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!

You know, I get so wrapped up in the struggle to reach the goal line that I forget to simply live the journey. My goal for summer 2015 is to simply live it; to keep moving forward, even if I stumble along the way. It is the lifestyle I want, to walk the road with faithful fervor. So I am going to focus on simply living it.

Trust in the Lord, and do good;
Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
(Psalm 37)

We can do it!

Hope you're doing well. I'm finally making progress and feel like I'm back in the driver's seat again. Have a good weekend of positive changes.

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.

Things I am learning this week: Wholehearted resolve reveals itself through earnest effort that flows from a willingness to adjust course in order to accomplish a purpose. Adjustments made with wholehearted resolve to possess the goal desired will produce lasting results I can live with for the long haul. Thinking of you and praying for your journey as we walk this way together. Darlene
