Was it Paleo? Was it Body Revolution? Was I magically just more motivated for 2012?
Honestly, I think the biggest factor was: I didn't quit.
In past years I was starts and stops, big pushes of "Let's do this!" and big jumps off the wagon.
Throughout 2012 I kept making progress. I was diligent in my search for what worked for me and I just kept going.
I'm so thankful for that.
I'm grateful I didn't quit. I begin this, my fourth pregnancy, in a much happier and healthier place because I didn't quit.
It really is that simple.
I get emails almost daily with people asking my advice or wanting to know how I did it, how I lost the weight, how I went from a size 22 to a size 8...
Looking forward to 2013 the most important piece of advice I have for any of you beginning (or continuing) your fitness, weight loss, or healthy living journey is this: Don't ever quit.
Don't quit on you. Don't quit on your goals and dreams.
Just. Don't. Quit.
