Skinny me. I would like to get back here eventually and maybe a bit more toned on the bottom half.

My new journey

I've been struggling with my weight since we moved here from the UK when I was pregnant with my daughter. I found it much easier there to stay healthy (easier to exercise, easier to find healthy foods and less feelings of inadequacy). I'm hoping this will help me get back to where I need to be to gain more confidence in myself!

Update:

So far so good. It's taking a bit longer than expected to get to my goal, but I'm pretty close to my first goal of 145 and hope to ...
I've been struggling with my weight since we moved here from the UK when I was pregnant with my daughter. I found it much easier there to stay healthy (easier to exercise, easier to find healthy foods and less feelings of inadequacy). I'm hoping this will help me get back to where I need to be to gain more confidence in myself!

Update:

So far so good. It's taking a bit longer than expected to get to my goal, but I'm pretty close to my first goal of 145 and hope to get there by my birthday at the latest, but hopefully sooner. I'm then going to see what I feel like and if I feel I need to lose any more to get to where I want to be. It's been a great journey so far and I've had a few ups and downs (although much less than if I wasn't using SP). Right now I'm focusing on my diet and training for a 5k sometime this spring. I'm trying to cut out as much processed food as possible which is easy enough for me, but feeding everyone the same thing this way with two young children, one of whom is very picky, will be challenging (as well as a pretty picky hubby). I feel like I can get to my goal this time and stay there. I feel so much better and know I look better--I've had many comments on how great I look and inquiries as to my "secret", which of course I've replied--it's not a secret, just diet and exercise and of course mentioned SP as a great motivator for me. Hopefully it's stuck with some of them!

Hi! I just read your Day 50 blog, and it sounds like you're doing a great job of getting exercise throughout the day, and taking advantage of those opportunities that present themselves. Keep up the good work!

I love Gordon! I'm totally going to check that out. Creme brulee is my absolute fave. I love that crackling noise when you hit the sugar with the spoon. Mmmm, and topped with raspberries is even better!

Thanks for the sweet comments on my page! Hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to start out June strong!
