I am here to talk through the weight loss and getting healthy process. I now have about 30 more pounds I want to lose, having lost the first 100.

I started at the 100+ lbs. stage that I want to lose and as I am early in my forties and my daughter is in college, it is time to start this next phase of my life in a much more healthy manner.

I was in great shape until I had my daughter and became much less active. As I got older it became harder and harder to be more active as physical constraints came about. My daughter now sees me in good shape and I wear the same size she does, though we have different shapes. I motivated her to lose weight and get healthier.

My Goals:
My drive exists because this journey is all about me. There isn't anyone else who can do this for me. It is finally my time and I want to live life to the fullest and that finally means making myself a priority and taking care of me.

You really have to decide that 1. you are worth it and 2. you are ready.

I am so ready to not let my health or my weight hold me back.

You can get there too! Your mind has to change before your body will follow!

My Program:
I am eating a lot less fat and my main goal is to drink water since I really don't like to.

I need to really do a lot more exercise because I have been slacking.

Personal Information:
The things you want are always possible; it is just that the way to get them is not always apparent. The only real obstacle in your path to a fulfilling life is you, and that can be a considerable obstacle because you carry the baggage of insecurities and past experience.

Other Information:
I need to find out how to work around tendonitis in both feet, carpal tunnel and extremely low B12 (thus energy) levels.

update: neither of these are an issue anymore!

    haha, I have no idea why it said vodka! I'm going to try it though, I think it looks cool. I'm going to a wedding tomorrow - how neat would it be to have vows on my nails? No one would be able to tell except me, but I would feel pretty stylin! :-)
