When I look back at the person that was me on October 18, 2009, I simply can’t go back. It’s been a journey filled with the ups of losing weight and feeling exponentially better and the lows and regaining almost 30 of the 70 pounds that I lost initially back when I moved here to Indianapolis. All I can say is “But God . . .”! My journey is not over. It has only begun and yes, I will be sitting down to write my story soon. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. I think my picture is at least worth a million. It is my testament, my testimony, and my battle cry all at once. I will not ever settle for mediocrity nor will I treat myself like a second class citizen any longer.
I no longer live to eat. I eat to live, laugh, and prosper. Nosce te ipsum cum laude! (Latin . . . Know thyself with the highest honor)
