1 year anniversary of a healthier lifestyle.

I know I've been gone forever but I had to make a little bit of a comeback today to share with all of you my weight loss journey. Today marks the 1 year anniversary of me deciding that I had had enough of being so out of shape and overweight (my BMI indicated borderline obese) so I decided to finally dedicate myself to a healthier lifestyle.

I did it the healthy way. I started counting calories using this website and exercising 6 days a week. I didn't restrict myself or cut everything out, I stopped having "bad" foods as often as I did before and when I did have some I just reduced my portions. I wanted this to be a lifestyle change, and it has.

These were my results by December 2010:

After a year I have so far lost 33 lbs but weight isn't everything I also lost 7 inches off from around my tummy and to see how much that 7inches really was I took pictures:

I am so proud of how far I have come! I still have a way to go but at least I am finally a healthy weight.
