I'll never miss another rainbow again!

How I felt as the "old me."
Well the old me was sad and lazy and took many trips to McDonalds and to the kitchen and was sedentary.
My turning point:
My turning point was watching someone I love have health issues due to his weight and diabetes.
Well I am not at goal, but well on my way. I started with Weight Watchers, but in June of 2012 I saw Peggy and found out about Steps To Good Health (STGH). I then started moving and eating better hand and hand. Total of 40 pounds gone with 222 to 28 more to go. Scary less left to goal than I have already lost.
I have a colorful fridge now and step 35,000 steps 5 days a week and 25,000 steps 2 days a week a majority of the time. I also climbed 25 flights 2 days a week, 100 one day a week and 75 flights 4 days a weeks. The stairs are on hiatus due to knee soreness, but will be for sure to start again.
The news picked up my story and I currently aired and have re-aired several times. More screen time of my story is still on the horizon as well as a potential follow up this fall. Peggy has created something awesome and has saved my life! Check us out on Facebook and join us at Steps To Good Health. I built to these steps over weeks and weeks and every step counts and every activity counts. We believe and yes it can be done and I will reach my goal!
How I feel today:
Now I feel I can do it and that I am not alone. A bit scared as there is less to lose than I have already left to go. Size 20 to 10 and 12 is the best ever!
"I can run and play tag with my students and keep up with my friends on tours now and love it. Will never miss another rainbow again!"
My advice for others:
Just do it at your pace and for you, but get by with a little help from your friends. Scale does not define you! It is feedback!
STEPS TO GOOD HEALTH IS THE BEST THING ON EARTH!
