Monday Memories

As the new year rolls in I have been reevaluating my goals. Mainly my goal to living a healthy life. I want to not dwell on the past and what may have been or what I could have done. I want to be purposeful in the lives I interact with. I want to have a different mindset in relation to food and exercise so that I can live and serve my God longer. Towards that end I embarked on a journey last year to lose weight. I began in April and have thus far lost about 65 pounds. I still have a ways to go and part of my healthier life has been silencing my own very loud, negative voice that yells in my head. It has been very noisy lately as I got off my plan and resorted to habits in the midst of stress.

I decided to proclaim it to the world-well at least those that read my blog- that I am proud of what I have accomplished and I am going to continue in this trek. Here are some photos of my progress: my before...

I invite you to spur me on, ask about my progress, send my information that may be beneficial to me. In short, be a part of helping me on my journey.

I am excited to see what this year holds (even if it doesn't mean I lose any weight), there is a wedding this summer and my half century celebration...life is good!
