Well, it's half-way through 2013 now, so I thought I might need to change this. . . I lost 50+ pounds by June of 2012. While I've been maintaining that loss, I've struggled to move beyond it. However, after a year of ups and downs, I'm found that determination that helped start this journey. It's my grand design to tout a 100lb lost by the end of 2013.


2012 is the year it all changes for me. I will FINALLY graduate college in May. I want this year to reflect that I am in charge of my life and that I can make permanent positive changes. I'm looking forward to moving to a new place with old friends, celebrating my husband's and my 10 year wedding anniversary, and starting a new career. Also, I'm going to lose weight and above all learn to live a happy, healthy life. I am doing this!!
