You Only Live Once...Make it an awesome life. :)
I am a wife to a handsome Army retiree who served our country for 21 years and mom to a beautiful 11 year old girl and 3 rowdy Rotties.

My main goal is to be happy with my body. To stop fighting with a weight problem...and to just be me. Not me DIETING, just me BEING.
I want to get dressed and feel great about what I see in the mirror.
I want to live actively and eat healthily. I want my daughter to view me as a positive motivation in her life to do the same as she gets older.
Oh, and I want to stay sexy for my husband too hahahaha
I aim for the low end of my caloric range which is currently 1200 - 1500.
I eat 4 - 5 times a day. Healthy, filling foods. I avoid red meat 99.5% of the time.
I enjoy occasional sugar free treats. Little chocolates, puddings, jello, cool whip with my fruit...and Weight Watchers ice cream type desserts.
I'm not on any "diet plan". Just your basic eat right and exercise plan. I eat as clean as possible.
I am not a first time dieter. I do not have pregnancy weight to lose. I am not experiencing a mid-life weight gain issue.
I have been overweight pretty much forever. Overweight kid, overweight teen....etc, etc.
I lost 50 pounds when I turned 30 because I just didn't like what I was looking like or how I was feeling. (2005)
Maintained for a while...and have since gained some of that weight back...about 20 something pounds by the time 2012 rolled around.
I remarried (2009), which led to some slacking off. I stopped working out and started eating like my husband! BAD IDEA!!! I am very jealous of his metabolism!!!!!! He kills me!
So, I'm back to business and trying to get that number down...down...down. As far as I can go.
I may get snagged here and there. But, this is my weight loss journey and it never ends.

“Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life’” ~ John 8:12, NASB.
John 8:12 is the passage God has given me as a life-goal for 2015. As I seek Him for a New Year’s BLESSing for you, it seems good to pray that you will have all the Light needed for the path ahead, dispelling all darkness, and giving you the light of day for each step ahead. Happy 2015!

I give thanks to God, the Father, for you as I pray for you today. May you know by experience God’s grace, spiritual favor and BLESSing today and every day, having heart peace from God the Eternal Father – that peaceful state of trust in Him to which He calls us; that soul harmony with Him that umpires life choices, heart desires, and questions of the mind. May He settle us with faith to trust Him. Have a BLESSed Thanksgiving, rested in Father. Loving you in Christ, Darlene.

Worry over the future breeds anxiety. Fretting over the past breeds depression. Both can stop our good movement forward and put us in front of the TV with a bad movie and too much of the stuff we don’t need to put into our bodies. That horrid cycle, of course, breeds regret and dread that brings us to more of the same. I believe that is called “insanity”.
Instead work to stay in the present taking the next step needed for living to the full the “now” that is before you, having learned better ways from past experience and pushing forward with hope that right action now will produce a better tomorrow. This is living life with power that produces a good outcome and protects our journey from wasting away.
Plan for the future, yes; but let the first plan be to live your best you in the now you have to possess.
