My Inspiration board - thought doing it would be stupid but I was VERY wrong.





Here I am at the beginning - over 200 lbs and ready to make a change.

Powerful not powerless

Incredible! I set a goal and achieved it - well several goals actually. It all started with the 10 minutes of exercise a day. That blossomed seamlessly to being active on a regular basis. Then came the 5% Fall Challenge which seemed like both a big and long term goal. But, one step at a time, one bite at a time, I DID it.

Now I am 23 pounds closer to my 70 pound goal. I can't tell you how many times that I have quit on myself and tried to come to terms with living the rest ...

Now I am 23 pounds closer to my 70 pound goal. I can't tell you how many times that I have quit on myself and tried to come to terms with living the rest of my life as a fat lady.

My body is changing, my energy and spirits are up, and I look younger. I am moving mountains (of fat) and starting to find the little woman who is hiding under there. The most important thing is that I feel powerful instead of powerless.

Thank you to all of my Spark Friends who support me every day. I could not make this journey without you.

My Goals:
I will lose 70 pounds before I turn 50 on 4/10/13

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.
