Stepping into the New Year!

Wow it has been quite a year! Here is where I started
I wasn't even considering changing my life at that point. Until I saw that picture. I think we have a tendency to ignore the signs and tell ourselves it's not so bad, until you see a picture that is! So January 21st I started my journey. I couldn't even walk a mile then. My legs hurt, I was huffing and puffing. I was also still smoking then. I slowly started working out, eating better and the weight came off. I quit smoking and I felt fantastic! I have had my moments of self sabatoge for sure. But for the most part I knew this was a change for my life!
Here is half way through the year in May:
I have hit a huge plateau now, but I'm not too worried. I continue to choose healthy over not 80% of the time. There have been few times this year I have felt deprived of anything. I feel so much better then I did a year ago!! I was just living waiting to die I think. Now I'm living to live! To keep from dying!! It's a great feeling!!
Here is now...my Christmas presents:
I think the best gift I gave and recieved this year though was me!! I made myself a priority this year and in turn I was able to give a happier me to my loving partner and my wonderful son. I promised them every year from here out they would get a healthy me! They really seemed to like that! What do I want to achieve in the coming year. I just want to keep on going. To keep succeeding. If I happen to lose more I will be thrilled. I want to accomplish my Avon walk this year! I'm so excited for that challenge. I just want to live even more then I did last year! For the first time ever I am looking forward to the new year!! Happy Happy New Year to you my friends. I'm so happy to have met you this year and I'm so excited to continue this journey with you in 2011!!
