Journey of 1000 miles....

Like many people here, I've lost a lot of weight in my life, yet I've never been able to permanently keep it off. In May of 2008 my annual physical revealed how much damage I was doing to my health. I'm determined to live an active and full life, and so I'm building a healthy body to make the journey in.

Great job!! I believe you are an inspiration to all. I am on a similar road with an ultimate goal of 90-100 lbs to lose.

Good morning emoticon
Thank you for stopping by my page! So far, I've had no issues with not logging my food. It's working for ME and I'm glad of that. I'm out of the weight loss zone right now, and just trying to live a healthier life.

Have a good day,
Mackenzie

Thanks for the comment on my blog! Nope, never saw those before. But there's no Whole Foods anywhere near sadly (sadly I say because I used to live in Austin, the home of Whole Foods).

Oh, and did I mention my love of chocolate?

But I will keep an eye out.

I have be MIA for quite awhile. I was your post to my blog - the one about letting those occasional treats become daily treats. I'm still wrestling with the same 3-4 pounds and have been for many months. However, like you I continue to workout nearly everyday. I've also tried a trainer mainly to learn new exercises. It helped some. I'm at a new gym now that offers many classes. That is giving me some variety. I like to do 45 on the stairmaster, then follow up with a pilates class.

I know I need to log my food again, but not ready to commit to that yet. I'll start after the holidays and bust out of this plateau.

You are an inspiration. Thanks for being there. Willa
