that workout glow!!
Me in May 2013, one year in and 63 pounds gone!
I am starting with renewed hope. I want to get back to walking as much as possible and find what works for me.
I have had to realize that what was working is no longer what I need to continue to lose weight. I am having to change things again.
Healthy eating, exercise, and positive people in my life. These are the most important in my life.
Taking my vitamins and trying to maintain good mental, emotional and physical health.
I have had a couple of bad years, setbacks and self sabatoge.
I am moving past it and trying so hard to stay on a positive path.
To spark daily and keep my goals realistic ones.
My goals are to get healthy, lower my blood pressure, lose weight and exercise in some form, daily...to stop stressing over small set backs and to live a longer more productive and joyful life....just for today I will try to achieve these.
Just for me!
walking, cutting out unhealthy foods, and did i mention, WALKING!!!
Secrets of Success
I LOVE when I read a comment and it literally makes me laugh out loud.
I can picture our "selves" getting lost in the Amazon and getting eaten by a snake because you wished them there.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. I think I feel bad enough about my dad's alcoholism that I don't want to go see a bunch of people emulate that, and then, when they're sloshed enough, to do a tribute to my mom and dad. I think they've gotten the wrong message. Glenn

Since I live in a suburb of Chicago, I can find pretty much anything I need, and I have choices. When I was in my late 20's, I was able to talk to mental health social workers. The cost was based on a sliding scale, and I paid $7 a session. The social worker were employed by either the state or the county, and the office was a 10 minute drive from home. Of course, the trade off is killer property taxes. Mine are gross.
I applaud you for taking 2 years to gain 20 pounds. Just recently, I managed to do that in less than 6 months. If I wasn't spending hours and hours in the gym, it frightens me to think how much I would weigh right now. I've been back in control for a total of 4 1/2 days. Being "this" close to 200 pounds scared me to death. Even so, on Monday, I wanted to give up and give into a life of junk food. Thankfully, those thoughts fled pretty quickly. I'm getting too old to be this fat.
If you can't do everything, try to do a little of something. Get a streak going on something as simple as wall push ups. It helps and keeps you moving in the right direction. Being committed to the gym has been, literally, a life saver. Don't wait until you're almost 67 to make permanent changes in your life. If you did it before, you can do it again.
