My healthier ME journey

I am a 56 years old and live in the northern tip of NH. My goals have changed a lot lately. I recently fit into my first pair of size 14 jeans and I like what I am seeing. But I am also learning to like the person on the inside. She is someone that I want to get to know.

I also have goals that aren't weight, exercise or nutrition related with is totally new for me. I have discovered hiking and I love it.
My goals for this summer are:
1 Be able to walk a 5K again ...

I'm sorry I haven't been as encouraging as I should - I have suffered a case of "the doldrums" and am hoping it will pass soon .

No rhyme or reason - it just hits me sometimes. I have been tracking and logging since Jan 1 and I think it is just getting to me.

I will be back! This you can bank on!!

Try for 1 lb per week - better chance of keeping it off. I didn't plan to lose so much last week and it set me back on my butt with binges. ONE day at a time & "this too shall pass!"

huggers,
linda
