Merry everything

Today is my last day of work until the New Year. I am so excited for a much-needed break. And because of that, this will be my last blog of 2010.

When I think back to beginning of the year, I think how different everything was for me. I wouldn't be where I am today without your love, support and endless cheerleading. Thank you for walking with me on this journey.

I wish you all a happy holiday and send wishes for a most properous and healthy 2011. I'll be back the first week of the year with lots of new ideas for this blog.

For now I'll leave you with some before and after action. I shared this photo last week at the Children's Human Resources Division meeting. This was taken almost exactly a year ago at a holiday party with some friends.


And wearing the same shirt (I ordered it online and they sent me the wrong size. But I managed to squeeze myself into it, anyway. Now it's a little too big) last month.


Thanks for everything, my sweet readers. See you next year!

at the risk of sounding completely cheesy...i'm so proud and inspired, Erika. I know this journey is so much more than healthy habits and new routines. HUGS to you!!
