My Health Journey

**After surpassing my goal, I have now gained back EVERY bit of weight I lost and more.

I'm working on taking better care of myself again. My goal is to be as healthy as I can. It's frustrating to be back at the larger size but I know that I can do better. I've got to manage stress better and make the commitment to consistently CHOOSE health over comfort.

Trying to make lasting changes in 2014.

Thanks for your kind & supportive words on my blog. Yeah, I keep telling myself not to do weight loss challenges, but then one pops up & I forget!

Hey hey! Thanks for the encouragement! I'm pleased with my 11 lbs lost, but as you've said, I'll "work that out" with strength training. I was going more cardio-heavy over the past couple of months to bring my weight down, so now I need to ramp up the strength side!

Happy Tuesday!

Thank you for stopping by at my blog on the stomach pain! You are right, we need to change the life stressors that we can change, and learn to accept the other. Have a nice Sunday.
