I decided this week that it is time for Fat Girl to take a hike for good! I have carried her around since I was about 10 and I am done with her. I can always blame her for binges, and why I can't lost the last 5 lbs, and for, well, just about everything. No more scape goat! I am close to 40 and I am taking full accountability and responsibility. It is me and no one else so get out Fat Girl so the thin woman that God created me to be can come out and shine.

When I am sick of eating healthy, I like to get out my healthy cookbooks & look through them for ideas. The pictures look so yummy that it is hard not to get motivated to get back on track. I always seem to find something new & delicious.
I like Hungry Girl cookbooks the best!
Every time I start to feel self-conscious about being the fattest girl at the gym, I remind myself at least I'm there. It's better to be the fat girl at the gym than living the stereotype of sitting on my sofa eating a bag of chips.
Retirement starts with that first paycheck. OHHHH it was so hard in the beginning not to want to spend that little pile of cash. Even though the extra annuity checks went bye bye with the market, what we saved is supporting us now. I am so happy we were not foolish in the beginning as I never knew it would turn out this good. Remember to pay yourself first and then don't touch it - forget it's there.
