:: Celebrating a year ::

It's officially been a year since I started on the biggest loser journey. As I look at my progress thus far (50lbs), I never would have thought I would be able to do this. For the past 8 years, I've tried many times to "diet" which always resulted in ... well, failure. So why is this time different? Why do i know for a fact, that I'm never going back? Why am I confident that I will be healthy for the remainder of my life?

Because now I understand. I understand that good health is priceless. And I don't ever want to regret not taking care of myself. Life is fragile and the body is not limitless, I have to do my best to preserve it.

I've also found a system that really works for me. I don't feel deprived, I am nourished. I don't feel hungry, I am strong. I don't feel like I'm losing out, because I look forward to every meal. I'm not greedy, I'm disciplined. Because I've never felt so good - how can I ever go back?

This year is one of the greatest years of my life. It marks the turning point one of the biggest conversion points in my life - like Paul on the way to Damascus. This is a brand new me.

As I roll into the next year, it's going to be another huge year for me. I'm going to train for and run my first marathon. Who would've thought I would sign up for a marathon. Nothing is impossible.

Hello, me.
