Happy Blogiversary to me! One year ago today, I started this blog with this entry. I weighed 214 lbs and was 39 lbs into this journey. I wasn't exercising much yet. We were still just beginning to understand Finleigh's condition and were tubefeeding exclusively with no oral nourishment at all. We had no idea that Willem was 'gifted'. And I had not dreamed that in just over a year from then I'd be heading out on a tropical vacation with just my husband.
Life has changed. I feel like I've come a far way in one year.
I was not sure about this whole blogging thing. I really didn't know if it would be something I would continue doing or not. But as I sit before you now, I can unequivocally tell you that were it not for this blog and all my friends who read this thing...I would be eating some very fattening and yummy food right now and would not be heading to the treadmill as soon as I finish this post. And I probably would not have stayed on track as well as I did yesterday either because I was feeling pretty darned hungry.
I am a blogger. I wear that title proudly.
This blog has been a huge help and motivator to me as I try to find that elusive ideal weight and as I journey through the complicated and sometimes frustrating land that is parenting both healthy and special needs children.
Okay, if I'm going to get my AP's in before lunch, I need to go now. Enough reminiscing. Time to sweat.
