Donna's Ongoing Diet/Exercise Journey

I've been on this journey since childhood and most of the time it's been a real struggle. Along the way, I've learned the good habits of strength training, exercise and proper nutrition. I don't always do what I know I should be doing for a variety of reasons (excuses) but my biggest excuse of not having the time is no longer valid. In the Fall of 2008, I became a victim of the economy and lost my job. I decided it was time to follow my passion so I have become a full time watercolor ...
I've been on this journey since childhood and most of the time it's been a real struggle. Along the way, I've learned the good habits of strength training, exercise and proper nutrition. I don't always do what I know I should be doing for a variety of reasons (excuses) but my biggest excuse of not having the time is no longer valid. In the Fall of 2008, I became a victim of the economy and lost my job. I decided it was time to follow my passion so I have become a full time watercolor artist. I also want to dedicate time to improving my overall health.

Feeling hungry all the time has been a detriment. In the Fall of 2014 I stared taking Belviq and it has been wonderful for me, as my appetite is definitely under control and I feel like I can stick to a healthy lifestyle program, shed some weight and get off some of the medications I am on.

I'm here to get serious about loosing weight and living a healthy lifestyle.

Donna, I enjoyed reading your introduction. I hope you have a great 5% Challenge with your fellow Firecrackers. All those cruises makes me jealous, lol! I've never been on one.
