A Year in Pictures: Our Instagram Memories from 2019!

A Year in Pictures: Our Instagram Memories from 2019!
30 Dec 2019

Wow, 2019 has come and gone. What a year of change it has been!

2019 saw me 80+ pounds lighter than I was at the beginning of 2018. While I am happy I have dropped this weight, I still have a long road ahead of me to get where I want to be. Early 2020 will see me back at the gym improving my health, and living a more healthy lifestyle.

There were also some very special moments in 2019. We did a lot of camping, travelled to various resorts, ate lots of awesome food, and spent some quality time with family and friends. I also went on three amazing press trips. We documented all of these memories on Instagram!

Here are some select Instagram photos from this amazing year!
