The move is DONE. A big goal met! But selling the "old" condo has been a rough ride. I am dealing with problems and have to be diligent about caring for myself. Hoping not eating gluten/sugar will help my mood, pain, energy level. GOAL: Reduce A1C,BP,tryglicerides,and weight. HOW? Low carb plan with lots of veggies and water aerobics at least 3X week. I was doing this but moving stress has halted my good habits. Time to get this going again. I am worth it.
35 Days since: gluten and sugar

You can do it and welcome! Be patient with yourself and love yourself. Pat
I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

First and foremost, my name is Krystal and I am 25 years old. I am starting this journey tipping the scales ove 200 lbs. I can remember a time when I never had to worry about what I ate, but that seems like forever ago. My "normal" weight used to be 150 lbs, standing at 5'5. However, after 3 kids, college, work, a fiance, and a home to take care of; I stopped worrying about me. I have tried to lose weight over and over again, and it works (as long as I am commited), but I can't stay commited long enough to lose all of the weight. I am hoping this site will help keep up my motivation, since I don't have any one else to motivate me. Here goes nothing! My name is Krystal and I am starting this weight loss journey at 212 lbs, with a goal of 150lbs; 62 lbs to lose!
