"A year from now - you will wish you started TODAY!" Karen Lamb - its what i live by and remind myself everyday.

Hi! I am a 47 year old wife and mother to 14 yrs old twin boys - nice to meet you!

5/12/18 - It has been 12 days now since I weighed myself and I have finally TRULY understood what I am a FOOD ADDICT - So like a drug addict or alcoholic - I have to go cold turkey on sweets and processed carbs - easy? HECK NO - but as the quote goes...

"If it was easy everyone would do it"


Old news but it is good to go back on.....

10/10/17 - I have always wanted to run so today I finally made the 1st step towards that goal and started the couch to 5K program

11/16/16 - A Year from now starts Anew!
I am tired!! and it is time to take back my life - there has been major changes this past year, new job, loss of my MIL recently - per-menopause beginning - all of which has effected my moods and the 60lbs I had lost by 9/15 is more like 16 lbs lost. I do not want to be sitting at my computer on 11/16/17 -wishing i had started today. Am I scared - OH YEAH I am - but if I do not begin to put me first and remember my dreams, wishes and wants - who will?? There are a few things in our lives we have control over - healthy eating is one of them.

11/17/16 - 191.2

My NSV award system ~ I have a silver charm bracelet that I hardly wear - i also have a plain black leather bracelet and every time I loose 5 pounds I am going to take a charm off the silver - put it on the leather one and wear it everyday to remind me how far I have come.

10/29/14 - It is time for a fresh beginning! - It is time to recommit! I have lost my focus - it is time to grab it again and run with it. So far I have lost about 20 lbs but it was 25 at one point - been struggling & scared that I am falling back into my old habits - that my hand and mouth does not have a connection to my brain - there is no thought that goes into what I am eating - it just happens & it is all sweets and carb - unhealthy stuff!! - I do not want to be this way! I want to be strong, confident and happy within my body! THIS IS FOR ME AND ME ONLY!!

My Goals:
To lose weight once and for all - no matter how slow as long as it is steady. I want to feel comfortable in my own skin and not dread having to go someplace and have "nothing" to wear. I want to be me! I am doing this for me and me ONLY! I LOVE my husband and my twins but I also want to love me!

My Program:
As of 5/1/18 - only going to weigh myself once a month if that much, I let the scale determine 2 much of myself worth, dedication and accomplishments - NO MORE -

I have also gone "cold turkey" on sweets and processed carbs - I AM A FOOD ADDICT and like a drug addict or an alcoholic - I just cannot have those things and hope to make my dreams a reality.

Staying within my 1200-1500 calorie range, using my treadmill as much as possible. I also also keeping my sugar intake and white carbs to a minimum.

On 1/17/15 - I started both The Beck Diet Solution, "how to think like a thin person by Judith Beck & Linda Spangles - 100 Days of Weight Loss - going to be blogging about it daily to keep me on the up & up.

Personal Information:
I love to read - my Ipad has the kindle app & it is loaded with Fiction. I love military romances and paranormal romances. I love to be taken into "new worlds" that the author has set the stage for & spending time there.

Other Information:
My family and I rescued/adopted a brother and sister German Shepherd mixed breed pups on March 10th. They have truly changed my life for the better - it has been a challenge but I am LOVIN' it each step of the way. So grateful for them and so glad they came into my life. WE ARE BOTH BLESSED TO HAVE EACH OTHER!

    Say it with me: Some seasons are for growing and some are for
    blooming.No matter what season I am in today..I am enough. I matter.
    I have value. I belong. My life has meaning. Now go out and make it
    a great day.

    If the grass looks greener on the other side stop staring. Stop comparing.
    Start watering the grass you are standing on.Let their grass be green. You
    don't know how much watering they had to go through to get it where it is.
    Put the same effort into watering your grass like you do looking at other peoples
    grass and yours will be green. Enjoy the day.

    If you want to lose weight and strengthen your body,
    don't limit yourself. Many people limit themselves
    to the exercise they think they can do,
    You can strengthen your body as far as your mind lets you.
    Remember, what you believe, you can achieve.
