About Me:

I believe in eating healthy and try to avoid processed foods as much as possible. I prefer my own cooking, so that makes it a little easier, but I do love to go out to eat as well, so sometimes I indulge. I lost 40 pounds by changing little things, then slowly challenging myself to do a little more. After reaching my goal weight in Dec. 2012 I have since put back on 9 of the pounds I lost. Nine pounds in less than 2 years is disappointing. There is no excuse. I just got lazy. Stopped exercising regularly and stopped logging regularly. I'm ready to get back to work and get back to my goal.

Why I want to get in shape

I want to feel better and look better.

My Inspirations

  • Approaching 50 and don't want to look it.
  • Prefer to live to a ripe old age without medication as "life support."
  • I've been thin and I've been fat. Thin feels better.
  • Trying to practice what I preach--self care is important!
