for Thankful Thursday!

It's been a while since I linked up for a Thankful Thursday post but today I have something I want to share.....

In 12wbt world, as many of you know Wednesday is Weigh in day and while I am no longer officially part of the program I intend on keeping to this tradition....I was away from home and staying at a friends place Tuesday night so could not weigh in Wednesday so did it this morning and.........
BOOM!!!! Goal Weight! So excited!!!

So what am I thankful for....
  • the amazing friends who have supported me through this journey
  • the 12wbt support crew and Michelle Bridges
  • the fact that I have the ability to be able to pay for a program such as this and buy the food to make the difference
  • the ability to fit exercise and the gym into my life but the knowledge to know it's not the be all and end all

I am sure there is so much more to be thankful for but my brain is fried after a big day at work...... and as I said in my final update on Tuesday this is not the end but I am so happy to have reached this milestone!

  6. Gosh that is so good! Congratulations on reaching your goal weight, what's next?
    I love the idea of 12wbt, would love to look at joining in very soon, after seeing so many wonderful results!
    What was the biggest motivation to keep you going?

    1. Hi Lisa, thanks for stopping by. Sorry it's taken me a while to get back to you! I was so stoked to reach my goal weight but I have certainly not reached all my goals! As part of the 12wbt you set all sorts of goals. My 12 months goal is to run a half marathon, so am still working on a lot of mini running goals to try and get there! My motivation to keep going was a lot of different big and little things. I guess things like feeling the difference in my clothes, seeing the number on the scales going down, and some SUPER supportive friends who are on their own health and fitness journey were the main things.
      Good luck with whatever you decide to do!
