Okay, so some of you know me and some of you don't. I've been here off and on for several years. Lately, though, it's been more off than on. I have, however, kept going with my weight loss. I've had some really great motivators to keep me on task. i have also had a few speed bumps that have slowed me down, but I'm STILL GOING.

Recap: last time I was here I was down 25 lbs. I gained 10 back, but have now lost that and more! I'm down 41 lbs from my highest weight.

I go to the gym 5 - 6 times a week for cardio, weights and of COURSE the sauna. I also swim and enjoy the hot tub upon occasion.

I'm eating right. I'm learning to cook and I'm enjoying experimenting, though I've had one too many fires in the kitchen to mention :)

First motivator: I went to the eye doctor (yes, eye) and he told me I was diabetic! Scared the junk out of me. He told me "Your blood sugar is probably between 300 and 400 and you need to have it checked immediately." Mind you, he'd not even looked at my eyes by this point. Well guess what honey..My blood sugar (checked the NEXT DAY) was 93. I'm not diabetic. But it scared me and I got motivated.

Second motivator: the ever popular high school reunion. I lost 30 lbs before my reunion....30 lbs! Guess what? I had a BLAST. I looked and felt AMAZING. I had more confidence than I thought I could ever have and it was GREAT! I got noticed by the football players from HS...and I was a band nerd they didn't know existed. They do now! ;)

Third motivator and most important of all: My brother leaving for USMC Basic Oct 20. Just thinking that date puts a knot in my stomach. yes, i'm scared to death, but you know what? It's okay. It's his dream to be a Marine and it's my dream to support him in whatever he wants to achieve. High goal, but he can do it. So anyway, I thought you know what? While he's off getting ripped and sexy at basic, I should do the same here. What a surprise it would be for him to see ME when we go for his graduation date! And who knows..maybe I'll catch me a man while I'm there ;)

Those are my motivators. I have too many speed bumps to say, but they've definitely slowed me down.

So, with all that being said, I'm back. I'm hoping I can get back into the system of logging in and posting every day, but if I miss one or two, I'll be back. Don't you worry!!

With love and support to all!
WE CAN DO THIS.
-Sarah
