January 2014~I lost some ground over the winter. : (
March 2014~Back to pre-holiday weight. I know that I will always be a work in progress but I am close and 2014 is my year to make and maintain goal!

No more diets for me. Instead I try to do my best everyday to live a healthy and fit lifestyle. No More beating myself up and NO more quitting.

I have a fantastic, long time SP accountability buddy who gave me one of my favorite sayings: It's time to"STOP THE MADNESS!"

"Fall down 7 times, get up 8" Japanese proverb

Love the boxing gloves goodie! I am making a better start in September, but it feels more like I am on snow shoes sloshing through the snow. The good news....it is forward movement. You look ready to kick September! emoticon Way to go!
