I started my weight loss journey on 1/12/10. It took about 15 months, but I'm finally at my goal weight! Best advise I have is to surround yourself with people who have your best interest at heart...not people who will sabotage your diet and healthy lifestyle efforts.

I just turned 42 and have learned to love working out, running, and eating healthy. I'd say I'm addicted to it now. I'm enjoying my new lifestyle and all that it entails...new wardrobe, energy, etc. I've learned I can do anything I set my mind to. I enjoy the challenge!

Here's a link to one of my favorite motivational videos. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmVdfFKiaLU
