It's been 7 weeks since I made up my mind to stop making poor choices and to start living a healthy life. I feel strong as ever. I don't even have to think about eating veggies, fruits, etc because it's just part of me. I fit into all my old clothes, this is what my hubby is most happy about since I don't have to go out on a shopping spree :-)

It's been 3 weeks today since I joined the RAC (a local gym) and I have consistently gone 5x per week. I don't feel pressure to go because I have a treadmill and some weights at home so if I'm tired or don't feel like working out hard, I do something lighter at home. The gym has really been a blessing for me and the money is not even an issue. I waited about 4 weeks after I decided to turn my lifestyle around to get a membership at the RAC and I think it really helped because I don't feel like I have to go just because I'm paying a (high) monthly fee. For me it's just a way to facilitate an active lifestyle so I can always have something to do if I'm bored of the same activity.

We always say we'll never weigh as much as we did in high school, and while that is true in so many levels, the most important thing isn't about becoming someone you used to's about becoming someone new that you can really understand.

I never wanted to weigh 100 pounds again (as I did in high school), but I'm at my ideal weight which is what I weighed in college. I have a completely different mindset about what it means too.

I wish every single one of you the best healthy life that you choose for yourself.
