Happy One Year Blog-A-Versary


 It was one year ago today I started this blog. I had no idea how much support I would find here and how many friends I would make. For sure, this journey would be so much harder without all of you.  You keep me going and coming back each day. You help me to never give up.

It hasn't been an easy year, but I am (as of today) 37lbs down.

Life threw me some curveballs over the last year - my husband suffered a near fatal brain aneursysm, my parents both had health scares, my youngest son had some health problems, I thought I would NEVER find a new job (but I did), lots of financial struggles, lots of day to day struggles...but I'm still here and still taking one day at a time. Lots of happy stuff too; my brother and niece came from England to visit for two weeks, my boys are growing up and turning into great young men,  Dennis is getting better day by day, I'm getting into the habit of exercising 3-4 times a week, I'm learning to overcome my emotional eating (Thanks Dr. Beck!) and I'm generally happier and healthier.

Happy Anniversary to you!!!

Happy one-year-anniversary!

I've read your other post too and I quit reading Beck. I'm just a simple person: I usually overeat when I'm bored or really really sad. Lately I haven't been both of that so I don't overeat that much anymore (except Saturday :) ) so the book doesn't really help me and all the tasks started to irritate me.

Happy One Year - glad you are feeling better - sorry I missed reading about your problems. I have been quite MIA myself and it makes me realize how much I miss you all.

Thanks for sharing more of yourself here and I wish you continued health goodness.

Happy Anniversary Enz! 37 lbs down. Wowzers! That's fantastic.

Matt said...

Hi Enz, I've been chatting with you pretty much since I started this and I never would have guessed you were a person who had all that upheaval going on in your life because when you get on here on and blog, you're always very positive and informative and encouraging. Very cool that you are able to do that in the face of all that's going on, and I'm glad to hear that some of that upheaval is getting better.

Happy blogaversary, Enz! I hope this next year proves to be even more fantastic than the last one and filled with many more ups than downs. Congratulations on being at this for a year!

Happy anniversary! Great progress in the year. 37 pounds is fantastic - good solid weight loss. I've only recently started reading your blog so wasn't aware of all that you went through this year. Makes your success in the weight loss arena even more spectacular. Keep up the good work, Enz. You're an inspiration.

Natalia said...

Congratulations! Your dedication is paying off! :)

The fact that all those things happened and you lost 40 lbs. (I like to round up) is amazing really.

Best wishes on 2010 being your best year ever!!

Happy Anniversary ! And one thing is certain- the journey NEVER seems to go as smoothly, quickly or as uneventfully as we believe it should. That's when our determination and just plain stubbornness comes into play and gets us where we need to go.
