Celebrate!

I've got huge news to share with you..... I've lost over 85 pounds as of today! 
(Technically, it's 85.3, but who's counting....)

It just feels unreal. When I started almost two and a half years ago, I simply thought I'd lose about 20 pounds and then that would be it. I accepted the fact that weight loss is extremely difficult for me and that I would be happy losing a little bit of weight. Somewhere along the way, I discovered that I could stay motivated and dedicated. 

I originally thought my goal would be 60 pounds. When I finally got there, I wanted to keep going. I wanted to lose weight for a thousand different reasons. My family....my job....my little boy.....

Over time, it became just about me. I wanted to do it for me. That is what pushed me to today. 

I did this to feel amazing....to feel strong....to see what my body can physically do...to be comfortable in my own skin....to jump in front of a camera instead of hiding behind it....to not worry about the extra weight causing more health problems....to feel energized and extremely happy....to set a goal and reach it. 

I don't do this for anyone but me. And that feels fabulous! 

My heart is still dedicated to helping others. I've met so many wonderful people who are working towards their weight loss goals. I love inspiring others to keep going! I am so fortunate to do that each and every day!
