Hi, my name is Liz and I am working my way back to a healthy way of life. Having been overweight all of my adult life, I have decided that the now or never time has come. I am striving to be a better me in all ways and have fun in the process.

I've been very lax in my eating and exercise habits fo awhile now. I've gained back about 40 of the 60 pounds I had lost. I've had some physical problems, back and other things that have made it difficult to get moving again. But I am ready to go back at it as much as my health will allow at this point. I've dusted off my food scale, found the dreaded weight scale and have gotten rid of most of the junk food in the house. I feel like I've reached a now or never point in my life. I want to be healthy, I deserve to be healthy, I WILL get healthy and stay there.

I look forward to sharing my renewed journey with my spark friends.
Together we can do this, get healthy, live healthy, stay healthy.

My Goals:
My goal is to get moving again. Last year I tore 2 tendons in my foot which led to surgery in June 2015. A long recovery led me to much inactivity. While I still have to be careful, it's time for me to move again!

My Program:
I am learning that I like/love exercise along with counting calories and using portion control.

Personal Information:
i'm approaching the BIG
6-0 this summer. A good time to reevaluate where I am in my life.

Other Information:
i am a huge dog lover. My last fur baby passed about 2 1/2 years ago and there has been an empty space in my heart since then. My hubby & myself are avid campers, enjoying the great outdoors. I love to read... Pretty much anything I get my hands on.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog .. Hubby walks faster than I do .. Of course his legs are 6 inches longer .. lol lol . (if not more) .. lol .. I've just come to the conclusion .. I walk MY speed, it's MY walk, and he is coming with ME .. I don't push myself harder, because I know I'll be sore .. and he's noticed, and then slowed down his pace, and noticed and slowed down .. (it's like training a dog when it pulls .. you stop or slow down to a crawl until it realizes .. "hey we're not going to get anywhere until I walk nicely ) well -- it's the same with hubby's .. lol . .. I've told him if "he wants to go .. go .. but I can't afford to push myself and get sore .." and he knows I'm trying my best (because he's seen me the mornings after I've "pushed" .. lol) So yea ..he'll start walking out in front of me .. but I just keep my pace, and when he realizes he's talking to nothing, he slows down until I catch up .. Now he's pretty good .. lol

    As for my last official weekend.. nope .. have 3 more .. My "date" isn't until June 29th (not including my party weekend .. otherwise it's 4 .. :) ) Even though I'm taking off the 4th and the 5th .. because I have a funny feeling my super high from getting ready for this party, is going to come crashing down, and I don't feel like facing everyone with a smily face (I could be surprised .. but I'm just playing it safe) ...

    Anywho .. thanks for stopping by.. :) I love seeing you !!!!
