It’s still so hard to believe I started this journey at 220 lbs. I looked in the mirror in January 2013 and realized how unhealthy I looked, and was. I vowed to never allow myself to be that way again. Now - almost a year later I am 40 lbs lighter, but I’m still not done. Honestly I hate going to the gym. I hate cardio. Weights aren’t too bad. But honestly it’s the most amazing feeling in the world when I’m done. I LOVE waking up sore. I love seeing the progress. The next vow I’m going to take is to step off the scale. I’ve become rather obsessed with checking my weight almost every day, and I don’t want weight to be the focus. I want health.
