The fat lady has sung!

I can't beleive that I'm done. It's finished....unbeleivable!!!! When I started on my journey on January 15th this day seemed lightyears away, and it has been a tough road. Days of hunger, fatigue, aches and pains, but overall it's been fantastic. I feel better than I have ever felt before in my life, and I know it's because I've worked hard for it. All my sacrifices, all my time and all my determination has given me results that I have yearned for for so long, I feel good, I look good and I'm motivated to keep going, staying healthy and fit forever! This truly is only the beginning, but a great one that have taught me so much about myself, and my habits, and about what works and what definitly doesn't work, and my biggest lesson has been this one:

Where there's a will, there's a way! Just beleive that you can do it, you can change and jump in with all you've got!

My last assignement of the PCP was to go back to Week 1 and do the workout I did back then. I was truly surprised, wow, was that really all i did in the beginning. I didn't feel like I had done anything when I was finished, and it took me about 5 minutes to complete. Back in Week 1 I felt it was hard and I remember I dreaded what was ahead of me. So it really does work. I got stronger, tougher and fitter through it all, and I really feel like I'm at my peak...at least close to it. I beleive we can always strive to be better, you never reach the goal, not completely, but I sure feel like Iron Woman right now, and I'm proud of what I have achieved. It felt impossible at one point, but now I'm here. It's finished...I can't beleive it. 3 months has passed, and my confidence is better than ever...move aside world here I come!!!!!

So as I sign off for the last time it's with my two least favorite exercises: The dips and the Push Ups, sorry guys, I just never fell in love with you!!!!!

As the saying goes: It's not over til the fat lady sings, well she just sang: Sayonara my friends!

YAY! You did it! You are a survivor and a champ. And keep after those push-ups, the hardest stuff are the ones that really change our body the most!
