After a lot of thought I have decided I will not be posting about my weight-loss anymore and will be closing this blog. I will be making a link to my past postings on my homepage but I will not be updating it any further. This does not mean I have given up but only that I have closed one door to open another.
So, this is where it ends; on Entry 390.
This blog has helped me grow in so many ways over the past 3 years and I am now on to a new venture. It's not good-bye, it's see you later!
Since this is my last posting for my weight-loss, I will inform you guys on how I am doing. I have been LIVING! My world used to revolve around weight-loss but I have come to make it less of a priority and more of an accomplishment. After losing the bulk of my weight I have come to be more comfortable in my own skin. I take on life one day at a time and have learned to not put so much pressure on myself. I will always want to lose more weight and will always have that desire to be better. I now know I am able to succeed with whatever I set my mind to do. For now I am just living my life to the best of my ability. I have learned to cut out the negative and focus on all the positive.
There are certain things that I will never stop doing because they have now become a habit; for example, drinking almost a gallon of water a day, using extra virgin olive oil instead of butter or vegetable oil and being more active. This process has changed my life drastically for the better and I will never forget the support from friends, strangers and family. I have come a long way but as far as this blog goes, this will be the end. Thank you all for the encouragement and motivation. I will never forget it. You will all hold a special place in my heart.
I will still continue to work towards my goal weight; I just will not be blogging about it anymore. I feel good about this decision and hope for a successful future. As for my new chapter, keep checking in for new photo blog updates. I will be posting lifestyle shots often as well as photo-shoots that I have done with clients. I have so much fun in doing all of this and find much enjoyment! I cannot wait for what waits ahead.
Over and out!
Thanks for reading.
