Looking back

I just posted a blog, but instead of closing out this page, I decided to look back on all my old posts.
WOW! If this is something you have never done, do it TODAY! I can't believe how far I have come.

I started this weight lost journey on February 15th, 2008. I didn't know if I could or would be successful. Here is what I did know: I was unhappy, I was lonely, I was literally alone, and I needed to do something. I had no idea that making the changes I made then would be such a monumental move toward the woman I will eventually be.

80ish lbs lighter and I have learned more about myself, by losing part of myself. I know that I am capable of SO much more than I give myself credit for. I know I have strength that can push past pain. I know that every single day I will have to make the choice to keep doing this. I know that the way I eat and the workouts that I do need to stick with me for the rest of my life. I know there is much more that I need to know....

I have come so far, and yet still feel like I have a long way to go. I will press on; I will survive. Most importantly, I will remember that I have worth that surpasses any number on any scale. I am not 217lbs...I am ME....all of ME...and someone will love every ounce of what I have to offer. I am simply hoping that I have fewer ounces to offer very soon...HAHHA

Whew...glad I re-read my old posts. It was refreshing!
Be Blessed,

It's been a while, but i felt like checking in!
I'm still working hard at this weight loss, but it gets harder with time. Ive lost 80 lbs, and then gained a few, but overall i have done a great job of continually working out 4-5 times a week.
I have also kept up on my eating, which is SO important. I currently want to lose about 20ish I am still on task! I have started running, which is something I NEVER thought I would like, but I actually love it. If I keep this up, I hope to run a marathon by my 30th bday (a little under 5 years from now).
I know it's been a while, but thank you for all your support and well wishes! I know you're all doing an amazing job, so keep up the great work!!!!!!!!!
