Tumbling about getting healthy & fit (have lost 116 lbs so far), learning to love myself and trying to live life to the fullest.

Flashback Friday - July 2010
I started getting serious about my health in September of 2010 so in this picture I was at my heaviest.  This was taken in Saint Petersburg Russia in front of The Church of Our Savior on the Spilled Blood.  I was looking at pictures from that trip & they are mostly of my family, landmarks and food.  Not many of me.  I was so worried going on that 12 day cruise on how I would manage all the walking during the excursions. I am surprised I did as well as I did but I was often on the look out for places to sit.  I remember in this picture I thought it would take forever a day to walk to the church.  It sure felt like it did.    
One day I would love to be able to go back and experience this cruise again but this time being able to truly enjoy it rather than worry about holding everyone back.
