All the changes in my life are really starting to pay off. Last summer I weighed in at 165- my highest ever weight. This summer I hopped on the scale to see 140!
I attribute a lot of this to going to the gym and making those smart and healthy decisions, but the major factor was breaking free from a lot of stress I was carrying around.
I am spending a lot of time outside, walking the dogs, tanning, and just feeling inspired by my surroundings.
I don't count calories anymore, but I've settled into a comfortable routine of measuring out portions (:
I try to keep at least one kind of fruit in the house and incorporate it into my first meal of the day, everyday. Starting the day out right really makes a difference!

My goals for this month are focused primarily on other aspects of my life, but I'd still like to share them with you (:
* Find my own apartment
* Find a second job to finish out summer
* Get my own vehicle
* Stay positive, and wish the past farewell with a smile (:
* Keep writing and staying inspired
* Keep making healthy food decisions
* Get outside as much as possible!

P.S. I'm always looking for positive, motivating spark members to be friends with! Most of my real world friends and family do not know about my goals. I love this site because there are so many encouraging people on it! :)
