Persistence pays off.

So I know I've kinda harped on this a bit over the last several months.  But persistence really does pay off.  Since this is predominantly a fitness blog (sorta), I gotta share something with ya.

As you know, I've been working my butt off (or actually on since I didn't have much of one before (at least no shape to it)) .I had bought a dress a while back that fit ok but needed to lose some significant inches.

I tried the dress on tonight.  It's looking pretty good.  Not quite there yet but soon.  My goal is to wear it to the Zappacosta concert we're going to on Feb. 13th. and look pretty damned hot in it.  I can't wait!

I have tried for years to get my weight under control.  It never really stuck.  I'd work out for a few weeks, then get sidetracked.  This went on for years.

This time it's sticking.  It took far too long to start seeing results, but now the results are consistent.  People at work are noticing and encouraging.  It helps a lot.  And I'm feeling so good about myself, my life, everything.
Too bad my mom hasn't seen this.  And my dad for that matter.  They would be proud.

So if there's something that you really, really want in life ... go for it.  And don't ever give up.  It'll happen eventually.


  1. You're looking great honey. Keep it up!


  2. I am so proud of you, Sandy. I know I've said this before, but you truly are an inspiration to every woman out there. It is SO HARD to lose weight and stick with it. You're accomplishing something amazing.
    I am confident you will be wearing that dress in February. And when you do, I hope to see lots and lots of pics of you looking beautiful in it!! :)
