Weight Watchers - A Success!

In March of 2010 I decided I wanted to make a change in my life. With the encouragement of my fantastic friend Ginger, I joined Weight Watchers. Now a year and a half later, I can truly call myself a success story! I was able to successfully lose, and keep off, 20lbs of unwanted 'life' that had been weighing me down. 

It's funny, the weight wasn't just physical, but psycological as well. Since reaching my goal weight almost exactly a year ago, I've run a half-marathon, jumped elbow first into climbing, and taken up a new sport with mixed-success (biking!). I also stopped watching TV - another life changing decision. Truly, I feel that I have 'found myself' - not to get all 'Holstee Manifesto' on you, but it really does feel good to do what you love and do it often.

So, without further ado, here are the embarassing yet motivating before and after pictures. A huge thank you again to all of you who supported me, and continue to support me, through this process...and frankly, through life! You rock.
