Michelle Osgood  Doing the best I can every day. Working towards Optimal Health! #RinkRatToRocket #PatoMotown

My husband has been wanting to make a butterfly garden for years so this year for his birthday, I made a small one in our yard. As part of the gift, I purchased some #monarch caterpillars and we got them just a few weeks ago. They ate TONS of milkweed, each one turned into a chrysalis and just this week they started emerging. This is one of the first guys just after he was set free. We prayed for safe travels and I was lucky enough to snap a few shots while he soaked up some sun waaay up in a tree!

Now that I'm trying to officially be a "real" photographer, my husband has decided he wants to take pictures of me taking pictures. πŸ˜‚ Listen, if the photo turned out cool how you got it shouldn't be an issue! πŸ˜‹πŸ“·

Out walking yesterday and found a big turtle nest that recently hatched! Hope all the little guys made it to the river. πŸ™‚

I had an AMAZING day today. I've started volunteering with #MichiganAvianExperience and got to attend an event today at @robinhillsfarm with the one and only American Kestrel! While he wasn't as thrilled with the cows and pigs as I was, we still had a fun time and got to meet a lot of great people. As my weight loss journey slows, I'm starting to have enough courage to get out and do some things that I've always wanted to do, which is a lot of fun!

Well guys, here it is. πŸ’œ My officially-official, before and after, one year out picture.
Before: July 27, 2016, BMI 58.7
Current: July 27, 2017, BMI 32.1

You may notice I'm not using my normal weight loss hashtags on this one. This is for the people who have followed me and encouraged me this past year. Seeing you guys cheering me on has helped more than I can say. I'm not sure if I'm technically a "rocket" yet, but I think I might get a few more looks than I used to being the rink rat. πŸ˜‚ Thank you for motivating me and sticking with me. I'm not done, but I've come way further than I ever imagined I could in just one year.

Continuing my week of weight-loss celebration with 2 quick comparison pictures I took last night. YOU GUYS. Both of these used to fit me! Like, tightly! The first picture is one of 2 pairs of jeans that fit me at the time so I wore them every other day. I kept them because they were my most comfortable pair of jeans and if I didn't succeed, I wanted to make sure I still had them. The second picture is scrubs I used to wear to work. I was utterly devastated to buy unisex size 3XL pants. I could find no women's style scrubs to fit me. When I tried these on for the first time in almost a year last night and fit both legs in one side, I was shocked and a little choked up! 😲

I post this not to show off, but to give hope to someone just like me (circa July 2016), who is searching Instagram weight loss hashtags for someone who made it to convince yourself that you can too. Pictures like this are what helped motivate me, I would go to the gym and picture in my mind the before and after side by sides of @graciesjourney and @kimberfitgirl. I wanted so much to be like them and have a dramatic side by side. Spoiler alert: I do, and it's coming tomorrow! πŸŽ‰ This can happen and you have the strength to do it, I promise you do even if it's buried very deep! It's there.

Well #FitFam, since it's coming up on my 1 year weight loss anniversary (7/27!), I thought I'd try to be more Insta-active this week. πŸ˜‚ For those that have only cyber-met me, you may be surprised to find out I am a painful #introvert (#INFJ), to the point most people think I'm just snobby. The truth is, posting as much as I did was really stressful! But, I wouldn't change it for anything. If I helped even one person get a little motivated, it was worth it. And I know I did because she told me. πŸ’œ So, here's one of my favorite pictures of ME to kick off the celebration. I bought this shirt 2 years ago and it didn't fit. I never thought it would. I tried it on a couple months ago and it doesn't look too bad if I do say so myself.
One of my favorite parts of this journey has been finding out I kinda like shopping now. 😏 Another first for me. "Buy the biggest they have and pray it fits" used to be my saying. Now if I buy the biggest size I have to take it back.
The next step will be some serious #skinremoval. I have some consults scheduled and I will let you all know when it gets close. That is a downside of #massiveweightloss, massive skin! I will call them my battle scars, because Lord knows this has been a battle.

#Thursdate at @mybigsalad with my sweetie Minnie Mouse! ❀️She heard someone said cookies!! πŸͺ

Well #FitFam, here you go. #SuccessStorySaturday! (Is that a thing? It should totally be a thing.) I am so proud to tell you that I completed @humanesocietyofhuronvalley's #WalkAndWag 5K today in 43 minutes, and according to my FitBit it was actually 3.5 miles. I carried my hound Oscar in his @k9sportsack that he LOVES (and told lots of people all about the backpack). I listened to @rockmyrun's "Best of 2016 Cardio Pop" to keep me motivated, which it did since that was almost 13 minutes faster than my 2016 5K averages. You guys, this was huge for me because my goal was to run it with my dog Max, who ended up getting injured last week. I wasn't going to go because I was so sad that Max couldn't do it, but I decided to do this for me, and I did it!! What a great Saturday, supporting a great event. πŸ™‚πŸΎ

Pup-sitting Charlotte Marie this weekend, the 3 doxies have put themselves in exile to be safe... πŸ˜‚

Well #FitFam, you all know I'm not one for bathroom selfies. πŸ˜‚ I had to post this to show you guys how much better I'm feeling these days. It's pretty amazing, actually. I haven't posted in awhile, and that's mainly because I've only been losing 1-2 pounds weekly and I didn't think anyone would be interested. But it's certainly made a difference with me! Since July 27, 2016 I've lost 118 pounds. I'm 22 pounds from my goal which means I'm going SKYDIVING soon!!! This journey, as hard as it has been, is so worth it and I wish I could tell everyone struggling, scanning Instagram right now that you DO have the strength and you CAN achieve your goals. I'm so close, and I never thought this was possible. I've lost more than some humans weigh. You can do this too! ❀️

MyFitnessPal reminded me on Monday that I'm getting closer to my goal every day! I haven't been as active here because I wasn't sure anyone would care if I'd lost 1 pound a week but you know what? I'm still chipping away...no matter how slow I'm going, I'm still going. πŸ˜‰ Down a total of 107 pounds and feeling 107% better than I ever have before. πŸ™‚
