Slowly Losing Weight and Getting Healthy


I'm making this a lifestyle change not a diet!

Dieting always leads to NOT dieting which equals gaining it all back. I am done with that!
It took years to develop my bad habits and I expect it will take years to develop my healthier habits.
I am working on it! I will never give up!
I will get down to a normal weight!

In 2013 I will weigh in EVERY Wednesday.
I will try to lose every week. It's OK when I don't!

I am enjoying hiking most Fridays with my hubby. We are doing about 4- 12 miles each time. We have explored some amazing places!

I go to the gym twice a week. Most weeks.

I have a chronic bladder condition that sometimes limits my activities. I will not let it stop me!

Veggies have become a much bigger part of my diet and hubby, who does most of our cooking, is on board with this change. He has perfected a yummy garlicky veggie mix that we have most nights with dinner and I have in my lunch the next day. Now I am mixing them in with scrambled eggs too.

I still struggle with junk food, especially in the evenings. I need to work on that!

I work as an assistant manager/truck driver at a distribution center in Kent. I get to drive a pretty blue tractor /trailer.



I like to explore, hike, garden and travel.

There are many wonderful hiking trails not far from my home in Tacoma that I visit often.
I also hike at Mount Rainier every chance I get.
Now that fall is here we are hiking around North Bend. We are loving exploring the trails there.

Thanks for reading my blog Wendy. I wasn't sure if I should tell everyone or not, but it is what it is! I have no choice but to deal with it. I need to be healthy now. I always saw myself living to be OLD. But this makes you stop and see that we never know how much or how little time we have and I want to live the rest of my life (Lord willing a LONG life)the healthiest and happiest I can.

You are doing great with all your hikes keep it up. emoticon

Hi Wendy, we are both on the hiking team so I thought I would introduce myself! I'm Kelly and I live in Kent. It would be fun to have a team hike sometime!

See you around the hiking team page! emoticon
