I've Changed My Habits!



I joined Walk Kansas for the first time in 2011. It inspired me to keep on trying even during the summer months and during the school year (2011-2012) I am proud to say as of March 2012 of this year I have lost 110 pounds. I have 22 more pounds to go. I have changed eating habits and dieting habits. I eat anything I want and do not restrict or deprive myself of anything. I walk 90 minutes most days. I have even taken up jogging
