I'm happy that my daughters don't draw me fat.

I turned fifty years old in May 2015. I have finally figured out how to change my lifestyle. Cooking 90% of the time, keeping a food journal, staying within my calorie/fat/protein/carb ranges, exercise 3x week. I am becoming healthy, energetic, and flexible. I am able to enjoy activities like Just Dance with my 10-year-old twin girls, bike rides with my family at the beach, hiking on mountain trails.

I am blogging because it helps me think through things. It''''s not just a diet, it''''s a lifestyle. The scale has no hold on me, it''''s just one of many measures of my health, energy, and attitude.

If you fall off the healthy wagon for a while, no big deal. Just jump back in when you can. Reread your blogs. Re-dedicate you to yourself. It''s a journey.

The only one you are really accountable to is you.

Never feel guilty taking time away from your family to exercise. Your fitness will provide better quality time with them later!
