Exactly 1 Year Ago!!

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

It has been EXACTLY 1 year that I started my weight loss journey. July 3 2011 was the day that has changed my life not just for the better but the healthier (which is for the better).
There have many roadblocks and detours on this journey. The path wasn't always an easy one to follow but I did and stayed on the path and I have accomplished so much.
Never did I think I would be where I am today. And, that is because like many, I have tried and failed at numerous attempts at dieting. Gain weight lose weight gain weight lose weight. We've all been there and I'm not known for completing things....I get sidetracked easily & discouraged.
What made this time different-alot!! I was tired of being the fattest person everywhere I went,tired of being embarrassed & disgusted with myself. I hated the way I looked (I'm still working on it) and I was repulsed. I thought at my heaviest weight 328 lbs that I didn't deserve happiness. I wasn't as good as everyone else. Even though I would bend over backwards for any of my friends or family.
Today, 1 year later, I'm 138.5 lbs lighter. I weigh 189. 5 now. I can't remember the last time I was this weight. I still have about 60-70 more lbs to go but I've accomplished so much in 365 days. I plan to keep on going and not stopping until I reach my goal.
I feel great about myself, feel great physically and I'm gonna be around for my kids as long as possible!! I'm enjoying life now and participating in life not just watching my life go with wasted moments. I'm making memories for me and my children. One day when I am gone my children will remember a mother who got herself healthy not just for herself but for them too.
Everyday is another chance to create a new you and I'm not wasting anymore chances!!

    Happy Anniversary!!!!!! You have done so much in a year... and I think it is great that it comes the day before Independence Day.... like it is your own throwing off the rule of tyranny (obesity and all the accompanying restrictions).

You are truly an inspiration.
