I want to be healthier, have more energy and enjoy life completely. My weight has been a roller coaster all my life. I'm determined to stop that ride.

Even when I was younger and doing gymnastics through high school, I was heavier than most. I didn't worry about my weight, never really thought about it. Getting out of school and a job really reduced my activity and the weight piled on.

12.27.12 - I'm back, never should have left. After dislocating my ankle almost 2 years ago, I managed to keep the weight off - for a while. Then it started finding me again. This yo-yo thing has to stop.

Besides the motivation to be healthier (I actually do eat that way but those damn carbs tempt me so), lower BP, etc. I have a new one. On November 1st, 2013 I will be going on a transatlantic cruise and I need to be lighter and fit for this. We will be doing a lot of sight seeing (walking) and I don't want to be huffing all the way through it.

I've done the crazy diets - popcorn, jello, bananas and water during the week, everything on the weekends - and they worked but I know they were not healthy. I always laughed about "counting calories" but have finally realized it is the best way to do it.

Exercise is important too. I mainly walk because the cost of a gym membership is not really in the budget. My daughters school has a track and I can use it. Of course the weather is an issue.

I will do this!

    You are welcome!

    The "like" function is a button on the friend feed. If you're on the start page, look on the right hand side and down a little where it says "My Friend Feed." There will be a few updates, and below that is a link that says "View Full Friend Feed" or something along those lines. Click the link, and you should be able to view people's updates along with an "I liked this!" button on most of the updates. Hit the button and you've got it.
    Let me know if that's more confusing than helpful, hehe. emoticon
