Before. Happily together with my boy for 10 years.





On my wedding day.





My goal photo. At age 16 and a size 12/14, I was sure I was fat and hideous. Oh, hindsight...



I have 6 pics in my gallery

I'm just your average geeky, blue-haired, happily married, childfree art director starting my journey over yet again. But every try at anything fails until one doesn't, so here we go again!!

I love to cook and I'm damn good at it (I can provide references!) That's proving to make things much easier, because I can make healthy options that don't taste like sacrifice and sadness. It helps that I have a partner who will eat anything I put in front of him.

The boy and I are adopting a philosophy of moderation, choosing whole foods over the gimmicky and chemical-laden "light" and "diet" foods (we should be excited to eat every calorie), and committing to "sweating every day." While he doesn't have the pounds to lose that I do, he's getting in shape too, and this is the first time we've truly worked *together* on our health. So far we're both going strong and super optimistic! Is this time time I make it happen??

My Goals:
Ultimate goal: When I hit a size 14, a pair of Guess? Jeans. This was my first "when I get skinny" goal as a kid, and I never achieved it. I know I can do it this time.

Also, a pair of Fluevog knee boots that fit my calves without alterations. Maybe it could happen!

My Program:
1. Never stop measuring. Tracking food is key.

2. Every little bit counts.
10 minutes of exercise is better than none. A short walk is better than nothing.

3. Eat what tastes good. (Keep it natural)
I don't like artificial sweeteners or the chemicals used in many "light" or "fat free" products.

4. Cook at home
I have control over what I make, from portions to ingredients. It just makes sense.

thank you for the feed back on the fit bit - I appreciate it. Is there a fee to be connected to the program? And if so, what is the cost ? My niece says she paid to be connected so I am wondering. Thanks, emoticon
