2/19/11 It's more than time to get back on track. I know SP works. I just have to work with it. What kind of mental blocks do I put in my way? Am I afraid to lose weight? Am I just lazy? I don't know, but I do know I'm tired of the weight and not fitting into clothes.

8/20/10 I'm starting over, or perhaps just forging ahead after a big slip up. It's been a long year with a medical problem that ended up in surgery. That finally behind me I'm trying to lose the 25 pounds I put back on. I guess it could have been a lot worse, I could have put it all back on. It's been a real up and down year, but at the end of the day I feel so much better taking care of myself and doing what I should. It not only helps me physically, but mentally and spiritually. So I'm marching on in belief I will conquer my weight problem over time.

It's time for me. It's time for me to rediscover the self I have lost over the years. It's time for me to find happiness for me. It's time for me to invest in myself. It's time for me to finally put my painting first. It's time for me to love myself. It's time for me to be proud and have pride in myself. It's finally, finally, finally time for me to blossom.

I'm the proud mother of two kids, ages 21 & 19. I have been married for 22 years and counting. Finally, it is time for me. I have put off, or started over and over the weight loss journey. This site seems a great tool and support system to achieve my goals while having fun tracking it all. I'm looking forward to making friends and giving each other the support to make positive change happen in our lives.

4/17/09 Going strong! I'm really enjoying tracking my food and exercise. Just started blogging. Ready to kick it up a little and add in some strength training.

6/8/09 Still going strong. I started weight lifting about a month ago and am happy with my progress. It's amazing how fast your body can get stronger. Lifes going well. At little crazy with my daughter's graduation and the upcoming party as well as getting both my kids enrolled in college and all that goes with that. Even with all the challenges I've faced in the last months, I've stayed on track. I now live by the motto, " There are two kinds of pain you can control - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret." When I weigh the two, the pain of regret is much, much harder to live with. I don't want to rock in my rocking chair when I'm old, wishing I had made other choices, wishing I had truly lived my life actively instead of reacting to what went on around me. The pain of discipline has been a joy to embrace. It may have ups and downs along the way, but it always moves me forward, to a life I choose to create.

    I see we're in the same 40something club. Good to have a friend there now :) I figured out the blogging thing too today. Funny how I've been a member for 3 years, but I haven't really used this site until the last week. This is going to be a fun place I think!
