Me last winter with one of my dogs.





On our wedding day - probably the lightest I've been in years.





My motivation-- a virtual rendering of what I could look like at my first goal of 160 lbs.

It's time to exercise and eat right and lose weight for ME. No more worrying about what others think.

My husband lost 80 pounds by drinking diet soda instead of regular soda, and walking ten minutes a day. That won't work for me; I've tried simple changes with no results. It's time for a lifestyle change so I can look and feel the way I want to, and know that I am healthy.

If anyone is wondering, I am not counting my horseback riding as Cardio right now. Riding is really my release from pressure, so I don't want to attach it to exercise right now, or I'll start feeling forced to do it. Plus it's winter, and riding isn't exactly going to happen regularly until I can afford an indoor arena or we move somewhere warmer!

Happy Birthday to You!!

Born today (Feb. 28), you are a real go-getter who can be counted on in almost any situation to be a reliable Johnny on the spot whenever anyone needs assistance or something needs to be done that only you can do. More than willing to lend your talents to any worthy cause, you can always be found at the center of things, playing your part and contributing much to the success of an endeavor. You can do things the old-fashioned way or any number of previously untried ways, but no matter which way you choose, your work always bears the unmistakable stamp of unusual creativity combined with solid pragmatism.

You are not the jealous type. Now this may seem like an altogether good thing, and it may well be, but you can bet that some who become romantically involved with you may not take it so well, misinterpreting this odd quirk of personality as a lack of care or affection.

Today’s Pisces Horoscope: If you're too aggressive, you'll encounter more in the way of real resistance than you have in the past. Lighten up a bit.

Hope your day is wonderful!
