It's amazing what two years can do.

Before I start, I am alive.

Why haven't I posted in a while? A bunch of things. It's beautiful and hot out so I would rather be enjoying some sangria on a patio than instead of writing blogs that hardly no one reads. Debby downer over here.

That's another thing. I had a little internal freak out a few weeks ago when I posted some very special pictures from the wedding and my awesome speech and what? I got one comment?

I work hard to write a good post and then for no one to say "love it" or whatever, kind of hurts. So, I stopped blogging for a while.

I do remind myself over the past few days that I swore I would only blog when I had something to blog about. One thing I can't stand in the blogging world is when you know a post has been written because that person felt like they had to write for their followers. That's not me.

Second thing I reminded myself is that I blog for me. I do. I blog to write down stuff for memories.


Butttt, some comments and followers would be great! Don't be shy. 

Other than that, I've been doing well in summer school. Finished my paper today and it's pretty darn good if I say so myself. Hope I didn't jink it!

Yesterday, I was thinking how it's already been two years since prom and grad. Two years! I'm officially an alumni of my high school.

So, I pulled out my photos from prom and was speechless over how much I have changed in two years, more like past 7 months. 30 pounds GONE and 18cm off my hips/waist/thighs all from working out and weight watchers.

a) look at that double chin!
b) look how thick I was.

Losing this weight and making a whole new lifestyle has changed my life. I have done things that I would have never done if I was 30 pounds heavier. The confidence I have is 10384% more than 7 months a go.  

I can now go up to guys and talk to them. I can tell people to set me with guys because I feel so confident and we all know that guys like girls who are confident.

And now, it's not all about guys but thats important to a girl who never had a boyfriend in high school and didn't have her first kiss till 19. True story.

I can now run 10k and even have signed up for a 15k in August. Amaze-balls because I couldn't even run 2k back in November without dy-ing.

I love that I have inspired family members to start writing down what they eat. I love that at the wedding close family members came up to me and said "I saw you at easter and you looked great, and now you looks amazing, Sarah."  And my cousin Bryan grabbed me and said "since when have you lost weight?!"


sidenote: only have lost about 5 pounds since easter but your body can change when you tone it.   


I don't mean to brag, y'all know that. But every time I see pictures from 7 months + a go it makes me cry. I will never stop thanking weight watchers for changing my life. It really has.

I will never EVER go back to that weight. Ever.
