I need an attitude adjustment. Over the last year I gradually reverted to my old eating habits and regained 10 of the 20 pounds I lost.

Instead of a negative attitude focused on what I don't want--to regain weight, outgrow my clothes again, feel old and frumpy and out of shape--I need to focus on the positive.

Fitness Minutes: 81,830

My Goals:
My short term goal is to fit into the clothes in my closet.

Long term goal is to grow old without depending on medication. Most health problems of the people I know are directly related to poor choices.

My Program:
I exercise and drink 4+ liters of water every day. I am trying to get in the habit of keeping a food journal. I want to cut back on soda and eating in front of the TV.

Personal Information:
My name is Teresa Slack. I write Christian fiction from my home in southern Ohio. My husband Ralph and I have an extended family of 3 kids and 3 grandkids. We are currently empty nesters (highly recommended) and share our home with two rescue dogs, Molly and Angel. Check out the adoption and rescue page on my website to see how to feature your furry friends.



Other Information:
Visit me on my website at http://www.teresaslack.com to learn more about me and my books.

Evidence of Grace, Book 3 of my Jenna's Creek series debuted nationwide at #18 in the Christian market. My first best seller list. Woo Hoo!

I haven't been faithful with messaging my friends. I plan to improve. Old behavior had me waiting until I had it "all together" Well it is a journey and I will continue to strive for my goals. Merry Christmas! You are an inspirationg! emoticon

Hi Teresa! Just wanted to tell you I saw a quote you put on the Writer's Support Group page. I have posted it on my desk because it really speaks to me. "Write because you can't NOT write." So true. Whoever said that words don't matter was crazy. Thank you so much. Angela
