Me Update

I'm not sure if anyone remembers, but around this time last year I was on a mission to change my eating habits. I had challenged myself for 12 weeks, joined Walk Kansas, and stopped drinking soda. I ended up losing a much needed 40 lbs.

**I still am not drinking soda. My name is Becky, and it has been a year and 3 months since soda has touched my lips.

And now:

I have joined Walk Kansas again, and am on a team that really pushes ourselves. I felt I was having some addiction issues with sugar, so I pulled A.L.L refined sugar a month...A MONTH!!..ago. I've learned more about sugar during this time than I have my entire life.   I had a rough 3 days, and then suddenly the clouds parted and the sun came out and I felt better than I have in YEARS!! YEARS!!!!  I WILL eat cake and yummies someday soon. This is just something I needed to do at the moment to get myself in check again.
I'd like to get 20 more pounds off this during this Walk Kansas challenge.

Sometimes the journey seems long. And unreachable.

And then I look back...

and can see just how far I have come.

I really can do this!
