Oh! That's like the nicest thing I've ever read!
Happy birthday!!


A handfull of years ago, I started jogging. I wasn't fast, and at first I could only go one block at a time but eventually I built up to being able to jog a mile all at once!

This was a HUGE accomplishment for me. I've ALWAYS been overweight and I can remember back to elementary & middle school where I was always one of the last to come in from the mile run.

I felt SO great and would love love love to have that feeling again. It was so empowering to think "I'm running! I'm actually running! And I like it!!"


Congrats on finishing your first year of law school too!

I just wanted to write a little something to you guys today to let you know how thankful I am to have all of you to listen while I vent, comfort me and to cheer on my successes as I cheer you on. Every single one of you is really inspirational to me and has played a crucial role in this weightloss journey I've been on.

I just came back from a 2.5 mile run and honestly, when I am running I feel like I own the world. I don't wear headphones, I don't do anything fancy, I just go out and move my feet, one after the other and I run. I'm not fast, I just go. I love to listen to the street and the children and the birds and the wind in the trees. It just makes me feel alive. This last week has been really hard, I've had three finals, with one more tomorrow, and they mark the end of my first year of law school. I've been so buried deep in it that I've barely had time to realize what a milestone it is and how far I've come in the last year. It's been difficult for sure but now, when I run outside, I feel so alive and beautiful and like I can take on anything no matter what. its not easy but I can overcome whatever it is that comes my way. I just want to wish, on this day with wishes for me, that wish for you, that all of you find beauty and strength in your lives. I want to give you this feeling that I feel. That you have helped me to feel.

Sure I have a lot of self-doubt and angst and anger with myself that I am working through. But it will be there whether I lose the weight or not. At this point, no matter what I am feeling today, I know that one day I can overcome it though. And you can to.

This has been a bit jumbled and disjointed but please take my sincere wishes and thanks to all of you. I just felt good and like this is a big day for me and I wanted to share it with you.
