Spring into Action challenge 1

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Well as part of this week challenge I will tell you a little about myself. My name is Christine and I have been married to my wonderful husband 24 years. We live in the western part of KY and love our families and lives. We never had children but I helped to raise two of my nieces and have several great nieces and nephews.
I have battled my weight pretty much my entire adult life. I have done nearly every diet possible at one time or another. This is the longest I have ever "stuck" with anything and for
the first time in years and years I have............. HOPE! Yes that beautiful word..... hope ! Hope of a better life, a more fit life, a more content life. I want to be a better wife , daughter and child of God. I can already see a light at the end of the tunnel and my excitement is currently spurring me on to better things I hope. I have been a diet soda, potato chip junkie for years and now I have one diet soda a day and eat chips only occasionally. WOW....... did I just really say that ??? I have now eaten an apple a day for over 6 months ! Yippee for me!

I am very excited to be planning a wonderful trip to Alaska in July. It will be an early 25th wedding anniversary celebration with the Hubs ! I really want to be closer to a overweight BMI instead of obese BMI by then but we'll see ! I will be smaller and that's a good thing !!
That's my motivation besides my actual anniversary which is in Sept this year !

So hold me back because I am off and running to reach MORE goals and a better life!!

    Woohoo congrats on kicking some bad habits. I had a serious soda addiction, gave it up for 2 years and just recently have been letting it creep back. Keep up the good work.

    How fun that you are going to Alaska!
