My Wife's Story

Real Life, My Wife’s Story

Keep your goals

My wife’s story of her losing 122 lbs is a great example of someone who has the Self-Assurance to believe in themselves and the small and simple actions you can take that make a big impact. I believe her story is a great example of applying the Real Life Advantage and is a great follow-up to our last post for goal setting and living a quality life: “Its a New Year! and there is pressure to set goals”.


Weight Lose in Real Life

Here is her website and below with her permission is her story it in its entirety. I love her and I am grateful to have her. #GreatTeam!

My Story

I weighed in at 289 6 months after giving birth to my 3rd baby in 2005. It all started with my fear of getting diabetes. I was 21 years old and unhealthy and totally unfit. I embarked on my weight loss journey, with a family challenge of the biggest looser.

 Before at 289

After at 167

I started my journey with a simple 30 minutes of cardio 5 days a week. I was so driven, I never missed. I knew surgery wasn’t for me, or pills or weird diets. I WANTED TO DO IT ON MY OWN!!!!! I ate relatively healthy, but let’s be honest relatively healthy at that time was VERY healthy to my body. It was such a good feeling to see the numbers on the scale drop so quickly at the start. As I got to the point where I needed to up my workouts with extra help, I took some weight training classes and group fitness classes at the local gym.

I was able to loose a total of 122 pounds in about 2 years. I have maintained an 112-pound weight loss for 4 years!!!  I am now at the point in my journey with new goals that I would like to accomplish on this never ending ever changing adventure.
 One of my biggest regrets is not blogging or logging my previous weight loss accomplishments. Therefore, I invite you to follow me on my way to losing 25 pounds and training for a half marathon in August and a relay race in September.
This is my CRAZY I CAN DO IT face 🙂
