Well, another year has come to an end. I can honestly say that it has been a year of transformation for me. I lost over 100 pounds, ran a half marathon AND a full marathon. I feel better about myself than I have in years. I've learned to let go of negativity in my life. I've learned to say no more often. I've learned that I am stronger than I thought I was. I've learned that a few people in my life weren't able to accept the new me, but I've also learned to not let that bother me. It is what it is.
Before and after:
Matt and I have attended the annual OVV Gala for several years. This was the first year I bought a sassy dress and felt fabulous:
Happy New Year, everyone. I'm looking forward to what 2012 has to offer. I hope it's as great as 2011 was!
