Well, I'm back at it again...struggling to get this 25-30 lbs I've gained OFF once again! Never thought in a million years that I would be back here again, but suffice it to say that my huge shift in lifestyle has caused me to lose my motivation for making myself a priority. My New Year's resolution for 2016 is to put myself back on the list!! I've got to be my own accountability partner - that's why I'm back on here tracking every BLT (bite, lick or taste). I started back walking Jan. 2nd and will be walking weekday mornings with a sweet friend. I also will be going to the gym when it's too cold to walk.

Since I now make my living from home sitting at the sewing machine, it's a bit more challenging - I'm not nearly as active as I once was. And since I love sewing and creating it makes it even more challenging to just get up and move!

That's why my walk takes place right after I chance for other responsibilities of the day to get in the way!

I look forward to hearing from some of my old friends on here...It's gonna be a slow and gradual process (one day at a time), but I hope to get back to my goal weight by the end of the year. Slow and steady wins the race!
