Fifty is the new 30, right?

I have been fighting the battle of the bulge to some extent since I was a teenager, and although I have never felt I won the war, I always felt I had a fighting chance. That is, until I hit 40. Then all of a sudden, my metabolism just disappeared. No matter what I did, it seemed like I couldn't shed an ounce, yet if I dared eat a bit of junk food or dessert, I would immediately gain. I joined the BLC in the hopes it would give me the push I needed to finally lose the weight before I hit 50. ...

The progress has been painstakingly slow, but at least finally there has been some progress. I didn't hit the goal by 50, but I honestly believe now that I can do it by 51.

I am probably healthier now than I have ever been in my life, so now I just need to make the outside picture match how I am feeling inside. Piece of cake! Oops, make that piece of celery!!!!

My Goals:
My goal is to feel absolutely great about how I look by my next birthday!!

My Program:
I just started Chalean Extreme and I'm lovinn it! Other than that, I am always changing it up: Zumba, yoga, wogging, Boot Camp...you name it, if it's an exercise class I'll probably do it!

Food is a little trickier, but generally no junk food, as little processed food as possible, lots of freggies, and try to only eat when I'm actually hungry.

Personal Information:
I live in Thompson, Manitoba, Canada where the winter is just too darn long! So, where's that global warming everyone's talking about anyway!

Sure makes you appreciate our fabulous summers though!

Other Information:
I have too many interests. I keep thinking I should drop one, but then I don't want to let it go!

Right now I am in the local theatre group, go to Zumba and yoga classes, curl once a week, and try to find some time to spend with my dog. Oh yeah, the hubby is allowed to tag along with us too!

May you know by experience Godís grace, spiritual favor and BLESSing today and every day, having heart peace from God the Eternal Father Ė that peaceful state of trust in Him to which He calls us; that soul harmony with Him that umpires life choices, heart desires, and questions of the mind. May He settle us with faith to trust Him. Have a BLESSed Thanksgiving, rested in Father. Loving you in Christ, Darlene.

The cold weather is getting to me, but it will not win the war. What is getting to you and slowing your progress? Let me know and I will gladly pray with you for your victory. Whatever the challenge, let's keep the main thing the main thing and find the victory there. Enjoy the journey, and remember, progress--not perfection. Change comes here a little and there a little as we stay the course. Remember that true success is in how we make the journey, not the destination. If we lose all our weight but fail the change the habits that put us there, we may feel victorious in reaching the destination, but it will be short lived if we don't find the victory needed on the journey of true change. emoticon emoticon emoticon Darlene emoticon Go Mustangs! There is victory in the journey lived well.
