Daily Success 2/11/2013 – I put everything into running my store and just let myself go


I put everything into running my store and just let myself go. I knew I was gaining weight, but told myself I didn’t have the time to do anything about it. So I was “muffin-topping” around town, squeezing into jeans, “sausaging” into shirts that didn’t fit, and just basically miserable.

After my husband and I went to Vegas, I wanted to share all the pictures we took—but when I looked at them, I was shocked. I couldn’t believe how much weight I had gained. When a friend joked about which one of us could lose the most weight, I Googled “Lose weight in 90 days”…and a YouTube video of Beachbody came up.

I said, ‘if she can lose that much weight, I can, too’ and picked P90X . That was the best thing I’ve ever done. I joined a Challenge Group, started logging my workouts every day to stay accountable, and got on Shakeology.

It was hard, but I kept at it. I had to. I was being accountable. The additional support I got kept me on track. And suddenly, I was amazed with myself. I’ve lost 23 lbs. and 32 inches. My “mom hips” disappeared and now that I drink Shakeology daily for breakfast, I have the energy I never had before to actually get things done.
