It just takes one step.

I went running (3 miles... 36 minutes, just call me Usain.)
I'm an sugar free today.

I'm am closer to where I want to be.

I feel alive.
My body feels amazing.

Why do I always think that when I get off the wagon I will need a ladder to get back on? Not the case. It takes one step. I may weigh in at a whopping 170.8 (today, YIKES) but i'm not back to 277. I don't have to start over. I just have to take ONE SINGLE STEP.

So today I am 25.8 pounds away from my goal weight.

It is a heck of a long ways from the 132 pounds I needed to lose when I started this journey.

Lap Band Gal, I just now understand "there is no finish line."

And, just to show you want a girl that lost a little weight can do:

Weight limit 240~ I missed that by 70 pounds! :)

When the weight is no longer holding me down, I find out it wasn't always about the weight to begin with.


  1. Great Post!! Love that you went paragliding! - you are one brave girl. Yes - its just one step to get back in the game - somehow that step is harder than running a 10K uphill.....sugar free= I'm with ya!

  2. I'm with you on the sugar-free! It's hard, but so worth it. :)

    Glad you're back!

  3. OMG that looks so fun!! Congrats on getting back on the wagon!

  4. WOWZERS! That looks like so much fun! :)

    If you find that Finish Line, let me know. I haven't found it yet! :) ha ha. Hugs!
