One year ago I was a depressed frail woman.
One year ago I weighed 344.8lbs and had to buy my first pair of size 28 pants.
One year ago I was so uncomfortable in my own skin and was consumed with self-hate.
One year I go I said enough was enough and did something about it.
One year ago I set out to become the woman I wanted to be.
Today I am confident.
Today I am happy.
Today I love me.
In one year I have lost 39.5 lbs but more importantly in one year I have found myself. I know who I am and who I want to become. I smile back at the woman in the mirror because she is beautiful, smart, and kind regardless of the number on the scale or the size of her pants. In one year I have found my self-worth and know the value I add to the world.
What a difference one year makes.

From a size 28...
...to a size 22.
Imagine the difference one year from now.
