Setting my healthy self free

Hello! I am a mid-40's woman who has struggled with either weight or self image most of my life. I've successfully lost all the extra weight several times, but have not kept it off. I'm an emotional eater as well as a boredom eater. However, now that I'm well in my 40's, this extra weight is causing health problems. I need to put myself first and work on getting fit and healthy.

My Program:
I switched to the fast 5:2 diet in July 2013. I eat low calories 2 days a week and eat at the top of my calorie range or a little over the other 5 days. This really works for me as I feel like I am only dieting 2 days a week. I am eating healthier overall and making better food choices every day.

Grew up in Minnesota, moved to Pennsylvania in 2011. Slowly adapting to East coast living. Proud Mom of 2 wonderful daughters and proud wife of my much loved husband.

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.....
It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"
-Lysa TerKeurst

Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"How do you build up your bank account? By putting something in it everyday.
Your health account is no different. What I do today, I am wearing tomorrow.
If I put inferior foods in my body today, I'm going to be inferior tomorrow, it's that simple."
