In fact, today I went clothes shopping with Colleen and fit into a size 12 jean. Last March I wore a size 20. (The grin on my face when the 12's easily zipped up was pretty darn big, I tell ya!).
Anyway, this was me last April -
This is me now -
Don't see it?? Really??
Okay, so it turns out there aren't alot of pictures of me where I'm not wearing 20 layers of clothing and an anorak. We are going to work on that.
For now you'll just have to take my word for it!!!
As for how I did it - well SWEAT was the secret. With the exception of my trip to England/South Africa this summer, you could count on both hands the number of days I didn't spend between an hour and a half and two hours working out.
I pedaled my way through 4 seasons of Dexter (awesome), 4 seasons of Northern Exposures (my favorite), and a whole bunch of movies.
In addition, thanks to my crazy Cartoonist friend, I got addicted to Gold's Gym Cardio Workout for WII. Great fun and a good workout!!
Since November working out has been hard to find time for, but by watching my diet (although I still will eat a little bit of whatever I want, but just a little) and thanks to dog yard chores and races, I've been able to continue to lose.
It has been over 25 years since I weighed what I currently weigh. I feel 100% better and more energetic then I have the last few years.
Looking better is just icing on the cake!!!
And my dogs?? Well they are thrilled to not be carrying that extra 'dog' around with them all the time now!!!
