I love new beginnings. How wonderful to have a brand new decade stretching before us with endless possibilities. Happy New Year & Happy New Decade!

At this time in my life, I am learning to love myself again. Somehow I've lost my way, but I'm never giving up on myself.

If food = love, I'm choosing the healthiest way that I know how to eat. I know that a plant-based diet works the best for me to lose weight and protect my heart. I'm choosing a whole food version so I get optimum nutrition. I'm supplementing with all the essential nutrients I need to thrive on this eating plan.

My Goals:
Overall Goal: Shed 134 pounds by June 2021 in a healthy way that I can continue for life.

Immediate Goals:
Shed 10 pounds by 1/15/20 (completed 01/16) @ 284
Shed 10 pounds by 2/16/20 (completed 02/12) @273.6
Shed 10 pounds by 3/18

Walk 1 hour by 03/04/20

My Program:
Whole Food Plant-Based eating, based on a mashup of Dr. Fuhrman, Dr. McDougal, Dr. Campbell, Dr. Esselstyn and Dr. Greger's eating plans.

Walk 10 minutes to start, working up to 1 hour a day

Walking, hiking, stretching, silly dancing, marching around the house to full-on marching music (Thanks Alexa), and calisthenics plus exercise bands.

I do a thing I call 20 minute move it. Whenever I sit down at the computer I set a timer for 20 minutes and when it goes off I get up and dance, or march or stretch. It's fun!

Personal Information:
I live in the Arizona mountains at 5400 feet. I have a sweet husband and a blended family of grown kids and grandkids.

Other Information:
Dr. Michael Greger is my hero. Check him out at
