Weight Loss: Victory!

Your excuseAHHH!  10 Days left!!!  10 Days left!!!  Victory and the feeling of completion is in my grasp!!!!

Lately, some people have been getting grumpy with me and my weight loss victory.  Here’s what I have to say.  Read back through this blog.  Every Friday’s weight loss post.  There have been over 30!  I started this in 6/1/2012.  That’s when I realized I seriously had a problem.  I’ve put the work in.  I’ve done the time.  This has not been over night!  Only grumpiness you can have is with you.  I keep saying that it has to start with you.  You have to want a change.  You have to want to take the steps.  Then once you do…I can help.  Just ask and be ready for it.

  1. I actually want to see photos of your transformation! Very inspiring Michelle! I’ve been telling myself to do crunch time since I really gain weight as compared to my college days. I am a workout buff before I lost the discipline and it sucks 🙁
