Happy 5 years to........ME!!!!!!!

Sunday, November 13, 2011

I have been maintaining for 5 years now. Boy, it feels good to say that! I can tell you it's been a struggle. Family and friends aren't always supportive and a full time job sometimes makes it hard to get in my daily run. It's hard when my family kids me when we eat together. They say, try this, ONE won't hurt you. I know my strengths, and trying one just isn't one of them! I smile, knowing that I have taken control of my life and my body. In these 5 years I have learned that I am responsible for my maintenance and that I shouldn't be swayed by others because they might not always have my best interest at heart. I highly recommend getting into a routine of food and exercise. It makes life so much easier. The best part comes when I meet people that I haven't seen for a while and they comment on the fact that I still look great after all these years. So I give myself a big high five emoticon and know that in another 5 years I can come back here and blog about how great 10 years of maintenance feels!!!!
