I can be more active and enjoy doing it. I want to continue adding more things to my ability to the point that I am unstoppable.

Jesus is my strength for I can do all things through Christ Jesus Who strengthens me.Philippians 4:13
I am not ashamed of Jesus Christ. I serve Him with all of me.
My love for Him surpasses any desires on this earth and it is only because of Him that I live.
I am racing toward the goal. I will not quit or give up.
I love Jesus because He first loved me.

The main thing that I can do now that I couldn't do before is get back on the wagon when I fall off of it. I used to have a big problem with ALL or NOTHING thinking. Before if I messed up I would think the day, the week, the month, or the whole diet plan was shot and over. Now, I can really just say that I made a mistake by eating whatever and carry on...not starting over tomorrow or Monday. Immediately. It took some practice. But, now I catch myself in the negative you blew it type of thinking and put a stop to it. I stop that negative thinking by telling myself it was only one minute, one snack or one meal. It was a weak moment and a mistake I made; but it is over and I am back on track. NOW.

Among many, many changes, I can: wear size 4P consistently, look great in a skirt, enjoy dressing for just about any occasion. And yes, spend an hour on the treadmill or doing kettlebells and feel invigorated rather than wiped out!

I can go up stairs and run for the bus without losing my breath. I can walk long distances and feel great afterward.

Stay awake all day and moving. I use to have a 2-3 hour nap during the day or early evening. I was exhausted all the time. Now I am awake all day and not sitting on the coach because it took too much energy to do anything.

fit into smaller clothes, run four miles without blinking an eye, haul the wet clothes up 10 steps then carry them out to the backyard to hand them out to dry, make better food choices, and well the list can go on and on but I will stop there.

I have never been able to do chin ups. Ever. I remember how I felt in front of the 8th grade gym class when we were going for a personal best and I could do... yep... zero. With a lot of work over the last 18 months and some help from Sparkpeople, going on 37 years old, I can now do 4 sets of 5... I try to increase a single set by one rep each week.

I also remember once about 5 years go dropping and doing push ups when someone jokingly challenged me to do 20... I remember how at #6 I thought wow this is really hard, and at #11 I physically could not lift myself up again. I can now do 40 straight with no problem.

I can grab a 10' basketball rim, haven't done that in 20 years.

And oh yeah, most recently, I can bench press more than my body weight... I was really happy when I finally hit that goal a few weeks ago.

I can swim a mile--5280 feet, NOT a swimmers' mile--in 30 minutes doing the backstroke. When I first started it took me an hour to swim less than half a mile.

I can also do pull ups now, which shocked the heck out of me. It's not part of my regular routine, just something I try for fun every once in a while.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

For me(starting on Jan 1,2013):

0 chin-ups to 10 chin-ups in one set

1 pushup to 20 pushups in one set

2 miles at a 4mph pace on the treadmill(and bad shinsplints) to finishing 5K in 26 minutes

nothing impressive,but considering where I started from I am pleased. Other minor accomplishments include not getting winded after climbing a flight of stairs and not sweating when I eat.
Reading about people's improvements and seeing progress on their little meters is motivating to me.
