At one point this year, April 18th to be exact, I weighed 199.3.
I know this because I looked at the pictures of my son and I on his birthday,
and I wondered how much I weighed because my face looked swollen.
Around that time, I started looking into health and nutrition because my daughter had been sick so frequently I knew there had to be something I was missing. It eventually led me to a vegan diet, that my entire household has adopted. I have recently slipped from my vegan choices, including when making decisions for my children. I noticed the weight started to add back up, my energy level was slipping steadily, my daughter started going back to her routine of getting sick all the time.

It reaffirmed my initial feelings about this choice.
Now on NYE 2010, I weigh 164 lbs.
I'm in the best shape I've been in since
I was 16 years old and in gymnastics.
It's been an awesome year.
"New Year's eve is like every other night;
there is no pause in the march of the universe,
no breathless moment of silence among created things
that the passage of another twelve months may be noted;
and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening
that come with the coming of darkness on other nights."
