<-- Not my picture or cake. I found it on Google images and I thought it was appropriate! Exactly one year ago today I changed my life for the better. WHAT a roller coaster it has been but I am so proud of how far I have come. Today is a good day. This time last year I was sitting down on the computer gearing myself up to write my first blog post at 338 pounds. At that time I had only dreamed that it was possible and honestly I felt like I would never get to where I am now. For once in my life I have made my dreams become a reality. Now I am 100 pounds down (or more) and am writing my 311th entry! It is crazy how time flies but I could not be happier with where I am at right now in life. I feel wonderful and am full of energy. I have been staying on course and hope to shake of the rest I have to lose in this next coming year. Like they say; 1 year ago you are going to wish you started TODAY.
I still have been having my lemon water first thing in the morning, staying within my 1,200 calorie daily limit, drinking 5 cups of green tea and 75oz of water. I have also been kicking butt with my exercise. I have been staying on top of things without whining or complaining. I am back to making it my lifestyle and I know I can only progress from here. I knew my mood would perk up as the weather got nicer! This weekend it's supposed to be cooler and they say it might even snow a little but I think if it does it won't last long! We are officially in May! I also still have yet to step on the scale and honestly I don't care what it says! I know that what I am doing now is benefiting me and I have been enjoying having a healthy lifestyle. I am not sure when I will weigh myself next. I will probably give it another month until my curiosity has me curious! lol - I have been going for walks all this week. I went for 2 walks on Monday and I went on THREE walks yesterday! I don't think I will go for a walk today because it is cooler outside and has been raining on and off. I plan to do an elliptical/recumbent bike workout later or I might do this work out my friend showed me online called hip-hop abs. It looks fun! Saturday my Mom and I are going out of town to just bum around and I plan to cheat. I am not sure with what but I know we plan to go out for a nice lunch :-)
