Today marks exactly one year that I've been making healthy changes. I started my weight loss journey one year ago with a heavier body and a heavier heart. While I know I have a long way to go...I realize I am making strides!
One year ago today, I was wearing a size 26/28 pants, 3XL shirt and 3XL scrubs for work. Today I am wearing a 16/18 in pants, an XL (or L!) in shirts and an XL scrubs!
One year ago today, I had no sense of portions or what a 'healthy' meal looked like. Now I (more often than not) eat them every day!
One year ago today, I got winded just walking upstairs to my condo and I couldn't run...AT ALL. Now, I am able to run for almost 2 miles and feel GREAT AFTER!
One year ago today, I was sad and was having a lot of issues with stress and anxiety. Today I am feeling great and am more comfortable with myself!
I have made so many positive changes! This last year has been awesome and although the last couple months I've been sort of falling off the wagon and not motivated, I know that I have changed for the better and this is a temporary setback! I'm reaffirming again today that I have lost over 50 pounds and I am 1/3 of the way to my goal! I CAN DO THIS!
I'm still doing C25K and am finishing up week 6 soon! I never thought I'd make it that far! After week one I was pretty sure I was going to quit...but I persevered and I'm LOVING it. Who knows! Maybe running is in my future! Maybe it was my destiny all along!?
I'm raising a glass (of water!) to this year and many more happy, healthy ones to come! CHEERS!
Let's have a little comparison...

I am so grateful to my lovely blog followers for sticking with me on this journey so far. I love you all and am looking forward to another year of blog mania!!! :D
