“Since Healthy Train… I have completed my first half marathon, wore a shirt that I loved but was too small (it’s actually too big for me now!), and been in more photos with my friends and family! I walk taller and smile bigger. I feel amazing! I can’t wait to board the next Healthy Train….choo choo!”

“I wrote in my first emai, that I will probably be the one who ends up pregnant! Well….I’m 12 weeks pregnant!! haha!! I am so happy that I got to start this pregnancy with 12.22% less weight than I would have at the beginning of this year! At my first prenatal visit, I asked my Dr about my weight because I dont want a high risk pregnancy. He told me “your weight is fine!” It meant the world to hear those words!! I havent heard those words from anyone besides my husband in 6 years!! I still have plenty more to go, but I wont be able to for another 6 months. But I started this pregnancy healthier (thank you Bobbi), so I intended on keeping it that way!”

“I am not where I hoped to be but I am so much farther than I thought I could ever get! This round I have lost 6.37 percent, which I am proud of. The last year and a half has been the hardest time in my personal life ever and I have fought hard to keep going. I have given myself permission to just maintain for a little while when things were really rough and I just didn’t have the energy to focus on continuing the loss. So far, since September 2009, I have lost 22.54% of myself!!! That just blows my mind! When I reach my goal, I will have lost 1/3 of myself, which is amazing and also a bit sad to realize how much I have carried around all of these years!”

“I want to thank you sooo very much for the train. As you know from the start of this second round, that I am here to lose weight and watch and congratulate someone else for doing something outstanding. You have helped a bunch of folks do some very great things and in the process, you have also lost a great deal of weight. I applaud your ability to motivate and inspire and share your passion of photography along the way. I have done well this round. I am pleased in the size 34-36 pants and size Large shirts I can fit into. It is quite odd to not have to buy shirts that have “X”‘s in it, much less XXXXL that I originally wore. For me it is about not feeling tired and needing to always take breaks. It is about taking my children to amusment parks and riding on the children rides with them. (I have a 9 and 4 year old) I am so happy with myself now it is crazy. I just can not wait to see the pics of everyone!! and congrats in advance to the winner!!”

Jill Pollitt | 21.64%
“I lost a total of 37 pounds and I am so proud of myself even if I don’t win your awesome contest. I am hoping to lose another 10 to 12 pounds in 2011 to be at the weight I was before I had my first baby who will be 12 in January. I just want to thank you again for doing this. It really helps to be held accountable!”
21.64%!??!?!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!?! Now THAT’S impressive!!!!! Jill has been in the number one spot since the beginning!
High fives Jill!
Now… My turn. 🙂
Bobbi Sheridan | 8.02%
could tell that I’d lost weight in the front view photo… but wasn’t feeling like there was a huge difference. THEN I put THIS together. I 100% see it most in my butt. BTW, don’t mind the jersey shore jeans I’m wearing… they just fit me best when I went jeans shopping last month 🙂

