Growing Younger...

After a decade of weight gain, I'm focused on living a healthy life. 2013 was my rebound year. It took a few attempts to make progress, but I've lost 36 pounds and lost 6" from my waist.

My goal for 2015 is to find peace with myself and others. Get to my goal weight. And learn to maintain and health weight for life.

I want to make a difference in this world. Give something that will help another being. Do something to make this world a better a place. Doesn't need to be newsworthy, but something meaningful. I'm searching for that something.

Losing weight is by far harder mentally than physically. Anyone can count calories and exercise and lose weight. The hard part is making the decision to do it everyday.

While I have both short term and long term goals, I'm taking this one day at a time.

emoticon I have noticed that you are from the south bay! I grew up in Torrance; having went to West High School. I have great memories of my childhood and young adult life. Now I live about a 45-min drive away.

All the best to you in this journey. We are both on the Beauty over 50 team. I have added you as friend.
