and be in the best shape of my adult life when I hit this milestone bday! I, too, work and have a husband and kids and it’s so easy to have all the excuses but I’m going to follow your lead and really do this thing!!

    Thank you for sharing!! I can identify with your life stage and before picture. You look strong and HAPPY. You earned that smile. I am planning to wear that same smile on my 50th birthday this summer. I needed a little pep today.