I hardly recognize that Bobbi. I’m not the same person I was then… and I’m not only referring to physical changes. Self esteem is a powerful thing.
So… where do I stand now with the healthy train? I still have 15 lbs to lose to feel 100% healthy. Healthy train 5.0 here we come! It’ll start in January… so stay tuned for that 😀
I love our blog readers. Can’t thank you enough for your support, love, friendship, encouragement and high fives.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
I’m a new reader so I wasn’t around for the beginning of this most recent Healthy Train but I’m definitely on board for the next!
Bobbi you look AWESOME! Congratulations! And all of the healthy train participants too 🙂
Awesome job to all of you guys!! That is so amazing. I’m totally up for Healthy Train 5.0!!
Congratulations everyone! You look amazing!
Wow! Way to go to all the healthy train participants! You did amazing.
Bobbi – you look fabulous! Way to work hard and get amazing results! I’ve lost 50+ lbs twice in my life now (once before marriage, once after our 3rd child) and have 25 to lose now (since we had another baby!) and this post inspires me to start working hard again!
Thank you guys!
WOW! Congratulations to everyone!!!
so glad to see our good friend Alison, kudos to you Alison as well of the rest of you for your amazing journey!
I so LOVE to watch everything you guys do, and so sad to not have met ya’ll on your Tx trip… SAD FACE 🙁 Well I really wanna jump on the next Healthy Train cause with 3 kiddos and all the rest of life its hard to keep on track.. Love you guys and congrats to all who did the last one- YALL LOOK AWESOME 🙂
Aww, yay! Congrats everyone. This is so fun! I definitely want in on the next one too if there is one!! 🙂
Thanks for doing this Bobbi. I know it’s a lot of work.
you look great (and so does everyone else)!
Thank God for 5.0… I seriously had an EPIC FAIL with this one. I hate that I completely lost focus, but to my credit, I have been busier than ever this year. I am starting out 2011 with pretty much a whole new approach to life, so I hope i can hop on and STAY on this time!
Bobbi you are radiant and to all the others…you should be so proud! Congratulations on all your hard work! I want in on the next healthy train-new reader over her 🙂
bobbi – you look so beautiful! everyone did a great job – i am really impressed – lots of hard, hard work went into this. i might have to get in on the next healthy train – for real! i’ll be watching.
Bobbi, you look absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Everything about you is glowing – in an awesome way!
you all look amazing! great job everyone – it is so refreshing to see people working hard getting healthy :).
Everyone looks great! Bobbi you look so beautiful! I’m a new reader and I can’t wait until the next Healthy Train, I wanna play! 🙂
Bobbi! You look freakin’ amazing! Look how small your tushy is. Thank you so much for starting this train. It has changed so many lives. I can’t wait for the next one. I’ve got more to lose and it’s so much better with this awesome group.
Congrats to Jill! You rocked it out since the beginning. You look fabulous!
OMG! Bobbi you look amazing!!!!!!! I am totally up for the next Healthy train as well!!! Congratulations!!
Wow from a cutie now to a hottie congrats Bobbi and to Mike also. 😉
AMAZING!!! I’m so proud of everybody! I was of the starters and not finishers…i’m proud to say i lost some weight but not proud that i became to “busy with work” to record or to keep up with my gym schedule.
I WILL complete the healthy train 4.0. I WILL lose more weight.
Can’t wait! Thanks so much Bobbi for creating this 🙂
you all look gorgeous. Great transformations. I too would love to participate in 5.0. So I’m yay for the new year.
Bobbi, unless you are doing something completely different, your hair even looks healthier! And holy cow, Jill looks great! Everyone definitely has more confidence in their second photos…Mission Accomplished, Health Train!
god DAMN! Everybody who sent in photos is a.) brave as shit and b.) awesome and dedicated. Great job, everyone.
You look amazing Bobbi!! Great work!
Congratulations everyone!! I want on the next train if this is done again!!
Wow. Congrats to everyone who participated! That takes a lot of dedication. Bobbi – you look AMAZING. Your photos in particular are actually giving me some motivation. Right now I look like your early before pictures (with the short hair… and I have the same hair style right now to boot!). I just had a baby (my 2nd) in April and haven’t lost most of the weight. My darling hubby on the other hand, has lost 20+ lbs in under two months on the diet he’s on. Getting back to a healthier size seems like such a far off goal, but seeing your before & afters gives me hope.
Wow- what an amazing group! I’m in awe that you have inspired so many people to join you on the healthy train and just want you to know that you have inspired me too – can’t wait for healthy train 2011!! Congrats to everyone that worked so hard! You all are amazing!
First time commenting and I needed to let ALL you guys know that you are FANTASTIC! Bobbi, you are beautiful! First thing I noticed in your pictures, your hair. Gorgeous!
Just now seeing this post! I am so happy! 🙂 Thanks so much Bobbi! You are awesome and YOU look fantastic!!!
