30 pounds lighter almost half way!
It has now been 9 months since I made my commitment to life a better healthier life. There have been days of motivation and days of struggle. There have been victories and defeats. Through it all the one thing that has been constant is growth. Learning how to forgive and how to accept myself just as I am... as I become the person I want to be has been so powerful!
Goals Goals and more Goals....
Life should be full of them, and mine now is. Being healthy is not just a number on a scale, or a fitness achievement, or even a spiritual movement. It's all about balance, and caring for yourself, thats when things came full circle for me anyhow.
I have much more to learn, but I'm on the right road now, and I am winning! As I take a deep breath and look around I can see that anything is possible but it takes effort. I am now more than ever willing to pay that price!
1. to embrace life by strenthing my body with excercise
2. to nuture my spirit daily with daily motivations
3. to track what i put in my mouth and learn what triggers overeating, and to fuel my body with nutrition
My program consists of daily trcking calories in and calories out. I also set a goal of 10,000 steps a day to include 5 days a week at the gym. Most importantly I want to learn from all the successful people here and to challange myself to become connected and to give back to others
My name is Debbie and I live in Louisville Ky. I am 51 years old and a single parent of an incredible young man. He is my biggest support, lives a healthy lifestyle, and is a true inspiration. I am determined to love my life andto start living it to the fullest. For at least a decade I became so involved with work that i lost perspective, lost sight of what life has to offer. Now I want explore new challanges, to reach out and grab what ever life has to offer. To do this I finally reolize it is all about being healthy, and strong.

Thanks for the floatie Goodie! I will use it since I don't swim.lol I'm guessin' we'll be in fairly shallow water. The cool thing is that the pool isn't open to the public at that time and there aren't any men in the class and It's all older women. I can't go tomorrow since I have a dentist appt but I'll go Thur and the 2 days next week and I'll do Mon, Wed and Fri aerobics again. It will be interesting in the morning when I try to get out of bed.
I'm not too concerned, yet, about my gain, and think this new adventure, the Y, will make it like I'm starting new and just want to lose 35lbs. Certainly a LOT less than when I started. I'm still looking forward to wearing those size 14 jeans for sure.
Glad things are going well for you. Hope you get to work soon and am glad that you're going to enjoy your days until you are at your new job. Keep cool and hydrated. WE/

Jessies for breakfast sounds wonderful............say 10; earlier or later will be super fine for me. Just let me know what time to be there and I'll have my bells on!!! Come on tomorrow!!! Be sure to let me know what time.........or I'll just be there at 10!!
Qdoba on Dixie? We'll just have to go there next time!! My Yoga class was last night at Sun Valley. Gosh I love that class. She mainly teaches (and is very good) at beginning Yoga. She started out teaching in Fairdale, the chiropractor called her. I think she's been at Sun Valley about 5 years. I've actually learned to be content with my life, and I love it. In Fairdale not enough people were interested. They might try again in the fall.
Remind me to ask at Jessie's if they give a military discount!!! Either SS or a military discount, I try for them all!! I can't wait to see you!!!
I love You GF,
