One year ago today I decided that I was going to change my lifestyle and start living a healthier life. I didn't do anything drastic like have surgery or sign up for a program. I wasn't buying in to weightloss shakes or joining a gym. I didn't go out and get a personal trainer. I decided that I was capable of finding out information for myself on how to eat healthier foods, how much was enough for me, what my body needed to do to get in shape, and so I did just that. I ate less and I moved more. I am healthier now than I've ever been in my entire life. I weigh less than I did in middle school and though I'm no toothpick, nor do I wish to be, I am comfortable in my own skin. I like the way I look and feel and overall my change in health has improved me not only physcially but mentally. I am stronger and happier. I have done things in the last year I never even knew I could or thought I wanted to. I actually enjoy running now and ran my first race last month. I even did it in a pretty decent amount of time for a first try! I just want everyone to know that no matter what your goals are, you are capable of them and as long as you are determined to reach them, you will. I truely believe, if I can then anyone can.
