Beautiful rainbow last night. Even though it didn't rain yesterday. Weird.

Sun came out, beautiful day!

Hi, my name is Liz and I am working my way back to a healthy way of life. Having been overweight all of my adult life, I have decided that the now or never time has come. I am striving to be a better me in all ways and have fun in the process.

I've been very lax in my eating and exercise habits fo awhile now. I've gained back about 40 of the 60 pounds I had lost. I've had some physical problems, back and other things that have made it difficult to get moving again. But I am ready to go back at it as much as my health will allow at this point. I've dusted off my food scale, found the dreaded weight scale and have gotten rid of most of the junk food in the house. I feel like I've reached a now or never point in my life. I want to be healthy, I deserve to be healthy, I WILL get healthy and stay there.

I look forward to sharing my renewed journey with my spark friends.
Together we can do this, get healthy, live healthy, stay healthy.

My Goals:
My goal is to get moving again. Last year I tore 2 tendons in my foot which led to surgery in June 2015. A long recovery led me to much inactivity. While I still have to be careful, it's time for me to move again!

My Program:
I am learning that I like/love exercise along with counting calories and using portion control.

Personal Information:
i'm approaching the BIG
6-0 this summer. A good time to reevaluate where I am in my life.

Other Information:
i am a huge dog lover. My last fur baby passed about 2 1/2 years ago and there has been an empty space in my heart since then. My hubby & myself are avid campers, enjoying the great outdoors. I love to read... Pretty much anything I get my hands on.

    Texas A&M, like other land grant colleges founded by the Morrill act back in the 1800s, was originally intended to be an agricultural and mechanical (engineering) school, hence the A&M, and the Aggies ("people who do agricultural related things"). Most land grant colleges have dropped the Agricultural part of their names, but Texas A&M, as a leader in research in food production, plant diseases, and veterinary science, has not, and its students proudly wear the Aggie moniker whether we have degrees in agriculture or not.....

    The movie "Babies" was on a DVD checked out from the local library, but according to the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) it was released in 2010, and was apparently on Netflix for some time since then, but is not now on Netflix....

    You might check your library, or just keep your eyes open for a good sale...

    It was really a fun documentary, with no narration at all .... and who doesn't love BABIES!

    Hi Liz - thank you for visiting my Butterfly walk / blog!

    I live in the Texas scorching heat! I wrote another blog and posted pictures from this morning, won't go back out till after 6pm !!!! It's 3pm here and it's already 94 degrees with very few clouds.

    Answer to your other question - the orange butterfly is a juvie Julia Heliconian.

    I'll be at an annual Butterfly Festival in a few days - so watch out for a plethora of pictures!!
