Last week I surpassed a large-ish milestone...but before I get to that, let me back up.

As December 2012 was winding down, I was feeling, for lack of a better phrase, real yucky. Physical yuck, mental yuck, emotional yuck. I knew that I needed to do something, something to jump start my system...

So, I decided to try a detox (more on that in a later post). On January 1st I started changing my eating habits, while doing yoga a few times a week. I started weighing myself, and pounds started to fall off!

Then, it hit me. About a week and a half in, I decided that 2013 will be the year that I lose this cursed emotional baggage that puts me just shy of 60 pounds overweight. I decided just like that, and this time, I had the strength to stick with it.

So, I joined a gym, and started running again. Then I learned how to lift weights.

Last week, I surpassed the 20 pounds lost mark. 21.

I'm still far from where I would like to be, but proud that I have made it this far. I am a work in progress, and I feel like I'm making strides toward becoming a better, stronger version of myself!


  1. You rock! Keep on rockin'. Wish you lived closer so you could kick my ass off the couch. :-)

  2. Awesome! I am so proud of you I could burst! this is a huge turnaround in your outlook and where you have been mentally for so long. Very positive move forward. As the pictures above prove!!!

  3. Bit late with this but just had to say well done! You look happy and lovely. X
