Hello April



March left us like a lamb.
April promises showers for May flowers.

April 1st ~ one year ago today I started Project Me.
I am where I want to be health wise and weight wise ~ 45 lbs lost.
It was slow.  Very slow. But oh so worth it.

If I would have thought how long it would take
I most likely wouldn't have started.
But one year later I'm so thankful I did.

So here's to April!
The month of new beginnings for me.
I look forward to where the healthy me will go.

Wishing you a beautiful April!

I was just thinking extremely similar thoughts, today, Cat! I'm so pleased for you - so happy!

I was, also, thinking 'we made it!' 'we made it!' We made it through March! and why a switch on the calendar page should bring so much more hope than the day before, I don't know but I DO know that I am so glad and full of hope!

Happy spring! =]

Congratulations on weight loss! I think it is very hard to have such long project, but then it's a great accomplishment and I admire your patient effort!

Tracy said...

I'm so proud of your success! Keep it up girl. Today my husband took me shopping because I've lost 20 lbs. and he says he's tired of my clothes hanging off of me and it was a lot of fun trying on all these outfits!

Lin said...

45 lbs???! WOWEE!! I was just happy that I lost 4 lbs! I know how very difficult that is, so I congratulate you. :)

Linda R said...

Those eggs just make me smile.. Too cute.. Congrats on getting healthy. Not the easiest thing to do that's for sure.. I have a weird felling that I won't be seeing any April showers.. Maybe some wind but no showers.. :) Lucky Becca will be seeing all kinds of rain soon!

Hugs, Linda

Betsy from Tennessee said...

You and me too, Catherine. Last April 15th, I decided to get my act together and get his excess weight off --exercise more, getting healthy AGAIN... As of now, I've lost about 75 pounds --with a little more to go... It's not been easy---but when I think about what I've done, I am proud, as I know you are also... Now--for me comes the hardest part: keeping the weight off...

Congrats.
Hugs,
Betsy

Susan said...
