Here's the photo that got me started. I finally said "NO, this is NOT ME! I do NOT want to live like this anymore." I was at least 230lbs, probably more, but that was the highest I saw on the scale and I think I gained more after that. I started by walking almost every day. Then I started eating healthier foods. I started my health blog in May of 2007 and weighed 209 at that point. Got down to 176 summer of 2009, back up to 199 in 2011, but am back down to 173 now. Hubby lost a lot, too!
And for something fun, here's a video from 2010 of my cat Nico helping me with my Ultimate Abs ball workout. :-)
