THIS IS MY NEW "BEFORE/DURING" PHOTO--
Weight Loss to date (Sept. 18, 2007 to Sept. 30, 2008):
-58.3 lbs and 31.5 inches -- Yay!-- (wt: 290.5 to 232.2).
Urban Active, the gym I belong to, asked for a photo for their files. They said they wanted to submit me to corporate to become a "poster child" for their training department because I was the top loser in their training department. I had this photo taken yesterday and placed it side-by-side with a photo taken 2 years ago... I also uploaded it onto my SparkPage to share with the SparkNation.
NOTE: Look at my hands, in the same position on my thighs in both photos... isn't it amazing how much closer together my hands appear in the new photo taken yesterday? The "before" photo was taken 2 yrs ago in an attempt to get on the "Biggest Loser" T.V. show... it took me another year to get my act together and determine to lose this weight on my own.
I've lost all of my weight with Spark People thanks to the BLC4 - 5 - 6 - 7 -- 12-week challenges*, 12-weeks at a time, since last September '07... YAY!!! The new challenge begins Tuesday, Oct. 7th- Dec. 30th-- just in time for the holidays. I actually LOST WEIGHT last holiday season thanks to this great motivational challenge.
So, I really desire to lose and want to remain accountable during these upcoming "eating" holidays! Accountability makes so much difference! I don't want to gain that holiday 10 lbs-- my goal is to maintain or lose this year as my gift to myself!
