Success is upon me – today I celebrate my weight loss of 50 pounds! Yay! I look back to when it all officially began on September 15, 2009, and feel nothing but joy and pride to see how far I have come. Not only am I 50 pounds lighter – I am leaner, my muscles are becoming more defined, I have more energy, I love life, and I feel sexy and empowered.
I will never forget those that have helped me get to this point. I would love to say I did it all on my own however, that is far from the truth! Dr. Roizen has become not only my lifeline and weight loss coach, but also my mentor as I now give back and help others to reach their weight loss goals. Mike Clibbens, my personal trainer has pushed me beyond limits I never thought I would get passed. He has endured listening to me gripe and complain, scream and shout, and despite my endless dirty looks, he has stood by me and pushed me closer to my goals while helping me set new ones.
Next are my dear friends and support system; The Healthy Housewives of Oz – Toni Winston and Brooke Page. Together the 3 of us put our lives and journey out there for all America to see. The 3 of us have embarked on a journey that will forever bond us, we have been each other’s strength when we ourselves were weak and have challenged each other to try new things. I will forever hold these ladies dear.
Without a shadow of a doubt, all these people and many more have aided in my success and I am thankful to them all. Without them I would not be where I am today. I have come to realize that sometimes you just need to put yourself out there and ask for help. I am not saying you have to go on national TV to lose weight – however share your goals with others and lean on them to help you reach your goals. Trust me, teamwork makes the dream work!
