Its interesting to me that I completely let myslef go for three years, but now I am taking such care with my diet and exercise. Im excited about trying new things, yesterday I ran a 5k on the treadmill, tonight I am going to yoga. This time I can't stop, I won't do that to myself again.
Sept 28th, 2010. I am down 18.5 pounds now, from 215 to 196.5. It has been difficult losing with Hashimotos'. I ran my first outdoor 5k on Saturday. My husband and son were waiting at the finish line. It was so empowering. I will continue to run and do everything I am doing, even if it is slow going because I never want to feel how I did before I started, again!

Praise God, you have a supportive husband! And yes, you CAN do it. You are in control, you are the captain of your own ship, hunger is not an emergency, and exercise soreness is only the sign that fat is leaving the body, LOL! Hang onto the vision and imagine the future! And it helps if you are willing to realize that you are on a year long journey.
