A year's worth of change, with pictures!

This was me Thursday February 17, 2011 (less than a year ago):

and here I am today:

The first picture was taken a month into my spark journey, I wrote a blog post that day about how proud I was of myself, I woke up extra early so that I could get my workout in before our trip to the museum. At that point in my life I didn't trust myself to take a day off, I was so in love with life and losing the weight, but still deeply afraid of "falling off the wagon", of losing my spark. I'm not afraid anymore. I am in love with life, in love with how easy it has all become (MOST days), and I KNOW without a doubt in my mind that I will hit my goal.

I know I have been MIA, but please know that I value everyone that has shared this journey with me. Although I have not been active on the social side of spark people, I have not missed ONE day of tracking my calories. My second weigh-in will be April 1st (that's right, I have only weighed myself once so far... ok twice, once the first day when I weighed 315 lbs, and once 6 months in when I weighed 262) and I will probably write a blog about my journey so far.

I am cheering you all on!!!
