This is gonna work!

Hi, my name is Janet. I am totally jazzed at the thought of being healthy again! I used to be a healthy weight and full of energy. I hit some stressful times in my mid-20s that took a toll on my health and weight. About 9 years ago I trained for the 60-mile breast cancer walk and lost 50 lbs. It felt amazing. But right after, another bout of trauma and stress sent me back to bad habits.

Here I am, today ... 48 years old and READY to do this!!! Though I've had so many ups and downs ...

Here I am, today ... 48 years old and READY to do this!!! Though I've had so many ups and downs with health (incl ovarian cancer - I'm a survivor!) and weight, I've never stopped wondering, "What if" I could be my healthy self again. I believe it's time. This is gonna work!

My Goals:
I'd like the scale to read 123 and I'd love to feel the energy and exhilaration of being in shape. I haven't forgotten what it feels like. I'm ready to be there again. I'm training for the Susan G. Komen 60-mile walk for October 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia. And a 5K this winter. I'm excited. This is gonna work!

My Program:
Get to the gym in the morning. Be mindful of what I eat. Drink water. Rest. Stay enthusiastic. Be caring of myself. Trust God. CHOOSE LIFE!!!

I think all of us have had periods of time for both stress and overeating and then periods of good health. One of the most helpful quotations for me is "It doesn't matter how many times you fall; what matters is how many times you get up.' And then there's the comparison to a child learning to walk. They take a few steps, fall on the their rear end, maybe even cry. What they don't do is say "I guess I'll never walk!" They just keep persisting. Those two pictures really help me.

Merry Christmas!
