2B4EVERFITAT50 is Passionately Purple! Go Team!!

January 29, 2015 - update

25 pounds down! Half way there. Took exactly 13 months, so averaged about half a pound per week (though with plenty of ups and downs). Won't reach my original goal by my 50th birthday in less than 5 months, but that's ok. Willing to wait another year for the next 25 pounds if needed. Slow and pretty steady is really the way to go as it creates a more permanent change. Yay!

September 2014 - down 15 pounds and staying strong!

January 2014

I am a year and a half away from 50. Turning 40 felt like entering middle age which did not go over well with me (I know, should have been grateful....). Heading toward 50 feels very different - now with 8+ more years of emotional growth under my belt, it feels like it can be a fresh start, not a downhill slide. I can and will (God willing) reach my highest peak yet in the realms of physical, emotional and spiritual well being by 50 - June 22, 2015.
March 16, 2014: down 11 pounds; next goal is to lose 10 more pounds by my 49th birthday on June 22nd.
