This morning I got up before 6am to head out the door to run with wonderful women. Last year I could run right along side of them easily. This year I was left behind within a few hundred feet of beginning. What is great is that I am okay with that. I am at a very different place this year. My body is different! I kept on running at my own pace and then decided at the end to even add a little distance onto my run. I enjoyed being alone with my thoughts and simply pushing my body to keep going. It sure felt good to feel the sweat dripping and my breath getting a little heavy. I must do this more often. I feel GREAT!!!

So I’ve only lost a few pounds but I am feeling SO much better about myself. I am walking a lot and bike riding. I will add in more running as the pounds drop off. Carrying around an extra 30 pounds is tiring, not to mention hard on the body! I have done great the past 3 days and will keep it going for the rest of my life. That’s the plan and I’m sticking to it!!! My old healthy self is starting to shine through again! I love it!!!

I was very humbled to be asked to share my journey with a group of ladies in Saratoga Springs last night. I didn’t just talk but we all shared our experiences. There are a dozen of us with the same goal: HEALTH AND HAPPINESS! This is exactly what I needed to get me fully dedicated to living healthy again. I really want to set a good example for them of healthy living. I need to do what I teach! I am excited to see my clothes fit again and to feel GOOD!My BEFORE picture!

I can sit around all day miserable because I am 20 some pounds heavier than I want to be or I can choose to ignore the numbers on the scale and just be happy. Yes, the food continues to win but the exercise is coming back. Slowly but it is there. Will I ever be the size I really like being, sure! Will it happen tomorrow? NO! In 6 months? I don’t know. What I do know is that I NEED to be HAPPY NOW!
The scale is put away for now. New pictures were taken today to remind myself that I am still beautiful even at a heavier than perfect weight. I need to love myself the way I am today!
I have a man that loves me no matter what size I am!!
I am blessed to be a mother of 5 amazing children that love me!
