Christmas 2011 (Me)
October 29, 2011-Storm Alfred Damage in CT
Christmas 2011-At The Governor's Residence (me, Gov. Malloy, Steve)
Shared Food Tracker
I'm originally from the south, but I've lived in CT for the past sixteen years, so this is home for me and my husband. I've gained a lot of weight over the past ten years, and I'm tired of making excuses (mostly to myself) for not eating right, exercising, etc. I am determined that this will be the year that I finally do something about that!
I hope to lose weight so that I will feel healthier and have more energy. My short-term goal is to lose about 20 lbs. by my next birthday this May, and my longer term goal is to lose a total of 43 lbs. by the end of this year.
I am trying to cut out sugar (except for natural sugars) and unhealthy fats from my meals, eat smaller portions, more fruits & veggies. My exercise (to begin with) will be primarily walking, then I'll add some strength training to the mix.
I live in Connecticut and am happily married to a great guy, Steve.
I love to garden, and some of my other interests/hobbies include cooking, crocheting, reading, photography, decorating, and scrapbooking.
One of my favorite quotes...
"Courage doesn't always roar; sometimes courage is the voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow"

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog and sharing your story. I agree with your analysis of the situations. Even if I didn't agree, I know you are the type of person that would allow me to have my own opinion which I think makes you an awesome person.

Hi, and welcome to fighting fibro, Good luck with your weight goal, I know you can do it! Sometimes it's harder to lose the weight with fibro., due to the face that sometimes we can't be as active as we like, and often the meds we take can cause weight gain. We need to find the secret that works for us and use it, then we can do it! I see you love to garden, I do too and this is a great tool when the weather breaks! just don't over do it, or you'll pay for it the next day! Take care and again Gentle Hugs !
