“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.
