In March 2015 I made the decision that I was going to do everything I could for the next year to get healthy.
It snowed at the end of February. When we were outside playing with Emma I felt tired just bending down to pick up snow.
I was uncomfortable in my own body. Later that week this was in my news feed.
She had a son around Emma's age and playing with her son and being able to go to Disney and ride the rides with him was her motivation. Seeing her transformation made me think "I CAN DO THIS!" This was a year for her. If she can transform like this in a year, what can I do? I decided it was worth it to see. So I took before pictures.
SO here is my ONE YEAR before and after
And my 2012 before at my highest all time weight- when I started this blog.
It has been an absolutely amazing journey. I found Whole30 and realized that when I eat the right food I enjoy eating and never feel deprived, all while losing weight.
I've completed 5 races this year.
March - it took me 55 minutes
May - Color Run took 46 minutes
November - 40:08
January - 38:04
February - ??? Don't have a time. I am guessing still around 38 though
Gone from a size 22 to a size 12/10 and a XXL to a L/M
I have energy and stamina to go outside and play with my child. I feel comfortable in my own body. The most basic things like tying shoes and shaving don't make me tired. I have made a huge difference in my health and quality of life and I am 100% sure it is because of Whole30 and running.
