Transformation Tuesday

August 26, 2014 in Uncategorized

I always see these “Transformation Tuesday” posts floating around and thought I would add mine.

These were taken about 5 years apart. As my Nana used to always say—Health Is Wealth!

I may be 5 years older but I feel 5x better!

Still working on it but I’ll get there!

Losing weight is hard but worth it.

  (A good bottle of hair dye doesn’t hurt either lol)




I hope you are all doing well!

Hi Holly! It still amazes me on how successful you’ve been! I really enjoyed our time together at Crossfit! You know how much I’ve struggled… I’m at the end of a 30 day challenge at our box. It forced me to try the Whole30 plan. Now that I’m on day 27, I feel like my new miracle has happened. I read the book “It Starts With Food” and it has transformed me and my cravings in ways I could never dream. (I blogged about it on Knowing that you and I have the same sugar struggle… I thought you might find it interesting that my new trial of of Whole30 which eliminated even artificial sweeteners has taken away my struggle. I can’t believe I’m the same person. I haven’t been able to weigh since August 1st…another major hurdle for me. I get to weigh and have body analysis done tomorrow. I’m excited but scared…

Holly, change is difficult, and made more difficult with children involved. I know you are doing the very best you can to provide a very nurturing and safe environment for your children and yourself. That starts with having a mother who is healthy and happy, and seeking a change to better achieve your health goals is good for the whole family. That is true even if one or more of the children can’t see the big picture yet. Whether VA is your permanent home or not, it is the place where you can more quickly achieve your educational goals, something that is good for your whole family, again. The benefits of you being able to get back with healthy eating are enormous, and if getting away from your environment in TX was a key to that, then really you had no other choice.

I really admire your resolve and your ability to keep looking forward. Give this move the time it deserves and work toward those goals with a narrow focus. Once they are achieved, then you can decide your next move. Until then, enjoy the good things you have found in VA and know that going forward it will be easier. The worst is behind you now I think. Good luck! Also, thanks for blogging, as it is inspiring to so many of us.

(By the way, sending a child away to college is heart wrenching for most of us. The pain will ease eventually and you will learn the joys of having an adult child with whom you have a close relationship. Hang in there….I can tell you this does get better.)

I walked out of the door this morning, sore all over but then thought to myself “you know, I actually think I’m stronger & healthier now than I’ve ever been in my life.” That made me feel better, right away.
