Celebrating Two Years With Pictures

It's been a few weeks since my 2 year Bandiversary. I've been putting off writing this post for a couple of reasons.
First because we've been so darn busy around here with the start of a new school year. But also because I was feeling like I haven't been as successful as I wanted to be (I know, go ahead and slap me!).
I just wanted to have lost a little more weight and I'd LOVE to be down to 155. However, that hasn't happened and I need to stop fighting it.

I'm healthy and happy. I can run and jump and spin every single day, and even better yet, I actually enjoy doing it! That's a huge milestone for me and I need to start appreciating the non-scale victories in my life.

The weight loss part of my journey was exciting and fun but it's coming to a close. I need to embrace this next part of the journey, which happens to be the most important!
Maintenance  is my friend.

So, in keeping with tradition, here are my before, during, and now shots.

Day 1
6 months
1 year
2 years

2 years

The '2 year' shots were taken this morning. If you look real close, you can even see my port (left side rib cage).

I decided just this morning that I'm going to do a mud run on my 3 year bandiversary. I noticed there is one on August 17, 2013 and it's right here in my neck of the woods. What better way to celebrate a big milestone in my life!? I have 11 months to train.
I can do this!

Enjoy the rest of your day folks.
Be well.
