One can never consent to creep when one feels the impulse to soar! ~Helen Keller
Jan 20, 2016... I am now 39 years old and not a lot has changed weight wise but health is worse. Stress is overwhelming. I feel like my life is fading away and so I am back AGAIN in search of a way to finally do this and get some much needed support from some of the best cheerleaders I used to know and love. I'm back... I hope...

2014 Hello. My name is Marisa. I am 37 years old. I am addicted to food, laziness and self loathing. I am here to change that...

2/1/2013.... starting over... gotta do it! Will! Must! Somehow, someway!
I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired!!!
I want to run with my kids without feeling like I am dying after 2 minutes of playing!
I want my doctor to look at me in astonishment & tell me that my sugar levels are on track & eventually my diabetes in remission!
I want to go dancing & swimming & running (yes, I said running!) & just experience the world!
I want to live for the first time in my life!
I am ready!!! I can do this! WE can do this!!! :)

My Goals:
Lower my blood pressure.
Control my blood sugar.
Lower my cholesterol.
Lose a LOT of weight.

My Program:
I am taking baby steps... baby steps are still steps in the right direction...

WALK EVERYDAY!!! Some days I walk for 20 minutes, some days I walk for 2 hours. It all depends on what I have to do that day and how I am feeling. I am discovering that when I take my camera with me I go farther and stay out longer, I may not go as fast but I'm still getting out there! That is more than I can honestly say I did before!

PORTION CONTROL!!! I have a gigantic problem with portion control! I must resist those urges for seconds and thirds...

This is where I plan on starting... GO! GO! GO!

Personal Information:
I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 18 years and we have two wonderful sons. One of which is a United States Marine. The other is a totally fabulous tween.
Seattle, Washington is where my roots are.
