Day 1

Thursday, February 07, 2013

You know that expression "Today will be the first day of the rest of your life" ? I feel like that today. I looked in the mirror and thought, how did 30lbs 'magically' get here without my noticing. I'm not getting any younger and with my quarter of a century birthday around the corner really it was now or never.

I'm a little scared and nervous that I won't succeed. A couple of years ago I did manage to drop a lot of weight with the help of Herbal Magic, but clearly wasn't successful at keeping it off. I want something that I will be able to sustain and take with me for the rest of my life. Plus, I don't have the money to pay for all those pills again, and clearly don't have the money for any of the other quick-fix solutions out there right now.

I'm just me, and want to find the better part of me.

I hope that once I learn to love myself, I will hopefully learn to let someone else also love me.

Here's to the beginning of the rest of my life.

    And (LOL) there are no quick fixes. Take it from a person who is rapidly approaching her half century mark!

    Check out Renee Stephens IOWL podcasts. She deals with with the "inner issues of outer transformation" and believe me it has nothing to do with pills or potions or even carbs vs. proteins!

    There is a IOWL (Inside Out Weight Loss) Spark Team - disclaimer - I am a leader - with links to her podcasts and chat boards where you can support and be supported.

    Best wishes and take good care,
