|This was me almost exactly 2 years ago.|
Luckily, I didn't wallow in the anger. Within a few short weeks of this picture being taken - I decided to turn it around. To rid myself of the burden of the weight and to embrace a new life for myself and my family.
Food journals. Bike and Felicity (and Sliders. and Gossip Girl). Learning to Run. Setbacks and Fresh Starts. Goals and Failures. Falling down and getting back up again.
So here I sit - 2 years later and 40lbs lighter. I've crossed a fair few finish lines in that time. Finish lines I never envisioned. 5K. 10K. Half Marathon. Fun Run. Full Marathon. I've embraced life and, while I still have a few pounds to go - I'm being smarter and trying to live healthier.
One thing's for sure...I'm not going back there. Ever.
|Me, the day before my Marathon in October. Fat girl no more.|