you look amazing!!
what exactly is this “healthy train” though? i haven’t been following your blog long so i haven’t seen this yet. what is it all about?
You ALL look amazing! Congratulations to you all – it is certainly inspiring to see.
Truly amazing! Great job everyone! And you, Bobbi, love-love-love you for starting this and helping to motivate everyone. Look at all the lives you’ve helped to change for the better! Wow!
um ok….to be totally honest, the first thing I thought when I saw your (Bobbi’s) pics: omg your butt looks so CUTE! Just keepin it real 😉
congrats everyone!! you’re all winners in my eyes!
Yay Healthy Train!!
ps-Bobbi, your tush is so cute
Amazing!!! I can’t wait to join the train in January. 🙂
I’m joining this round! Can’t wait!
Congrats to you all!
Wow, congrats to ALL the players .. You all look great! I am expecting a baby in January but I will be ready to jump on the weight loss wagon after things get settled down with our new little one.
SO incredible. Everyone. WOW. Bobbi, I’m just so proud of you, having watched the transformation over the past few years. You look amazing.
you are all BA’s! So inspirational.
Congratulations to all who have lost weight. Your stories have been very encouraging. I plan on joining the Healthy Train 5.0 this January. I have thought about it twice before, but am finally ready to make some changes.
Congratulations to all of these amazing people! You guys are all winners!
Everyone looks absolutely amazing and should be SOOOO proud of how much you have accomplished!! Like you said bobbi, a little self confidence is an amazing thing:) I am doing stuff now I never in a million years would have considered before. I was in my xtreme fit class on Saturday doing ladder kicks and power punches and just started laughing. Never in a million years did I think I COULD do those things let alone that I WOULD! Thank you so much, again, bobbi for spearheading this. It makes all the difference! and 5.0 will be the one where I reach my goal damn it! lol
I am so inspired by all of of the participants – you’ve all done an amazing job! Bobbi, you look great and you’ve encouraged so many others. I kind of got off track this year and blamed being overwhelmingly busy, but I’m ready to get back on board with the Healthy Train in January!
The biggest difference is your butt?? Okay, I’ll give you that. There IS a difference there…BUT (no pun, I swear!), the biggest difference I see? You are STANDING TALLER! Your posture is different…there’s pride, confidence, and accomplishment in how you hold yourself in those most recent pictures! That is so powerful! This is of course, not to ignore the obvious change…I’m not even about that downplay your hard work! But woah do you look so confident! 🙂 Great work everyone! Great work Bobbi for using your charismatic and magnetic personality to inspire others to improve themselves! 🙂
I love the after pictures, they are so inspiring! Congrats to everyone. Not only have you all lost weight but you look healthy! That’s the best part I think. It awesome to look good, but to FEEL good is the icing. Awesome job everyone. I may have to hop on the train if there is a next time!
OMG!!!!!! Everyone looks AWESOME!!!!!
Where do I sign up??? NO……FOR REALS!!!!!
I am so there come January
Congrats to all the healthy train-ers! And congrats to Bobbi for starting such an awesome group… Just one more reason why you kick ass!
During reading this post I felt like dang I missed my chance but then to my surprise scrolling down to the end (that’s why you shld read the whole post) I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL YOU START BACK UP IN JAN. I can’t wait to jump on board. And maybe if I’m bold enough I’ll get my blog readers posted on my journey… I said MAYBE right?! ha! Oh and bobbi high five me on the weight loss you look more self estem-ishy!
two words: HOLY CRAP!
Congrats! You look awesome:)
Congratulations to everyone! I’m definitely hopping on the train in January!
WOW guys! Amazing! Keep the good work!
Another new reader here who didn’t get to participate this time but am anxious for the next go-round! I’ve lost 40 pounds this year, and am planning to lose an additional 20 in 2011. Bobbi, your progress is amazing, as is everyone else who is pictured.
Dang girl…you look fabulous. I love that you are doing it the healthy way. I also have a secret weapon for you. Let’s chat. It is easy and healthy! go get ’em in 2011
Bobbi! I’m wicked inspired! You all look fabulous and trust me, I could use around 50lbs off myself (I lost a great deal and then had a very emotionally rocked year and put almost all of it back on again) Let me know when that next train rolls out of the station – I want to be one of the first ones on it!
Great job everyone!
Bobbi, you look AMAZING! Very inspiring.
I would LOVE to get on the train this year! I am wanting to put loosing weight on my new years resolution but I am a little scared to fearing that I will fail. But I am hoping to get pregnant next year and could really use to loose almost 100 lbs! Also I live in Austin and would LOVE for you to take our family portrait next time you come out as I am usually the one behind the camera. (Although when I was in school for photography about 7 years ago I modeled quite a bit and had fun doing it. I miss being confident infront of the camera too)
