I just changed my page background to a really fun graphic I cribbed from a friend. The text, 'Ijo ope mi ree!', is from the Yoruba language and loosely translates as, Here's my Thank You dance, and is commonly used in praise and worship of God. Well, this is my Thank You Blog.
Start date: January 9th 2011
Start weight 312lbs
Current date: January 3rd 2012
Current weight 234lbs
But that doesn't tell the whole story. Sure, I'm almost 80lbs lighter. But I'm also stronger, healthier, happier and more at peace with myself. I've learnt so much about my body, I've avoided unnecessary health problems, I've called a truce with my food cravings, I've acquired a love of salads, I've learned to love exercise for it's own sake, not just what it does for me, gained more self confidence...
So much to be thankful for already, and looking forward to more dancing in 2012!
