The literal meaning of my name is "Bee." The interesting thing about bumble bees is, according to the laws of aerodynamics, they can't fly. Their bodies are too big and their wings too small. However, the bee, not knowing any of this information, FLIES ANYWAY!

I have spent far too long paying attention to the other stuff, but now I need to do what I know I can do and BEE HEALTHY!

So, I took a couple years off... not on purpose. I just let life get in the way again. And those 20 pounds I lost a few years ago? They came back. And I'm back to the weight that I hate. Although if we're looking for a positive here, the scale didn't go any higher.

I've had a huge change in my life - our family moved to central New York for my husband's job. That meant leaving my job, my friends, and everything comfortable behind. So now I'm new at everything, and I am not really excited about being new and in this shape. It's time to recommit.

10-10-10: 240 pounds, the heaviest I've ever been. I hate this weight, and now I'm going to change it.
12-13-10: 235 pounds. Going into Christmas, not bad! Have had some motivation from a friend's challenge.
1-30-11: 230 pounds. It's going away! Managed to make it one month on the resolutions!
10-30-11: 220 pounds. Well, that took a while. I was not really consistent about checking in, watching what I was doing, so consequently, I wasn't really consistent about losing weight. But it's been a year and I've lost 20 pounds. That's something! Here's to getting the next 20 off faster!
