New Beginnings!!!

It's a new year and a new beginning!

In November 2011, I joined a fitness studio and overcame a fear I've had my whole life. My favorite class is Zumba. I still struggle with food but that will be a lifelong battle I'm sure. I am trying the whole "moderation" thing. Counting calories and tracking is so key for me. I have recently eliminated sugar. It's been about 2 months now.

In November 2011, I joined a fitness studio and overcame a fear I've had my whole life. My favorite class is Zumba. I still struggle with food but that will be a lifelong battle I'm sure. I am trying the whole "moderation" thing. Counting calories and tracking is so key for me. I have recently eliminated sugar. It's been about 2 months now. I do have one treat occasionally for a birthday or holiday.

The most important thing is how I feel about myself again. Going to classes to work out is a new thing for me and I have to say I love the energy and I feel great about what I'm doing now.

My goals now are more about being healthy rather than a number on a scale. I still would like to get down a bit, maybe another 10 lbs but I am realistic now about my goals and my weight.

I run challenges for my private team and we all benefit from that because it keeps us on track and we all motivate each other. I've been friends with these ladies since I started SP and I'd be lost without their friendship and support.

Here is where I stand right now...

I also read "The Spark" and it really motivated me. Thanks Chris. You are a true inspiration to us all!

Today and every day, you should be proud of all you've accomplished. Remember to take care of yourself as you are worth it. We fell out of touch but I never forgot you. :)
