My issues with being overweight started when I was around 8 years old. I never learned what portion control was or how to alleviate stress with something other than food. 5 years ago I finally decided to face the inevitable: I am addicted to food. Since then I have struggled with a 50 pound weight loss, only to gain 40 of it back. BUT - I must have learned something along the way - because I DIDN'T gain it all back and I've STOPPED myself before the addiction controlled my life again. Furthermore, I am proud to say that my amazing husband wants to walk with me on this journey! We will be partners on this crazy "lifestyle change"...and I am truly excited! Here's to an AMAZING 2015!!!

    Hi there!

    Yep, still a WaveRunner! I don't blog too often but I do post in the "chatterbox". I participate in the challenges and have completed each. I did start late so I missed week 1 but have kept up since. Oh, what is the 5 day challenge starting on Mon. I must have missed the email. I know what the main challenge is..now, the bonus challenge that goes with that is NOT the 5 days challenge, right? See, I'm still trying to get everything straight.. emoticon So, if u could let me know. Maybe the email hasn't even gone out yet...Well,have yourself a great night!

    My birthday is July 6, 1975.

    See u around the threads!

    Let's go WaveRunners! emoticon

    Have a great weekend! How did u do on your challenges this weekend, my fellow WaveRunner? Did u get a clean 50 on everything? I ended up gaining 2 lbs. but if u read my blog you'll understand why... emoticon

    BUT,on a happier note, I'm starting a food journal so I can have it in front of my face at all times so I can see just what I'm eating. OOHH...scary..Lol. Maybe that'll help me lose that 2pounds quicker. I have a tendency to hit plateaus. So, fingers crossed this isn't another one!

    See u around the threads!
