Wow, what a ride 2012 has been!

Last New Yearís Eve I was 197lbs. My cousin (who I see once every few years) wanted to know if I was pregnant! My doctor was giving me information and warning me about obesity.

Now Iím hovering around 130 lbs. Iím at a healthy BMI and I need all new clothes.

January, I was in pain all the time in my back and knees. My injured hip would give me trouble.

Now, I have run in 2 5K runs and I walk a minimum of 2 miles per day.

January, I was living on take out crap and I was always tired. I ate constantly from bag and boxes and my kitchen collected dust.

Now, Iím at least putting together healthy meals daily. Iíve even jumped in and made a few REAL meals. So far they have all been good.

There are lots of other positive changes Iíve had this year. But what I have achieved on Spark has been the most amazing. I would not have believed anyone last January if they told me where I would be right now. And Iím actually having some fun doing it. It wasnít an easy year, but it wasnít the worst Iíve had. All and all Iím content with 2012.

Iíve got some ideas for 2013. But that is for tomorrow!

Warm Wags and Happy Snuffles.

    You did one hell of a job with your weight loss !!! You should be very proud of yourself. You are a very busy lady, a great team leader, and the thought process to know that you needed to help yourself, and you DID IT.
I look forward to 2013, and hearing about Tazzy's escapades !!
Thank you for all you have done to keep us motivated.
