Congratulations to me! Three nights ago I graduated with a master's degree in Education, Equity and Cultural Diversity from the University of Colorado. It has been a two-and-one-half year journey during which there were times that I was barely hanging on. Needless to say, I didn't always make choices that benefited my health (or weight!) but they were choices I made in order to hang on. I cannot change what's done - I can only move forward. And I will.

In 2008 I lost 40+ pounds. I have gained about 25 of it back. But I know that it can be done, and I know how to do it. Begin step one of my (again) journey...

Thank you so much for your comment on my page! I see you are a teacher, and I have taught in some form (public school, daycare, private tutoring, etc) for 20 years now, and am currently a PT nanny. I'd love to stay in touch! emoticon

I was searching your website and can't wait to place an order. I must talk it over with DH but I am certain he will not care as I buy many of those items any way.

Since your eating habits are going well, did you change your workout? If not, then you may want to change it because your body will get use to it! Try changing your workout and see if that helps the scale to move in the direction you want! Much success to you!
