Another possible benefit of Milk...a better, fitter body? #Positivisimo

BEFORE: One year ago!

Many of you know I have been on and off of Weight Watchers  for yeeeeeeeears. As I look at my progress over this last year in particular, I can see that my success is directly linked to my meeting the plan's daily "good health guidelines".  These guidelines include water servings, fruits and vegetables, etc. But the one I always seemed to have trouble meeting was the requirement of 2-3 daily servings of dairy. WHY? I don't know, I just got lazy about it I guess.

Every year I participate in a fashion show to benefit TACA (Talk About Curing Autism). The photo above was taken right before I went onstage in last year's show, in December 2010. 

I hadn't looked at this photo in a while, but recently pulled it up because this Saturday is this year's TACA fashion show. I was very pleased to see how much healthier and fitter I look now. I KNOW it's because I've been faithfully following the good health guidelines-especially my daily milk!

I have not missed my servings of dairy (usually skim milk on my cereal and some greek yogurt) for even ONE day since October 1st! I don't know *exactly* what the milk is doing, I just know I started having more stamina and could work out harder and for longer stretches of time once I started getting those daily servings in. Is it the milk? I can't say for sure, but I know it can only be helping!
I could NEVER have done this before I started drinking my milk!

The results so far? Well, here's me in an outfit I'll be wearing in this year's show:

I'm so pleased with how much better I look and feel now than I did a year ago. I know it makes ME want to stick to my daily 2-3 servings of milk-especially through the holidays! I couldn't have done it without the Master of the Glass Half Full and his magical white elixir-MILK!
May we all experience the healthiest holiday season ever!
