One Year Progress Report

It has almost been one year since I decided I was NOT going to keep gaining weight and I was going to loose weight. I went to a movie at the same time last year as I did this year and have pictures on both days. This morning I looked at both pictures side by side and saw a huge difference. I wanted to share it with everyone but also wanted to have it on here to look at for encouragement to keep on going. 


In the past year I have lost 23 pounds. WOW In the first picture I was wearing size 14 jeans and in the second picture I am wearing size 10 jeans. I still have a ways to go but I feel so great to have done what I did this past year. I've done many different things as far as exercise and food. I've done different workout videos, treadmill running and outside running. I have been making very healthy smoothies each morning for breakfast. I have been doing Weight Watchers regularly since June. I am planning to stay on Weight Watchers the rest of my life, hoping to be a Lifetimer by this time next year. 

I showed my family the before and after pictures and they told me how proud they were of me and how I had done such a great job. WOW! That made my day. I had tears in my eyes as I looked at the difference. I feel so much better about myself. It has taken me a long time to do it but I have been making lifestyle changes each day. It is my hope that these will help me keep from gaining it back and help me loose the rest. 

Changing my life one day at a time.
