i did it, i did it... i resisted temptation.

i'm facing myself again in the light of exams. another year is fast approaching, and i remember last christmas like it was yesterday. i realize i do not want to be unhealthy another year. i want to know what it feels like to look in the mirror and be proud of where i have come from, to know i am truly myself in my own skin.

the positive part is i am about twenty pounds less than i was last christmas. i have made strides, and sometimes i forget to give myself credit. i am dreaming again, i am planning. even though i have been through hurdles, they never stop... and i have moved and pushed through, as best i could.

i have so much to be thankful for.

faced with the easy way out, in everything... life, school, food, weight... i am learning to be strong. i fail at it sometimes but it isn't worth giving up. i will be successful.
