Beansproutbarb's Babblings

I've been plump since I was about 8, with a brief foray into the world of slimness when I was about 20. The big pounds came on during my pregnancy with twins twenty years ago. I haven't been in One-derland since the days of nursing twins - and they are 26 now, so it's been a while!

I want to make good health choices a priority one day at a time, starting today. I am keeping track of my calories now. I have a good idea how weight loss is done, since I've done it before. It's the consistency and commitment that are hard.

May God help us all as we strive to develop healthier, more positive eating and movement habits!
