ONEDERLAND! - A Journey with Pics!


Tuesday, June 14, 2011

I can't believe I finally get to write this blog post!



I started this journey March 12th 2009 - and 86 lbs heavier!



Its been a lot of hard work!

I've had to learn why I have some nasty eating habits so I can gradually work toward fixing them. I know I'm not done either :P

I've learned to LOVE fitness.

I ran my first 5k last December.



I so don't even care how bad that picture is :P I was happy to be wearing a race bib!

Now I've lost:

86 lbs
10 sizes (went from a 22 and am currently a 12)
12+ inches around my waist
A lot of bad habits
Some of my fears

But what I've gained:

Nutritional knowledge
self confidence
a little humility :)
a lot of AMAZING friends and support here on SP.
I started my own healthy living / recipe blog. www.alifewithouticecream
.com


Thank you SP and thank you to all your support!
