And people actually read it.
Can you believe that?! A full YEAR?!
I sure as shit can't.
I went back, just now, and looked at my very first post. That was fun. Don't know what the crap I was thinking, going to lose 20 pounds in 90 days, psshhhhtttttt. But it was interesting to read what was going on in my noggin back then and realizing how I've changed since then.
Ohhhh, how I've grown.
But not around the middle!!!
I was all sad sack over the Xmas holidays because I knew my one year blogiversary was coming up and I was only going to show a 2 lb loss.
But I'm proud to say that as of this morning I am at 150, about 9 lbs from when I started this one long year ago. And its the same weight that I weighed when we went on our honeymoon, two years ago, which I thought and felt I looked all fab-tastic back then.
So I'm calling the 9 lbs in a year a win.
I'm also calling the better eating habits, the fact that I actually run now *gasp*(ran my first 5K last Oct! woop woop), and Sweet Baby Jesus's I feel soooo much better, all big ol' WINS in my book.
This blog started off as a place I could catalog my new health efforts. To keep myself accountable. To actually 'see' what I was doing to change. Somewhere along the way it turned into my mind wondering into type, to writing about emotions, family, funnies, trips (lord knows we traveled last year), and problems. It became a release. And it became a place to make some wonderful friends! I've always loved to write. And have always done so much better in my life when I could write something down.
I love doing this. I love blogging. I love reading blogs and finding inspiration. And providing inspiration, if I do ;-). I wouldn't trade it for the world.
Thanks y'all for reading and sticking with me, and thanks to all the newbies too! You guys rock my world!
And I hope you'll keep on a-readin' as the next year unfolds (and the next year, and the next)!! I'm sure there will be some laughs, cries, insanity moments, etc that you won't want to miss!!!
Thank you Ryan. Thank you very much. Means the world to me. You're hot.
