A Year Ago Today...

Thursday, December 19, 2013

I started a journey. As of today, I have lost 79 pounds. I cannot thank God enough for this transformation. Obesity, by far, has been my greatest prison in life. Thank you sparkpeople and pals for all of your love and kindness through this process too. I am confidently entering phase 2 expecting to be at goal weight (between 165 and 150) by this time next year. I have learned so much this year. I have fought so many emotional demons, but I am stronger and more determined than I have ever been before, so to this I say, Are you ready to become your best you ever in 2014? Alrightie then, let's do this!!!

See ya at the finish line!


Me the summer of 2012 weighing at least 270 pounds (maybe more); I stopped keeping track after a while, it was too discouraging.

Me as of last night. A picture my hubby took at 192.4, at least 79 pounds smaller than my first pic.

We can do this! Don't you ever give up. This was my THIRD attempt at losing a large amount of weight, my second sparkpeople attempt, and as a former weight loss counselor, ha, God certainly has a sense of humor. Merry Christmas!
