One Year Anniversary - give A way

I have been blogging for one year.
I posted my first blog on Sept 6th, 2008....one year and many blogs later, I am still enjoying it.
However, I'm wondering if I have succeeded at any of my "alleged" goals, of why I started this blog.
2008 GOALS:
I was going to change my relationship with food
I was going to lose weight
I was going to gain perspective on my body issues
I was going to share some weight loss tips
I was going to get in "control" of my eating.
I was going to kick up my exercise 
I was going to be an inspiration to others with diet success
I was going to lose weight, once and for all....
In the year since I made my goals, I went from 162 pounds, down to 151 pounds and back up to 172.
My lament last year was, "162, I can't believe I weigh 162.!!"
Now it's....."Atleast I'm not heavier than 172."
My perspective has sure changed...   I don't know if I've given in, or given up.
Everyone Loves a Give a way on a Blog!!
So let's have a GIVE A WAY!  
I'm going to give away my writing about chub any longer!
AND...... to celebrate my one year blog- a-versary...I'm changing the idea of my site from Sick of Chub.....to....drum roll please......wait for it, wait for it.....
Embrace my Chub!
Maybe if I embrace what and who I am, I will get farther ahead. Or atleast not feel so bad about being so far behind.
NEW GOALS:
Spread Happiness
Enjoy food  more
No weight loss tips
More random stuff that floats around in my head.
Funny family stories
Thankfulness
So that's it...
that's where I'm at one year into blogging.
