The moment in between what you once were, and who you are now becoming, is where the dance of life really takes place. - Barbara de Angelis

Wow... 2009 has been, without a doubt, the mist pivotal of my life. I started this year weighing 270lbs. I started this year completely unhappy with who I was, where I was living, where I was working, and my uncertainty about my direction in life. I will start 2010 weighing 186 lbs. I love who I have become, I live in the most beautiful place I can imagine, and I am working and studying in a field that I am completely passionate about. I have so much more to write, and probably more to say- I think I'll vlog it... But I just had to get a few words down today, the last day of 2009, the year I became ME.

Everyone's so excited about the coming year - I think it's because this year will be the time we lose the rest of the weight and get to goal! You are one of our brightest stars and I'm so glad things are going well for you. I hope 2010 brings you everything you wish for and more.

2009 was absolutely a life changing year, and I can't wait to see what 2010 has in store for us. I have been reading your blog for a few weeks, and really appreciate the normalcy you place on minor indulgences, and are always so confident about getting back on track. It has been so fun for me to read your posts! Happy New Year and I can't wait to read your 2010 adventures...
