My Goals:
Reach a healthy weight and stay there for the rest of my life.

Build endurance and strength so I can travel and work in my garden with ease.

Reduce the effects of a chronic autoimmune illness as much as possible.



My Program:
I'm going SLOWLY.
From past experience, I know that I CAN lose weight quickly but I gain it back (and then some) just as fast. My goal is to lose 1 lb per week. If I start to feel deprived, I will adjust to a lower amount per week. Right now, my calorie intake is approx what I would eat to maintain a healthy weight once I reach my goal - so I figure I'm on a path to lifelong maintenance already!

Just have to stop by to wish you an awesome weekend, and a fantastic Friday. I want you to know I value your friendship very much.

MaeLi has been sick with that stomach flu bug. And is still home from school. I hope I do not get it. Right now I am feeling a little funny. So I am doubling up on my zinc and probiotics.

Thought you might like this : Life is a math equation. In order to gain the most, you have to know how to convert the negatives into positives.
