I started seriously changing my lifestyle in Jan. 2010. Did real well with staying within calorie range and lost 27 pounds in just 5 months. Then summer happened, then budget cuts, more stress at work...and I stalled out on my momentum and motivation.
Library expansion back injury ( summer 2012) put a screeching halt to my exercise program and I plummeted into bad eating choices and lost my "want to".
It's now July 2017. I will regain my strength. I will recharge my healthy momentum. I will overcome the challenges of physical mobility limitations and be victorious.


I'm looking forward to achieving results one small change at a time.

*Stay positive and encourage others along the way.

    You are so welcome! I'm so happy to see how well you are doing, and motivating you encourages me to keep going myself :) SP really hit it right on the head with their idea about the importance of a sense of community for successful weight loss and life change. I love it!

    Oh, and I love your new pictures. You are a goofball! Really cute though. On another note- I'm so jealous that you guys get out of school so early! I'll be stuck here until June 11th! Grrr! 3 more days until my Spring Break, so I will focus on that for now :) Have a great week and enjoy your Resurrection Sunday if I don't talk to you before then!
