This is a quick post just to keep everyone up-to-date. I’m down to 145 pounds and have lost 15 pounds since starting this. I have 5 pounds to go to reach my goal of losing 20 pounds! I’m pretty excited about that!
This has been all about perseverance and working through every single temptation to “yo-yo” and jump on some diet fad to lose it quickly. I’m taking things one day at time. It’s a lifestyle shift — mostly the shift for me is figuring out how to stay true to my health beliefs while living a busy life. This is possible. We can be healthy and busy!
More to come…stay tuned.

In January 2013 I realized I needed to do something to improve my health. I spent 2012 on maternity leave and often neglected taking care of my own health (sleepless nights and caring for a tiny human will do that!). Not to mention the many years before that where health was at the bottom of my list of priorities. Luckily, I discovered Lisa's 30 day green smoothie challenge. The recipes were incredible and a green smoothie drinker was born! But I didn't stop there. Starting each day in such a healthy way led me to consult with a naturopath (it would have been Lisa if we were in the same city), do an elimination diet, and discover that I have sensitivities to wheat and milk. I changed to a whole foods-based diet (most of the time) and took up running. In the span of 8.5 months I went from being tired and sluggish on the couch (literally - I could run for one minute at a time before having to walk) to having enough energy to run the Detroit International Half Marathon. I actually RAN the whole thing! And I lost almost 60lbs along the way! Thank you, Lisa, for being my catalyst. Your challenge kept me interested in a new way of living and saved me! I continue to drink a green smoothie every day for breakfast. What a wonderful way to start each day!
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
