It has now been 8 months since my last post. I cannot believe that because in my head I have been blogging all along. I have come up with so many topics to pontificate upon and yet none have it made to “paper” so I am sharing a visual journey of the last eight months.
For a quick synopsis, I now weigh 145 lbs, have completed a 10 mile race and a half marathon. I have traveled to Durham, Perdido Key, Mobile, New York, Chicago, Houston, Orlando and Lover’s Key, Florida all for fun! I moved from Montgomery to Birmingham and am loving my new city! Now I actively hike and have kayaked. I have “swam” with the dolphins, manatees and other wild life. I have embraced my family and friends in a new way and have committed to be more active in their lives. This is such a precious, short life and I am excited about my new outlook on it!
In short I am now truly living… but the thing I am most proud of is that I am helping others who have reached out become healthier, whether through the surgery or by discussing the basic ways of how to lead a healthier life. This is the new beginning. This is now who I am and this is what I want my blog to become. I hope you will continue with me as I embark on a “new journey to find me” as a healthy, happy participant in my own life!
