Happy New Year!
I started 2010 anxious, to say the least. My husband was entering school for the first time; we decided to take the government up on their re-training program. We were going to have to move out of the home we had lived in for 5 years. I was miserable in my body. I was tired, weak, unhealthy and a mess. I hated my physical body, but didn't think I had what it took to change. By March I was working 3 jobs and living off of fast food and caffeinated sodas. We moved the first weekend in May and moved a family of 3 in with us. It was a hectic, chaotic and stressful Spring. By the 4th of July I was exhausted and felt like I was going to have a nervous break down. I wasn't handling anything well, emotionally. My body and my spirit were sick and TIRED!
July 12, 2010 I decided to change my life. I didn't know what I was in for, I just knew something had to change. I signed up with www.jillianmichaels.com and embarked on the journey of a life time. I have learned so much about myself this past 5 1/2 months. I learned that I am strong, disciplined, determined, smart, stubborn (or so I've been told), capable, passionate, confident, leader, athlete and so much more. I'm learning what it feels like to have a good self esteem. (This is something I haven't had before.)
I started out 302.5 lbs. I ended 2010 at 233.5 lbs. I changed my body by 69 lbs and my life in 5 1/2 months. I'm so excited to see what the next 6 months hold.
In 2011 I will experience, for the first time as an adult, being at a healthy weight. I will be a size 8. I will run in my first half marathon on May 1st. I will run in my first marathon in October. I will ride an amusement park ride this summer. (I haven't done this since I was a kid because I've been too big as an adult.) I will continue to gain confidence. I will inspire. I will succeed.
2011 you are going to be a GREAT year!
