But before revealing the results, here's a photo recap of some of my weight loss milestones over the past year.
|Backstory: This was December 2006, about 5 months before I was diagnosed with Insulin Resistance. I weighed 221 lbs.|
|Jan. 2011 The day I came up with The Redbook Experiment. Before shot. UGLY shot. The date on the photo is obviously very wrong.|
|End of Jan. week 1: Results = -2 lbs! I'm already looking better after 1 week of the Redbook Experiment.|
|March 2011. Lost 9 lbs in 2 months and 1 week. =)|
|REDBOOK featured me in their May issue 2011. Thanks, RB.|
|First time I could fit into size 10 jeans. March 2011|
|My first official 5K! Meaning it wasn't on my treadmill or a small neighborhood race. My friend Trevor beat me though. Hence my sad face.|
|The first time I looked at a photo of myself and didn't realize that hot chic was me.|
|Having to give up my favorite skirt, b/c I now wear a size 8.|
|Hiking the BIGFOOT 5K in Ogden in Sept. 2011|
|Fitting back into my 11th grade (very wrinkly) prom dress this fall.|
|Running the Salem Witch 5K Run this Halloween.|
|Reuniting with the doctor who, 5 years ago, saved my life with one simple diagnosis. (Also, I'm wearing my size 8 jeans here.)|
Love you guys, and thanks for all your support. I couldn't have been motivated enough to do this without you. And a special shout out to REDBOOK for getting my rear in gear 12 months ago.
Watch out for the results shot!
