In October 2014 I joined a weight loss challenge that went through the end of the year! I lost 20 pounds in the first challenge and 12 more pounds in two additional challenges. Due to "Life" I've fallen off track and have let one day turn into way to many! Needless to say, It is amazing how hard you work to get the weight off and how quickly it returns, this only enforcing that it has to be a lifestyle change for the rest of our lives! I'm starting another weight loss challenge as I do find then helpful with the accountability and having a formal weekly weigh in but I also have an awesome "weight loss buddy" who has been traveling this journey with me! If you don't have one, get one! She has been absolutely vital to any success that I've achieved! She is always there to encourage, motivate and support me! She doesn't let me beat myself up and is always cheering me on!! They say if you want something you should "claim it" so I'm claiming that 2016 is going to be my year to finally achieve my health and weight loss goals once and for all! I've proven that I can do it now I just have to do the hard work and do it!!
