Keep Moving Forward!

Update (11/8/13): I passed 100 pounds lost this week! Running is getting a little easier and more enjoyable, too. I have another 30-40 pounds left to go to a healthy weight, but I'll never be done working to stay that way.

Update (9/2/13): I have lost 83.5 pounds from my start weight in February. Even better is that I have really changed my lifestyle. I still have about 50 pounds to lose, but I know that I will continue to get healthier, stronger, and more fit.

(2/2013): I need to lose a lot of weight and get in shape to be healthy. Unfortunately, I've been down this road before. I lost over 100 pounds in 2001-2002 and was within 10 pounds of my final goal. Somehow, I managed to find all the weight that I'd lost along with a few more for good measure. I never thought I'd be here again, looking down that long road to a healthy weight.

P.S. now that you've hit goal, it would be so awesome so see an updated progress pic! Your transformation was already amazing, but it would be awesome to see your full circle transformation. Only if you want to of course LOL! ;) No pressure. emoticon

I saw your reply to Stephanie's blog. She touched my heart too. Sorry you are struggling with food right now. One of the strangest parts of this journey is that our success in overcoming overeating takes so much of the comfort out of eating for comfort. I want to feel comfort. Food used to give it to me quickly and consistently. Finding new ways to feel comfort is hard. The best I can offer is a (((hug))). Think about how nice it would be to have your life in your own control. If it were true, would you feel safe? Would you be proud of yourself for regaining control? Would you feel hopeful? Would you feel less scared? Would you feel more powerful? Look back. Isn't it awesome to feel like that?
Hope you feel better soon.
