Default Accomplishments

Yesterday was my one year anniversary of quitting smoking. It got me to thinking and I have made some major accomplishments during this last trip around our lovely sun.

I quit smoking.
I lost 50 pounds (ok, 49.4).
I kicked diabetes butt.
I went from 6-10 mountain dews a day to maybe 1 DIET mountain dew.
I gave up junk food (for the most part).
I have learned a lot about how to become healthy, not just how to lose weight.
I started working out and am now becoming a runner.
I made my first long road trip by myself ever without getting lost once. (GPS is a beautiful thing)
I bought a house, well hubby and I did.

That is quite a lot and that is only listing the major things. I have been a busy girl in the accomplishments area and it feels good. I wonder what I can get done on the next trip around.

I'm more proud of the health changes, but I am more shocked and amazed at my driving from Arkansas to Florida and back alone.

Lindifer - Of course you can. You just gotta say to yourself, this is what I'm going to do. It's not a this is what I want to do kind of situation. You have to say I AM GOING TO. And you have 3FC already, I didn't have it until my year was almost up - we're all here for you and it will be much easier with all the support.
