My 100 lb weight loss journey

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, January 30, 2011

This is a slideshow presentation of my journey so far and how I got started running. I hope you like it.

I started my journey May of 2008. After losing 50 lbs on my own, I was laid off. Over a course of 4 months, I regained 20 lbs. After getting back to work, I struggled. I finally enlisted the help of a personal trainer and got back on track. This is my story.

    This is really a emoticon emoticon "on 2 victory"! emoticon for sharing your emoticon video. Your victory has really inspired me and has increased my faith and confidence in myself to pursue a desire of my heart that I had given up on. I always wanted to learn how to emoticon , but I allowed my weight and other health issues to emoticon me in the past, but it's a new day and it's a new me, "The real me" is back and I will no longer be a prisoner in my own body and I will no longer deprive myself of doing anything that I desire to do for any reason. I am going to emoticon ! emoticon emoticon you're the emoticon !!!

P.S. This song is powerful. I never heard it before, I love it. I must add this to my collection. Who is this song by?

  OK - I admit - cynical me just clicked on the video link thinking, 'hey, it beats going to the kitchen to wash dishes' *yawns*

By the time I finished watching this, I had tears in my eyes. You look so happy when running, that's beautiful.
