30 Days Day 13- Something I Am Proud Of

Today's topic is something that I am proud of. There are several things I am proud of(not to sound full of myself), but the most recent thing I am proud of most is losing 60 lbs. I started in march of 2011, and reached my goal almost exactly a year later in march of 2012. I have always been overweight, and was fine with that most of my life. But in march of 2011, I saw a recent picture of myself and didn't like the way I looked.I was uncomfortable in my own skin. And noticing that my work pants were too tight, I realized I would either have to buy new pants for work, or lose weight. Not wanting to see that higher number, thru the urging my of best friend, I joined Weight Watchers. I may have done the work to lose weight, but I owe getting me to the meetings to her. Have I mentioned how much I love her yet?;) I hadn't realized quite how much I had put on until I had to take it off.

L-R My Dad and I downtown at the Arch, and my Dad and I on my porch the night before I hit my goal weight.
I am happy to say that eight months later I am still below my goal weight. I have completed a half marathong(which I never personally could have done before losing the weight), and feel much healthier and comfortable with myself.

 What about you? What is something that you are proud of?
