I had an astonishing realization today. This is what 12 months and 20lbs looks like. Motivation enough to keep it that way! Yes, I had help in the form of a fantastic clinic called One Life (www.onelifediet.com), but it also took some dedication on my part. High protein, low carbs, really understanding portions, much less alcohol (but not none!) and very little chocolate! Plus the support of my family. It’s really, really nice to be able to see the fruits of my labor in these photographs.
