I am near the halfway mark in my weight loss journey. Now's the time for me to assess what new changes I can make, in my daily schedule and how to get back to losing weight once more.
With life becoming very busy this past summer I found I was not keeping up with all of my new habits.

Spring 2014
I took a 5% Challenge this Spring 2014, and am I ever glad I did. I lost 10% who wouldn't be happy with that?
I began Tracking my Nutrition, even before I knew how to use the tracker, same for my Fitness.
I began to WANT to track my calories, to see if I actually could eat 1200 to 1500 Calories, in order to lose a pound or two a week.
Who knew it was possible to be full, and happy with what I ate to stay within that range.
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 thought I could... then YOU CAN TOO!
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.

Sept 12 2011My current GOAL is to find Success in CONSISTENCY Making Good CHOICES 1 at a time(Thanks DARKTHOR) Planning Healthy, Low-Cal Meals Planning & Tracking Calories & Exercise Enjoying the process, and the changes in my lifestyle because its all part of the Journey. If this doesn't bring me closer to Goal Weight, then I'm not following closely enough. I'm Getting COMMITTED NOW because CHANGE HAPPENS NOW

May your feet never sweat,
your neighbor give you ne're a treat.
When flowers bloom, I hope you'll not sneeze,
and may you always have someone to sqeeze!
