10/4/16 - Two years into a healthy, active lifestyle. Still not at my original weight goal, but continuing to eat healthy, sleep better, and staying active.

10/4/15 - One year down since my "restart". I've made many lifestyle changes to help me get fit. Exercise and eating healthy are now part of my daily routine. It's been a difficult year, but recognizing how much stronger I am makes it worth it! I'm not perfect, but more often than not I make the right choices. I believe I'll be even stronger and more fit this time next year!

10/4/14 - Another restart...some day I will get this "lifestyle change" through my head. In the mean time, I'm starting fresh. Trying even smaller, short term goals this time.
