Weigh-In Day...and Flashback Friday!

Goal Weight: 145 lbs

Today's Weight: 142.0 lbs

Onwards to a few flashback photos for you.  Here I am getting ready to go ATV'ing in the jungles of Kauai, Hawaii March 2009 (~250 lbs): 
'Twas an AMAZING ride!
Covered head-to-toe in Kauai dust and dirt!
What I mostly remember from that day's adventure? Being told repeatedly to "Slow down!"  Gold stars for me and my driving skills.

I had NO IDEA that in less than six months time, I would be banded and on my way to improved health.


  1. What a transformation you have undergone. I'm so very proud of you.

  2. I was thinking in seeing these flashback photos of you how great it was that you went and did all these trips and adventures. It seems like you never let your weight hold you back. I think that's something you should also be proud of. :)

  3. You look amazing, you should be so proud of yourself!!

  4. By chance were you at Kipu Ranch? I was there in May of 2009 and I have almost the exact same picture!!! Covered head to to in red dirt looking like I was about to hold up a stagecoach with the bandana I had to wear over my face :)

  5. And all in less than two years! That's freaking awesome!

  6. Such a fantastic way to positively look back at where you came from and to remind us that you weren't always a svelte little pocket rocket.
