Still at it ;)

In 2008 I lost 50 pounds and was extremely fit I even ran a marathon, yup just over 42 km(26.2 miles) I kept it off for a year or so, then gradually gained 40 back. I said enough already and lost 30 pounds, and then, you guessed it, the scale once again started it's upward climb and I gained 13 pounds back. So 2013 brought a new resolve to lose the weight once and for all, I lost the 13 pounds but here I sit still trying to lose 35 pounds.
What am I going to do differently this year? ...

What am I going to do differently this year? I have hired a personal trainer to get me through the strength training which I keep putting off . I have restarted my running program that a back injury put a halt to last spring, and I have my lovely fit bit (which I have become addicted to) to keep a running total of the calories I my or may not consume and of course my fantastically supportive spark friends.

Hope you are doing well on the BL Challenge...just stopping by with a thought for the day and some encouragement from one of the LOVELY LIMES!

The only way you get that fat off is to eat less and exercise more.

I've realized that I'm more important than food is. I love a big slice of pizza, but I love myself more. Being thin is about changing the way you think about yourself. It's about saying that you deserve to be healthy.
