I quit smoking in 2004 and the weight started going on slowly. Add that to the natural decrease in metabolism as we age and it's a recipe for disaster! LOL! Got increasingly difficult to get it off even when watching calories and going to the gym 5 times a week. I was getting no where.

So I signed up on April 23, 2009 and 3 months later I had dropped 25 pounds, gotten my resting heart rate down to 52 bpm, fit into clothes I hadn't worn in years and I have turned into a foodie who is obsessed with finding new tasty and healthy recipes. My husband certainly isn't complaining about all the cooking I've been doing - although he did make a bit of a fuss at first. Not a man who likes change. But so far he has loved everything I've cooked.

Alas - there was that usual slip around the year end holidays when I got too lazy to work out and spent more time baking (and of course eating) cookies and drinking eggnog.

But I'm back on track. Working out 3 - 4 days a week and working back to 5 -6. Just in time to get ready for the bathing suit season (yikes!)
