1/5/15: I haven't logged in for a year. I suppose I had a lot of self-destruction to get out of my system. How many times do you really get to start again?

I just signed up for the 21 Day Fix with Beachbody, and will be doing Shakeology. I got on the scale and for the first time I am only pounds away from 300. I also found out I have high cholesterol. I know I'm very lucky not to have diabetes. Yet.

My divorce took a big toll on me, but I know it's time to regroup.


1/16/04: Life has certainly taken a bumpy course the past few months. I'm suddenly a single mother, newly divorced. I'm also the heaviest I have ever been, and I'm ready to change that.

Hi. Have you tried that Beachbody program that you told me about? I had another hernia surgery, just last Monday. I had one in July too. I don't know if I'll ever be able to do anything other than walking dvds.

I am "friends" with a few Beachbody coaches on Facebook. I have always watched the Beachbody infomercials and I own a few of the programs. The problem is that I never did a single one. 21 Day Fix looks doable. I know we can do this! I'll be 55 in July and I don't want to look like what I look like now.

How is your daughter? Is she in kindergarten yet? I bet she's growing like a weed.

Hi Vanessa. Happy New Year! I am happy to see your post. I'm so sorry for your divorce. You deserve the best and I know you can achieve your dreams. I'm going to do the 21 Day Fix too. Just waiting for it to come. Great minds think alike. ;)
