Ahh.....the monday after New Years....where I have seen this before? Oh ya, last year!
1 Year ago after new years I was in the worst health of my life, at 425lbs and 21 years old I was a ticking time bomb....in my first year of the 'new me' I think I have made tremendous strides....I have of course had my ups and downs and have been on and off the wagon a few times, but I can look back and say 1 year later I have definitely changed for the better.

With the new year comes a re-commitment to health and happiness for myself.....my 2010 goal is to be under 300lbs by the end. I have had some self-realization that I was far too aggressive in my 2009 goals and have done some re-evaluation in determining a realistic, practical, attainable goal......

2010 here I come!

    I belong to weight watchers. The leader in my meeting tells us not to set our goals to high, that way we don't set our self up for failure.

    Great job so far! Just looking at your page is SO inspiring. You were fantastic in 2009, and you'll be phenomenal in 2010 :)
    I saw that you're studying to be a teacher... what do you want to teach? I am going back to school to be a teacher, with the aim of teaching high school English, though I've recently felt a pull toward something less-traditional, like outdoor ed.
    Anyway, I hope this finds you well! Glad to have you along on this journey.

    Congrats on all of your success so far! I know how you felt, that is exactly how I felt 6 weeks ago, a ticking time bomb. I feared at the rate I put on weight I wouldn't be around to see my 30th birthday. I think you have a very realistic and attainable goal for 2010. I wish you all the success, and if you ever need motivation, I'm excellent at it!
