Sometimes I forget how far I’ve come and focus on how hard where I’m going is.  It’s hard to not stress about what’s ahead.  It’s hard to not think about how much there’s still left to do.  I’m a stresser.  That’s just simply what I do.

I had to put this picture together as a reminder to myself what I was able to accomplish in one year.  I did NOT make a weight loss resolution.  I just decided that I had had enough.  There’s still a long road ahead through the next 40 but I know I can do it.  I know I can because I have and I did not do it in an unhealthy, gain it all back way.

I changed myself lifestyle inside and out.

Emptied the cabinets of all the easy but bad foods and started eating clean while I got rid of the negative people who weighed down on my spirit and surrounded myself with those who really cared.  2012 was a year of realizing what was really good for me and now I feel like no one can stop my shine!
