The thing I'm adding this time around is that I'll be reading a little Al-Anon quote each day. SO, that's the plan to get started on this crazy journey again. ...

As you and I travel this path, I hope we get a chance to encourage each other, share in our successes, and learn from our hiccups.

Starting at 193lbs, I will lose 33 lbs by my daughter's high school graduation at the end of May.

At 174 lbs I will no longer be obese; at 145 lbs I will no longer be overweight; at 130 lbs I will be at my goal weight.

My Program:
I will eat consciously, I will exercise regularly, I will blog at least once a week, I will track my food, weight, and activity every day, I will make time to be quiet for a couple of minutes every day.

Personal Information:
I lived my whole life in Cincinnati and moved to North Carolina at the beginning of August. In many ways, this is the beginning of a new life for me. My husband is starting his new retired life which will mean many changes for us. I want to focus on my culinary career and continue to participate in culinary competitions. Wish me luck.
