But things changed in the Spring of 2010 and since then I have lost more than 70 pounds! Oh, I still have a very long way to go, but on that day last Spring, at the age of 45, as unhealthy as I had ever been, and my self esteem at zero, I had reached rock bottom. My weight loss goals seemed overwhelming and unattainable. I could fake it well, but inside, both physically
Through a series of "AHA" moments that would require entire blog posts of their own (!), on that day last Spring, I set a new course for my life and my health.
I hate looking at "before" pictures of myself, and have very few of them actually, but thought I should post something here for posterity....
I'm still a work in progress and I want to use this blog to document the vegan life that I love so much, share my weight loss successes (and even the disappointments), share my journey of going from a sedentary chick to a girl - dare I say it - that actually could be enjoying exercising (but still doesn't do it enough), share interesting health and nutrition information that sparks my interest, post some of the yummy vegan food that I make, and finally, if I am honest, there may just be a picture or two of my beloved four-legged children.
See...I just had to do it! :)
I'll talk to you tomorrow!!
