It's now 2014 so I guess it's time for an update since I'm renewing my weight loss journey after becoming one of "those" people... you know, the ones that drop a bunch of weight and then over time gain it back.

I lost 50 pounds in 2011 by eating healthy foods and working out at the gym. By the end of 2013 I had gained back all but 10 pounds though. Several things lead to the gain... health issues, family health issues, stress, major changes at work, and a whole lot of excuses. I am an emotional eater... I eat when I'm happy or sad or mad or stressed. I also have a tendency to get lazy... because I tend to forget how much better I feel when I'm exercising regularly.

In 2014, I hope to find a better way to deal with stress, etc. so I can lose the weight and keep it off this time!

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond imagination. It is our light more than our darkness which scares us. We ask ourselves - who are we to be brilliant, beautiful, talented, and fabulous? But honestly, who are you to not be so?

~Marianne Williamson

"Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."

My Goals:
Get healthier
* Lower BP
* Lower Cholesterol
* Lower Weight
* Lower BMI

I am not sure what the magic number will be for me, because I still want to have some curves! I just want to get to a healthier weight to lessen my health risks... and I want to feel comfortable in my own skin.

My Program:
I am doing it the old fashioned way... eating healthy and exercising!

Thanks Winnie, I really was. I remember a friend telling me I was glowing when I was deep into it.

Thanks for the green tea goodie ... I'm feeling much better now ... a little chicken noodle soup helped me on my way as well. Thanks, again, for thinking of me.
