Catherine in August 2009 and now

If you need a little motivation to help you stick to your New Years resolutions, I think this will help. 

Congratulations to Catherine, today marks the day that she officially lost over 50 lbs with us at Verve.  Catherine has been with us now for six months and started the zone diet right away.  Catherine we are so proud of your dedication to your health and fitness. Health is a journey not a destination.  Congratulations again, this proves your amazing dedication!

What are your New Years resolutions?

  7. Aww thanks you guys! Wow! I really appreciate the kind words 🙂 I’ve been the recipient of SO MUCH support and love; it’s tough to even imagine that I could remotely reciprocate what you send my direction every day. You guys really mean a lot and I’m extremely grateful. My family is grateful too. They’ve heard me gush about how fantastic the community is and know that this 50lbs is truly a team effort.
    Thanks to Elizabeth for getting me started in CF (can never ever repay) and for being selfless in her support as well. I can’t really truly articulate what she’s meant to my life and getting healthy. It’s just really huge, to say the least.
    Thanks for all the fantastic people at CFV, Matt and Cherie. You guys are the BEST and I couldn’t imagine a better crew to conquer this goal with. I would have never imagined that would be so lucky as to gain so many new friends this year on top of getting healthy. 2009 rocked the hizzy and I look forward to 2010 and another 30lbs coming off 🙂
    Oh and yes, I’ve decided to live like Beyonce’ and carry my own wind machine around for dramatic effect. *queue wind*

My New Years resolution is to keep on living my life. I am in a good place mentally, physically, emotionally and location wise… I love my life and if I can continue to grow, I will be satisfied!
    I love you verve!!!!!happy new year!!!!
