***it has been a good year and 2013 can only get better!!! PIC HEAVY***

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

2012 has blessed me so much! What began as a rough year - being sued by my ex-husband- soon turned into positive after positive. I won my case - TAKE THAT SUCKA! and in the same week of getting the verdict, received a 3 grade level promotion and bought THIS house

*By the way, the Corvette is the previous homeowners. I am balling on a budget!

We closed on our house on the 20th of April. Soon after we threw a housewarming party and I seen a pic from that night on May 6th that horrified me

Please pay no attention to my Uncle Dale. He had three too many to drink!

I was not aware I had gained so much weight. On May 21st I began my weight-loss journey. Two weeks in I had only lost two pounds, but I was already feeling better and in control. Here i am at my cousin's wedding

After that day I decided that I needed to kick it up a notch and the best way to do that was to registerfor one race a month. I felt that would give me something to work towards and was a measurable way to mark my growth. From July to October I ran five races and reached my personal best of 36:19

On Aug 4th I got the best feeling ever when Derrell asked me to marry him. I was so excited that I responded by asking HIM to marry ME! He laughed a bit but we both said "yes!" Here is the ring

So since August I have had even greater motivation to stick with my plan because I have to fit into my La Sposa gown that my mother and I are spending a very pretty penny on. With that being said I ran a virtual 5k this morning to ring in the New Year and although I didn't beat my PB, I did a great job considering I haven't ran much since October

After eating breakfast and running the 5k, I weighed in and I am OFFICIALLY down 50 LBS!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy! I managed to not only survive December but to enjoy food, family and fun without missing sight of my goal. I know in my heart that as amazing as 2012 was, 2013 is only going to be better!
