Starting a new year always seems so renewing and hopeful... I always feel like I can accomplish anything on January 1.
I think about were I was one year ago or six months ago... 264 pounds, couldn't run for 1 minute, consuming way too many calories on a daily basis, and burning very few. Today I am under 200 pounds (I weighed in this morning at 192), I can run for 6 miles, I watch my calorie intake and I exercise... these accomplishments are real. I have done things I didn't know I could and that makes this new year so much more hopeful because these aren't the same old resolutions I've made every year since my 12th birthday. This year I am already half way there (over half way there if we are talking about weight).
Raise your fruit smoothies this New Year morning and say cheers... to the new you that has already accomplished so much and is looking forward to a wonderful year ahead.
Thanks for your support in the past year and I look forward to reading about all your successes in 2010.
