525,000 moments so dear
How do you measure, measure a year?
In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife
In 525,600 minutes
How do you measure a year in the life? ~Rent

Today is my 1 Year Lifestyle Change Anniversary. June 2017 I made the decision to stop letting obesity literally consume my life. Life was passing me by as I struggled to do normal daily things, such as putting on socks, clothes, walking upstairs, or pick up things off the floor. My weight was not only effecting me, but others as well. I was reluctant to leave my house because I was embarrassed by my size and it was just plain difficult to move so much.
So what changed? A few things clicked into place for me. I came to the realization that the path I was on would lead to nothing but heartbreak and I had so many things I wanted to see and do. I came across a few instragram accounts that showed me it was possible to lose the weight. I felt these women's stories were like mine and I knew then if they could do it, I had to try. Thank you @fatgirlfedup @unendingbattle
for sharing your life with the world!
I started seeing a dietitian because you can read all you want about health on the internet, it doesn't mean it is accurate. I focus on calorie deficit by pre-planning and meal preping almost all my meals. I set small goals. I drink over 100oz of water daily. I get 10K+ steps daily. I exercise 6 days a week for 30 to 60 mins. I took slow and steady steps and stayed consistent. Never let anyone tell you, that you cannot do something or you cannot change. I am not perfect, but I won't give up. I will not go back. I will move forward. I will make progress. I will live my best life.
Thanks to family and friends for supporting and loving me!
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
