PhotoShop "glow" effect. I wish I could photoshop my actual self each morning :-)

Me with my two BFFs around 170lbs or so. The pudge is hidden under the sweatshirt.

New glasses. I love them so much I don't wear contacts any more. Who'd have thunk?

    Hi Peggy - thanks for your comment on my blog. I'd say it's a mix of friends pressuring me and me feeling awkward about it - leaning heavily on the me feeling awkward about it more than anything. Thanks for the suggestions about how to dodge the drinking when I don't want to situation - I know what you mean about not wanting to make the focus of the conversation my health choices or imply any judgment about my friends. It definitely helps to hear some strategies.

    Thank you for answering my edamame questions. Ok; I will try them steamed in the pod. I like the snack idea that way. I usually enjoy them on salads. emoticon

    Hi Peggy!
    No, you are definately not alone! We all struggle sometimes. Changing your life takes time and won't all happen at once, as I'm sure you know.... I have found that focusing on one or two small changes at a time works best for me. When they become a habit, I move on to the next. One of the first, and to this day, most important, changes I made was to keep in the front of my mind that everything I do is a "choice." Noticing what your doing or are about to do is a huge step in the right direction. I hope you are having a better week!
