One Year in Transformation!
It's been a crazy year in transformation for me. When I went to my first WW meeting (this round, ha) a year ago this week I thought I'd go-- be there a few months, lose my weight and be on my jolly way. I had no idea what was in store for me or that a year later I'd only be half way to my weight loss goal. But I've also learned it's not all about THAT number. That number doesn't define me. It's about the process, the journey... The people I've met along the way who've inspired me and kept me going when I wanted to quit. I've made friends for life on this journey. I feel incredible and more comfortable in my own skin. And more than anything... I feel like me again. I proved to myself I could do several things I never thought I'd be able to do. I had hard days (and hard months to be honest)... I still do, I'm human- but along the way I never lost sight of my "why"-- to be a healthier momma for my two boys and healthier wife for my husband. For Hudson and Rhett to have a mom who isn't lazy and who can run and play with them. And to plant in them from a young age a desire to eat healthy and exercise. So for me it's not about any one company or any one program. It's been about a year in my life where I made a choice and I turned it all around. I was heading down a road to major obesity and my genetics point to high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. And now I'm running away from all that as fast as I can. So my year one is done-- year two, bring it on!!!
