"One year=141.6 Pounds Lost!"

“Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't, I give myself reasons why I can”.

I can not believe it that it has been one year this passed Saturday that I began my Weight loss journey. Many of you probably are wondering if this journey has been easy.. I can honestly say that I have had some difficult times and I have had some set backs, but the key is to NEVER GIVE UP!! I will not and refuse to let this fat take over my life anymore! The times that I have fallen I have dusted my self off and continue in my journey, because I have worked to hard to let anyone or anything stand in my way.
Here I am happy showing off the skirt that I used to wear when I started my weight loss journey, 141.6 pounds ago.
2011 I thought it was going to be a great year., but so far it has turn out to be a very difficult and sad year. Back in February we lost our precious hairy son Diego which I remember so many times exercising and crying because it would hurt so much. But I did not give up. Later on we lost our car because of someone elses mistake. Dean and loved our car. Shortly after that we heard the news of my mothers illness, which affected me so much,. But I did not give up. Dean and I  believed that our trials were over for a while ,since we had one month where we had some peace and laughter in our lives., and then back in June 2011 Deans father was found dead in  his home and our journey as change dramatically! And that is putting it in a nice way.
Through it all I continue to BELIEVE that I am worthy to be healthy and treat my body with respect and love. I can honestly say for the first time in my life I am learning to love my self.  I have learned that the healthier that I am the happier I will be. I feel that I am no longer trapped in my body that finally I am getting my wings back. I have a long ways to go still to get to my goal, but I know that if I continue to focus, push forward, believe and love myself I will get there.
This passed year so many big and little things have helped me stay focus and helped me loose the 141.6 pounds. I wanted to share with you my faithful readers few of the things that have helped me stay focus and reminds me to continue in my weight loss journey.
 My favorite perfume reminds me to never stop believing in myself.
My little Key Chain running shoe reminds me to stay active.
My bottle of water reminds me to keep nurturing my body.

“The groundwork of all happiness is health”.
 It is never too late to start your healthy journey. If I can do it so can you... Just Believe!
