... a huge success at the same time ! emoticon

Why a big disappointment, I hear you shout!
Well, when I joined a year ago I wanted to get fitter and wanted to lose the last few pounds and I feel I didn't. I'm still struggling to lose the weight and don't really feel fitter. emoticon

BUT - it also has been a huge success, because I haven't given up. A year ago I would have given up after not losing the weight but I'm still here.
I did reach my goal of walking the marathon in May (even if I was so much in pain afterwards I probably won't do it again). I have started jogging and found it EXTREMELY hard. A year ago I would have given up but now I'm persevering and gradually, VERY gradually I am improving.
I can now run for a little bit, am still enjoying it, and am losing inches, even if not pounds.

So, really, it hasn't been a disappointment (got you looking though emoticon )
it has been a great success and I'm looking forward to my second year!

Thank you everybody for the lovely messages on my page and all those goodies, they have been very appreciated emoticon
