I have had a really busy and fun weekend! The Health Magazine photo shoot has come and gone. It was so much fun!! It still seems unreal to me that it actually happened. Having that experience on Friday made me really appreciate my weight loss journey. I can’t believe that just 6 or 7 years ago, I was in a totally different place and mindset. Back then, I felt so miserable, uncomfortable, & defeated… I never thought it would *really* be possible to reach my goals. I remember very clearly how I felt and I am so glad that I was able to implement small changes over time that have now made such a big difference in my life.
2006 to 2012!
Saturday, June 9th was my one year mark for actually reaching my goal of being UNDER 140 lbs! For the last year, I have been able to maintain my weight between 135 and 138 lbs! That still shocks me!!!
I love the TargetWeight app for keeping track of my weight loss! The balloons were such a fun surprise that day!
It really is a slow and steady process….
I put together this little video clip of the photo shoot! I’m so thankful to Torry, the boys, my mom and Carman for being there with me! Their support made me feel so much more comfortable!! I’m also grateful for all of the pictures and videos that they took for me!! It was definitely a day I will never forget!!
Torry was laughing at me because I didn’t want to wash my face!! I have never had my make-up done professionally before!!
I even went running the next morning with my make-up still on! Hahaha!!! *I know, I’m gross!*
I wanted to thank Misty from ThePerfectFace and Phoebe of PhoebeRourke.com for being so cool during the photo shoot! They were awesome and made me feel very comfortable. I had such a great time working with them!! Be sure to click on their sites and check them out! Also, I wanted to say THANK YOU to Niki at Lululemon for helping me pick out clothes!! And a huge THANKS to Ashley at Tootsies for providing me with even more awesome clothes! I wish I would have been able to wear all of the outfits that I brought! It was definitely fun to be able to try on so many awesome outfits this week!
Me and Misty!
Me and Phoebe!
Me and Ashley!
The article should be coming out in the October issue of Health Magazine… I’ll keep you posted if anything changes!
