One Year Ago...

Monday, February 28, 2011

I said that I was just sick to death of me. I was not happy with how I was not in control of my eatting and how my clothes were fitting. Fortunately, I said this to the right person and was offered the support I needed to get extremely serious about changing my life. I also was a not-so-very active member of this website. On March first of last year that all changed.
Since then:
I have tracked my food daily and added exercise into my life.
I have lost over 35 pounds.
I have maintained that loss for over six months.
I became vegatarian.
I have completed two running events.
I have learned about my needs both physically and mentally.
So today I am not sick at all of me. I eat to be comfortable in my clothes not to comfort my emotions. I eat for my health and exercise for my emotional well-being.

I don't begin to do any of this perfectly. But for the past year I have done it mostly "well". I have surpassed my grandest expectations of me and plan to continue on this path.

Thanks to all of you for the support, inspiration, and company along the way.

    It is great that we don't have to be perfect. Maintaining for six months is wonderful. What an encouragement for the rest of us. Thanks for sharing.

    Congratulations on the new healthy you. You have done great.

I agree that Sparkpeople is a great support site and I am loving it too. I hope next January I will be able to write a blog like yours - except not the vegetarian part!
