Welcome! I'm glad you stopped by for a visit ~

I'm on a journey to embrace healthy new habits and lead a more active and vital lifestyle. I have let carelessness and bad habits accumulate for too long, now I'm so motivated to make some life changes.

I'm the mom of many and have been caring for everyone else for the last 20 years. My focus was on them, especially when they were little. Now I have a bit more time for me, and I'm devoting it to getting myself in order, a personal renaissance.

I'm moving more, eating less, and achieving the fitness level I desire and feel good about. I want my outside to match my inside -- strong, smart, and sassy -- and I'm on my way.

I lost 60 pounds in 2007, and I'm planning to lose 60 more in 2008. I'm up to 8 miles for my weekly long run. My BMI has gone from 42 to 32, heading for 22. I have no doubt I will achieve my goals.

By Christmas 2008 I will own the shape and fitness level I'm going to retain, the new me, the real me. This year I'm changing my life for good.

My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner! It's not difficult once you become focused, educated, and motivated.

I hope you are achieving your goals, too. If not, go for it! What are you waiting for?
