Hi Amber! I've been "on the journey" for 6 years now. My original starting date was October 19th, 2009. I weighed 210 pounds, thought I should probably weigh around 175, and I was sick of looking and feeling the way that I did. For six months, over the fall and winter, I worked HARD. I had to learn how to exercise and relearn how to eat. But after those six months, I had somehow managed to lose over 70 pounds. It was insane. And awesome. After that, I had my second child and had to re-lose some weight. Not a big deal. I had the tools to do it. And that time around, I started to run and grew to LOVE it. I LOVE RUNNING! So crazy for me. I then had another kid. A year after he was born, I needed to lose a few pounds again. I did a Transformer last November to this May and lost about 15 pounds. Felt great again. Sadly, this summer I had a rough time and fell into some old habits (that wine and those buffets sound PRETTY familiar!). I now have about 20 pounds I would like to re-lose, and this Transformer should get me most of the way there.It won't be easy. It probably won't be a straight path. But I'm going to do it.And you totally can, too. Keep plugging away, and you will get there. Don't forget to take some starting pictures and measurements. I forgot to do that last time, and I really wished I had. Going to do mine today, if I can!Looking forward to getting to know you better....now that I've written you this novel. lol
