A View From The Finish Line...

Friday, September 10, 2010

Exactly one year later... I've lost 100 lbs., gained a crap load of self-esteem, was inspired by many and have hopefully inspired others, became a much happier person, changed many things in my personal life that have made me feel more comfortable in my own skin, and have learned things about myself that I wish I had known earlier in life.
I'm grateful for SP and the people who have helped me along my journey.
It's not over of course. Many people gain the weight back. Am I worried? No.
I did things the right way this time. The mental part of weight loss is SOO important. I'd say that it's 90% of it.
So, here I am at the finish line. Waiting for my real life to begin. The view ROCKS!
I'll be here, cheering all of you along. Thanks again!
