Today is a special day for me. A year ago today, I started on my weight loss journey. In one year I have lost 102 pounds. That I was able to do that was surprising enough. What was far MORE surprising was what I gained. I gained strength. I can lift, pull, push, carry so much more than I could a year ago. I gained confidence. I smile in my pictures now. I don't try and fade into the background. I gained knowledgr . New recipes, new exercises, new hiking trails.... I hiked home from work this morning through the woods and didn't hit a road until I got to my driveway. I gained friends and supporters on Facebook and especially here on SparkPeopke. I wouldn't say it has been easy, but it has been wonderful. I wouldn't trade this experience for anything. And today I set forth on the journey of my next healthy year. I can't wait to find out how much I will lose and how much I will gain.
