JD and I on our wedding day in December, 2006.
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I am back. This last year has been tough, personally and professionally, and my weight has soared. I am letting go of the shame as of today, and putting myself back together. No blame either! I watched a Suze Orman program today on Women and Wealth, and my favorite quote was "You are a warrior and you are not to turn your back on the battlefield." Well, I am not going to turn my back on this battlefield, this is the year I am going to turn this weight problem around and just be done with letting this rule my life.
Mu goal is to be healthy and to find balance and harmony, and with that, allow my inner beauty to shine. I want to be comfortable with myself again.
Is going to consist of eating healthy at the right porportions, cutting out fat and sugar, and getting regular exercise.
I am a 43 year old mom. I have 3 kids and have been married 6 years. I am the Advertising Director of the Wenatchee World and an AdvoCare Distributore.

Thanks for the positive comment on my first walk. Since then, I've not been able to walk because of an upslip in my hip and plantar fasciitis. This really discouraged me to say the least. I'm allowed to do 5 minute walks at a slower pace, so I'm using my treadmill for that. My physiotherapist said after about a month I should be able to start walking again.
So, how did your walk to work go? Be patient with yourself and do what you can, then say aloud in a proud voice "I DID IT! GOOD FOR ME!" I know it can be disheartening when you want to do something and can't, but patience, my dear, patience. Now, if I could only remember that for myself!
Let me know how your walk to work went. I'm rooting for you!

Wendy, you WILL succeed in your goal of better health! Your attitude is one of determination and gentleness to yourself. With that combination, you will be triumphant. Remember that there will be slips and be kind with yourself. If you can get this 80% of the time, you're a success! Good luck and remember, you are not alone on this journey!
