Blog-aversary: 3 Years

Here we are 3 years in. Let's do a recap:

November 2011: our journey began with 2 weeks at The Biggest Loser Resort in Malibu. You can read all about those 2 weeks by clicking here. Those 2 weeks laid down a foundation for our journey which we knew would not be easy. We were over weight, sedentary and had no idea how hard this would actually be. 

2012: was the year we would face all of this and would really need to change everything at home. Losing at home including finding support, making support, and staying focused in the reality that caused the weight in the first place. 

2013: was maintenance year. The statistics of a large weight loss over long periods is not very favorable. It is actually terrifyingly low. 2013 included changes in trainers, upping the workouts and making a HUGE conscious effort in nutrition. And we found Team Beachbody. This process relies heavily on accountability and motivation. It is very easy to eat something, because "no one will know", but it is true that what you eat in private will show in public. As we started to lose focus on training and nutrition, our Coach and Team Beachbody Challenges helped us stay accountable to what we say we were going to do.
2014: Has been a challenge. All of those things in 2013 that we thought we had a good handle on have been on going challenges to maintain. The accountability with Team Beachbody remains and is a constant aspect of our days, but the issue that remains is CONSISTENCY.  With real life it can be hard to stay consistent. Schedules change, work expectations change, as do goals. So here we are at the end of year 3, we have made some success because we have not gained it all back, but the battle continues. Everyday is a fight to be better than the day before. Every meal needs to be a reminder to fuel our bodies not our emotions. Every person we meet is a chance to INSPIRE to be INSPIRED. Because seeing others succeed fuels the fire to be stronger, better and more consistent.
