Before you scroll down and see the pics I have posted I have to fill you in on why I am posting them. Just over a year ago at one of our family Christmas Gatherings my mother talked about my twin brothers Shane & Shaun and how she had never had them stockings before then. She talked about how we should all be striving to improve ourselves so we could be with them again some day. She had all of us write a goal down on a piece of paper...Something that we would either give up or something that we would improve on...then she had us put the paper in one of the twins stockings. Well, I promised to work on Health...that I would strive harder to get healthier. So...over the past year I have tried really hard to work on it. I began running and started joining in on some family "Biggest Loser" competitions. To date I have lost approx 50 lbs. I do not share this to get compliments...I am simply posting it so that in the future I can look back, and rather than look at how far I still have to go, I can look at where I have been. I hope to continue this goal and continue to get healthier!!
