no, i haven’t been taking my measurements regularly. I do them from time to time, but not consistently enough to track…either way, i haven’t noticed any significant changes in how my clothes fit. i also have taken some time off from weights. I’ve been concentrating mostly on cardio because i still have a decent amount of fat that needs to be gotten rid of. i figure i still have 5-10 lbs of fat that i can burn before muscle weight really starts to increase/show. thx for the encouragement :-)

18. Most traumatic experience?

My car accident. A year ago (almost to the day) I was hit by a drunk driver. I was at a red light at a one way and he was sped into my lane and hit me head on going ~50 mph. The whole front of my car came in and I broke both my knees, hurt my lower back and neck. Because of this I can no longer dance ballet, something I had done for 9 years and gained a lot of weight.  I had to go to physical therapy for 8 months and am fully recovered now but it is still scary when I drive.

Specifically a group of about 5 or so people from my old high school) have said to me on more than one occasion is entirely too traumatizing and embarrassing to post. Other than that, probably my boyfriend saying that he likes someone else more than me for whatever reason outside of my control whenever we fight.

- Definitely not letting him get away. I just don’t like that idea of us not being together. We got everything figured out. :) 
  1.  COWBOYBOOTSANDHOCKEYSKATES said: My husband & I met & actually lived 4.5 hours apart..we dated for a year going back & forth rotating weekends racking up gas bills & mileage. I moved to him 6 months after engagement cuz his job was more secure. Now married. If you love him make it work.
- We’re definitely going to make it work. I told him that he was my only choice and he told me that I was his. He was just worried about when we start a family what would happen, but he’s glad we got everything figured out.  
Thank you both for your kind words.
