One year later

I can't believe that it has been one year since I took this before picture! I can remember taking this picture and thinking WOW, I need some help! I started Living the Life one year ago and it has made such a difference in my life. I am more physically fit, I feel healthy, and I have energy to do everything that I want to do and more.  I have lost 43 pounds in this last year. When I took the after picture I had lost 27 pounds in the first 12 weeks!  Over the rest of the year I lost the rest. After the first 12 weeks I stayed on doing
Phase 2, 3, and 4.  I love the food that I eat and have found that it is quite easy to eat healthy.

I bought a new swimsuit this spring, actually it was for my birthday, (yes, I am a year older and actually feel younger than I did a year ago!)

I do the workouts 4 to 5 times a week and I now have definition in my arms that I didn't think was possible a year ago.

I think I am going to stay on Living the Life!

My least favorite before photo was my back side, I can actually look at this one now.

Here is a sampling of all of the yummy food that I get to eat every day. (Doesn't this food look delicious!)I eat 5 to 6 meals a day and I can definitely see that my metabolism has increased.  If you would be interested in this program just click here.  If you want to try the 7 day free challenge click here, and you can start Living the Life too!
