Lord thank you for your grace and mercy in guiding my steps, particularly on days when it felt easier to grab a bag of kettle bbq chips (those things are entirely too good) until I reached the bottom of the bag. Iíd be a fool not to give God the glory for my life because it could be so different and yet it is what it is and I am grateful for it.

Iíve battled what I thought were weight issues all my life and quite honestly, I am certain a good portion of it was my own manifestation of insecurity and not recognizing the beauty of my own curves. Well look at me now Ö Iím still curvy and yet Iíve grown in and out of them over the years and my outlook now is so many degrees healthier.

What Iíve learned Ö

That no particular size or weight is going to make me PERFECT, but God loves me anyway!
That I want my daughter to walk upright and proud of who she is and confident of her full being!
That Iím on to these magazine covers and their air brushed tactics, shame on you!
That eating a well balanced diet, enjoying exercise and living a full life isnít so bad.
That being a former athlete doesnít mean I have to run 5 miles a day, but it sure would be nice.
That Iím probably always going to eat something fried when I feel like it.
That Iím not afraid of spandex and itís not afraid of me.
That Jillian Michaels has made me sweat buckets over the past few months and Iím not mad at her about it.
That the PX90 guy haunts my dreams, but I am going to master something in that program if I have to knock on his door myself and say HEY HOW DO YOU DO THAT AGAIN?
That trying new foods is exciting.
That Iím probably never going to like tuna fish.
That Iím glad that I donít have it in me to give up.
That losing 30lbs wasnít easy and I donít imagine that losing the last 25lbs will be any easier.
That itís all good, because I will cherish the journey and the VICTORY!

My Goals:
My goals are to lose another 25lbs and remain consistent with my workouts (cardio, weight training and eating a bit more sensible).

My Program:
What I'm doing to help me reach my goals ...

Running, hill work, stairs, weight training, Jillian Michaels and shaking it up a bit with Power 90 workouts.

My results have been slow but on going and I essentially get back what I put into my workouts.
