Hi. Thanks for stopping by....

I hope you'll join me on my quest to discover the person I've been hiding inside for so many years. This is a mental, spiritual, emotional, social AND physical journey for me. Like any significant quest, I know it won't be easy, but I know the person I will become will be totally worth it! I can't wait to get started doing all the things I told myself I never would because they were for skinny people!

It's a journey I've set out on before...but always for the wrong reasons. The wrong reasons will never work in the long run. I've tried for beauty, for family, for peer pressure, for boys, and for just plain hating myself. It doesn't work that way.

Last year my body has given me some pretty big complaints. I can only believe it is because I need to love it and treat it with the respect it deserves, and that means stop force feeding it crap and move. I never learned when I was younger that food was for NUTRITION...not Boredom, Emotions, Socializing, Celebrating, and definitely not LOVE. That's a hard thing to learn at 35, but I'm getting there. My young niece and nephews are teaching me a lot about how fun it can be to be fit and healthy!

I'd love to have you join me in my adventure. Especially if you live in Phoenix and want to plan activities or just get together and trade recipes. No one can have too much love and support in their lives.

My Best to you all on your Personal Journey's!

    Hi ASH, thanks for asking. It's going well, I just haven't been online in a while. I was getting a little obsessive on here with the counting so I took a break. The summers here in AZ are HOTTTT, and I get overheated easily....so my fitness routine moved to the pool and so did my brain.

    Things are starting to cool back down here, so making that transition back to regular life and routine always feels so scary.

    But I am down another 10lbs since I was here last, and for having a pretty lax attitude all summer I'm gonna say that's awesome!
