That Girl!

READY TO LIVE LIFE AGAIN!

Last year, on January 2nd...at 7:26am I said GOODBYE to 28 years of my pack & a half daily smoking habit.

This was the beginning of my search for that healthier, stronger me. In terms of my weight..I spent most of my life trying to GAIN weight. I graduated high school weighing ONLY 84 lbs.

Well my 40s hit and I ignored the changes in my metabolism and just kept eating what I wanted and however MUCH I wanted. Late 40s...add ...
READY TO LIVE LIFE AGAIN!

Last year, on January 2nd...at 7:26am I said GOODBYE to 28 years of my pack & a half daily smoking habit.

This was the beginning of my search for that healthier, stronger me. In terms of my weight..I spent most of my life trying to GAIN weight. I graduated high school weighing ONLY 84 lbs.

Well my 40s hit and I ignored the changes in my metabolism and just kept eating what I wanted and however MUCH I wanted. Late 40s...add hot flashes & the weight gain that is associated with that age zone and you could stick a folk in me!

Well at 4,11 and ballooning up to 141 lbs and no longer being able to fit into any of my 8 pairs of size 4 or size 6 petite blue jeans... enough was ENOUGH!

EXPECTATIONS:

I don't expect it to be easy...I mean, I've had...years of practice in disrespecting my body via smoking and gaining weight by eating junk food and NOT GIVING my body the exercise it needed. Well, now, I'm portioning my food and I exercise daily for 60+ minutes.

Currently I follow LESLIE SANSONE'S "Walk Away The Pounds" series and I do 4 miles daily. I've also started to explore more challenging cardio videos like Violet Zaki. A lot of sweat & tears are going into my healthy lifestyle plan...and I don't regret a moment of it.

I know that it will take time but my inner determination soars HIGH and I'm not stopping until I find "That Girl" again.
