4/2/2014 - Update - Quit the gym - I'm convinced I can exercise at home or wherever I may be. I've also taken a break from counting calories and I'm going low-carb instead. I don't eat unless I'm hungry and when I do I only eat until I start to feel a bit full and then I stop.

It seems to be working because I've lost another two sizes of clothes from size 20 to size 16! Now to get my butt in gear to do more exercise. It's been really crazy at work lately and I've been going ...
4/2/2014 - Update - Quit the gym - I'm convinced I can exercise at home or wherever I may be. I've also taken a break from counting calories and I'm going low-carb instead. I don't eat unless I'm hungry and when I do I only eat until I start to feel a bit full and then I stop.

It seems to be working because I've lost another two sizes of clothes from size 20 to size 16! Now to get my butt in gear to do more exercise. It's been really crazy at work lately and I've been going in early and working late, but somehow I'll figure out a way to squeeze at least 30 mins a day in. It's beyond amazing to be in onederland again. If I can do it so can you!

11/6/2013 - Update - still going to the gym. I've only lost 10 pounds over the past 5 months, but it was during the time my son left home to go off to college and also the most stressful time of the year at my job, so I'm happy that I lost weight instead of gaining it.

Now it's time to get serious though. I realize that to meet my goals I have to focus not only on exercise, but diet is so important too. Portion sizes, healthier and healthier choices and much too much protein are my focus now.

I also started trying to eat most of my carbs before my evening meal and not afterwards like I used to do snacking on chips, crackers and ice cream in front of the TV.

That means doing something with my hands like writing, playing video games, reading, sewing, playing guitar (I'm just learning) or even knitting, to keep from doing something that is snacking friendly like vegging out on the couch.

5/31/2013 - I joined a gym this week. I finally got up the nerve to ask my brother's girlfriend to help me. (She's a yoga instructor/personal trainer.)

I'm eating healthier now, but I sit in front of a computer all day then at night I write and my hobbies are playing video games or reading, (more sitting)!

I'm excited to be on this journey. I'm going to enjoy every step of the way. Feel free to add me. I'll add you back. I'm no expert, but I'm an excellent listener.

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston
