two years blogaversary!

Sitting around on vacation one day
March 2 years ago...

Never thought I would be stranded  due to a freak snow storm  - 
with no junk food. Just LoCarb Induction type Foods - 
In a cute little cabin in the Grand Canyon!

When I came home, someone said "You just went through the hard part - 
Why don't you stick with it? Maybe lose some more weight! 
And you could start a blog!"

So I thought - "Sure - Why not!"

Helps me to get out of this!

Slowly - gradually - a year went by -
Dropping pounds and inches

Time after time...
Two years now!

Before and after!

Happy and working hard!
This very day - on the way to CrossFit!

Thanks for the constant love and support!
I never would have made it one day 
without you - my Blogging People!
And I have over 800 posts and pages!

Onward and downward!
Here's to many more happy, healthy years together!


  1. YOU.ARE.AMAZING!! Happy Blogaversary!! Thanks for all the fun posts; I know myself and many others look forward to them. One can always count on you to bring a smile to their face and a little levity to this often bleak journey. Keep doing what you're doing!

  2. Congrats on two years of posting!. The before and after pictures are great. Food looks really yummy too. :)

  3. You are an Internet Sensation! That is what I am calling now dieters that I have seen drastic results. They make them scrubs in the largest sizes. I have some baggy ones and going baggy on me is like dressing a horse.

  23. The picture of you in the ball cap with your head tilted to the side with a smile is why I started following your blog. You made me think of myself in that picture and made me think of my sister. I thought you looked like me and Patty (my sis) and that by reading your words you could help me. I think you have helped me more than you know. :) Happy blog-o-versary!
