RUN HAPPY!!!

I guess it is time for me to update my page. Especially since it isn't 2012 anymore. It's another year and I am still here...but that is a great thing! It means that I am still moving forward and refusing to turn back. I have come so far in the past few of years, while I haven't made goal weight I am so happy with the results so far. And I have did a little back sliding and had some weight gain but I know that if I keep pushing forward I will get where I want to be.

It hasn't been easy I have had set backs and am still struggling with food, I guess food will always be my frenemy. I realize I have an unhealthy relationship with food but I am learning to work around that. I am not willing to give up the foods that I love so I have to learn to eat in moderation but nothing is off limits. If I can watch what I eat 80% of the time I look at it as a positive lifestyle change. I want this to be permanent this time I know that diets don't work for me and I just have to learn to control my eating the best I can with changes that I can live with for the rest of my life.

I have only ran two races since 2012, life got in the way :( But I am going to try and run one race a month this year. With my first one today.

thanks for the comment on my post about wellbutrin.
i hate the way that stuff made me feel after only 2 days. it has since been 2 days since i stopped taking it and i feel so much better.
no headaches, and i slept like a baby last night, i didnt feel all day like i was going to run out of my skin and climb the walls.
no thanks.
for now i will stick to diet, exercise, blogging and staying busy to deal with depression, im not suggesting people dont try medication, i will ask my doctor to try me on something new soon.

I'm feeling the exact same way. How can my little one be two? And your granddaughter!!! It really doesn't seem like that long ago that you and I were chatting about your daughter expecting a child, due around the same time I was. (I was MIA for awhile, too. Lost my way after my son grew out of newborn-hood. Mommy guilt leaving him to focus on me.)
