1 Year Bandiversary!

I've been thinking about what to post...
I then figured I should just reflect on the past year and how my life has changed for the better!

It was Wednesday, February 24th, 2010...7am! I left the kids with my mil cause they thought I was getting an ultrasound. Yeah, I know crazy! My husband dropped me off and by 1:00pm he was there to pick me up! Got home and the rest is history...well most of you have read it! hehehe!

Today I am 159lbs...which is a loss of 73lbs! 73lbs I will never never see again and for that I will BELIEVE! I didn't think it would ever be possible. Honestly...

I am happy where I am...size 10 or 12 in clothes and feeling great! For me it was all about being able to "shop at a real store"! And dammit I can finally do it and it brings me peace! I feel real and alive! I feel sexy and my confidence is back! Just bring it!

Anyone just starting out...just believe in yourself and it will come - one day at a time!
Anyone who is in a rut, just get up and dust yourself is another day!

The compliments keep pouring in...I like it but its definitely gonna take some getting used to. What were they thinking when I was 232????

Here's to all of you beautiful people that have helped me with this journey and for that I will be forever grateful! The sun is shining on the westcoast...turn up the sound, pump on some PINK and DANCE!
