Plus I was seldom hungry. Except for the joy of being hungry and planning my next meal. Not top loading calories, on a full stomach. Who knew I could change old habits. Or stop mindless grazing?
It can happen for you too.
Join me, as I Journey to SlimLand. It is possible, even for you. If I can do this, and I never thougth I could... then YOU CAN TOO!

May 2014 - I Believe I have become Unstoppable. This is One Month into my Personal Best Efforts. I am on a Streak right to Goal Weight, and into Maintenance. I will not Sabotage all of my Best Efforts. I am using SparkCoach, plus I have the support of so many great SparkFriends. My family are all eating and living healthy, and we completed a 3.5 mile run, (I walked), but we did this together. And it was Awesome. And we did it for an excellent cause. I will overhaul my page and update as I progress.

May 2013 - I haven't reached my weight goal. I have watched my scale and it's gone down and up again. I need to restart, and make my permanent change my goal. Permanent Lifestyle Change. I have no other choice left open to me, but to get the job done.
