My Journey From Within My Cocoon....Not Again...BUT FOR THE LAST TIME !!

And here we go.....AGAIN....I know what it takes to lose weight, I can lose weight, and have lost weight, several times. I just can''t seem to keep the weight I have lost off. This is still a lesson I must learn. I break free from within the safe confines of my cocoon, spread my beautiful new wings and fly for a bit; but I always end up back in the safety of my cocoon, food.

And here we go.....AGAIN....I know what it takes to lose weight, I can lose weight, and have lost weight, several times. I just can''t seem to keep the weight I have lost off. This is still a lesson I must learn. I break free from within the safe confines of my cocoon, spread my beautiful new wings and fly for a bit; but I always end up back in the safety of my cocoon, food.

I am a perfectionist, a stress-eater, and I have a very active, analytic mind. I never stop thinking! I play hard, I worker even harder, and I love with everything I got; therefore, I am highly motivated, but I get tired, hurt, and very burnt out.

I feel terrible, have no motivation or energy, and I want to change that. I turn 50 in October... So my gift to myself is to change all that...starting today. I want to be fifty and fabulous, not fifty and frustrated. I want to be able to say, "Fifty never felt so good!"

My Goals:
This time, I have to have a different focus, my health. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and was immediately put on blood pressure medication...# 1 Goal, reduce my blood pressure and no longer need medication to do it.



My Program:
Since I am a stress eater, I don't want to add to my stress so I will keep it simple:

Drink 64 oz of water a day... I feel so much better when I do.

Eat three square meals and two healthy snacks each day with more fruits and vegetables.

Won't eat after 8 pm.

Log my food daily.

Exercise as much as physically possible.

Remind myself each day that I am a wonderful person no matter how much I weigh and thank God for all he has given me!



Personal Information:
49 year old from Ohio, married, with two son's and an angel in Heaven.

Has worked in a rural- town, community bank for over 30 years.

Loves music, loves to dance. Loves to create, write, and dream!

Other Information:
" The path of the butterfly and the path of the human are similar.

Both require building strength from the inside out while living inside walls of protection. And both agreed to melt down in order to be fully restored. Freedom awaits both the moment they shatter what has held them captive.

The butterfly instinctively knows what is required for transformation.

The human being has forgotten. That is about to change."

-Maureen Moss
