Update: 1/14/2020: Well, I just started the 5% Challenge this week with the Cloverleafs. A team I have not been on before. I took some time off from the 5% challenge And the Biggest Loser challenge last season. It was much needed while I sorted my life out. I started the BLC about 7 weeks ago and it's going swimmingly! I am on the Invincible Indigos. It's a lovely team. I don't always have time to check into the chat room but am keeping up (except last week) with the challenges, and DEFINITELY the weigh ins. ;) 7.4 pounds since I started! About 1.5 pounds per week! I am psyched! I also returned to being a vegetarian Thanksgiving Day in 2019. Feeling great!!

My relationships are changing and growing. There's even a new guy that I am "hanging out" with. But I am not trying to be too serious beyond my educational, career, and long-term goals. My son is getting on track too towards returning to school and/or working. God is so good to me and to Him belongs ALL the glory for the changes in my life. I am thankful every day that, with His help, I have turned away and worked on healing what was not working for or in my life. 2020 is our year!!

I re-joined Weight Watchers and Planet Fitness last year about Thanksgiving time. I am down

Update 12/5/19: it's been a year of uos and downs. Sometimes it felt like mostly downs. Lol But Im emerging from a few years of soul searching, looking up from the bottom, and breaking out of my cocoon! Bring on the holidays--and 2020!!

I've been away from SP for a few months due to my "beloved" iPhone being stolen in the summer. It took me a while to recover and get another--albeit crap and rarely works right lol--phone. I'm always on the go so sitting at the library computer was not necessarily always possible. 2019: a year of changes. And as the year cones to a close, I realize there have been some really beneficial changes in my life. I hope to make paying more attention to my health, exercise level, eating habits, and relationship quality a bigger priority as I go forward. What do I want to be when I grow up? 🤷😊

We're starting a new year. I'm excited for t/e possibilities. Woohoo :)

My son is turning 23 this year. A great age, a magical number. I turned 50 last year and am ready to kick that s.h.i.t into high gear!

Update: I’m an Invincible Indigo now.‼️ Loving my new teammates 🙌🏼 I’m a Starfish on 5% challenge too, Meeting a lot iof new and friendly people. Reconnecting with “old” friends too. 😊

2019: here we go! 2+0+1+9=1+2=3. Another mystical number. We're on board. Seeing good changes so far. I lost some weight before Christmas and Thanksgiving and have worked on my cardio through bike riding, extra walking, some sprinting (not by design lol). I joined a 5K your way jog/run tonight on SP. That's a goal for me this year: run a 5K. More later...

5/16/19 update: okay, God is pushing me towards new ways of remaking my life, finding work I love, apparently working for myself! Lol My personal and work life can only further enhance my health and mental fitness.

So SP, I’ll be starting my second Biggest Loser Challenge as an Invincible Indigo 🦄 I love this team! Laidback, relaxed, supportive, fun 🧚🏾‍♂️ Bring on the summer 🌻🌞

I’m also a Starfish in the 5% Spring Challenge. Also a laid back, supportive environment 💫🐠 Loving it!

    You can’t picture DON’T in your mind. If you say, “I don’t want to have debt”, you’re picturing debt! Instead, say, “I want to be financially free”, or “I want to be wealthy”. That’s how you want to picture yourself. Michael Hubbard
