I want to lose 50 pounds by my 51st birthday!
Update, 6/19/12: My birthday isn't for another 3 months and I have already lost 50 pounds. Onward and upward! (Or onward and downward.)
Update, 7/22/12: Lost 60 pounds as of today!
I'm walking 60 minutes a day and trying to eat a diet full of fruits and vegetables and lean protein.
I live in the southeast corner of Idaho with my husband and my animals. We have a place in the mountains and I'd like to have the energy to hike there, not just sit in a lawn chair.
Hi Carrie! I saw a post you made about getting back on track after a couple months off, and I saw SO MUCH of myself in what you said! I tend to get tired of being healthy, tired of being the one that has to monitor what I eat/drink/exercise when not everybody does. But when I go off track, I don't necessarily enjoy it either - but I keep eating anyway!
Anyway, I find myself back here after a couple off weeks, and I'm trying to shift my mindset. I'm not going to stop trying!
Thanks for commenting on my post. It sounds like you went through something similar. Sometimes I feel so powerless against sugar...so I agree, I need to do everything to arm myself against it. Anyways, thanks again, your comment helped motivate me to keep going :)
I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for taking the time to put together such a well thought out response to my fish post. I actually tried it for lunch today and although my cooking needs A LOT of help, I may be able to do this!
