Here is my first day working out with MK and Nicky in September 2013 and Now November 2014. I truly believe inches lost
Again, Sept. 2013 and Nov. 2014. I am not sure If I still have that purple shirt, but the blue one is the same size. Mostly I notice that I now have Hammer Time pants!!
Wow, I can’t believe I finally did it! I have officially lost 100 lbs from my highest weight. Yay! Insert happy dance here! I have been trying so hard to reach this goal. I wanted it so much and fought through the ups and downs to achieve it. My highest weight was 420 and I am now 319. At one point I couldn’t even fit into a 3 or 4x at a department store. I now can shop at regular department stores plus size section And I am in a 2x top and a 24\26 pants. Major difference from a 5x at Catherine’s and a 38 plus pant (I think at one point I was a 44…but not sure as I didn’t look for it was to depressing).
So much has happened in the last 6 months (ya I know I suck at posting). I am still doing Crossfit and loving it. I now workout 6 plus days a week with a mixture of Wreck City (MKristo and Nicky’s gym) and Crossfit Devotion in Covington. I have worked out with MK for so long it was an adjustment to not be with him 4 days a week. He had started training at Crossfit Devotion right before our normal time and he felt like I was ready to move to a class session. I still train with him 2 days at Devotion so he is stuck with me 🙂 I train with Nicky on Friday’s here we work on form and PR’s (personal records) and she is my accountability. I weigh in, take pictures and measurements to keep on track. If I didn’t I probably wouldn’t stick to the plan as well. I have learned I am one of those people who need to be held accountable, to have checks and balances and thrive on competition\challenges.
I can not express my gratefulness towards these 2 friends\trainers, I would not be where I am today without them. It brings tears to my eyes knowing they were there for me, supporting me, cheering me on, pushing me to my limits and just telling me I can do it when I thought I couldn’t. I love you guys so much. Thank you!!
Thank you to Crossfit Devotion for being so welcoming! I was so nervous to start in a group setting as I hate coming in last. But I have to say, when your last…everyone who has finished…starts cheering you on. So you push harder to finish. Today when MK shouted I reached my 100 everyone burst out in cheers! I walked away in tears of appreciation! Thank you Crossfit family, you are all so amazing and the coaches are top notch!
Last Thank you goes to all my friends and family (FB friends too:)) You have cheered me on, checked on me when I haven’t posted my status on my weight, gave such sweet and supportive comments. I truly appreciate it so much! And a special shout out to my partner in work out crime-Christie Nelson, you challenge me and encourage me to never give up! I so appreciate you!
My next goal is to get under 300! So 299 here I come!
I still have at least another 100 + to go. So here is to another next year of success! Now….What to do to celebrate???!!!
