" I may not be there yet, but I am closer than I was yesterday"

It has been 2 years since I began my weight loss journey. When I look back I see a girl that was mentally, physically and spiritually broken. I had lost hope and faith in myself. I was dying!
Now after 2 years and losing 191 pounds I no longer feel a slave to my own body. This journey has not been easy but it has been so worth it. Not everything has been how I planned to be, and I have had some small setbacks; such gaining few pounds here and there but I also know that Rome was not built over night, and as long as I keep pushing forward and believing that I can do this, and never give up, that is all that matters and at the end of the day I answer to only Me “Marjorie” no one else!
Throughout this journey I have learn that each of us must take responsibility for our own bodies and stop blaming others for our own choices. I have also learn that each day, each breath I take is a gift that I should not take for granted  and that I will not have perfect weeks every week.
I have to take this time to thank all my blog readers for giving me strength and for believing that I will get to my goal. When all is set and done I will have lost 300 pounds!!!! I cannot wait for that dayJ
Through this journey I have met so many wonderful people that I would have never met if I would have not started this journey. Some have picked me up when I was having a bad day, some have just been there to listen and some have cheered me along my journey.  I must publicly thank my awesome husband who is my biggest fan, who celebrates with me no matter if I lose weight or not.

 I am the happiest I have ever been. I am finally getting my life back!

Let's work together and take control of our bodies. What are you going to do to fight and beat this obesity?

 Don't ever stop believing that you can not lose weight!
