One of the biggest obstacles I wanted to over come was running. I hated to run. I decided in July that I was going to run a 5k. I ran it and I decided from then on that I was going to run a 5k every month from now on and I have :) Recently, I have decided to run a half marathon this summer with my cousins. I can't believe that I am going to run 13.1 miles people. That's crazy!
Losing weight is hard if you don't have people cheering you on. From blogging and being on Facebook and Twitter I have met so many kick-ass people that are there to lean on for support. They understand what your going through, they understand your struggles, they're there when you achieve, when you feel like giving up they're there telling you to keep fighting. Honestly, I don't think I could have come this far without the help and support from other bloggers like Tara, Mike, Mel, Jess, Vinny, Rinn, and the man that helped me start this journey Tyler. They have been such a great inspiration to me throughout the year. I truely am grateful to have become good friends with the amazing people. I thank you guys and gals for keeping me in check and being great role models for me. <3
For someone who is just starting out their weight loss journey, I would encourage your to read their stories and see what these bloggers started at and where they are now. Add them on your blog roles, surf the internet for other bloggers and become friends with them. If you have facebook or twitter follow people and keep in touch with them. You can keep each other in check- kind of like a workout partner.
One year is down and a new one is soon to start. I am excited to see what 2011 has in store for me. What are you going to do in 2011? Are you going to get up and start exercising or are you going to wait another year. Make this the year you change your life.
