One of My HUGE secrets to my Success

What's the big secret to my success? Weekly weigh-ins.  EVERY Friday.

Today's weight: 144.8 lbs

Goal weight: 145.0 lbs

I've been at my goal weight since December 17, 2010.

What If I Fall?

I tried something new.

For the for the very first time.


Was the BIG day.

The most physically challenging Non-Scale Victory (NSV) to date.

I swung on my my hands.

And dangled from my knees.

I was upside down.

And I flew through the air.

...on a TRAPEZE

At a trapeze class, to be quite specific.

And guess what?

I survived to tell you the tale.

Right here.

Right now.

Climbing up the metal ladder was the most difficult for me. 
 Swinging from the platform was a leap of faith...could I hold on and support my body weight?

 I learned to get my legs up and hang from my knees!

 I even learned that I could let go and have someone catch me!
Check out the video of me flying through the air HERE.

Today, the day after, my muscles are the most sore they have ever been since I had Lap-Band surgery in October 2009.

My abs hurt.

My arms hurt.

My calves hurt.

It hurts to sit down.

It hurts to laugh.

Did I mention that my abs hurt?

Oh my.  Like a thousand sit-ups.

Was it worth it?
