**This is posted on my Mission: Possible blog, but I wanted to post it here too**
This coming Sunday marks my 2 year anniversary since I strapped on my official Weight Loss helmet and embarked on the ride of my life! It was a ride I will never forget ~ and quite honestly, a ride I never really thought I would take.
But I did.
And words seriously can not express the feelings that I went through ~ and still go through ~ when I look back at my journey. I won't get into all of that now, though. That's for another day.
Now is a post to celebrate that it's been 2 years since I started...and I will spend the rest of my life completing the journey, as it is something that I need to consistently work at every single day. But I think I have done really well, since I have pretty much been at my goal weight (give or take 5 pounds) for almost an entire year already! That goes to show that no matter how hard maintaining is, I have found out how to do it if I have already lasted a year.
This Before picture was taken June 2009 at my heaviest weight of 211 pounds. And the After picture was taken July 2010 at 147 pounds (which is 5 pounds heavier than what I am currently sitting at). Click on the picture to enlarge it.
Anyway, the point of this post in celebration of the 2 year mark is to put out the first 'ask andi' segment on this blog. It might be the first and last one depending on how it goes, but I wanted to throw it out there and see what happened. I get asked (in person and via email) A LOT of questions about my journey. Specific questions that I might not have answered in my personal how-to post that I have previously written. A lot of times the questions asked are similar, so I repeat myself a lot. Which is fine, but I figured I could maybe kill a few birds with one stone this way.
So ~ if you have a question about what I did to lose my 70 pounds, or anything regarding weight loss, feel free to ask it here! I don't pretend to be an expert, but I can tell you what worked for me personally. Either comment on this post or send me an email if you want it to be anonymous to firstname.lastname@example.org . The plan is to post the Q&A's on my regular Friday post, since that will technically be 2 years of Fridays since I began the journey!
