My healthiness journey started in Sept 2010 when I saw a picture of myself and didn't recognize the girl staring back at me. I joined Weight Watchers and started running. This is my story - I have lost 70 pounds, run 2 marathons and gained a new appreciation for what my body can do! Join me on this journey, won't you?
So today I was going through some old pictures and uploading pics from our recent trip to Duluth. Wow. That is all I can say. I was floored by what I saw. Last year at this same time we went on a family trip up to Brainerd. I was curious what the difference was from then to now. Wow. Again, that is all I can muster. I knew I had worked hard and made some pretty big changes - but wow. I knew I was fat, I knew I was not as happy as I could be, but wow. I turned 36 years old last Monday and I am honestly probably the healthiest and fittest I have been in a really long time. Heck, I could even be in better shape than I was in my prime in high school/college. I put a family pic from this years trip and a family pic from last years trip side by side. Take a look - and tell me if you can muster something other than "wow". (I also think its pretty funny that we are each holding the same child we were a year ago and they were both just as cooperative!)
