It's a journey, not a race

January 2015 - I'm still here...

Some may think that is a sad statement, but I am here because I need to be - to hold myself accountable.

I will NEVER quit-- and when I reach my ultimate goal, I will still be here, so that I can maintain and encourage others.

Highlights:

Highlights:

I have been up and down in weight since starting this journey. I've gained so much more than a number on a scale or a pants size...

I can run/jog/walk consistently without feeling like I am going to die.

I can deadlift 300#

Food is fuel - it's purpose is to fuel me so I can do the things I want to do. It's not for entertainment purposes.

My daughter inspires me - at age 14 she knows that her worth is not equivalent to the size she wears. She measures her success in her accomplishments - in the number of laps she swims in the pool, or how many miles she can run. I am so proud of her.

I'm worth the effort. I refuse to put my health last anymore.
