After 49 Empty Nest

Okay here is where it starts......I have been busy raising two beautiful daughters. The youngest is heading to college and I have decided it is my turn now. No more eating at consession stands, taking in mindless calories and fat grams. On July 23, 2008 I signed on because the cute little capris I was wearing that day were being closed with the aid of a rubber band at the waist. It was a little trick I used to get back into clothes after giving birth. Well that is simply not acceptable. ...

It was a little trick I used to get back into clothes after giving birth. Well that is simply not acceptable. The really shocking discovery is when I entered my weight and height I thought I had about 20 pounds to lose. However the spark gods soon told me that I was in denial and automatically placed me at 35 pounds to lose. That is a big fat reality check. I am ready to take responsibility and on my way to the goal. I really think the nutrition tracking for me is crutial because of the accountability factor. I wish all of you continued success on your current and future goals. Please leave a comment and I will try to reply.

Update 6/11/09

Well today I wore the little black capris to work and they zipped all the way to the top and buttoned without cutting into my waist. I was pleased with myself however I know that I have more to go. I have committed to a challenge that was bigger than I really wanted but I am up for it. I will try to win the pink bikini contest despite all the comfort foods currently in my house due to the college chicklets coming home.

Hi, girlfriend!
Nah, not getting skinny. Have blown it for the past couple of weeks. I'm hopeless!

I hope you are doing better. I'm getting back on track - once again.

Stay strong and thanks for keeping me honest!

Hugs,
Audrey
