Weight Loss Inspiration {Inspiring People}

There are so many inspiring people around me each day. I want to share their stories with you this year! Check in each week and get a dose of inspiration with a side of weigh loss. 
If you have been following my blog, you know that I'm on a healthier lifestyle journey. In April 2012 many factors came together at one time to make me jump off the couch and sign up at my local gym. 
When I started this journey I could barely walk 4 times around the walking track (18 times around is 1 mile). After that first day I told myself that I was going to walk off my weight and made it my goal to go farther and farther each time. Well 9 months later I have walked off over 60 pounds and 12 bags of clothes! I took the clothes to charity. I no longer need them.
For week #3 of my 52 weeks of Inspiration I am featuring this bag of clothes. I know that sounds crazy but I look at this picture when I'm feeling like I don't want to go to the gym. I know I can't stop walking or working out. These clothes are gone and they aren't coming back! 
My goal for 2013 is to get rid of 60 more pounds and I will do it. I have had help from my local gym, LifeKrazeBobHarper#mamavation and my newest inspiration- Jullian Michaels (more on her later!) Not only have these 4 things inspired me but so have local friends and various blogs and websites. I will keep featuring these each week for 2013. I hope you get inspired, too!
What inspires you? I'd really love to know! Feel free to leave a comment and/or a link below. I would LOVE it if you signed up for my brand new Newsletter! More recipes and inspiration coming soon!

Good job! That's an amazing accomplishment and an admirable goal.

I'm a little low on inspiration these days. I'm still looking for what will resonate with me.

Congratulations. I need to lose 60+ lbs, but I need knee replacement surgery before I can do that much walking. I am making an effort to get off the couch and accomplish more than I did last year. Thanks for the inspiration...I really need it!

Wow, way to go! Those pictures really are inspiring.

Thanks for your comment on my New Year's nail polish post, I'm glad you like it!
For some reason the comment disappeared right after approval, I'm not sure what happened, I'm sort of hoping it comes back and this is some sort of blogger hiccup, but I wanted to let you know I didn't ignore it!

Those bags of clothing are a good visual! Keep it up! I'm changing my lifestyle and eating habits and it's really one day at a time. I've gotten a better handle on what I am feeding my body on regular basis. I'm inspired to do things with my children without feeling old, out of breath and worn out. I feel great and I'm happy to see changes in how I look and feel. Thanks for being an inspiration and for sharing your story with our Beat the Bulge link party!
