One years sans 200 lbs…my new reality

Taking stock one year after -200+ lb weight loss: Fit, active & healthy…
embracing life & reality from the center of my equation

Lori at one year - first "little" black dressThis is one of the toughest blogs I’ve written in two and a half years. I had intended to post it on the one-year  anniversary of my -211 lb weight loss (May 11, 2013) but it wasn’t ready. The words were not flowing as easily as I had hoped.

Shedding more than 200 pounds and going from a body fat percentage of 60+% to 14.5%, learning to live in the center of my equation for the first time ever, sharing my story for the world to see, and loving and accepting myself along the way – those are incredible, incredible accomplishments for which I am forever grateful and extremely proud!

Lori in the equation - one year laterI reached my weight loss goal on May 11, 2012. One year later, I am a fit, active, healthy and happy “girl” living in the center of her equation, embracing life with energy, passion and love!

I started my personal transformation journey in Dec. 2010 and after 18 months of work to get to goal, I celebrated last year with a party and a makeover May 11-12, 2012. (See celebration party photos here. I’m still smiling about it one year later!) Read more
