I'm working toward becoming a better me.

I was successful in 2011 with a challenge at the school where I worked and in 2014 I was a winner in a community challenge. Not that I lost the most weight, but I was consistent in three areas: tracking food eaten, weighing in, and tracking activity. Each of those successful events were because I was REALLY, really focused on what I ate and making sure to keep moving.

Life has ways of changing our focus. Right now I am trying to focus on a leaner me and a leaner collection of "things" in our household. I left work in October, 2015 because I realized I was not happy there. I have stayed happily busy getting things done around the house, but will be looking to go back to work.

I know eating vegetables and to keep moving are the avenues for a better life. I have a huge sugar addiction which I am constantly battling, and am recovering from a knee injury which I sustained while participating in a Breast Cancer walk in the fall of 2014. That injury really de-railed my progress and I pretty much gained back all of the weight I had taken off.

My husband and I are trying the DASH diet. Phase I was very successful. Now I think we may be eating too much. I am following Heller's Action Plan at the 1600 calorie level. I am looking forward to hearing from buddies on the DASH team.

    Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. There's going to be a new entry later in the week. I've been doing my water thing for years now so that's nothing new. I have horrible acne as a kid and if I'd known then how important just drinking enough water is for healthier skin, I would have been doing it then. My cuticles aren't as dry anymore, even my oily skin is under far better control. It all matters.

    And yes, that budget is no joke. I have a pretty classic look so while it's not old and dowdy, I do LIKE my style and don't feel the need to buy a bunch of new stuff all the time. I'll add a skirt, jeans, dresses and shirts now and again but there's just no way in h*ll that I ever plan to keep purging my wardrobe for every pound.

    But also keep in mind that the safety net you talk about, of not wanting to get rid of the old larger clothes for hubby...don't hang on to that too long. Seriously. Doctor Oz talked about that, too, I think. If you're committed, BE committed and let it go. I got rid of some stunning clothes that I had from way back that were size 2 or 4 because I was in my 20s and I don't plan to go back there. However, when I lose 20 pounds, certain clothes that have no stretch and won't fit me well are gonna go bye-bye. I do not want a safety net. I wanna get up on that tightwire and fight to balance!!
