2011 Weight Loss Wrap Up

Despite my best efforts to totally derail myself at the end of 2011 (or so it would seem), I count 2011 in the success column.  And while it's just the first day of 2012, I feel like wrapping up 2011 is the perfect way to start the new year.

My Successes:

  • I won a blog re-design from the fabulous April Showers.  I LOVE the new look of my blog.  Looking at it feels like home.


  • I tried to help people start their own weight loss journey by exploring why and how I started.
  • I tried (and ultimately failed) to reach 100 days in a row of healthy eating.  But this challenge introduced me to Jessie, one of my very best friends.  I love her (busted) guts.
  • I started exploring the idea of weekly goals, which is something I'd like to get back to.
  • I had a good bit of Revolutionary Thinking.  I realized what works for me and I made it work.










I'm not setting any resolutions, but I will work on the monthly goals I outlined in my #resound11 post about goals for the coming year.  The way the past month has gone, it would be easy to say that 2011 was a failure.  I lost 27 pounds in one year.  I choose to see that as a positive.  I know I can do better in 2012 and all I can say right now is that I'll put forth the effort.

Please join me.  Let's build an incredible community of support!

Love, peace & happiness to all of you out there!  Let's rock the hell out of 2012!!
