13 pounds.. just 13 pounds!




Thank you so much for the overwhelming response to the sale!!  I'm really grateful right now! And not only because of the sale, but also because I'm re-taking control of my life.  The Holidays made a dent, or better said, I made a mess during the Holidays to my diet and my life... I get off the train very easily.  But now I'm following my diet again, and I joined the gym and I'm 13 pounds away of my goal!
And you know what? It feels great being in control.  Every time that I want to slip off and eat something I'm not supposed to or skip the gym I remind myself of certain things that are a great deal to me. To name a few:
  • I can sit on the floor and stand up easily to play with my children.
  • I can go shopping now and look for what I like, not what fits.
  • All my shoes are loose... and this year I used below the knee boots!!!
  • I'm not dying for lack of oxygen at the gym... or when I walk fast or a lot.
  • I can do a lot more stuff and still have energy at night, before I used to feel tired all the time.
  • My rings are not longer tight.
  • Heat doesn't affect me as much (although cold does!)
  • And the best one? My overall mood is a lot happier than before!
So next time that I'm tempted to grab a cookie instead of a healthy snack, I will remind myself of all this and how good it feels to go in life not carrying extra weight with me :)

congratulations on the weight loss! I'm currently struggling and re-signed with my old trainer. I'm hoping to meet my goal by summer. I hate bending at the waist and feeling pain from the pants being too tight! lol

That's great Danita. Keep up the good work. I don't think a lot of people really understand how important it is to take care of themselves. We all only have one body, we need to nurture it more. Thanks for sharing your journey.
