Weight Loss Anniversary - 5 Years

On 9/12/12, I was on top of the world for having reached my goal. 
I was healthy!!! 
I was 100+ pounds lighter, I had reversed all my illnesses (diabetes type 2, high cholesterol and high blood pressure), I was no longer taking any more medications, and I've done it all one day before my birthday.

I remember so vividly that the day before my birthday I went to the GAP --a store I've not visited in many years. I used to be a size 22 and wore XXL. 

I couldn't believe I was looking for a dress at the GAP--but I got myself the dress you see in the picture and I wore it with pride.
