I have a new mattress and peacefully slept all through the night. I normally toss and turn and wake up almost every hour. I feel rested and my my back doesn't hurt! Yaay!!
I'm also very excited to have my boyfriend return home this week. He spend the past 5 weeks overseas with a study abroad program.
I've lost 5lbs this month an managed to keep it off. I'll continue training for the half marathon I'm running and hopefully *fingers crossed*I'll be starting a new job at my local city college in a month!
Good things are happening

Mother Nature paid me a nasty visit this weekend, but I feel so energized and optimistic about my future. I've been making small changes. Nothing huge, because I want to improve my way of living permanently. :)
I've cleaned out my closet and sorted through so many clothes that I will be dropping off at the new Savers that just opened down the street. I realized that a lot of those clothes were from my absolute lowest point during my battle with Anorexia. I was almost 30 lbs lighter. But with my BDD, I never noticed. When I tried to put a skirt on to size up how much I'd have to lose, I realized it would never happen. I have curves and muscle now, I didn't before. I am learning to love them and will not give up my healthy body in order to fit back into those size threes. Never again.
So I packed them all up and there is so much more room left! All these things that fit, that I don't have to pine after. I feel the weight on my shoulders lessening every day. And for me, that is progress.
I am eating right, exercising a little more every week and feel fantastic. I know in the long term, I will see fantastic -Permanent- results, and that is what I am aiming for.
This weekend was good. I am happy. :) I will continue moving forward and making progress.

Yesterday I went to bed in such a sour mood for a few different reasons. But this morning, after reading a few articles on here and adding a recipe to my page, I am feeling so much better!
I have a delicious cup of coffee, a big bowl of strawberries and a much better mood to help me get through the day. :)
I wasn't able to do my morning routine today, but I'll make up for it after work. I know I'll be feeling much better then.

It's september. I ended up in my doctor's office multiple times over the year for digestive issues. The moment she began throwing UC around, I freaked out and started focusing on my health more than weight loss. I put my exercising on a hold for the moment. There were days I was in so much pain that I couldn't do anything but curl up and wait for it to pass.
I've been on medication that helped fix my problems and now can go about my normal routines. My diet has drastically changed and I feel much better. The only problem now is throughout this past year, I have gradually gained about 10 pounds. It's not a huge change, but I noticed that a lot of my clothes are tighter and some just don't fit at all.
Now that I'm feeling better and my doctor says I'm ok, I'm ready to start this journey anew. I start and stop all the time. It's awful. There is no way to know if I will stick through my plans this time, but I want to. I want to so bad.
I now have a new, full time job, I've graduated from college, I have no other concerns besides my weight. (And if I could get someone to clean my house, that'd be awesome! ;P)
I'm going to do this again. The right way. The healthy way. And I will not give up this time.
