Weight Loss Journey ... The 12 Month Check in

I posted this status update on FB the other day and I thought I would share it here too.  I'm a big believer in testimony and hoping that I can maybe inspire others like I was to go on this journey of bettering myself.  I'm still about 23lbs from my goal of honeymoon weight.  I'm taking it with strides and praying I hit my goal before my birthday.  I so would love to have to have a tiny piece of cake (even if only a sliver it would be nice).  So Far I'm 6 months of no cheating of no sugar and very low carb diet.  Would be nice to be done in the next 2 1/2 months :).

So here is my before and NOW picture!  ONLY nice comments please, it's like standing naked in front of you all.  And please don't mind the hair and no make up now picture.  LOL

FB status:

God gave me a whisper today to reflect on where I am. Last year I was in a 3x tired all the time. Then one day I went for a walk just one foot in front of another. It hasn't been easy I've had times of jealously over others success. But here I am 1 yr later in a Large and walking 3 miles in 45 min, with a work out before. Sometimes we need that reflection that we may not b at goal but look were we are now. 

Have a great weekend!


  1. You look absolutely FABULOUS. Putting the two photos side by side you can really see the huge change. Congrats on all you've lost and here's hoping the last 23 comes off quickly and easily. You're in the home stretch, mama <3

  2. Whoooo Hoooo... look at you go! You look amazing!! I bet your Hubs thinks he has a new woman in the house.

  3. I have 150lbs. to lose to be at a healthy weight and it seems so unreachable, but you inspire me! You look great!

  4. What an amazing difference. I am so proud of you!

  5. WOW! The pics really do say it all! CONGRATS on all your hard work!

  6. Congrats to you!!! You have worked hard to get where you are!

  7. Absolutely fantastic work, you look better, feel better and have reduced health risks. I have lost half that in twelve months so I know how hard you have worked to get where you are. You are a star! xxx

  9. You should be very proud of your accomplishment and it IS an accomplishment. Your HEALTH is what is important not that number on a scale. Remember, muscle weighs more than fat and if you are building muscle you didn't have when you got married you might not weigh the same but you will look stronger and slimmer.

I wish I could go 20 minutes with out putting something in my mouth...most of the time "my foot" lol, but really. It takes courage and a strong will power to accomplish a goal like this! CONGRATULATIONS! YOU LOOK FANTASTIC! and I actually like the now hair! it's kind of wild and funky, just like you! Have a great weekend girl..You Rock! Big, Big sugar free hug, Lizy @
