Well, it's been quite some time since I've added an entry. I just went back through and read all my old ones and they are really invaluable to me. It solidifies my thoughts, actions and path. I really was meant for this, right here, right now. You see on May 29th, it will be my first sparkversary and I am hoping to be down 100 pounds by then. I am currently at 93. I know its asking a lot, but I've worked so hard to get to this point and I know I can do it. Its a positive goal, not a negative daunting one.

The food tracking really has been key. When I don't track, I can tell. And I have learned so much about my self in the last year. It's been such an amazing journey, I can't even put it into words. This summer, I have a "bucket list" for my kids and I. I am SOOO excited for school to be out. Things I couldn't or wouldn't do before, I am charging ahead on and ready to tackle now. Last summer was a summer full of "the first time I ____ in a LONG time". It was a great feeling. I plan on continuing to do things I'd forgotten how to or just couldn't.

I wish I had journaled more though. This year has gone really quickly and the passing of my sister has just completely messed with all sense of reality. I was truly concerned that would be the thing that threw me completely off track, but it hasn't. It hasn't because I know that her passing was a direct affect of an unhealthy lifestyle. In her memory I eat healthy whole foods, exercise and do my best to soak in everything going on around me, good and bad. When people ask me when I am going to stop my diet, I vehemently answer this is not a diet, its my lifestyle.

Here's to a successful 3 weeks!!! ONE HUNDRED HERE I COME!

Fuzzy pic, but this was me yesterday, 93 pounds down at 236 pounds. Approximately 50 more to go.
