Power is...strength over time. The more you do something, the stronger you get, thus making you powerful!!

Look out Fabulous Forties...cuz here I come!!!!! I have worked hard...I have cared for my family, as a nurse I have dedicated my career to caring for others, and I DESERVE the effort, the time, the money and love for myself that it takes to make the significant changes in my well being, my self esteem and my body image. Because I am ready to put away my safe and comfortable clothes and shoes and let that VIBRANT and SEXY woman, with still much living to do, come bursting forth!! I CAN DO THIS!!

09/30/08...Goal for October
To lose and maintain a 5 pound loss. I will break that down into weekly goals of about 1.25 pds. I will take it one day at a time and one meal at time, rather than continue to look at that overall picture, I find that is to overwhelming for me and the cause of too much anxiety. ( God please bless my efforts! Amen)

02/05/09....Flat Belly Diet rules!!
Finally the scale is moving in the right direction! I started doing the FBD on 01/18/09, and have lost 5 pounds in 2.5 weeks, and have felt great doing it. I am eating delicious filling foods, and am never hungry. I'm eating whole unprocessed foods, including breads and pototoes. I have not used table salt since 01/18/09, and really have not missed it. A very crucial element of this eating style is to have a healthy fat (MUFA) at every meal. The swelling in my ankles and lower legs is almost completely gone, and they don't hurt first thing in the mornings anymore. The 4 day jumpstart was a breeze, and I really wanted to stay on it, but the book advise that you move on as directed which has also been GREAT!! Because there is no deprivation, and no hunger it has been really easy to stay the course. Whew! Go Flat Belly Losers!!

Fitness Minutes: 1,644

My Goals:
To lose 4-5 pounds a month for the next 10 months, and then ...KEEP IT OFF.... no more lose then gain again roller coasters for me.

My Program:
I will not eliminate any one food group, but instead calorie count every morsel that I eat, and challange myself to have an active lifestyle. Also, no more mindless eating.

Personal Information:
When I registered for this site, the fitness calculator told me I was obese. (29.9 BMI) 43 pounds overweight...how depressing for a young able bodied person without health limitations. I have no reason to justify this other than possibly greed and laziness...this is no longer acceptable.

Other Information:
I have decided to not discuss my efforts with friends, family and co-workers..as my new motto is "Don't talk about it....Be about it!"

    We care for others
    We give and give
    It seems others lives
    Is the one we live
    Now the time has come
    To dust ourselves off
    Make ourselves shine, make ourselves glow
    Transform the outside
    To the inside we know.

    From one fellow nurse to another

    Have a great weekend
