One can never consent to creep when one feels the impulse to soar! ~Helen Keller
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jan 20, 2016... I am now 39 years old and not a lot has changed weight wise but health is worse. Stress is overwhelming. I feel like my life is fading away and so I am back AGAIN in search of a way to finally do this and get some much needed support from some of the best cheerleaders I used to know and love. I'm back... I hope...

2014 Hello. My name is Marisa. I am 37 years old. I am addicted to food, laziness and self loathing. I am here to change that...

2/1/2013.... starting over... gotta do it! Will! Must! Somehow, someway!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired!!!
I want to run with my kids without feeling like I am dying after 2 minutes of playing!
I want my doctor to look at me in astonishment & tell me that my sugar levels are on track & eventually my diabetes in remission!
I want to go dancing & swimming & running (yes, I said running!) & just experience the world!
I want to live for the first time in my life!
I am ready!!! I can do this! WE can do this!!! :)

My Goals:
Lower my blood pressure.
Control my blood sugar.
Lower my cholesterol.
Lose a LOT of weight.
LIVE!!!


My Program:
I am taking baby steps... baby steps are still steps in the right direction...

WALK EVERYDAY!!! Some days I walk for 20 minutes, some days I walk for 2 hours. It all depends on what I have to do that day and how I am feeling. I am discovering that when I take my camera with me I go farther and stay out longer, I may not go as fast but I'm still getting out there! That is more than I can honestly say I did before!

PORTION CONTROL!!! I have a gigantic problem with portion control! I must resist those urges for seconds and thirds...

This is where I plan on starting... GO! GO! GO!



Personal Information:
I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 18 years and we have two wonderful sons. One of which is a United States Marine. The other is a totally fabulous tween.
Seattle, Washington is where my roots are.

    Wanted to stop by and wish you a very Happy New Year! I'm finally back (it's been soooo long!) and just wanted to let you know that I've missed you and that I look forward to reconnecting. Hope you are doing well and that 2014 will be your best year yet!

    "Change has long been a fearful thing for human beings ... and at the same time, it is our most Divine opportunity. Clinging to the banks of the river may seem safe and more secure, but life's possibilities are truly engaged only when we trust, release and become part of The Flow of the Universe."
    - Chelle Thompson

    Fall reminds us that change is natural and welcome- let's take these last few weeks of our challenge to review where we have been, where we want to be, and what changes we need to make to get there.
