I say to myself - "Girl, you are amazing just the way you are!" I am but do not always feel this way with so much weight to lose. My weight loss journey will be a hard journey but am willing to make it work with baby steps.
I am happy positive person but want to be a little bit healthier & much thinner for this petite body that I have.

#5. Try new foods, fruits, and veggies.

#6. Put me first most of the time!

My Program:
Started Weight watchers online - 1/2016- success of 20 pounds lost in 2016. Not successful on ww freestyle so went back to sparkpeople. Like the food tracking - calories & nutritional values a lot better.

Make very healthy eating as a lifestyle choice.

Do portion control & write down all the food I eat.

Do 80/20 rule-80% food-20% exercise.

Love to cook and making healthier meals to lose weight.

Love living in our home, after living on the road for the last 7 years with my hubby, & enjoying not working after 30 some years in the workforce.

Other Information:
Love to read - all types of books
Love to take pictures & love my digital camera got back in Sept. 2010. It was a must since my film camera didn't work anymore.

    Welcome weekend....take time to smell the flowers, treat yourself to something that makes you happy. Reading time, paint your nails, just sitting quietly listening to nature. What ever you chose make it special for you and enjoy it! emoticon & emoticon

    As we are heading into Autumn & the leaves slowly change color. Let it remind us that change can be so beautiful. Just like the leaves it takes time & is a slow process in changing colors. But oh so beautiful a process it is. Remember turning a leaf over takes time too. Changing in many different aspects of a healthy, happy lifestyle to takes time & patience. But like the leaves changing color, changing a lifestyle is also the making of a beautiful life, changing the color of your leaf to be a better you. emoticon Happy September emoticon emoticon & emoticon emoticon
