I just woke up one day and decided it was time

time to get my rear in gear. I hardly recognized myself anymore. Things that I used to love to do, like pretty much anything active had been replaced with sedentary activities or even worse food and booze. I found myself being a spectator to life. I didn't feel good about myself, I was embarrassed about the way I looked. I can't even say it was one specific thing, but a picture of me with friends had a lot to do with slapping me in the face.

It hasn't been easy and I can't even tell you how long I've been working on it or the last time I had a glass of milk, but none of that matters. What matters is I feel great, I feel like I'm living again, I feel happy, I feel accomplished (but with more to accomplish) and someday I'll be able to drink milk again. (Can you tell I love milk?)

  1. This is awesome, Jen! Good for you! I think that a ton of people wind up feeling just like you do but not being able to figure out they need to do something to make a difference. Yay for you changing your life! (Now please motivate me because I just started back running, have a half marathon in 7 weeks, and was able to only run a mile yesterday before I had to stop.....Not promising!)
