Here I am at the beginning of a new year.. a clean slate , a fresh start! It does not matter what I did last year, last month, last night! I love new beginnings! I do not have to worry or think about the past.. It is the past, let it go and embrace today.. The future I deserve and the future I will create one day at a time by making right decisions this moment forward!
I have a plan .. I want to first set myself up for success... I am on track with my eating, I have a work out buddy for accountability, I let my support system know what I expect from them, and most importantly what I expect from myself!
One of my favorite Christmas gifts this year is 6 weeks with a personal trainer! Woo Hoo!! I am excited
With my plan in place, I have weighed in... That was hard, but it is my new starting place, and I have to own it if I am to move on from here.. I am not depressed and I am not shocked, but I was disappointed with myself... Sometimes relapse is apart of success. In the past I would not have stopped myself until I gained at least 100 pounds.. I have learned a lot about myself, and that I do not have to do what I have always done.. I am different and I am on a journey that has no end.. Just a lot of fun, excitement, tears, and laughter... I will and I am enjoying my journey!

Since I struggle more to stay on track on the weekends I got up and had a plan...I made a great healthy breakfast, tracked my calories, and now I am headed out to the gym... It is going to be a great weekend.. I am convinced that planning ahead and staying on the plan is the key to success.. I am ready for what ever the day brings : ) It is all about the little victories that add up to the overall success of this journey... Let's keep moving forward!

I made this commitment to myself that I would track my calories, and that I would go to the gym everyday this week.. no matter what... I did not let myself off the hook! No excuses! No matter how tired I was, or no matter how stressful, or long my work day was, and I DID IT! I will continue to build success on success until I find my way back!
Today is my sister's birthday... I originally started this journey after we lost her to heart disease and diabetes.. She was just 40 years old, and she left two young daughters behind for us to love and watch grow into beautiful young women! So today is bitter sweet... I celebrate her, and thank her for waking me up, and really starting me on this journey.. I have kept 160 of the 200 pounds off that I have lost! I love you Holly, and I honor your memory with my life style change, and the way that I really appreciate life, and the people God has blessed me with to share in this journey!

It has been a long time since my last entry... I have decided that I will write something everyday. I have really struggled, but I have not given up. I have put some weight on recently and have a lot of stress, but that is no excuse to resort to old behaviors... so this is my story back! I worked my program today, I went to the gym, and decided no matter what happens, no matter how stressful life is, no matter how tired I am.. I am back on the priority list. I am going to take care of me everyday : )
I am strong. I am smart. I am successful. I am worth it! I can do this!
