One day I decided to make a change...

I've witnessed too many people around me suffer medical problems because they don't lead healthy lives. I don't want to lose loved ones, or suffer myself. I want to do something while I can. That, and I'd like to wear the clothes I like. :)

My Goals:
I want to be healthy. I want to not worry about the strength of chairs. I want to not worry about squeezing into airplane seats. I want to not have to shop in the plus size department and pay more for my clothes. I want to not be breathless after walking up some stairs.

My Program:
My plan is to start with portion control. I will curb my impulse eating, especially late at night and on my days off. Even though I'm not the biggest exercise fan, I will get moving to help those pounds melt off.

Personal Information:
I'm in my early thirties. I've been chubby most my life. I've witnessed close friends and family experience life-threatening illnesses because of unhealthy lifestyles, and I don't want to be next.

Other Information:
Movie fan. Classic movie buff. Bookworm. Tattoo enthusiast. Strategically pierced. Dog person. Liberal. Happy cook. Always learning.

Hi there! I've never made these particular bars before. Found a recipe from Alton Brown on the Food Network website. I already doctored it on paper - reducing the sugar, adding more flavor, etc. Once it cools down I'll be making the bars. If I like what I make, I'll happily share the recipe with you. If not, you'll have to wait till I perfect it! :-0

Just so that you know, one of his goals was to make the bars more nutritious compared to the commercially available ones...but they looked too sweet for my taste.

I haven't quite figured out when I'll buy new clothes. Fortunately, I have clothes I haven't been able to wear hanging around my closet. I'm not going to totally splurge for a while, though. Thanks for the blog comment and have a great day!

Ha! You're going to laught at me but I don't have a "green thumb" but a "green ear." I can hear plants calling me when they are thirsty and when they need fertilizer. The only time I've ever killed plants (house plants or garden plants) is when I'm depressed and cannot hear anything, not even my own misery. LOL

Thank you for the Spark Goodie. I am cooking lots of vegetables, too, after a good trip to the farmer's market Saturday morning.
