Before and Afters!

This is the cliff notes version.  For a more detailed post, click here.

I hesitate to use the word “after” at this point in time because I’m not yet at my goal, but you can get the picture!  I’ve been on a rollercoaster with my scale most of my life!  The weight sure does creep on quite easily but getting it off has always proven to be a challenge–not impossible but not very easy! 

Pete and I with Peter when he was a few days old

Then I started walking and following Weight-Watchers…lost about 30 lbs!

only to gain it right back with baby #2!

Then I lost about 20 lbs and I thought I looked okay.  Til I saw this picture.  This really was the catalyst for me!

I immediately started to make some changes!!  I started following the Abs Diet and walking with my kids in the double stroller.  I worked my way up to running and by the end of summer 2009 I could run 3 miles with them.  I also started strength training with Jari Love dvds and the weight started coming off!  In November 2009 I started p90x and I did p90x off and on, along with running (now up to 8 miles!) until September 2010. 

I hope to be able to add my true “after” pic sometime in the next six months…but until then…this is my inspiration!! 

***absolutely photo-shopped!!!***
