>Look What I Can Do!>I can't believe it
going back several years I was strutting my stuff in a size 22 jean. Thanks to running, cross training and good eating I easily put on a size 8 skinny jean today. Smallest size ever!! I am so happy I could scream!!

Well done and congratulations are most definitely in order.
We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us, and make us kinder.We always have the choice.
Go ahead and scream - that is a great accomplishment!
"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles ... The credit belongs to the [wo]man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again… and who,…, if [s]he fails, at least [s]he fails while daring greatly, …" Teddy Roosevelt
Outstanding!!! That's some fantastic progress, you should be very proud!

All young people feel boxed in, but what you do with the wiggle room that you have, will define who you become.
First or last...it's the same finish line
Great job! I've had the same transformation. As a guy, I've dropped from a size 40 to a 34...mostly thanks to running. I ran my first ever half marathon in December at 2:01. Now, I've signed up for 4 halts in 2013.
Keep on running and enjoy your life!
Go Cherrie go!
We need a picture to confirm...
Congratulations, Cherrie! Enjoy the 8's!
OCD If you don't laugh ...
