Never in a million years did I think I would look in a mirror with disgust and shame. But this past summer that was all I did. After my phase of hating the way I looked and refusing to look at photos of myself..I put my foot down. There was no way I was going on living my life unhappy. I was determined to regain confidence, live my life happy, and go back to the person I once knew who would never let themself do what I did.

Update time:
Since September I have learned to LOVE the gym, eat completely healthy, and overcome "bad days" and challenges.

So far, I've lost 26 lbs., am 1 pound away from being back to my old happy weight aka GOAL weight, have more of a toned body than I ever have, am back into jeans I wore 3-4 years ago, AND am doing something wild--just booked a trip to NYC to become Zumba certified so I can teach others a FUN way to work! (Something I was taught along my journey)

I'm also becoming quite the cook!! I love to cook! It's so relaxing and fun!

The moral of the story: Never EVER EVER give up on yourself or let anyone tell you that something isn't possible. There were times I would only lose a whopping pound/week but I didn't let that bring me down. Everyone has goals..and those are goals that can be met. It's all about how much you want it!

I could not have done this without my diet.com supporters! Thank you all for your encouragement and kind words. Greatly appreciated. Now I believe just because I don't have 10 more pounds to lose etc. that I should stop blogging or going on this site. I LOVE diet.com and reading everyones blogs!! =)

Truly thank you so much! Whenever you start to make progress and notice a change you won't look back. You really don't have to drastically change your life with eating etc. Just make modifications, substitutes, and all that bad for you food..don't have it on a daily basis anymore. Save it for days you are treating yourself. You will feel great!

I'm so glad to hear you're doing well! 26 pounds is AWESOME and I bet it will be fun being a zumba instructor. I wish you could teach me! ~Sara :o)
