Weight Loss One-Year Anniversary

It is hard to believe, but today (March 15, 2012) marks a whole year of undergoing a lifestyle transformation.

Here is what I was at 304.5 on March 15, 2011:

Here is what I am today (roughly 95 lbs. lighter, usually hovering being 209-212):

To commemorate this one-year anniversary, I wanted to take an opportunity and answer the "How did you do it?" question I'm asked frequently.  However, due to my mother's heart attack on Monday of this week, I have spent most of my waking hours caring for her or taking care of so many of the household chores she performed when she was well.  Thankfully, the heart stints proved successful, and the Lord has granted her renewed health.  She still has a long road ahead of her as she recovers over the next few weeks and adjust to a change in diet.  Ultimately, I thank God that's she is still with us!

So, the next part of my weight loss journey will have to be written at a later date.  I'm just thankful for God's sustaining grace this past year, all the while mindful that He is the giver and sustainer of life!
