I did it!

My favorite picture of this weekend

Saturday morning my Mom and I walked our first 5k to support the Houston's Women's Shelter; 23rd Annual Race Against Violence.  It was cold, rainy, and very windy but we finished in one hour and 8 minutes.  In the beginning, I was nervous about being the biggest person there.  Eventually I said, "screw everyone" because I was at least putting forth the effort. 

The cold front AND the rain coming in.

Mom and The Fat Mom

It felt good to finish, but I felt like I was holding Mom back.  She was scared that we would be last while hundreds of people walked past us.  I told her she could leave me; she refused.  At one point I told her that I didn't want to disappoint her (by walking so slow).  Even typing it makes me emotional.  I know she is proud of me, and I of her.  We conquered this race together and I'm glad she was by my side.

I did it! 

When I first looked at this picture all I saw was my fat roll. 
But the more I look at it the more I see my weight loss.
The more I see strength, perseverance, and power!
