Happy New Year!!! (A two-year comparison)

What would a new-year's day be without a couple of comparison shots!!?! :D Today I'm reflecting on the progress I've made over the last 2 years and setting goals for 2013. 

If you follow my blog regularly you know that I'm currently UP 10lbs MORE than when I started with MFP two years ago. Here is the difference...

 

 

Wow. I didn't realize the difference myself until I saw these images side-by-side. I'm thrilled with my progress and I'm gearing up for the "cut" that is soon to come. My goal this year... hit the stage again in July looking better than I did last year. If I do that I'll be thrilled. 

If you are just getting started on your journey to "fitness" (whatever your goals may be) I encourage you to stay the course and remember to be patient. Getting where you want to be takes time. Happy New Year and happy lifting everyone!!!

That is pretty amazing Steph! I have been on and off the wagon on my fitness journey, and I am hoping to reach my goals this year, especially since we are hoping to start a family soon. Thanks for the motivation. Where is your competition? We are coming home for a visit this summer, and I wanted to see if we would be around when you compete.

I just went through all of your archives. Amazing!! Although I would not want to compete in a fitness competition, your transformation has inspired me enough to at least stay on some type of weight program.
