This month is the one year anniversary of my decision to get healthy, to be patient with myself. To really do it this time, to have some fun & cause a bit of chaos along the way. YEAH! I managed to do all. Especially mastering the chaos thing, I am a pro now ; )

I've lost 35 pounds (TOM,water gain, blah, blah, blah! would say 37)

It's been tough. I'm not gonna lie. If anyone says that losing weight & keeping it off is easy, well, their probably a Politician : ) So, one Year. I did not lose it biggest loser style. I worked on who I am inside, as well as out. I really struggled with myself & my self confidence. I had to learn that I was worth it. Had to learn that I can be a strong person, I had to find that voice inside of me, that for so long wanted to get out.(No, not the voices inside my head, Sorry! I was gettin' a bit sappy) Had to decide that I wanted to be happy,more confident. That I wanted to try new things & not be so afraid. I have learned to stand up for myself. Learned how important support is.

I have alot of you to thank for the support. Some of you have read my life story via, "G.I.JANE'S" blog & sent more support & encouragement than any one girl could ever wish for : ) For that I send out big virtual hugs & thanks. I appreciate my new friends just as much.

Okay, as my Diet-aversary present I want you all to stop where you are when you think of me, or run across a comment in one of our teams, or well, if you start doubting yourselves, I want you to Stop & do some sorta exercise, or drink a cup of water. See these types of tricks work for me. I will do they same if I think of you,etc. Oh, good Lord! I am never gonna get any rest & am gonna constantly be drinking water. Someone give me some Midol & some boots. The sappiness is gettin' deep in here : )~
