Happy 3 years to ME!!!

Hard to believe.  Seems like yesterday.  Couldn't imagine life w/o it.  Can't believe I've done it.  It's a lifestyle not a diet.  

YES!  I successfully made it to my 3 year mark.  Three years since I started this journey to better health.  I'm w/in 5 lbs of my goal weight (fighting HARD to get back to goal).  I'm still personal training with Dan.  I continue to do cardio 4-5 times/week.  I'm training for my second 1/2 marathon.  And......

I LOVE IT.  Everyday.  Every time I look in the mirror.  Every time I look at old photos.  Every time I go shopping for clothes and things fit.

I'm not sure if my journey is over and this is my life or if this is my lifelong journey.  Whichever, I'M IN!!!

Countdown to 3 years...

Yesterday at Body Solutions, where I workout with my Personal Trainer (yep, still Dan after all these years), one client introduced herself and said she was there because of ME and MY BLOG.  Are you kidding!!!  She further said, "you should know you are inspiring people you've never met."  WOW! How cool is that!!

This conversation prompted me to visit my blog today as it's been sitting out there with no new entries since last February.  Hard to believe a year has passed.  And I finished that half marathon I was training for last year and I'm running it again this year!  I'm still personal training with Dan, still watching & journaling what I eat, doing my cardio 5 times/week....some things have not changed at all.  I didn't even realize until I read my blog that just 3 weeks until my 3 year anniversary of losing 50 lbs.  Now that's something pretty cool too.
