Looking back...

Yesterday I took some time to go back to my old blogs and read them. My first blog (Where Is Tigerlilly?) was started in 2006. My goal was to get under 200 lbs... and I looked something like this.. 

I struggled at home with two kids under the age of two. I had just had two serious surgeries and was finally given the all clear to get moving. This blog lasted until 2008 where I ended up looking like this...

where I was weighing in at 193. Exactly where I am at today.

Then I started my second blog... The Next Chapter... which is when I stuck it into high gear and got down to 173 lbs.

So... reading my blogs helped me understand a couple of things. I had a lot of bad days. I started over at least 501 times. I tried everything... but succeeded losing the most weight with running. I love to juice and need to get back to doing that. But most of all... that I have lost this weight before... I know its possible.... I know that I can do it...

Today I am going to rethink my ways. Time to get a game plan...


  1. I think it's a great thing to be able to go back and read where you were mentally and physically. This journey never ends, even if you are lucky enough to see that magic goal number on the scales. Maintaining is even harder than the actual weight loss.
    You know where you have been, what you need to do and where you want to be.
    You aren't alone.

  2. Great positive attitude! Fabulous inspiration photos :)
