I lost 120 pounds... That was the easy part. Now to keep it off...

I have always been a big girl, even as a child. In January 2009 I weighed over 270 lbs which was the heaviest I had ever been and was tired of feeling like life was passing me by. I thought if I weighed less maybe I would be happier so I began to make small changes in my diet and activity level. It has been a relatively simple process: Move More and Eat Less. Isn't it crazy how the simple things are the hardest to do?

I have lost 120 lbs and am trying to maintain my weight loss. I have come a long way but I am still trying to find balance and be happy with who I am right now. My challenge now is to continue living a healthy lifestyle, get stronger, be happier, and make good choices everyday.

As you start out on your journey to a 'healthier' you please remember that setbacks and bumps on the road will happen. Don't give up! You didn't gain overnight and you won't lose it overnight either. You eat an elephant a bite at a time... if you tried to eat it all at once it wouldn't fit down your throat.

Thanks for my goodie, so sweet of you. Cheering on runners is how I started running. I grew up with my dad running and I always wanted to be a part of that and now finally, I'm a runner, not a fast one, but a runner nonetheless. Good luck with your goals. And you look fabulous, your journey is so inspiring. emoticon
