I've been back and forth a couple of times but this time feels different. I'm in a mindset that says I'm ready to be a thinner, healthier me. I know it won't be easy and I know there will be days that question what I'm doing or "fall off the wagon" but it will only be for that day or even part of the day.

I'm 53 years, married mother of two almost grown daughters. I am a teacher of English as a Foreign Language in Jerusalem.

update 7.11.14 - I've been losing. watching, exercising (when my heel isn't acting up), drinking water and tea (pretty much off coffee and diet soda!) and enjoying the comments on how good I look. I've still got a long way to go but I moving in the right direction. What more can I ask? Taking it one day at a time!

update 1.12.14 - I lost 10 pounds in 10 weeks as a proud member of the Amazing Amethysts in the Fall 2014 "Biggest Loser Challenge" and now, colors have changed but the goal is the same! Winter 2015 Freeze - Golden Phoenix! Working away at those next 10 pounds!

update 25.2.15 - the winter has been hard. my heel is not good so I haven't been exercising. company, snow and lousy weather have had my inside more than I would have liked. my weight is stuck around the 80kg mark - with considerable ups and downs. hopefully, today is the first day of the change. let's hope so!
