It's been a year since I made the decision to change my life. The realization hit that in order to keep living, I had to lose some weight. I have lost 56 pounds in 1 year/12 months/52 weeks/365 days, however you want to see it.
I remember saying to myself "if only I lost 2 pounds per week I would lose over 100 pounds". I would be lying if I said that I wasn't disappointed by not losing that amount of weight. I would also be lying if I said that I wasn't proud of myself for losing 56 pounds! I could still be weighing in at 335 pounds (or worse). Instead I'm continuously learning how to change my lifestyle, my food choices, my exercise plan, and improving my life in general.
