When is a year not a year??

On June 16, 2011, I saw an ad on Facebook for a website called My Fitness Pal. I was just coming out of an abyss of circumstance and medicine-induced depression that had me 30lbs heavier than February, when I was already at least 150lbs overweight, and decided I'd take a look. I joined the site, downloaded the app on my phone, and started “watching” what I was eating. Well, I wasn't really watching so much as just logging what I was eating and letting it take it's course. I lost 5lbs in the first two weeks, which I thought was great! Unfortunately, I hadn't really changed any of my habits, and that initial water weight came back with a vengeance. So, why do I say a year is not always a year? Well, while I looked like this when I signed up...

I still hadn't hit my highest ever weight, and I had no real plan to do anything about it; I simply joined a website, much like I “tried” so many diets before with no real belief they'd work. A lot has changed between then and now, but I will save that story for when I truly believe I have a year under my belt, so come back and see me on July 11. For now, I will just say here is what I look like today...



I'm not even half way done, and I haven't even mentioned the amazing support system that are my MFPeeps (because I didn't know they existed until after July 11), but I'm pretty darn proud of how far I've come and where I know I'm going.

 See you in less than a month!!

I know what you mean about the "year," issue, I started dieting in October, but gained all my weight back over the holidays. In January I started again. So do I say my year starts in October or January? I started going to the gym in November and started going every day in January, really pushing it hard after that...
Good luck and Congratulations!
