I am 4 years into my "serious" weight loss journey. In the last 4.5 years I have gone from 353# to 179#. From a size 36 pant to a size 12/14. From a size 30/32 shirt size to a sm/med. I am proud of what I have accomplished, but there is so much more to this journey than the weight factor.
2012 was a really tough year for me. I have battled SEVERE depression and put on 19#. Of course I know what I should do, however when you are in that dark point in your life it is hard to do anything. There were times I barely made it through the day.
I am still battling severe depression, but I want to redefine my life this year. This year is the year I become an active and balanced person. It is the year I am going to live life to the fullest! Focusing on my health and practicing saying NO. And so far I am doing a great job!!
Some accomplishments are:
I was able to say NO to a family party that we've had @ my house for the past 12 years on Memorial Day! Woo Hoo!!
I have started to track my food again, even if I have bombed!
My hubby and I agreed that I need ME time. And I will be scheduling it for every week.(I work from home and run a daycare/preschool 12 hours a day)
Although I am in that really dark place I am starting to see that tiny light at the end! This year will be the best yet!!
This is my only goal this year:
"Surround yourself with the
dreamers and the doers, the
believers and the thinkers.
But most of all, surround
yourself with those who
see greatness within you,
even when you don't see
