Two Years of Losing Fat and Winning In Life

Wow! Time really does fly when you're living a fit and active lifestyle!! It's been TWO years since I determined that I would live a life of eating clean, consistent exercise, and taking care of me--Shay Shay!



What has happened in two years?:
  • Lost over 50 lbs
  • Lost close to 20% body fat
  • Dropped from size 16 to size 8
  • Ran a Half Marathon
  • Can do men push-ups

Has it been easy? To be honest--kinda. Do I get in ruts and don't want to workout or want to eat everything in sight--clean or not so clean? YES!! Do I have moments when I hate to get on the scale or put on my fitter jeans? YES!! Honestly, I just got out of such a rut and moment just a few days ago. But, do I also know that when I prepare, focus, and do what I know is best for me and my body that I will see results? OH YES INDEED!!


The great thing about my new lifestyle is that it is truly a way of living for me--not a diet. I appreciate that life has ups, downs, victories, challenges, and opportunities. I appreciate that with living there is a new day to do better than I did yesterday--in all areas of my life, including my physical well-being.


Although I am STILL NOT at my initial goal after two years, I am good. I know that WILL get there!

So, Congratulations to me--Shannon Omia, Shay Shay. Keep the Momentum Going!!!!

Shannon,

You are an inspiration and should be plenty proud to be strutting your size 8 self! I appreciate all your inspiration and support as I try to regain my hot momma status. Thank you for the impromptu texts and phone calls while 'at work'.

Love ya,

Steph
