We are constantly changing who we are, what our needs and wants are. We change jobs, hair styles, clothing styles. Our taste in food and clothing change with the tides. We are constantly changing and evolving. Sometimes these changes occur overnight while others can take years but we do change.

I can't change the past. I can't change my regrets into triumphs just like there is no magical "do over" switch. I can't change the past but what I can change is my future. I'm ready for that change.What's done is done and can't be changed but the future is whatever I want it to be and I want to be happy, healthy, strong and confident! No more using the word try because that indicates that there is a possilibity of failure and that is not an option! LOL!

I may stumble and I may fall down but I will always pick myself back up. I will always dust myself off and I will always move forward...I will always push on. Together we can do this. There are too many of us supporting one another for us not to. If being away has done anything, it's shown me that I am not alone. I have friends. I have really good friends. People who care. Thank you all for being there for me even when I wasn't really there even for myself. I've missed you all and I just wanted to let you know that I'm back. Hugs to you all! This is our year to shine! 2014...here I come!

Fitness Minutes: 279

My Goals:
To lose the weight that I need to lose (which is sometimes different than what I "want" to lose. LOL!)
I also need to remember that my weight does not dictate whether I should be happy with myself or not.

My Program:
At this time I am not really following any one program. I am trying to eat healthy without punishment. I am looking at different programs that I can incorporate into one that will allow me to lose the weight that I need to without becoming afraid of carbs, fat, sugar, salt...There has to be a happy medium in all of this! LOL!

Personal Information:
I live in the suburbs of Chicago. I am back to work. When I was a stay at home mom, I lost 40 lbs. Over the past 3 (4 on 2/21/14!) year, I have put all the weight back on. I need to get back on track!

Other Information:
Favorite books: Horror!!
Favorite sayings: You Can Do It!
Favorite Movies: What Dreams May Come, Steel Magnolias

    Hi Lori! Thanks for commenting on my blog. It really was a great feeling to finish that walk. I've noted some changes I need to make ( get out of the pajamas and be properly dressed for one) so I can move forward from now on! - Diana

    Thanks! Yes it's been awhile. Between 4 jobs, 1 kid in university, one kid who made Capain of the Majorettes, and one kid beginning band, I think I meet myself coming and going. 😂 You're doing great! Stick with it--you can totally do this! 😃

    Hi, I've been gone awhile and just wanted to see how things were going for you. It's been a hard couple of years for me but I'm hanging in there. I hope all is well for you and your family. I hope to see you around on SP!
    Many Blessings
