My story in three word: Dream, Believe & Execute
In the beginning, these were the three words I say to myself when times were tough, when I don’t want to do it or when it hurt. I wear this phrase today on my RoadID bracelet and is my guidance:
1.) When I don’t follow it and I fail,
2.) When I put the effort in and achieve my goal.
I started my weight loss in June 2010 and hit 102 lbs. in April 2011. I lost my first 50 lbs. in 4 months (~18 weeks) and the last 50 in 6 months. My original BMI was a 38 and now I’m at 22. My waist was a 40″ and down to a 28″ waist.
