Today, I hit a milestone in my journey.  I got in my 140s! It haven’t been in my 140s since I was in my late 20s–almost 10 years ago.  I’m incredibly proud of myself.  This past year has been an amazing journey in learning about discipline, perseverance, commitment, adaptability, and support.  I am completely a different person a year ago today.  A year ago today, I was indulging on sugar every day in the form of Girlscout cookies, chocolate, tapioca drinks, etc.   Today, my sugar for the day is in the form of grapefruit, apples, and oranges!  What a world of difference!  For those who have struggled with weight issues and other health complications, there is hope!  Don’t give up!
